8 Auspicious Him View Hotel
Ranked #2 of 67 McLeod Ganj B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We stayed 3 nights at this awesome inn in White Conch Room B, with breakfast and dinner included (they have different pricing options available). After enduring an 8-hour bone jarring bus ride from Amritsar, the inn was a god send.

The room was terrific with aromatic wood decor, it was just like staying in an alpine sky lodge. The view was spectacular! The bathroom was large, spotless, and new looking (it's a no-tub deal but that's normal for India). The shower was super hot. The room was incredibly quiet. Although the October nights were chilly, the room was surprisingly well insulated and we felt really warm inside (I'm not sure what happens when it gets way colder).

The food was great, it's just like home cooking. You order off the menu for breakfast but for dinner, we'd be greeted with a seemingly endless array of delicious vegetarian dishes (it's kind of like chef's choice) since we chose to have dinner included in our room price - veg stir frys, pakora, momo's, pasta, soups, etc. There was even dessert to boot! The chocolate cake was divine. I totally got hooked on the ginger lemon honey tea - perfect for chilly weather!

The service was fabulous. Sonam and company are so, so nice and helpful. They even let us do late check-out until like 5pm because we had a 9pm night train to catch. They helped us arrange a very comfortable sedan to take us to Pathankot to take this night train (we arrived without a problem thank heavens as we were driving on narrow, winding roads without barriers in pitch dark night for 2 hours).

The location was great. A quick jaunt up a hill (not as steep as others suggested) and you were in town in about 10 minutes by foot. The town is super small with lots of shopping. Next time, I'd ask for bus station pick up from Dharamsala because the taxi had a lot of trouble finding the inn (the inn's sign is not visible from the road and hidden behind a big tree!).

Overall excellent stay, I would definitely stay again.

After going through the reviews in tripadvisor, we decided to stay here. Spoke to Sonam (one of the owners), booked ourselves here from 29/10/13-31/10/13. Arrived by the Jammu rajdhani, at pathankot early (3:30a.m). Booked cab through the hotel, Bittu ji was there to receive us, reached the hotel by 5, as there was no traffic, while coming back it took us 21/2 hours . The fish bowl room, a clean room, facing the dauladhar mountains. Sonam helped us with the map of mc leodganj and we walked( husband and son-10yrs), and took the route back through Dharamkot via the TIPA. Worth the walk, beautiful pine trees, unpolluted. Food is freshly prepared, after we order. The sisters are always smiling and ready to help. The place is still not corrupted. Genuine people, whole of mc leodganj, ready to help with a smile, had a great time walking around, lovely weather. We preferred having our breakfast at Crepe pan cake, a 300 metre walk uphill before the market, as the options were in plenty, though my son preferred his aloo paratha, which he happily got only here. No complaints, Infact though we checked in early in the morning, we were only charged for two days, the station to hotel transfers may sound steep (1900), but the rates are the same or more around, verito of the hotel was very comfortable.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The place is located on jogiwara road and you have to walk uphill to reach the main market area of Mcleodganj. If you have problems walking, don't stay here then! The breakfast options are plenty but don't expect everything under the sun. Indian breakfast options include just parathas.

I stayed here now for the third time & would not stay anywhere else in McLeod Ganj.
The rooms, while simple, are so pleasant, hardwood floors & walls, good enough beds & quilts (ask for). The views on their own are good enough a reason to come and choose between watching water falls coming down the himalayas while you rest in bed/ sit with a book & a great cup of tea on the porch of your room or trek amongst them (Sonam is happy setting guests up with a guide a pone request).
The food is pure veg. hygienic, tasty & healthy and listening to the cook singing in pleasure while preparing it adds the spice of love to it.
Te service, oh the Service. Sonam, her sisters & the entire staff are kind & went out of their way to be helpful. Sonam replied to emails immediately, when I shortened my stay at the last minute, she was cool with it, she contacted me to let me know that they had a cab that would be dropping a guest off in Pathankot & that I could ride up with for half the usual rate, they supplied me with the most accurate info re. H.H. teachings & Kunga even accompanied me on my visit to the Dalai Lamas doctor & last, a pone leaving at 6 am, one of them was standing there handing me my hot breakfast packed for the way!
I found the price to be quite reasonable yet, its not being too low assures a somewhat mature and quiet population of people who choose to stay here.
Looking forward to my next stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the mountain view.

Homey, clean, nice staff, kitchen ok, awesome view. Taxi pickup at airport worked really well. Too expensive, though, should have been cheaper. The problem is that the hotels in Mcleod Ganj are horrible...

We booked this on a recommendation from a friend and we were very happy to have done so; While the hotel is more of a home-stay category but what strikes you imm is that its done up with a lot of love and care and has a character; The same attitude is also visible in the staff; Right from the time you register you are taken care of;
The bathrooms were clean and good and the heating equipment was in perfect working condition. The beds and towels were also in good conditions.
The only drawback, and also benefit to some is that its not bang on the middle of the hustle bustle and the restaurant is vegetarian; But the food is awesome, the aaloo parathas are a must here for bfast!

Room Tip: There are 3 category rooms, the top floor ones are with the best view; We were on a budget and settl...
