Booked the Maharani Suite online for the Good friday extended weekend. The drive to Chail was extremely enchanting & very picturesque. Enjoyed it thoroughly & felt refreshed upon reaching the Hotel. Exterior: The Palace is an extremely wooded property & the drive way leading to the palace is extremely charming & pretty. The Palace building though is a bit of... More

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times. Once when I was in Class 1oth when my uncle had booked the whole hotel for a marriage celebration. Then it was really enjoyable since we all were family members. Then I stayed here in Queens Room on my Honey Moon for 2 nights, It was a very comfortable stay. Then I... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice (as my first trip was very short and I had to come back). The second stay was longer. I had to book the room in advance as there are no 'on spot' booking with the Palace. The rooms are very good and well spaced. There are log huts, cottages and double rooms available.... More

Hotel Chail Palace is a HPTDC heritage property. The Chail Palace is converted into a hotel. Located near Shimla but away from the hustle-bustle of Shimla. Beautiful place with varying options to stay - from independent self-contained chalets to standard hotel rooms made more luxurious. Limited food options. Has huge estate to go walking, nicely landscaped and well maintained garden.... More

I along with my husband were staying there for 3 nights and it was an amazing experience. The services and interior of the hotel are just amazing and very much above expectation. Its an ideal place for relaxing over the weekend.

I was at the Chail palace for lunch in June of 2011, the palace is fine but it doesn't have much to boast about in the decoritives from it's era. There is an old piano(toursits are always monkeying with it) in the lobby and a few priceless paintings, most of the furniture is made of cane and is probabally authentic.... More

We booked two nights in the cottages go this hotel because someone advised us this location over Shimla. He was right on the location it's just fabulous in the middle of a quite forest. From outside the huts look pretty and the guy from housekeeping very friendly. But once we saw the room our smile was not so big anymore.... More
