stayed 3 N with booking of 6 rooms, all families . stay was good, Rooms are better than other hotels but have scope of improvements. Hotel has a restaurant serving delicious food but since not used by majority so serves slow. ample parking available with fun area for kids outdoors. overall, a nice place to holiday.

Room Tip: SD rooms are better with view.

The hotel is located in a very peaceful place.good hotel, good staff , good budget three star hotel, nice place good location, Rooms in this hotel was very good, interior of the room was fantastic.This hotel is situated near Bhagsunag Mandir and Bhagsunag Waterfall. front office team is good , in-room dining food is good with excellent service. You can also Try good food at German bakery which is just above at the straight road of this hotel. They also have beautiful garden in front and ample parking space.The only drawback is this hotel in little bit far from main mcloadganj market but good point is Bagsu also have its own good market, But when you walk though bagsu to main mcload market you can see very beautiful nature during walk.

Room Tip: We stay at first floor in the middle as they dont have balcony. The corner rooms have balcony.

This hotel is situated near Bhagsunag Mandir and Bhagsunag Waterfall. It is bit upper than main place of Dharamshala i.e Mcloedganj. Rooms in this hotel was very good, interior of the room was fantastic. It was spacious as well, so that any guest will not feel congested. We did not tried the food for many time, but the breakfast was awesome. Hotel has small garden as well, that was very much near to our room as our room was on ground floor. People were good and understandable. Overall a very nice and value for money hotel.!!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

We stayed at Meghavan for two nights.

First things first - Meghavan is not in Dharamsala; neither in McLoedganj. It's in a small place called Bhagsunag (where the Bhagsu waterfall is located), which is about 2 kms further up from McLoedganj.

Around April onward, this area (Bhagsunag) turns into a hub for Israelis. Indians will find themselves outnumbered by Israelis around that time. Also, that is the time when there is a lot of life in the area (bakeries, massage parlors etc).

Back to Meghavan now. Meghavan is on a steep climb of about half a minute on foot and easily accessible from the road.

It's easy to spot, too.

Remember on thing - you don't have many great hotels in the area. And this one would be a 'decent' one. I am not sure of the star rating, but it's a hotel where you can take your family to. You just have to be a little careful about many things though.

Good things:
- They have a decent car park that can accommodate about 5 to 10 cars easily. This is a BIG plus for that area.
- You can do a lot of negotiation on the rates. So, don't book on phone (and don't pay advance) if you're not going in peak season. Just head to the reception and talk to them.
- I personally believe the rates were not that high compared to the value you'd get. And yes, do negotiate.
- The local wine shop, pool room, Bhagsu temple are all nearby. The location (even in the small Bhagsu village is pretty decent).
- They have an excellent garden and sitting area next to the parking. You can spend a lot of quality time there. You can even manage some beers there if you don't make a lot of noise.
- Nice, wooden flooring.
- Decent room size. By no standard would you call it small (we stayed in a classic room).

Bad things:
- The cold drinks in their mini bar were all expired. Be careful.
- If you don't want the bill, they won't tax you. This may be good for some people... but eventually, it's a bad thing, right?
- Don't go by the room categories and corresponding prices basis their words. The reception guys are a little deceitful. Check for yourself the different categories of rooms first. They may show a smaller category of room and call it the 'classic' one. Just be a little careful.
- The lighting in rooms is a bit poor.
- There are many wash room issues. Check the wash room before booking the room.
- Hotel staff stares at you. Not the friendliest of staff I'd say.
- Ground, first, and second floor... no lift.
- Curtains are not good. It is tough to cover all windows angles.
- No sound proofing. You can easily hear what's going on outside.
- Tissue rolls provided by them are pretty small. And strangely, they told me they won't give two of them at a time. Only one at a time.
- You have to keep the tap running for quite some time to get hot water. This results in a lot of wastage.
- There are no views as such. But of course, you can see the mountains.

Note: I did not try hotel food, so can't comment.

Overall: There are many negatives and few positives of this place. However, personally, I think some people will find good value for money here... but you need to be careful. And yes, it's a place you can stay with your family.

Room Tip: Check the rooms of different categories (and corresponding wash rooms). I liked the Classic room on...
