Hotel's location is fantastic. Just opposite to lake, Nice view of green mountain . You can enjoy sun rise and sun set view through you room's window. Shadow of sun light either in morning or evening at water of lake will be nice exp.

Boating in the lake is fun. Though Zoo did not have anything to show, the battery van ride was liked by children. the temple is quaint and interesting from Hindu mythology. Fishes and turtle in the lake interest children a lot

Sorry for the late reply. Well the best place to stay is at The Renuka(HPTDC) hotel itself. Its cheap but situated just next to lake. View from it of lake and surrounded mountain give a feeling of heaven.
