The main pleasure of the stay for us was meeting and chatting with the owners, Brigadier Sandhu and his lovely, gracious wife. We had a delicious homestyle dinner with them one night and had our two breakfasts with them,...

We loved this place in Dharamsala, we loved the folks running it, we loved the food, and the joy with which we were fed. We were travelling with two kids under five and could get home made food for our toddler. We had a great time at the home-stay and loved the graciousness of Mr and Mrs Singh.

We were there during Diwali, a bit in the dilemma of whether we should have spend the time back in Delhi with our family and friends. However, Brig. Sandhu and Mrs. Sandhu made us feel unexpectedly comfortable. Fantastic arrangement, great view, lovely village walk, amazing garden! You can't ask for more. We actually became part of the family.
