Services were average

Posted 28 Dec, 2016

Services were average here in this hotel. On time checking services were provided. Room was neat and clean. Needed facilities were provided. I did not take part in the WiFi activities. For holiday vacations I had visited this hotel. This hotel can be recommendable for others.

Rooms were clean and service provided was good

Posted 27 Oct, 2015

If you want to enjoy nature at it's best then this is the place to go. Early morning walk is enjoyable and you can see rare species of birds. Located on a hill top surrounded by pine trees. Lot of trekking routes are there for activity lovers. Food was up to the mark. Rooms were clean and service provided was also good. You must visit this place if you want to experience Switzerland in India.

The stay is value for money

Posted 5 Aug, 2015

The rest house boasts of the best possible locations that is available around Kalatop. Being a government guest house getting the reservation done is a little bit tricky and needs constant follow up but once done this place is a revelation and you will enjoy the stay. Being a govt property the rates are pretty low ( as low as 200 rs if you are a govt servant). On the flip side don't expect the moon, the services are pretty basic. Overall a value for money stay.

Tough to get booking but nice place to stay

Posted 31 Jul, 2015

We had gone to Dalhousie primarily for experiencing snow. The Forest rest house is perfectly located. However getting the booking is not an easy task. The priority is for government officers though its open to civilians as well. The booking numbers are available in the HP forest website. Just ensure that the booking is confirmed and the watchman/chowkidar is informed else when you land up you will be in for a surprise (not pleasant). The facilities are not to be compared to a hotel as it is a government guest house. But cheap rates are what you get in return.
