It was an extraordinary stay at the Grand view. As its in the name, every moment in the hotel was made enjoyable for us in grand style. All the stars to the helpful and professional staff. Extravagant food in the buffet. Will definitely recommend....

Room Tip: Better to go for the luxury rooms rather than deluxe.

Everything here just catapults the Dalhousie experience to another level... Amazing view, courteous staff, nice food with soothing live music, campfire, play areas n just the overall ambience.... Extremely delightful. There is nothing much to do in Dalhousie.... So just sit back , laze around and enjoy the GRAND experience....must visit.....

I had booked luxury room for two nights, the balcony view was excellent, the room was big and spacious. It was built in modern style but I was more impressed with rooms on ground floor which were built in heritage style, I requested the hotel staff to change the room and they acceded to my request immediately. I liked the room very much but found it little colder. The food with live music was a superb experience. They had good singer and also allowed guests to sing.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights - 4 days in Room No. 404 from July 26th 2014. One of the best hotelling experiences of my life in terms of best value for money option in the given budget size. I am narrating my experience on all important factors:

Location – Hotel is very conveniently located right near Bus Stop. Though its Bus Stop but not so crowded or noisy. But the moment you enter the hotel premises the world changes altogether. Nice entrance, the narrow footpath with blooming flowers on both sides takes you to small Reception of Hotel. After reception ends, the rooms starts and you are welcomed with a nice, beautiful view and surroundings with lots of flowers, seating areas and panoramic view of majestic mountains.

Property – The Grand View is really a property which presents the blend of old world charm and modern luxury accommodation. Its rooms are divided in 2 blocks. First one is the old structure which is very beautiful and well maintained. The ground floor rooms are also having a small drawing area inside, which opens to lawns of beautiful flowers. After the lawns, there is a beautiful sitting area for every room where you will find yourself very close to clouds if its rainy season. Similar rooms are there on first floor. The second block, which is a newly constructed building just on the back of old structure is a perfect luxury. Nicely furnished big rooms with wide balcony with panoramic view of majestic mountains- everything is well planned to make you feel comfortable. Monkeys are a menace there and you need to be very careful.

Maintenance – As I said earlier, the entire property is very well managed and maintained. One thing to note here that promoters are themselves engaged into day to day operation of the hotel and they ensure that there are no lapses on maintenance part of the hotel. Be it cleanliness of rooms, bathrooms, regular repairs and trimming of plants etc. I found everything is religiously done on a regular basis.

Behavior & Promptness - The best part of my stay experience. Not only the hotel staff didn’t gave us any chance to complaint but they amazed us every time with their prompt delivery of services. On top of it the promoters keep an eye on ‘order to delivery time’. While my stay I got a surprise call from the promoter lady asking that what time I had given my order and whether I received it within time or not. Sometime they also asked to suggest the ways for further improvement for which of course I didn’t find an answer because for me it was hospitality at its best.

Promoters Involvement – You will find them every day in restaurant at dinner time. The promoter either Mrs. Chaddha or her daughter Ms. Radhika will be there and keep a close watch that every guest is being served properly, the replenishments are coming timely, any special request is being fulfilled immediately. Not only that they make a point to greet you whenever you are leaving the restaurant after finishing your dinner. It was really an amazing experience for us.

Foods – The hotel arranges buffet breakfast and dinner besides the servicing of a-la-carte ordering from rooms. The spread of buffet is excellent and you can’t expect anything better in the given budget. The taste of foods is awesome – be it baked vegetables, fruit salads, different varieties of Pulao, Assorted Breads, vegetables, Pastas, south Indian recipes and the desserts. We enjoyed our food every time. The best part is that your dinner is complimented by candle light and live music which takes you back to old world charm and you cherish every moment of it.

Activity Centre- Additionally they have an activity centre on top floor of new building, which has several games for entertainment of kids. This place is also used for get together of guests for games like Hauzi and dancing etc.

Overall our 3 nights 4 days stay was really amazing. We were delighted with the kind of hospitality shown to us and we strongly feel like coming back here every time we come to Dalhousie. I strongly recommend this Hotel to all my co-travellers.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, neat & clean. Old Block is very beautiful structure in the midst of flowers...

I stayed in the hotel from 12th to 15th Feb and that wonderful experience is still fresh in my memory and has forced me to write a review for the hotel as i am planning my second visit to Dalhousie. The hotel lives up to its name as the view from the rooms is fantastic and perhaps cannot be described in words. The hotel has two type of rooms- heritage rooms and the modern rooms. Though, i had booked 3rd floor- corner- deluxe-modern room with an amazing view but i was fortunate enough to stay in the heritage room for one night.

Following are some of the good features of the Grand View Hotel;-
1. Excellent location, close to the mall road and bus stop.
2. Extremely cordial staff.
3. Spacious rooms.
4. 24*7 hot water supply.
5. Tasty food with lots of variety.
6. Hassle free check-in and check-out.
7. beautiful lawn.

The only short-coming that i had noticed was that the some of the heritage rooms need immediate renovation.

Mrs Chadha, the owner of the hotel was the perfect host. She even arranged a grand party on the eve of the Valentine's day. we enjoyed the party till late night. i would advice you to take the MAP plan and make your bookings in advance to avoid the rush during the peak season. Last but not the least, keep the windows of your room closed otherwise you may end up spending night with monkeys..... :)

Amazing experience at Grand View Hotel, provided package at best prices.
Location is very near to city centre i.e, subhash/gandhi chowk.

Service was very nice, one person Shayamlal(not sure) has taken very good care of all our requirements.

Dining was followed by a good singer having collections of all classics as well as new songs.
Recreational areas was also equipped with table tennis, carrom, fuzzball etc.
Not to be forgotten about sauna, steam and jacuzzi bath provided.

All places like dainkund, kalatop, khajjar are very nearby within 20km.
