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

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
