Not that I am a frequent visitor to Shimla but from what I had heard from my friends, getting a hotel on the roadside is very very important. So the last time I planned a visit, I made sure I got one such place to stay at. We parked our car right outside the hotel and walked up to the... More

This place is about 100 m before the lift as you reach Shimla right on the main road. I had checked on the website where the booking was not available, as being full. But I just walked-in and I was told that the booking was conveniently available . As I had come here for the first time i requested that... More

We just returned from Simla after a family vacation in Himachal Pradesh. We liked The Cedar Grand Hotel for the fantastic views of nature as well as the town below. The rainbows after rains were mesmerising- and it appeared as if the red rays of the Sun has set the hills on fire. The fogs rushed to the rooms without... More

I am really sorry about giving only 3/5 to this hotel. Overall the rooms are clean, bathroom is nice and the food is good. However, we found the bed sheets to be really filthy. Most of the spots seemed old (so not a cleaning problem, but more of an age issue) but some looked recent. I asked them to be... More

We stayed at this hotel in July 2015 when Monsoon was active. The weather made up for many of the deficiencies of the property. The rooms are good bath rooms average but quite neat. The views from windows were really mesmerizing as you will observe from the pictures. The fog was heavenly. The rainbow a sight to see. The food... More

Didn't match upto our expectations from a 4* property. Services which were part of package were not provided like free cab to Mall Road, Internet access - had to ask for the password daily. Even after that we were not able to access - it was very slow and not working most of the times. Only good part was breakfast.... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Reading your review I am both shocked and surprised. It is very clearly stated on our website in the package inclusions and at the front office desk too that the shuttle service is extended between 9.00AM to 4.00PM daily. I am sure that the same must have been extended to you too. However... More

We stayed for 1 night at the cedar grand. Hotel bed had few ants roaming around, thankfully we spotted them before sleeping. We checkout out right after the breakfast which was average, there were not many choices to choose from.

Its at the begining of a local rd which is crowded and conjusted, all u can c frm the room r buildings. A bit overpriced fr the location. Food is gd. Rooms r ok ok. Nthg extra ordinary. Better to go to kufri and narkanda than shimla.
