First thing First the location of hotel is too good, Second is ample Parking space was available (Which is difficult to find around Shimla), third is the awesome food which is available here (I still remember the Alo-Puri breakfast), Fourth is...

The only good thing about the Hotel is it's location. It is is ideally located in Summer Hills away from the hustle and bustle of City. Nothing to justify it's Heritage Tag.The parking lot is in shambles. The Hotel Lobby is non-existent. I had booked Suit. To my horror, it was right next to Banquet and it's entry was THROUGH... More

Stayed in peterhof from 26th to 30th July 2014. It was a leisure trip during monsoon. Peterhof was chosen just to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the main city. The hotel building is absolutely majestic. We stayed at cozy delux room, which was vey spacious. But the balcony doesn't have the view of the lawn in front.... More

Booked thru HPTDC, the Peterhoff is located in a very beautiful location. BIg laun in front of the hotel, is a charm. Sinic beauti is wonderful from the hotel. Service is average as it is managed by Govt. staff. Food is good but expensive. Little away from the busy roads, it is best place to relax and rejuvenate yourself in... More

It is a heritage hotel run by himachal tourism (hptdc). It is around 4-5 km away from main city and close to nature which makes it distinct from other hotels. It has its own history,Nathuram Godse’s trial took place here. I went there in a month of july when you get monsoon offer (i.e. 35% off) if book rooms online.... More

Location of this hotel is both good and bad. Good for the travelers who wants to enjoy great view of the mountains from its lush green lawns and bad for guest who wants to be in the main market quickly (distance of main market is 3 kms). Food was good and service was nice. It was not that clean as... More

Hotel has good reputation and nice place to stay. Location of hotel is good and there is beautiful view outside from rooms and lawns. No transportation is available in late hours,(even in shimla I face similar difficulty even at bus stop. )Service and food is below average.

The hotel gives a Royal feel. Rooms were very spacious. The view outside the hotel was marvellous with a very lush green lawn to walk upon which was well maintained. The staff was courteous and service was good. Though food quality was not so commendable. Viceroy Lodge aka Indian Institute of Advanced Studies is at walking distance from here. A... More
