We stayed at Himachal tourism guest house i.e. the Chail Palace and believe me its one of the most beautiful government properties to stay in.The bookings were done online on the their official website.I have fairly had good experiences using government owned guest houses while travelling.They are well maintained and have the best scenic spot of the place.
== Visit the Royal Palace hotel ==
The royal summer retreat of the maharaja was later given to Himachal Tourism, who converted it into a luxury hotel giving ordinary people like us a chance to live, even if for a day, as the kings did!
After that we decided to head to the most popular place Chail is known for, the Chail Palace. It was built in 1891 and belonged to the Maharaja of Patiala, but now operates as a heritage 5-star hotel. It is beautiful, royal building with antique interiors, looking at which reminds one of the historic era when it was built. It also has a restaurant where we had lunch, a huge lawn with a small cafe serving drinks and snacks for the perfect evening outdoors.
