Away from the hustle of the main city on the heritage walk this hotel stands the test of time and must have been a major part of the story of building of Shimla. It still gives you amazing views. The viceregal house and bird park are just minutes walk. It is perhaps the oldest building in Shimla. Amazing British architecture... More

Strictly speaking, It's difficult to rate a government property 'very good' but if you look a little holistic, you can't rate it any less. Surprisingly the most pleasant part is that the staff at HPTDC are so helpful and supportive that one feels so desired. Never mind them being not so polished or may be fluent in English, the bottom... More

This hotel is a state govt. rest house. Although staff is cordial, but there is an shadow of Babushahi . I strictly do not suggest this hotel for families with kids as it is far away from Mall or Ridge. You have to walk for nearly 45 minutes to reach there. Taxis take Rs 300- per ride. Food quality is... More

Good things about the hotel: rooms are huge, restaurant has good home style cooked food at a low cost, ample parking, good view from rooms. Bad things are: the bed sheets & quilts are not really clean, restaurant is... More

Lowest priced rooms are not great value for money. And higher priced are too high. Although wonderful location but of no use as most of the times government babus enjoy and common man feels cheated. There are many more options available which are value for money and take great care of you.

This is more like a government firm. They provide you the dingiest of the rooms. The receptionist an arrogant guy even scolded the room boy for showing us the nearby room which was much better than the room he offered us. Luckily he settled to give us that room. But poor food and terrible service. The room doesnt close completely.... More
