“Good place to relax and unwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

A beautiful place to stay in Shimla. Quaint cottage with mist-draped beautiful garden and best view of queen of hills are hallmarks of Marley Villa. For years the cool and picturesque town of Shimla was the summer retreat of the British and this property still retains the charm of a colonial past. Here, every room offers mesmerizing views. You can enjoy the mist rolling down in the warmth of luxuriously furnished rooms. Me and my husband had a great time in the property, it is difficult to find such a place in middle of the crowded city. There is so much peace all around that you wonder if you are in a city or far away at a secluded place. The food again is impeccable fresh and tasty. Also the rates are competitive, so wouldn't burn hole in your pocket. But the best part of the property is the view that you get from here, we haven't forgotten it even after 3 months. Thank you Marley Villa for giving me such a great experience. I will be planning a next trip soon in winters, to see the snow capped mountains from my beautiful room.

Marley Villa is by far, the best accommodation in Shimla with a backing of excellent services and a fantabulous view of mother nature. I was there in August, 2011 and recently planned a vacation for my parents too at the same place. Mr. Jai and his helpers at the Villa are amazing hosts and they make sure that they flatter and impress the guests with the best of everything. This wonderful Cottage is situated at a very convenient location from where the mall road, Jaaku Temple and rest attractions of the hill station are at a walking distance; and is at the same time, also very peacefully away from the chaos and crowd of the Hill Station. Thereby, giving all facilities in one package. All in all a great experience and a must visit destination.

It was a wonderful experience at Marley Villa which is situated in the lap of nature, the view is wonderful from the beautiful garden. one can enjoy with everybody friends, family. We stayed here for 4 nights, the food was excellent, and it was of our choice, we never missed home cooked food.
The best part was the hospitality and specially the care taker lady Kala Aunty. the rooms were small but with all the facilities, which one won't mind after seeing the property and surely would love to stay!!! Simply home away from home.
in our 4 nights stay we never had any inconvenience. children enjoyed in the garden playing games and didn't wanted to go to mall road.
We would surely love to visit Marley Villa again. special thanks to the owner Mr. Jai Lal for all his
support for making our trip wonderful and memorable.
we would surely advice everyone to visit marley villa whenever they go to shimla.
Value for Money!!!!!!
best of luck

I stayed here from 22nd april for two nights. This property has real homely feel in all aspects.
I had lots of concerns before booking online., but one can blindly really on owner of property Mr. Jai Lal & his team( Raju, kala). Quality of food, cleanliness and other living aspects are up to the mark.
This property is placed around 3.5 km away from mal road, but one who need to enjoy real bliss of shimla and love to enjoy oneness, two nights will not enough. A perfect destination.

The road leads to this place is steep scary and tricky to park the vehicle inside however once we were there, everything being taken care by the care taker lady of the house Kala. She makes sure that nothing being left out. The place is clean and the food served by them is excellent. We felt like home.

I booked this place by just going through the pics and distance from Mall Road.
This place has a lovely view not directly from the room but from the open area. One can spend good time sitting in open area and do nothing.
The best thing about this place was the service... I am astounded with the service given to us by the care taker Ram Krishan.

I stayed with my wife, son, mother and sister. My son is below 2 and he has specific needs. Ram Krishan took care all of those…
Mall road is 20 to 25 minutes walk-in from this place but I suggest to take the vehicle and park the same in Lift parking. Old age people may not be comfortable to walk on hill roads.
Young people can walk also and can enjoy.

First day dinner we had at Mall road which was not good at all. Next day we had breakfast and dinner at villa only..
Ram Krishan again gave us the feeling of being at Home. Food he cooked was amazing.

I cherish the moments spent there.

Must go to this place and if you are more than 3-4 people you will definitely enjoy a lot.
