"Excellent Stay "

7.0/7
Posted 5 months ago

The hotel is suitable for family. The restaurant offers excellent menu. The staff are very helpful. Also I remember the restaurant team was too good. They make awesome dosas and a la carte is also good. One of the day we had been for sightseeing came back around 4 pm and the restaurant closes at 3 in spite of that they went out of the way to prepare hot lunch as I was not well to eat from outside. Every day the housekeeping in charge would make sure that we were comfortable and the chef made it a point to interact to find whether we were happy with the food. Our room was facing the river view. Good place to have a relaxed holiday. We meet with Resort General Manager and he guided us sight seeing for Karmapa Monastery and Norv Lanka Handicraft, my wife really love that. After that we visited McLeodganj and we visited Dalai lama temple and bhagsunag water fall. Once Again Special thanks Mr. Anurag Dhiman and his entire team for their hospitality and we will come back again.

"A wonderful stay for family & couples"

6.3/7
Posted 2 years ago

I went there in the first week of September-2015 with my wife on her birthday. Its is located on Khyanyara road on the way to Chamunda devi its a left from aroma bakery. It is located near a river flowing from the mountains and the location is awesome. Rooms were clean and properly maintained. Service is awesome. Mr. Manoj the chef over there was very helpful as my wife is celiac patient and she can't have gluten, so he prepared the food as per our demand. There was a activity hall in the basement of the resort pool, table tennis, karaoke, carom, badminton and a lot of fun activities also one can go at the backside of the resort near water flowing from mountains. The food quality is awesome. Also spa facility is available over there which I like the most and took the Swedish massage. Loved the place and service. Try to take the river view rooms as the view from there is very beautiful. Also they arrange different activities and tours on request. The part is they can make arrangements for birthdays and special occasions on have to make them inform prior visit. Also I have marked it on google maps so that it will be easy for people to find it.

"Wonderfully Serene Sanctuary for the Body & Soul"

6.3/7
Posted 2 years ago

There were 04 of us, My Mother, Cousin & Wife, in 02 Dbl Rooms for a four night vacation, in the Middle-of-June 2015. The location of the hotel is beautiful, with a 360 degree view of the mountains wrapped around on three sides and a gurgling mountain brook flowing on the other side. You could spend hours sitting on the balcony of the room Or gazing out through the French-Windows. It is serene and makes for beautiful walks in and around Norbulingka and a climb down to the brook. You have direct access to it from the hotel itself enjoy sitting around soaking in the surroundings. If you have the time and inclination, go to the terrace and watch the sunset it's lovely. We were there in the midst of the monsoons & the clouds would come floating down into the valley. An awesome feeling to be surrounded by that mist. The staff is very friendly & approachable and quick to help. But the Food & Bar service department really needs to pull up their socks. Not so much the food quality. But the variety. Not so much the eagerness of the service staff. But the time taken for the food to come onto your table! The food at the restaurant takes forever to be made. The first day when we checked in, we were ravenous but were made to wait for an hour for lunch. However, all the food is freshly made. From thereon, we would order our meals about 45 mins in advance, and go to the restaurant at the stipulated time. So we didn't have to wait. We really enjoyed our stay here. The place is clean & comfortable, good service, tea coffee makers in the room, etc. Although basic 3-star standards but well-maintained We quite enjoyed our stay here. Especially enjoyed the location, which made for serene, picturesque and peaceful walks around Norbulingka. Ask for the rooms at the back of the hotel that face the Mountain-River!

"Beautiful location and amazing services"

7.0/7
Posted 2 years ago

Our stay at Dharamshala The Sanctuary Sterling Holiday Resort was very short. We did not find any trouble locating the resort. As usual the service provided by the resort management and staff is brilliant. No compromise on Quality of Service. The restaurant was well maintained and they are very cooperative. We loved one of the dishes prepared by the Chef. He himself visited our table and thanked us for liking his preparation.
