We stayed here in mid june for 2 nights. It is located a little ahead of dharamsala city on the way to Mcleodganj, 10 kms in a quiet place. It makes it quite convenient if you want to go to dharamsala market - kotwali bazaar, chamunda devi temple, mata kunal pathri temple, tea gardens which are all towards dharamsala and at the same time upwards to Mcleodganj and Naddi (last point by road). So we spent days at crowded, noisy tourist spots during the day but still could get a sound sleep at this nice hotel at night. Saves you also from the traffic of mcleodganj. We booked the rooms online, though there is no online mode of payment but they provide you with their account number and you can transfer half the amount. We were little apprehensive about that but turned out to be reliable. They do provide room service for food, dnt have a restaurant but watever they provide tastes good. Also, there are 2-3 restaurants nearby as well. City heart restaurant in kotwali bazaar is nice. Food at Dharamasala & Mcleodganj is little cheaper than in Delhi and around. The hotel has a valley view and mountain view, both are amazing as mountain view gives u snow peaked mountains right outside your window. We took the premium rooms with AC, though we didnt use AC but they are new I believe so very neat and clean, very spacious rooms and washrooms. Just do not leave anything expensive behind, coz the hotel staff didnt even lock the doors to the rooms after cleaning :| and when we told them they just said, oh is it? And they do provide hot water in the bathroom at all times, but of course you should take bath around 8am if you want to leave early for sightseeing coz if ppl in all rooms start using hot water at the same time, it becomes a prob. Though rest everything was quite good including the parking space, ambience, staff. Overall I will recommend this hotel strongly and would love to stay here again.
