We went to this place during our trip to shimla in 2013 and it has been a wonderful experience being here. The rooms were spacious and clean & the food was good. I guess its amongst one of the best hotels in shimla.

Excellent place for a holiday on the hill top. Large rooms with large toilets. Food is good and service is OK. However the maintenance of the hotel is very poor including clenliness. Good for people who love quite place and nature.

Peter hoff these days is more on invitation cards for marriage receptions than on a travelogue. The place is top class. The staff is hospitable. Food is amazing. Rooms are as per your demands from basic to luxurious. Spacious banquet hall. Classy architecture. Feels like the actual Shimla.

Putting Shimla on the itinerary was a last-minute decision. I managed to book a Suite at the Peterhoff – a hotel already with mixed reviews – hoping that the suite would be the best of the lot. However, I was in for a big disappointment. The suite is large, but sparsely done. The carpets on the floor looked like they... More

Choose this property only if you want a nice relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of Shimla. Located in summerhill near Institute of Advanced Studies the hotel offers excellent views. The service is the usual HPTDC kind that means a bit slow but friendly.

We stayed in one of their suites for three nights. We had driven all the way from Kalpa to Shimla via Rampur, Narkanda and Shillaru, driving for about eleven hours because of terrible roads at the start of Kalpa side. We were given our suite room within few minutes of presenting our details and all our luggage was sent to... More

If you are coming to shimla, try to book peterhoff. It's premium HPTDC hotel, location is great and very safe. It's situated at top of shimla and all luxury hotels and VIP area is around this hotel. If you really want to live in British time shimla, this is the place. Facilities are very good but not maintained upto international... More
