Hotel Doegar is located on the ridge in Shimla. It is in a great location with great views. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are nice, a little on the small side but our room had a nice balcony overlooking the mountains and town. The room does not have a great deal of space but we really... More

Stayed here for two nights. Room was large, lovely quaint design with wood panelling, and we had a beautiful view of Shimla. Good TV channels and wifi facilities, comfortable bed. There is no heating, and with the temperature dropping to just a few degrees we had to use extra duvets, which were kept in a cupboard in our room. Unfortunately... More

We arrived out of season and got a hefty discount. The room was absolutely stunning, wonderful wood and tasteful decorations. The bathroom was pleasant and gave us hot showers. The view was breathtaking as well. Once we were in the hotel the location was excellent but it is quite difficult to reach initially with luggage as taxis cannot drive up... More

I have stayed at the Doegar during three previous trips to Shimla. The views from the balconies and terraces and the rooms, filled with glorious Shimla sunlight, are beautiful and I have always made a point of returning here, in spite of the inflation-busting speed at which room tariffs have risen over the past six years. I consider myself a... More
