Tea Bud is a huge property with wonderful location. Main bazar is 5-10 minutes walk and you are still right close to the beautiful tea gardens. While rooms are of big size and very clean, you are disappointed seeing old furniture, TV and decor. There are broken chairs too. Beds are also not comfortable and has worn out matteress. But...

This is a small hotel situated slightly away from the main town but still easily approachable. Lush green tea gardens are just opp the hotel and a visitor can walk down to enjoy beauty of nature. You get nice food starting from breakfast to dinner.

I went their with office colleagues on Oct 2, 2015. The hotel is very good. Food is tasty. Room decor is good. Overall nice stay. We went to see the T20 match at Dharamsala and returned at around 12.30 at night. Our dinner was ready at that time in the dining hall. I was pleasantly surprised.

Located in the heart of the city but maintains its serenity. The rooms are clean and spacious and is perfect for a lazy weekend. Food is pretty average and slightly pricey but that seems to be the HPTDC standard. Not a luxury stay but its worth the money.

The place is nice and clean. We got a room on the 3rd floor. The hotel has a nice small lawn and a balcony with almost every room with chairs. All rooms do have fans at least and you will not need an AC so don't go looking for one. No fridge or mini bar in rooms. Geysers yes. Rooms...

Nestled between the tea estates, amongst the deodars this is the best you can get in palampur. Rooms were big, though not properly maintained (could have been better), food was fine (do opt for local mutton dish) and service was...
