Nice hotel on the mountain foothill
This is a rather small place. The rooms are just above average. The people working there are service oriented. The views from the room and the resort are excellent nice and picturesque.

Beautiful views
Nice hotel with great staff and good meal options. Room was comfortable and clean, views of the mountains were great and the creek is easily accessible for short walks and easy hikes. Cabs are readily available and the hotel has access to an awesome tour guide for trekking and more adventurous hikes as well as tours of the area.

Nice peaceful location of the hotel
I had stayed in this hotel for a period of three days .It was located away from Mc Leod Ganj in Dharamshala, around 10kms away.The place is comfortable , clean with excellent staff that is both pleasant and helpful. It is a little far from the main market , so choose this place if you have a vehicle at your disposal all the time to take you around. Overall a great place to stay in Dharamshala........

Hello, Positives - Everything was as mentioned on the hotel page. No issues with that really. Negatives - I had booked this hotel for my parents for 3 days through (the payment had already been done in advance). At checkout, my parents were charged for 3 days room stay - AGAIN! Didn't expected this kind of treatment to elderly people by such a reputed group. Expecting refund. Expecting action.

Good value and comfortable.
The hotel is in a quiet location with great views from rear. Staff are very helpful and friendly and the breakfast is excellent. It is a bit remote from the action at McLeod Ganj which is a £4 taxi ride away up the mountain. A nice place to return to after a day out.
