I came here in April of 2009 with friends. If you are on a budget Dalziel works out extremely well. The rooms are not exceptional but given that this is a prime area of Shimla and right on the edge of the Mall Road, you don't miss out too much by that. You get what you pay for and what... More

If there is no other option then only any one should stay here.room service and house keeping is below standard.room is nice and gives better view of mall road. The location of this hotel is very good. It is situated next to sbi main branch and near ag office. Restaurent is there in hotel but it works for limited hours.

Sometimes we have guests who always attempt to find something wrong and seek a discount..The TV did not work since the guest had switched off the bedside switch..Housekeeping changed the remote/batteries..We have very clean linen and change the same every season..We regret that you found the furniture old but you chose to stay in the substantially cheaper old unrenovated rooms..We...

We booked but after seeing 3 rooms decided not to stay. To be fair, most of the other places we looked at were also scabby but at least represented that in the price especially Classic next door. We raised our budget to stay elsewhere.
