Overall a fantastic experience. Been there twice now, and each time, the hospitality, the food and ambience were incredible. Highly recommend this lodge for stay. Its the perfect place for a weekend getaway.

It's taken me a while to get down to writing this review. We actually visited Spars in August 2013 with friends and we had an absolutely lovely time during our stay there. I was a little apprehensive about bookheing a room with them as the reviews ranged from great to downright ghastly. But I'm glad I did book. Spars is... More

Despite what some of the reviews on here say, we found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful during our stay. Like others, we did upgrade the room to one with a view from the one we had booked, but there was no mis-representation of what we were getting at any point. The food was very tasty, both breakfast... More

There are definitely hotels in the area with better value for money. Bathroom was dirrty and old (even for Indian standards), hotel is quite far from the city centre and the owner is a grumpy man. Do not recommend this place!

Worst place in terms of customer service. The manager is aggressive and impolite. They lure people making online bookings showing low prices for rooms but once you reach there, they will offer yhe worst possible room so that you are bound to upgrade

Sat in lobby for 15-minutes until a disgruntled looking man and three young men suddenly appeared through the kitchen door. Asked for a double room. I was show two initially. One on the bottom...

Our first view in the morning - from the 'restaurant' - was of the sun peeping through to show us the glorious Himalayas. We felt more like we were staying in someone's home and eating in their dining room, it was really charming and cosy. Think homestay rather than 'hotel'. An easy walk to town and the staff happy to... More

This place is a heaven within the heavenly city of Simla. Tucked away from the hustle bustle of the mall road it's conveniently located close to viceregal lodge and cart road for ease movement. All rooms have a great view of Taradevi and the whole valley so be prepared to wake up to some amazing views. Must try is the... More
