“Nice property”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Grand view Dalhousie is definately the best hotel in Dalhousie. It offers breathtaking views, good food and prompt services.

We stayed in the Luxury room & it offered stunning valley views. It had a private sit out facing the balcony - its extremely difficult for have a snack or tea in this area as they are huge Monkeys around who may jump in anytime. Management seriously needs to do something about this.

The rooms are tastefully decorated and look modern. Washroom is clean and offered a bath tub too.

Food is of good quality & they offer decent varieties on the menu, though the prices are on higher end & room service has additional tax for service.

The restaurant is located in another building, different from the place where rooms are located. We thought this was little out of place.

The approach road to the reception (from the main road) has a steep slope and would be challenging for old aged people to climb it.

The resort offers complimentary use of the movie library which has a decent collection of movies.

All in All a good stay!

We stayed in the Royal Suite of Grand View for 6 nights from 3rd to 9th Oct 2013. The USP of this beautiful hotel is its hospitality which is driven right from its owners Mr. and Mrs. Chadha, who also stay in the same hotel premises. Royal suite offer two connected rooms – one with a double bed and the other one with sofa-cum-bed and a dining table. Both the rooms were very comfortable and best suitable for a small family. It is situated on the bus stand and very conveniently located. Markets and local commuting options are very close.

Staff is very polite and willing to help going beyond the extra mile. Housekeeping and room services are very prompt. I suggest some regular maintenance checks in the bathrooms to keep the property up-to-date.

Our package option included breakfast and dinner. The food was simple, delicious and always served with a smile. Menu keeps changing regularly. Irrespective of the number of guests, you always get personal attention on your table. Owners personally supervise the dinner arrangements. A daily live singing program during dinner and the frequent bonfire make the stay very special. Hotel’s sister concern Kwality restaurant at the Gandhi Chowk serves delicious preparations.

The mountain view from the room windows and balcony was really great and one of the best parts of the hotel property.

While staying in Dalhousie we were wondering why this small and beautiful hill station is not as popular as Shimla, Nainital and Mussoorie. Grand View hotel made our vacation very special. Without any hesitation, I can say this is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed. I highly recommend this.

Room Tip: The hotel has two blocks - imperial and luxury. Imperial block is older and provide very elegant and...

I don't have anything to rave about the hotel or its service as mentioned in reviews here, however I can definitely mention that the room view from the new wing was absolutely breathtaking and fabulous. The rooms were clean including the bathrooms, however the doors were not well maintained and we had trouble opening and closing all the doors. Rest of it were all perfect. Staff at the reception was courteous. Restaurant service was good. The waiters were good, however we did not find the manager very pleasing. There was absolutely no smile on his face all the 3 days that we got to see him. The least you expect in a hotel is their staff greet you and put up a smile on their face atleast when their customers are around. Unfortunately that bit was lacking amongst some of them at the hotel. Else a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Opt in for the Luxury rooms which are at the top. The views you get from here, you cannot get in any...

We are still nostalgic about our 4 days stay at this beautiful resort.The old world charm of the heritage block combined with the modern day comforts and big hearted hospitality of the owner and staff simply overwhelmed us. Buffet breakfast generously laid out gave each day a boost which ended with bonfires,DJs and our favorite karaoke in the family like atmosphere of the dining room. Food was good and the resort beautifully and hygienically maintained. Looking forward to our next holidays there.

What a Property, beautiful Rooms(Luxury Block), spacious, elegantly decorated, large Balcony, everything Perfect. Check in took less than 2 mins. Our room was on the Luxury Block --2nd Floor. Food was excellent, Breakfast had lot of choices, South Indian, North Indian and Continental too. Dinner was awesome, Veg and Non-Veg dishes were very tasty and less spicy. Service was the highlight. Bon-fire was arranged one day. Table tennis and Carrom was available in the activity area. Would definitely recommend.

One of the best located hotel in the city with personalized attention by staff and owners. Excellent food and good spread in dinner buffet. We stayed for 3 days and not even once were there any repetition in the menu. The best part is as u are through with dinner you would be greeted by a sweet voice, " Hello! I am Radhika, the owner of the hotel." She makes it a point to greet each and every guest personally and inquire about the feedback about food.

The hotel also arranges for Bonfire and Tambola along with DJ music on the rooftop of the new building. The Grany of the family is the showwoman there and organizes tambola beautifully. Gifts are distributed by the hotel staff.

The hotel has two wings the heritage and the new building. The reception, dinning hall and garden view rooms are in the heritage wing. However we stayed in the new building in the luxury rooms. Would recommend the new block to the heritage if you love some privacy and would also have a better view of the valley as they are at a higher hill. The weather was pleasant, nor hot nor very chill. Children can wear half sleeves during morning and evening.

The sauna bath after a days walk is most refreshing and relaxing. All in all a lovely destination to have a family vacation. If its Dalhousie its got to be Grand View Hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the new block as the rooms offer a better view of the valley if you are not very particular a...
