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

I've now gone up to Sunnymead twice, and will happily return year after year. As others have mentioned, the food is simply outstanding! Madhavi and her dogs (and cat) are great company; there's wonderful birding to be done sitting on the verandah, there's endless books on offer, and you're a good 3 km short of town, so you really do...

A quick look at the Bed & Breakfast options on TripAdvisor had me fixated on the quaint and beautiful Sunnymead. After reading every single review (and then once more), I knew this was the place I wanted to stay at while in Shimla. While making my booking for the first week of September I exchanged several emails with the owner... More

We had the most fantastic stay in Sunnymead - Madhavi is a perfect host but also we think we left after our three night visit here as friends and who can ask for more than that ! The house is beautifully restored, packed with antiques and books - a real joy - with all that you need and a very... More

PROS and CONS PROs 1. BEAUTIFUL place; heritage is something to be experienced. 2. INSANE food; Madhavi could easily be a chef at a leading restaurant. Trust me; 3. FRESH food; all organic- everything grows there. She also has the best of stuff to serve from the choicest locations; 4. The place has character and history- it will talk to... More

This is a genuine home stay - Madhavi is an utterly warm host, fussing over her guests with an excellent staff. Her food is phenomenal and tailor-made if required. The home retains its old world charm and is utterly comfortable. Things to do - a great collection of books, a beautiful garden, several DVDs, badminton, and best of all three... More

Visited on on 20th June with my wife. Spent few hours and enjoyed the excellent hospitality of Madhvi. Had excellent muffins - freshly baked, sandwich and tea served in old crockery!! First, I was reluctant to go down the several steps, especially for my wife - who has joint problems, but later I would have regretted if I did not... More

Thank you Madhavi and Rita (Mummy) for your wonderful hospitality, delicious gourmet food, interesting stories and dinner conversation, and welcoming us so warmly into your beautiful, relaxing and cozy home and garden. We felt so at home and comfortable. Even though it is about a 15 minute walk away from Shimla town centre, it is worth the peace and tranquility,... More
