It is difficult to find the location unless you have your own transport. We travelled with friends in month of November and since it was far from city center was not easy to reach the plac Rooms were neat and clean, food was OK. Staffs were not friendly.

Rooms were nice and clean, parking was gud enough for big vehicles also, need experience driver to climb up to hotel. You get free Wi-Fi in the rooms. The best thing is you do not have to... More

The booking guy, Sandeep, is an extremely rude man. He is incompetent and is not all a person who should be hired for Hospitality. Utter shame that Fairmount has hired such a rude staff which includes the staff in the hotel itself. There is no respect or co operation with the consumer. We booked the hotel through www.bookings.com and had... More

Good view from corner room having two windows. Heater which is provided has only one rod working which fails to heat up the entire room. This is true for all rooms. For one of the rooms, we were provided a heater with two working rods which was sourced from the restaurant but for the other, it wasn't done. Morning buffet... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is far from Mall Road. Though they provide complimentary transfers to and fro Mall road but that only once during your entire stay. The view from the rooms was beautiful. Do not expect more. Rooms have very faded furniture but neat and clean. There was no tea/coffee maker also in the room.... More

For the first time I did not get a good idea about this hotel from TripAdvisor. Most reviews suggested close to 4 for this where as the hotel does not even deserve 0.5. I cant remember even one area where the hotel was good. Starting from the front desk to the rooms the service the facilities and hospitality. Everything sucked. ... More

Staff is friendly and food was good but it's very far from the main city center. When we checked in the linen were not clean and we had had to ask them to change it. Staff was friendly. I think we were the only other guests they had so they served breakfast and dinner at our rooms. The service was... More

We planned a trip to Shimla well in advance and booked this hotel after consulting friends and family. Star rating heard was a 3 star, but we were more than pleasantly surprised when we checked in. A very nice property, extremely courteous staff and the food was absolutely delicious. Parking space available is not so much but considering the environment... More
