Peterhof located in one the most open area in Shimla, No congestion of any sort human or vehicles .Rooms are well appointed , but the upkeep of the building is poor. Bathrooms are smelly ,appears they are using recycled water for WC'S.The staff is very good n responsive,... More

I am 55 and have been to Shimla many a times since my early childhood but I never visited such a beautiful property and also never imagined that such a huge space as a heritage hotel is available for stay by general public in the heart of Shimla where one one move around leisurely and enjoy each area of the...

Very Ol' World. Of historic significance. Has the court-room that saw the Ghodse trial. Expansive lawns. Reached by traversing a winding, hill road. At the end of a valley. Yet Contemporary. With modern amenities. Tranquil. Stately Charm. One can laze around, doing nothing (perfectly acceptable behaviour, in a hill-station like Shimla) :) The older staff has a lot of tales... More

I stayed here for a day in Aug 2014 in basic rooms. Rooms were not in great condition but bigger and clean. As this is a very old hotel but with beauty. Some big points about this: 1) Big hotel with large rooms as compare to Shimla hotels. 2) Food is very good. You will feel it worth. 3) Peaceful... More

As we walked out of shimla train station we realized the mistake of not ordering a pick up with the hotel (they do not have a complimentary pick up facitily!) Taxi drivers were asking for an exorbitant amount just for a couple of Kilometers..well they explained that they will have to take a very long detour to reach the hotel... More

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
