When I stayed here 5 years back for the first time, the aura of a heritage property still existed. Now it is just any other hotel apart from the outside facade and pictures on every wall. The owners live in the original heritage structure, the rooms are all newly built and purposely left shabby to give an old building feel.... More

The Hotel is well appointed, not very far from Mall, however, very peaceful. Has ample parking space and open area (both these things are scarce in Shimla). The Bathroom and Food Quality/spread needs to improve.

This is one of the most amazing hotels I have ever been to. Perfectly located on Raj Bhawan Road next to Mall Road. Nice views from hotel. Amazing food (quality as well as quantity). I would definitely book Welcome Heritage Group hotels on my next visits to other part of India.

If you want to stay away from the hustle bustle of Shimla and yet close to it then this is the perfect place. This is just 15-20 mins walk from Mall Road. Located on Raj Bhawan road this hotel will give you the feeling of a old heritage palace. Rooms are just basic but overall location and ambiance is fantastic.... More

This was a SHOCK! The room was so filthy & dirty! The restroom had holes all over, stains everywhere, everything was rusted, the pillows had stains, the bath lotions/shampoos etc that hotels are to provide were all half used alreadyy..all in all this hotel was simple UNACCEPTABLE. I strongly suggest to NOT book here.
