“Better than Expected in a Remote Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

The Srikhand is billed as the best hotel in Sarahan, though possibly without a great deal of competition. It had a terrific view, both from the dining room and from the garden where staff were happy to keep us plied with drinks and snacks before dinner.

Rooms were basic, but comfortable and reasonably neat and clean.

Room Tip: Our room was around the corner from the 'general' toilet facility - that is, the facility us...

In my opinion, definitely one of the best located & better run HPTDC hotel thanks to their knowledgeable & experienced manager Mr Negi. Lush red pink roses and white lilies welcome you as you enter this hotel. The rooms & bathrooms are big & spacious and quite clean. But for those old dirty carpets in the bedroom! Please can someone ask HPTDC to remove these 20 year old carpets - they stink! Besides that we honestly cannot find any fault with this hotel. The hotel is located on an overhanging cliff, almost straight out of James Bond movies! The main attraction of Sarahan ie. the spectacular Bhimakali Temple is a 5 minutes walk. We also walked up the hill to experience a beautiful sunset against the Himalayan ranges & the Bhimakali temple and on our way back stopped to see the royal palace owned by the current CM Virbhadra Singh. Food here is delicious, especially their continental stuff, which completely took us by surprise! The chicken sizzler & caramel pudding were close to the best I've ever tasted! So definitely worth a stopover if you are travelling to Sangla - Kalpa or beyond.

Room Tip: We chose DBR cozy deluxe with balconies offering fantastic view of the Himalayan ranges

Good hotel with a great view. Take room with balcony. sunset view was great. Service was good and you can visit very old temple just opposite to hotel. If you do not want continuous journey to kalpa hotel sarahan will be good option to stay for one night. Next early morning you can start for kalpa.

Sarahan was more of a stopover for our further journey into Spiti Valley. I didn't expected much out an HPTDC managed resort but I was quite surprised to see it well maintained. Big clean room with great views. The bathrooms too very huge and spotless.Food was delicious & service staff was very nice. The resort is located right next to Sarahans main attraction, the Bhimakali temple. Apart from the rooms they also have a big cottage which can accommodate 3 families. A small lawn in front of this cottage makes a good seating space to watch sunsets.

A very select place to start journy for Kinnaur. Good location as very close to Great Bheemakali Temple n proximity to great himalayan range. In clear weather we can see Srikhand Peak from here. Food quality is pretty good n palatable with good service. Though they r litl late t rise n no tea coffee maker at room may pose litl prblm. Otherwise nice place to unwind for 2t3days. Early morning nature walk n bird watching is great. Good toilet with geyser working nice is of great benefit. Price is bit high but acceptbl.

We stayed in the cottage for one day on our way to Sangla from Fagu. Excellent property overlooking the srikhand peak and Bhimakali temple by its side. I felt great at the lap of nature. Rooms in the cottage are very spacious (almost 1000 Sqft room) and well maintained. Food was standard and service was great. We met Mr Negi there who gave us valuable tips for our onward journey to Sangla and Kalpa. A great place to be in.

Room Tip: Take the Cottage 2 (middle one).

The Srikhand, as are all HPTDC hotels, is in the best location of Sarahan. The rooms have amazing views.
It is clean with prompt service and if you book online, ensure you take a print of your confirmation. The manager and staff are quite helpful.
The hot water takes a while to come and make sure you get a room with a view. Try to book DBR Cozy Deluxe ( With Private Balcony).
Carry your own toiletries and do not expect and luxuries.

Room Tip: DBR Cozy Deluxe ( With Private Balcony)
