Though sparsely furnished as compared to other Sterling properties , the place was still comfortable. It was a quite hot when we visited and the a/c was welcome. We tried the...

The reason I quoted as unforgettable is because, I went there with my friends. Any place with friends becomes the best place to visit. Though, I must tell you what a place it is to visit. Not a place where high profile people live. You get to meet decent people, you get to eat good cheap food both veg and...

This is best place to stay in Dharamshala. Its not very far from town and has great location having mountain as well as river view. Suit road side has mountain view and opposite side has river view. We could enjoy both side as staff cooperated to shift our room other side. In house restaurant for all your need.

Contrary to the reputation of sterling Resorts, this resort is quite small. According to my rough estimate, the entire property must be constructed on a plot of land measuring about 1000 sq yards. The best point in favour of the resort is that there is a river flowing just at the back side of the hotel, and the hotel authorities...

Like all Sterling Properties, it is located slightly outside the bustle of Dharamshala town. With wonderful view of the Dhauladhar range from the road-facing rooms and the serene babble of a stream and a view of sunrise from the rooms at the back. Though it is one of the older properties of Sterling, the rooms have been upgraded with all...
