The USP of the hotel is the location in the middle of the Mall road.
But then, many, many hotels are located right on the Mall road too! Hotel Shiva
Hotel Himalayan Club
Hotel Drive Inn
Hotel Classic Heights
Valley View Hotel
Hotel Kulri Residency
Hotel Kasmanda Palace
Hotel Padmini Niwas
Hotel Honeymoon Inn
A long list!
I compiled this list so it might be of use, as most people prefer to stay on or near the Mall road.
The Garhwal Terrace is not worth it.
The people at the reception are indifferent and unhelpful.
When they make online bookings, they do not deduct the applicable taxes.
Over-priced, poorly staffed.
It is not possible to even place a call to their own hotel in Dhanaulty.
The room was located in the basement on the bottom floor. Like a dungeon. It was humid and damp.
The breakfast was unappetising.
The hotel is not well maintained. Like most government-owned places, service is not up to the mark.
This time we really regretted staying with HPTDC and GMVN. I still haven't decided which is worse.
So I'll give top honors of the worst government hotel to Assam Tourism's hotel at the gates of Guwahati railway station.
Musoorie ,Shimla and Nainital are not a place anymore to go for some tranquil hill stay,not at all.
Infact out of these ,Nainital according to me is in a better position mainly because of a huge water body in middle which is surrounded by plain walkable path unlike Shimla and Mussorie ,which may look as if it being a little less crowded.
Other wise all three are same ,catering to the whims of wild crowd who just wants to reach a place called hill station ,having a Karol bagh ambiance.
