The hotel also serves as a view-point for people taking the HPTDC-conducted sightseeing tour from Shimla.There are benches to sit in the garden and admire the view of the Fagu valley. Toilets are clean.

Away from the crowd this is a nice place. Good views from the hotel. We stayed in the super delux rooms bloody spacious. Howver the room carpets needs to be dry cleaned etc. Food is average. But overall not bad at all. Like all govt run places it lacks that finishin touch.

carpets in the rooms were dirty and stinking.The management seems to be least bothered about the maintainance of the excellant property.None of the staff had any interest in showing rooms.When I asked for better room,I was suggested to look at another hotel nearby.

Got a chance to stay in this hotel away from hustle of Shimla crowd, and loved every bit of it. The rooms are spacious and clean. Hotel itself is very well maintained. The best part - the staff is very courteous and helping. I didn't go there with many expectations, but was overjoyed at the hospitality. Must recommended. Fagu has... More

Stayed at this hotel almost 5-6 time now. Its a good escape for people who are looking for peace. HPTDC property so cannot expect much in terms of service or luxury. But its value for money specially during winters. Tip - There is a small trail to the top of the hill which starts from the hotel gate leading to... More

Make sure you keep your eyes open once you cross Kufri to reach this property. The hotel is just like any other HPTDC properties which... More

Im not a big fan of the commercial hill stations so always go for one of the smaller towns around it. That way, I can chill in a nice quiet place and drive down to those 'Mall Roads' if there is a craving for touristy stuff. Fagu fits the bill perfectly and Apple Blossom is the only HPTDC property in... More

Property has a vast space on its back side where you can walk, play... More
