A decent heritage Hotel at an isolated Hill top. Dis-Advantage : a) Distant from Mall Road, and no communication, if own vehicle is not available. b) The entrance being through VIP area and near to Vidhan Sabha, are mostly blocked in daytime and during VIP movements, and when Assembly is in session. The toilet would have been cleaner, though modern... More

A visit to this hotel reminds you of the famous adage "Govt has not business to be in business". Let me tell you the plus point first. This is a heritage building, of colonial era. Beautiful. Rooms are huge and bathrooms are pretty big. We were given room heater which worked well and there was running hot water throughout. Having... 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

I went to Peterhoff with My family in Aug. I must say the stay was very comfortable and relaxing. 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...
