Very very pleased with the stay here. Rooms and washrooms are very clean. Staff is very nice and well mannered. Best part is the food..... Try the restaurant and cafe for sure! Another great advantage is the easy accessibility to the mall road by hotel lift, saves a lot of time and effort!! Also, we were pleasantly surprised with the... More

Stayed here for two nights & was disappointed with the service from the reception. Had to ask over & over for the wifi password. Rooms wer freezing cold & asked for an extra heater & they said they don't have it. In the end had to speak to the manager & he sorted it out. There is no free parking.... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights on the Himachal tour and was impressed with the overall service and the cleanliness maintained in the place. The double rooms were quite comfy with good heating during winter and the quality of sleep was amazing.The only flip is the breakfast menu and food availability and the wifi service which was quite patchy.

Pros Rooms are nice, with great viewpoints. Clean bathroom and bed. Free lift access to the Mall Road. Cons Wifi - I've never come across a hotel that requires you to work so hard to get snails pace internet. Accessibility is an issue, especially for bringing in luggage as you have to climb up a flight of stairs before getting... More

Combermere is a clean hotel. Beds were clean and comfortable. However, the thermostat in the room was broken, so was not able to control the heat. I had to just turn off the heat to avoid getting roasted. Fortunately, it wasn't too cold else would have been forced to wake up a few times to turn the heat on and... More

A great hotel located on the Shimla slopes with superb views! Pretty much all of the rooms have a balcony that looks out onto Shimla and the valleys below, and provides spectacular views of the mountains. Another thing I loved about this hotel were the showers - so NICE and WARM - very refreshing after a long and hard day... More
