The Peterhoff once served as the residence of the Viceroy of India and one should therefore expect that touch of royalty to it and its location too. A large, well maintained lawn, ball room and giant spiral stairways with large balustrades all make up for this property, now a HPTDC hotel. I stayed in The Peterhoff for the night of... More

The hotel Peterhoff in Shimla is truly a great experience of living in a heritage hotel. It is away from the hustle-bustle of the town (a blessing although slightly inconvenient because a walk to Mall is a good half an hour away). The super deluxe room is what it says ...' super deluxe'... spacious, french doors, elegantly furbished. Ours overlooked... More

Hotel Peterhoff could have been a great hotel. It has a lot going for it. Great location with stunning views of the lower Himalayas, great architecture which is a mix of British+himalayan architecture and a beautiful garden with Deodar trees. However, the service ruins it all. it's run by the government and as happens with government hotels, service has gone... More

It's not very often that one gets to stay at a hotel that has some incredible history for as little as Rs. 3500 (less than 100$), but Hotel Peterhoff provides just that. Nestled in a cozy little corner, a little over 4 KM from the man square of Shimla, the hotel has been home to 7 British viceroys, served as... More

A nice bar, fresh air, away from din & bustle yet reachable...and spectacular surroundings...schools,mountains and trees and snow of course...we never had to... More
