Hotel is poorly kept. dirty and rates are too hopeful. please avoid at all costs. don't go here few other good options. I wouldn't stay here again this hotel needs some serious management. Hotel combermere next door is a better bet. The place has good location but sad that hotel owner doesn't renovate the place.

Hotel Willow Banks was chosen on net booking for family weekend stay.Hotel is very nicely located and is excellent place to relax.Has in-house facilities to pamper its guests. Only problem is parking as hotel has no personal parking and vehicle has to be parked in cart road parking. Overall good experience.

Location is the usp. Park at high court parking just below it. Food is good but costly. Menu as per timelines so have to order accordingly. Scope of improvement here. How many good hotels would restrict you from ordering things off their menu if it is outside the time provided. Staff helpful. Book in advance in case of season or... More

It had clean room and was very spacious. Running hot water was provided but shower was disappointment. Nice dining hall and very good food. Friendly staff. Only short walk to The Mall and the Ridge. It was good value for money and I will definitely recommend,

We stayed there during the long weekend around 15th August. It seemed as if the whole of North India had converged to Simla. The hotel was also jam packed and hence I attribute some of our service experiences to excess rush. Location - As mentioned by reviewers before, the location is hotel's biggest plus. Bang on mall road though on... More

We stayed here in May . The hotel is very ideally located at the very beginning of one end of The Mall . Shopping is virtually a stone's throw away. However, the hotel or the web portals do not tell you, that no vehicle can reach the hotel. One has to hire a porter and climb about 100 steps or,... More
