Improve the service

Posted 28 Jun, 2017

I have visited Dalhousie it was in the month of October 2016. I booked it online. It was a family holiday trip. I am basically from Ghaziabad and settled in Hyderabad. The location of the hotel was near to the mall road and there was a small parking area. The appearance of the hotel was well maintained and there was a small garden. The front office staff was helpful and the service was on time. I have booked the deluxe room and the room was comfortable. The bed bathroom and the amenities were good. The food would be prepared in our order and we have to order in advance. The food was tasty but the service was not up to the mark. They have to improve their service. There were no activities in this hotel.

As we arrived there in hotel ARK, most uncomfortable thing was the entrance of this hotel which we got through narrow stairs approaching through main road. the staff of hotel is good but they work at their best only after questioning their service. food at hotel ARK is good but don't eat raw veg. sandwich as the bread is not of good quality.

Dalhousie is a place where a family can enjoy well than a honeymoon couple. Places in Dalhousie can be enjoyed in two days. Some places like Khajiar, Chamera lake requires a days time each with travelling in local available taxi which cost upto INR 1500/- per trip. About the Hotel Ark - The location is very good. The Hotel is located in main market place and the location is more enjoyable in day time and evening shops can be enjoyed in evening time. The main advantage of the hotel is its nearness to the market filled with restaurants, shops and some hotels (dhaba) serving good food. Boarding at Hotel where you stay will be more tastier. In the evening it is quiet enjoyable at market places with shops displayed clothes, gift articles, foot wear, winter blankets and carpets.

Ark hotel is undergoing expansion , so some construction activities spoils the ambience . But the newly built rooms are excellent value for money . The rooms on 2nd floor are having great views of the valley . Overall good experience with the service , front desk(ask for Mr. Dhiman) and rooms . Location of hotel is very near to gandhichowk . We stayed at Ark hotel for 3nights.

Lt. Col Napier, who was British the chief engineer of Punjab, is believed to be the person who first spotted this beautiful place in the Chamba Valley in 1850. It was in the year 1854 that Sir Donald McLeod of the British Empire suggested that this place be named after the famous Viceroy of India – Lord Dalhousie. (courtesy-web info.) After reading about this beautiful place Dalhousie I was eagerly waiting for my next vacation. We planned a trip to entire Himachal during last October (2009). It was an excellent experience of a beautiful/clean/cool hill station which is very much calm city. No pollution u can see/feel though there are many tourist vehicles one can view around all those hilly curve routes.

hotel is good, service is also good, try to get a front-side deluxe or super deluxe room, view is great and it is located very near to the main market and yet not in the main market.
