Good place to spend a weekend in the calmness, sit back relax in the open area, eat in the cafe. Nothing much to do in and around the hotel, just to rejuvenate you can visit this place. And of course if you drive till here, then you can go to little far places as well. 6 hours flat drive from... More

I tell you what. I am done with crowded places. I am a writer and I need peace when I take a trip. I love being 'in the lap of nature' and want to travel to places which are away from the crowd, in this case, Shimla. This is a Himachal Tourism hotel. The hotel is beautiful, located on the... More

Close to the main road to Shimla, one has to take a little diversion to get to this place. Well worth it. Marvelous location, great view and lovely garden with beautiful flowers. Great place to take pictures. The restaurant offers good food and reasonably good service. Certainly worth taking the minor detour to eat at this place and spend some... More

Nice place to spend your weekend if you live in Delhi. The property is really good. As of now going renovations (november 2014) but open. The staff are nice. The open area is good for kids to play and for entire family to sit and relax and see small birds hopping from one tree to another.

The place has a very good location. Lovely garden full of flowers in season, not well kept otherwise. Rooms are spacious but not well maintained. Restaurant is very good. Must try dishes made with mushrooms, Indian or continental. Also offers local Himachali fare. My personal favorite is mushrooms on toast.
