This is a gem of Himachal Tourism, a government property, an exclusive manor, maintained for all guests ranging from Chief Minister to common citizens. Transport is preferable as walking to the ridge and mall is quite time consuming. The serenity and view from Peterhoff, the history and scale of the property blows your mind.

I didn't stay at this hotel, but I did drop in for beer at its bar and I thought it was great value for money. The ambiance is rich, with lots of sofas and carpeting, leading one to expect it might be expensive. But the beer was just Rs 150 for a 650 ml bottle, and they serve unlimited peanuts... More

We visited Shimla for a weekend and stayed at Peterhof. With a great location and beautiful surroundings it was an ideal break. Walking around with somewhat lesser traffic on the road( restricted and sealed roads nearby) was relaxing. The Mall, the State Assembly , the Viceregal Lodge , the All India Radio office were all within comfortable walking distance. Food... More

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
