Greenwoods is higher up the McLeod hill on the way towards Dharamkot, rather than in the city center. Yet the location offers guests a peaceful and charming view of the valley below, surrounded by a forest full of animals and walking paths. If you expect luxury this is not your place; but comfort and solitude are easily found. Food options are excellent, and every dish I had (about 14 meals total) were delicious and sanitary and well priced. Ask for a valley view room; but honestly there's not a bad view around. Next door is another hotel (Ghandi's Paradise) which is under construction and is a bit of an eyesore and chaotic mess; but don't let it discourage you from a stay at Greenwood's. The hike up and down the mountain each day is not too strenuous and offers amazing encounters with monkeys, mules, dogs and natives. The Bhagsunag Waterfall is just a short hike down into the valley from the hotel; and there are shops and other cafes nearby. Wi-fi is offered, and hot water was always reliable. Just remember, in McLeod Ganj flushing toilet paper is not allowed; and most places do not provide tissue. So, be prepared and bring your own if you need it. This is a great place, at an affordable rate, offering refuge and breathtaking vistas of the lower Himalayan mountains and forest.
