6/10 Good

The view from our room was the side of a close hill, with people working and others playing on the hill, so there was little privacy. Dogs barked throughout the night. The room was not comfortable and neither was the bathroom. Service was fine, as was the breakfast.

10/10 Exceptional

Nice hotel
Very spacious rooms, very comfortable king bed. A la carte breakfast was very good. Hotel looks pretty new. The hotel area (Dal lake) is a little isolated from the busy parts of Dharamshala and connected by a narrow windy road that is typical there, but one would need a taxi or autorickshaw to get to the more touristy parts of town. We liked it as was quiet and we were not planning a late night in the busy parts of the town.

4/10 Fair

ダル湖の側にあり、Naddi Viewpointにも歩いて行けます。設備は新しいです。しかし、朝食が8時半からと遅く、スタッフによっては英語が通じにくいです。レストランのメニューもインド料理かインディアンスチャイニーズ(無駄に辛い)で、チベット料理はありませんでした。周辺にはレストランもあまりないため、食事重視の方にはオススメ出来ません。
