“Could have been better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Hotel was in a good location and interesting heritage building. Room was clean but missing toilet paper and then when the shower was turned on, water ran all over bathroom floor. Staff unable to do anything about it.

Wingait Inn is located at the end of the famous Mall Road. The location is execptionaly good as this is a VIP area. You'll experience absolute calmness as no private vehicles are allowed on this road. We enjoyed the walks thoroughly as the road is very clean and good. The rooms are good. The food is average.

I and my family of 4 people including my wife and 2 kids decided to head for Shimla for holidays this month. Being a Country Club member, I called them for the bookings at their Shimla hotel and got confirmed 3 days reservation. The booking was hassle free.

The Wingait is a heritage hotel which is a situated in the clam VIP area and bit away from the heart of the city. We took a taxi and reached the hotel. It is a very good property and it is being maintained well. The room that was allotted to us was spacious enough for our family but we had to borrow an extra bed. That was expected as we had reserved for the double room and we were four of us in the group. The room was clean, well lit and the bathroom was clean. The room had all the necessary amenities including LCD televisions and good furnishing.

We tasted the food in their restaurant and it was tasty. The interior was good, kept clean and the service was quick. The hotel staff helped us to book for a local Shimla sightseeing and gave us directions for shopping as well.

Over all, it was a pleasant stay at this Country Club hotel. Our family thanks the hotel staff for the very good overall service offered.
