Let me first start with the positive thing about this Hotel as I have pretty less to add here It's the location. This was the only good thing that we experienced here. It's located very near to Khajjiar grounds- however it's not facing the Khajjiar grounds. Though it gives a fantastic view of the Valley & Snow Capped Himalayas including the Mount Kinner Kailash. Those who prefer Hotels in a market area should look out for those in Dalhousie But except for location, all other things that we experienced were on a downside. They offer three type of rooms Luxury Suite, Standard Deluxe & Deluxe(has common balcony) Ambience:- We stayed in so called Luxury Suite which had a huge independent gallery. The bathrooms were not cleaned, food left overs, chewing gums and dead insects were found on the floors soon as we checked in. Spent around 30 minutes after Check-in to get the room cleaned again and get the towels and dirty doormats replaced. Surprisingly the Luxury Suite has no carpet on floors while the other rooms do have it. Tin roofs were lying in the gallery as if the gallery was used to dump extra things Service:- Again not so good. Though all the above issues were taken care promptly we were left with below satisfactory feeling due to couple of issues. We truly respect the hot water policy that the hotel follows in using Solar panels for water heating and providing it at limited timings. But, there is no respite in emergency requirements. We were travelling with a 1 year Infant for whom we requested at-least a warm water bucket from some electric heater or jug of hot water from Kitchen which was rudely turned down. Also, during check-out we requested atleast one hot water bucket as we were needed to leave early morning at 6 but that was also not entertained. In many reviews people have complained about the same, for which the Manager has made a point to reply that they provide Hot water buckets for emergency cases. Will wait for what he writes here Food:- Since this Hotel is in remote, you have no options but to reply on the Hotel kitchen. My suggestion don't go for any Breakfast or lunch or dinner package, just take the room. This will give you a freedom to place order in a la chart. The buffet is highly limited, bread butter, omelette, Paratha in B'fast, while rice, dal, two veggies, and Rotis in dinner. We had two Dinners, the only change in menu was type of Dale rest of menu was same. I hope it was not the same stuff that I ate on first day I am planning for next visit to Dalhousie for trekking, but surely no stay in this hotel for me.
Visited Khajjiar for the first time, a good destination full of natural beauty. The plan was made all of sudden after some research on the internet. Then we started looking for some hotel accommodation. Found couple of hotels but Shining Star Resort was the only place which was available on the required dates. We did some research on the hotel location, the approach and the photographs of the surroundings and rooms We called up the hotel and spoke to Mr. Amit for booking. He was very cooperative and helpful. Payment was made online and booking was confirmed. We reached Khajjiar on 14th June 2015 after staying one night in Dalhousie. The hotel was almost 300 - 400 meters away from main Khajjiar Ground and thank god it was away as the surrounding of that ground was full of traffic and noise from the vehicles visiting Khajjiar and going back The approach road to the hotel was excellent as per me, a small road surrounded by big Deodar trees full of natural beauty. The hotel was good and was almost meeting our expectation. Rooms were decent, good in size and interiors. Best part is all rooms have balcony and excellent view from it. We stayed in the luxury room and it was good. WiFi was available on request. The dining room was big. Food I would say was okay, although it is very subjective The staff were supportive and was available as and when required. Overall, my experience with this hotel was good My advice to all the travelers visiting Khajjiar :. 1. Do carry enough money for spending in Khajjiar as there is no "ATM" available and you may also not be able to use your credit cards . 2. My suggestion : Do not have food in any restaurant / eating joints on that Khajjiar Ground as it is not hygienic and the surrounding stinks . 3. You should be a good negotiator . 4. Do go for paragliding as it was one of the best experience we got . 5. Do visit apple orchards which are further gown from this hotel.

During the month of December2016, I visited Khajjiar and stayed in Shining Star Resort. It was a holiday trip with family members. Destination was very good. I liked the natural beauty and atmosphere. Hotel location was good. Front office was very good, as their attitude was good. Room was booked online. Room was poor, as the cleanliness was zero and the washrooms were dirty and the furniture in the room was not maintained well. Service was very good. Food was very good. WiFi facility was avaiable. I would like to suggest the hotel management to maintain the rooms and washrooms neatly. Overall experience was good, but only draw back of this hotel was maintenance of rooms and washrooms.
When I visited Khajjiar then I stayed in this hotel. Location of the hotel was very nice and it was situated near about half km far from the bus stand and near to shopping mall. I faced no difficulty to find this hotel. Inner and outer look of the hotel was good. Room was excellent but in washroom water was leakage. Outside view was available from the room window. Staff behavior was fine. Services were good. Check-in and check-out facility was not delayed. Quality of the food was not good. They did not provide any activity in the hotel. Parking facility was available there. I had gone there with my family. Khajjiar as a tourist place is nice.
