“A nice place to stay”
Reviewed 10 May 2009

This place is clean and comfortable and gives a homely atmosphere. I had gone to chandigarh for official work and found it spacious, nice interior, good amenities but they need to improve upon food services specially room service. Above all, its near to city centre

typically Goverment hotel. You have the basics - like it or not.

All facilities are there but nothing great to talk about. Rooms are big but the toiletiries in the room are awful.

Staff is least bothered about guest care and take their own time to respond.

Front office staff is very slow and unsmart

Stayed December 2008

We were a party of six adults and two children. We arrived late in the evening but the check-in was very prompt. Our 3 rooms were ready, clean, spacious and comfortable; and adjoining as requested. The front desk staff was helpful and curteous. The inclusive buffet breakfasts and dinners were good and there was plenty of choice of good food. All hotel staff was polite and ready to please. We stayed there twice during our travels in Punjab. We enjoyed the hospitality and felt at home. Its proximity to a large shopping area make it a perfect location.The hotel is a Govt run and credit goes to Vijay Gupta, its GM for this well run hotel. It is a very populat venue for marriages and we had an opportunity to witness two colorful and cheerful marriage ceremonies.

I have stayed in this hotel four times with each stay being almost one week. Having read some of the negative reviews I wonder if these people have really spent much time traveling out of the states. The staff at Shivalikview have always been helpful and kind. Although, as in most cases it is not entirely up to American standards, I find it to be lovely, safe, comfortable and pleasant. If you are looking for a wild night life or party life this is a more refined atmosphere.
Wireless Internet works fine. If you need a cable bring your own for goodness sake.
I asked for something during my last stay and was told that the hotel was mine and anything a guest wanted would be granted. Driving service is available in the lobby and I have found it to be safe and reliable.
The manners of staff are impeccable. I suggest you stay during the Indian wedding season. Wedding parties may be observed on the beautiful third floor veranda and are amazing. The rose garden, a tour bus and shopping are all near by.
I will be staying there again in April. the mountain view is wonderful.
One other reviewer mentioned french fries. Some of the people who have traveled with me are not adventurous diners, they find the french fries great. The restaurants are pleasant and a good variety available.

I visited this hotel with my family in the month of October, and we just simple fall in love with this. The welcome was overwhelming.
The reception desk was very helpful. The check in process was very easy.

The room was very spacious. Proper cooling. Bathroom emenities were more than enough.

We had their two meals - Dinner and Breakfast. Both were fantastic.

All the staffs were very helpful & courteous.
In a single word: This hotel was beyond our expectations.

My wife and I travel a great deal. If we choose to 'rough it' and stay
in a down level hotel, thats fine. But to be charged $200+ USD a night for such a poor room is unacceptable.

The important points:

1) Our room included a free dinner. This was a buffet off from the lobby of the hotel. I got food poisoning, and was up all night extremely ill in the bathroom. I was so sick that it took a round of antibiotics to get me back to health.

2) The room was filthy. Tattered, dirty carpet. A bathroom that looked like it had barely been wiped down with a rag. Just repulsive.

3) After being told we would have an internet connection, there was no cable in the room to connect to the port in the wall. No problem, right? Well, it is a big problem if the staff are not interested in helping. After a half and hour of arguing with the staff, one woman finally took on our cause, and forced
the other staff members to find a cable. It only took them 2 minutes.There really was no shortage of cables, they simply did not want to be bothered with our problem.

Run, run, run away. This is NOT a good hotel. If this is your only option, save yourself the headache, and stay in a cheap hotel. It may not be nice either, but at least you will have save yourself the humiliation of paying $200 to have an unpleasant experience.
