the terrace with a view, the glass lift and it is in a quite place but not too far from the center of mcleod ganj
The food is average, ginger tea was good. Staff is polite but not trained. linen was dirty. Infrastructure and bathrooms were good.
New hotel good location”
Location views quiet
This hotel is a great location being 5 minutes walk to Dalai Lama residence and temple. Sightseeing is available by taxi booked at reception. Same to go airport. Staff are friendly but I had to ask for new towel shampoo and linen they do not automatically do it . The hotel is new and has one of those lifts that go up the outside. The view from the restaurant on the roof is great with snow capped mountains and eagles soaring. The food however is average. I walked up the hill to the local restaurants for variety. The menu is either vegetarian or chicken. The chicken is mostly bones and no meat .
I recommend to stay this hotel. It looks much better than others in the town and the staff are friendly
Terrible service, rip off”
Room size, view, heater
The hotel staff was very unwelcoming and professionally rude. They never made our rooms, never replenished supplies and amenities (such as toilet paper), charged us for bottle water, and called us a taxi that was a rip off. When we called for more amenities, it took multiple phone calls and more than an hour before we could get more toilet paper. When we asked the hotel to call a taxi to the airport for us, they charged us twice the price than the taxi we took from the airport to the hotel. The food at the hotel was terrible and there were limited options. But hither staff called every night to encourage us to eat at the hotel restaurant.
Ideal balance for solo traveler”
staff, location, comfort
Bella Heights was the ideal balance of warm hospitality, exceptional staff/attentiveness, location and price. The views of the mountains from the dining area and room decks are breathtaking! The amenities are simple and basic but lacking nothing. For this area, the hotel is better than most any and worth the reasonable price. My only request would be for some fresh fruit on the menu. The owner, Ravi Bhagnat, is so kind and gracious---his staff reflects this and for a solo female traveler, this made me feel comfortable and at home.
Probably the best in Dharamsala, may be second one”
Good location, good standard.
Hotel has different rooms. Only some have mountain view. Nevertheless they are good. In autum and winter is very cold, one can borrow heater, but this is additional fee, and to stay without heater is impossible.
Hotel has no power bake-up, so in case of power break there is no electricity.
But considering the overall level of hotels in Dharamsala, rather very low, this hotel we can definitely distinguish in +.
