We spend two nights at Madhavi's beautiful house in Shimla and we absolutely loved our stay. Madhavi and her fabulous cook Mandhu took great care of us, no request was too much and our comfort was of utmost importance. Even though it was still cold outside in early March the house was cozy and next to the fireplace it was... More

My second time here; this time just with my daughter. As lovely as ever. Glad its not as known as it should be hehe. I think a bond with this place has been formed. Yes. I do blame the owner though for putting on weight. You could visit here just for the food especially the continental fare- insanely good and... More

There are not enough superlatives to describe a stay with Madhavi at Sunnymead. Instantly made to feel welcome it was wonderful to meet Madhavi and her other guests. Her home is beautiful, full of character and exquisitely furnished and decorated with taste - even down to the lovely vases of flowers. Sitting in the lounge infront of a crackling log... More

People make homes. And Sunnymead is blessed to have the most wonderful, lively people inhabiting it. Madhavi is a wonderful host - nothing is too much for her and her personal touch is evident in every aspect of the stay - right from the delicious food that she serves (more on this later) to the soaps in the bathroom. She... More

The most hospitable, cozy and beautiful place ever made!!! A must visit. If you don't know the hospitality of sunnymead you don't know real hospitality. The meals, the room, the people and of course the friendly 3 dogs were awesome......... The place has been modernised and a lot of effort has been put..... A lot of books.... Great furniture.... Near... More

Remember the best meal you would have ever had, remember the time when you were served food with most warmth, multiply the emotion that you would have felt then by at least 3 times. That's your every meal at Sunnymead. So you would have got the drift by now. Excellent food blended with warmth of hospitality. The rooms are beautiful,... More

This is the kind of stay that will spoil you for any other kind. You're in somebody's beautifully appointed home. There are big happy dogs and a cat to cuddle. Books to wallow in. A lovely cottage garden with wild flowers as well. The food is comforting, delicious and beautifully presented in heirloom crockery. Like the osteria in Italy, the... More

We had an outrageously good stay at Madhavi's house in February 2014. This is a really tastefully and carefully restored family home, built by her great grandfather, full of antique furniture, hangings and carpets. It sits on the steep slope below Cart Road in its lovely garden - Moti Lal has been looking after it for 30 years or more.... More

Madhavi and Radhika were the most wonderful hosts, welcoming us with a smile in their beautiful home. A cosy, wooden house, aesthetically done, it instantly made us feel at home. A beautiful garden is perfect to laze in the sun and food is quite incredible - especially the Lamb :) In short, I fell in love with the place and... More

Madhavi was an excellent hostess and Sunnymead is a beautiful property. I would highly recommend staying here. The house has so much character and is beautifully furnished and decorated. Our room had a very comfortable four poster bed and a fire burning in the fireplace. Chatting to Madhavi and her mum, Rita, before dinner was interesting and entertaining. The dinner... More
