Horizon Villa - North
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We had a recent vacation at McLeod Ganj and wanted to visit the Dalai Lama Temple, hence the location was just perfect. It is a bit away from the tourist attractions, but right next to the Dalai Lama temple & a small monastery. It is a holiday home more than a hotel and the service supplement the same. The location and view from the villa is truly fascinating while the calmness & serenity of the surrounding put you at ease. While we really enjoyed some great home cooked food at the Villa, it is a short walk from the market with more dining options. We had a short stay and can;t wait to go back again. It would be our choice of accommodation at McLeod Ganj for future.

Me and 3 friends stayed there for 2 night in the first week of Jan'14, We didnt pre book a place and we randomly landed up at this place.

Pros:-
Off the Hustle Bustle on a quiet track.
Very Beautifully Built with all the modern amenities
Courteous staff.
Amazing Homelike food.
Excellent Sleep quality.
Lots of open space to sit and chit chat, or to light a bonfire.
Amazing view of the valley.

Cons:-
Might be a lil heavy on pocket for some.
A lil away from the main market.

All in all its a paradise for travelers like me who are interested to stay away from the concrete jungle, away from the markets and just rest in peace..!!

Room Tip: Take room no 101

There is an element of mystique when you mention the name McLeod Ganj and we found our cute little haven in Horizon Villa, a beautiful property tucked very close to Dalai Lama Temple. The lounge and the rooms in the Villa are beautifully furnished. The Deluxe room with the French Windows offers a panoramic view. But on the down side food here leaves a lot to be desired. It is advised to pick your parcels from Ashoka restaurant or any other place and then use the micro in the room to reheat for consumption. The staff is very hospitable and the Star of the resort is their pet Pomeranian, Sweety, who was seen challenging a pack of dogs in a neighboring compound. Close proximity to the shopping area is an added advantage. A lovely halt not too far from the Kangra Airport.

Room Tip: Opt for Super Deluxe room with a view They are more spacious and bright.

We stayed there on 27th Dec'13 night. Off location, no scenic beauty from room, over priced and no value for money. It is not belongs to any of categories Hotel, Villa or resort. 3 Rooms is having in each floor of two stories building. Poor service and pathetic food. Over priced food. There are lots many other option & good property available at Mcleodganj.
Must avoid and rethink for booking.

Location with valley view but the view is not that great. Extremely poor service. Internet was not available at all (apparently the hotel guy had taken it to his home!) if you are just looking for a clean room with decent amenities then its ok. Not recommended.

We checked in at the property on 27th of June 2013 on the first floor. Reached little late in the town , but decided to stay within seconds of having a look at it. Very nice location , Excellent view , Beautifully done interiors.

The approach to the nearby market place and the temple is easy, though few metres are too steep , but if you want to walk down , theres a way from the back side of the property as well.

The owners have done a good work , and especially the Manager is very hospitable and very proactive to guide and share the details about the town .

But...
First Class property owners and Very Good manager leave their guests on the mercy of Third Class attendants to serve everything fourth class. Though we were travelling with the family, No alcohal, No shor sharaba , still their attitude was so irritating and inhuman that one must go either in the groups or carry something alongwith to break their heads.

Next morning we decided to move out of the property and moved at some other Nice property for another two nights, and enjoyed our stay.

The bungalow is located on a road behind Dalai Lama's temple complex. The place was hard to find because a lot of people did not know about it. Access to the road in restricted so we had the driver park the car at the bungalow and then walked to town when needed. The parking spot is down a dirt road so don't be fooled. This place is quiet and serene. Quite unlike noisy India.

The hotel overlooks the Kangra valley and the Dhauladhars mountain range is behind the hotel

The rooms are very nice and feels like staying in a home. You depend on the staff for cooking but they do an AMAZING job! Before you venture out for the day, let them know what you want to eat for dinner.

The only issue we had which was not the hotel's fault was a power outage which lasted the whole night but we were provided hot water bottles.
