We stayed at the hotel for two nights in February as part of a tour of India with Great Railway Journeys. A pleasant surprise when we checked in was to be upgraded to a suite. The room was fabulous, a large sitting room, bedroom and amazing bathroom. Plus a large balcony with truly amazing views, I would be very surprised if there was a better room in this wonderful hotel.
The food was very good, plenty of choice of Indian specialities. The hotel is well placed for the centre of Shimla being a short walk from the Main Street.
The staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
