If you want to get away from the busy road of simla, then this can be one of your choice, I stayed for 2 nights and it was a peaceful calm stay among the green hills. The location is good, you can check the green vally around it. The location is offsite hence you must carry all your needs along... More

I have been travelling with my family every year to various places in India for last 12-13 years I have had the worst ever experience by staying here. Nothing positive can be said about the hotel, stay, food, reception etc. The location though was good, but the stay experience over shadows all. It is very bad value for money, the... More

I stayed for 2 nights recently and I enjoyed my stay. There is a beautiful small garden overlooking the valley and the location is beautiful. The rooms aren't the key highlight of the hotel, my bath was not clean and had to request cleaning. The shower didn't work still. They have billiards and TT but poorly maintained. The staff is...

I can think of nothing positive to say about this hotel. It is very bad value for money, the rooms are dirty, bathroom and towels disgusting, stains on the bedding, carpet and walls are filthy and the food is almost inedible. Worse still is the sleeping area for the drivers in a dirty barn with only mats on the floor... More

Average Hotel with good food. Internet works in lobby area. Location is good, good sight seeing possible when roaming around this location. Room was not very clean, hotel staff was cooperative and kids have some green area to play around.

We went here in April 2014. The hotel is clean and cordial in its services. Very good layout of rooms and best value for money. The most distinct difference between this and others is its cordial behavior of staff and reception. Food is good and buffet spread is quite splendid. We are just missing the peace and calm we felt... More

Dear All Tourists My title deliberately mentioned with "PUN" as you will find this place much far from Lift Shimala Mall road not only that if you have escaped from your home discipline you will find the one waiting for you like boarding school or a Gurukul, every thing is available at a specified time and you have to plan...

Staff is not co operative...they are not loyal to job. When we spoke on phone with owner - replied loudly and shows no respect to the customer. The rooms looked nothing like the pictures they present. The place was so bad that the Indian park benches would have been a better option.

The hotel is faraway from the Simla town but none the less an ideal holidaying retreat.It provides romantic scenic beauty for the dwellers. The rooms are simple spacious clean & tidy. It provides the basic amenities to the travelers. The front desk reception is warm & cordial ,the house keeping services are fair enough. Mr Krishnakant is a warm &... More
