I was on a road trip and i'm traveler who likes to stay in homestays n hostels as i like to meet people . I believe great conversations take place when we meet new people . It totally surpassed my expectations .
So i like places which are peaceful n away from noise n all the chaos of a city . This place is perfect . It is a 10 minute walk from mcleodganj mainsquare n on the road to dharmkot . Its away from all the chaos of town and very peaceful . You could simply enjoy your morning tea in peace with a amazing view of the mountains from the in house cafe . The walk to mcleodganj main square( centre of town ) is very photogenic n thus keep your cameras ready :p .
Since its a homestay so please dont expect it to be a normal hotel . It is a family run and sahil the amazing guy handles the guest part . He was so caring about his guests that i noticed that he doesnt sleep unless his guests are back home and especially concerned regarding safety of women . The food was very well served and the rooms were very clean .this time i was in family room but next time i want to stay in the hut they have on the top floor . That room gives a breathtaking view . So if you get that room consider yourself lucky as the valley view is to die for .
I prefer travelling like a local n meeting new people thus homestays gives you that experience were i made some amazing friends from across the globe . I loved the place so much that i stayed an extra night out there . Sahil n family has perfected the art to give experience of a homestay and services of a hotel . Also i missed out on the special roasted chicken that mrs. Sarin makes , make sure you dont miss it :( . Simply amazing . Thank you sahil n family

'McLeodganj Homestay' is located at a convenient spot; at a short distance from the Main Square and just before the TIPA. With cozy comfortable rooms, breath-taking valley view, lip-smacking food and warm friendly service this is like a home away from home. Nothing extravagant but a wonderful basic comfortable and relaxing stay is what you can expect at The Flourishing Flora.
Room Tip: The valley-facing room on the first floor is The Best Room!

This review is very late, but I just had to write this because my stay at McLeodganj Homestay was just so fabulous. I stayed here for two nights and the hosts Nisha Aunty and her son Saahil were ever so helpful. Right from booking the homestay, everything went so smoothly that I didn't have anything to worry during my trip. The Saris have a beautiful house with a small cafe and a wonderful small nursery. The house looks beautiful when lit up at night.
The room was decent and clean. There was a small water issue one day but they were prompt to solve it. I fell ill on the second day and they were very helpful at that time. A wonderful place to stay while in McLeodganj (though it is little walk uphill from the main town).

Mcleodganj home stay is been run by sarin family .The property is only 800 meters from mcleodganj it self. Surrounded by beautiful pine trees the home stay is really very beautiful place to spend your weekend away from all the hustle and mad-max of mcleodganj . I highly recommend the place for nature and peace lovers.Food served during stay on order reminds home food.The hospitality provided by owner is excellent.
