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 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 a Super Deluxe Room. To my horror, it was right next to Banquet and it's... More

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

Hi indeed this is spacious and quite place to stay. But it's very far from the Mall. Food was ok. Hotel staff was courteous. If you are having your own car and want some solace in nature, do visit here. Bath tub is not in working as scarcity of water in Shimla. There is no recreational activity for kids or... More

We did not stay in this lodge but used it facilities to organize a business dinner and cocktail. They had organised it well and ensured everyone was well tended to. The snacks (veg and lots of non-veg options) as well as the food were excellent. We had lot of fun and games and music. The staff also allowed us to... More

The hotel is situated in a perfect place in shimla and I think that it really is a heritage hotel. About the service, we were served perfectly, but the access to the restaurant from basement rooms is actually difficult, because there was a marriage going on and so the hotel got congested during the nights. the rooms were clean and...
