We had no prior booking, so we got booked through a Shivalik group agent and booked a family room. We were charged 2000 Rs for a family room which was actually 1600 i found out later.
Pros - The location is good, 10mins walk from the market place and is quiet. Its located on the road running along the Beas, but u dont get a view of it from hotel. You need to take a few steps to see it. The hotel structure is impressive. Food is palatable, not delicious though. Family room was spacious.
Cons - Power cutoff is frequent and do not expect the geyser to run all the time. Though you might have a separate geyser in your bathroom, it did not run for us. The water logged bathroom wont run dry anytime and we had to step in with crooked faces all the time. The carpets seemed to be cleaned a month ago and the beds were'nt fresh. Room service was ok with food served in 50 mins which seemed reasonable for us. The room had an attached balcony but i dint feel like stepping into it as it had cigarette buds and water bottles scattered all around. The balcony was at the rear end, so no view.
Tips - Do not check into this hotel if cleanliness is the thing you are looking for. Overall, the hotel room is good with all fittings, but check if every gadget runs fine. If you are traveling during the high season like we did (May-June), please book the room in advance and insist that its cleaned when you arrive.
