Built nearly the same time as Jamalpur Gymkhana, also known as SGH, QRH observes year round occupancy. Its 24 king size rooms can accommodate 75 occupants.

The central block has the warden’s office, grand dining hall, with attached kitchen, accommodating 60 diners at a time, and two common washrooms. The west block has 11 rooms. Apart from this, there are also two heritage semi-circular rooms built out of aluminium sheets.
