“Good location with wonderfull views, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We got such a warm welcome and personal attention was given by the owner of the hotel Mr. Arun (MD) himself. It was endearing and feel at home feeling with such a simple, genuine and humble person, he will always hold special place in our hearts. We were there to celebrate our first Wedding Anniversary and chose the honeymoon package. We got the best package and decor never before. We completely rejuvenated and lived our wedding wows again with surprise anniversary cake and room decoration.

Hotel is made in an excellent way from where you get a full scenic view and located at the most prominent and safe place at Shimla away from the crowded city. And snowfall on January 17th, 2014 was like the icing on the cake which made our holiday memorable for life time....

We would like to recommend to all the newly weds...with this holiday package enjoy Shimla never before.

We would prefer to stay there again..

The hotel is superbly located far away from the madding crowd with wonderful views of the mountains. The food was great. Room is spacious and clean and the staff was very responsive to all our needs. We will definitely stay in this hotel again if we happen to be back in Shimla.

if u r tired of city huzz buzz then this place is ur heaven. situated away frm mall road n shimla city amidst forests this hotel offers u a feel of total relaxation n comfort u need for a break frm ur hectic schedule back home. For me this was like my second home. Though its away frm mall road but i was provided free drop n pick once a day, well in my case i preferred sometimes to walk 3 kms. to mall n enjoy the forest in between. Rooms r very comfortable clean and well provided with all the things u need for a stay. The room interior was really good and very cozy. The view frm my room was of the small terrace and the forest n it was beautiful. The room service was really quick. We ordered for hot drinking water bottles 3 times a day but they were always ready to help us more. The hotel has three cars at service meant for the tours around shimla and pick up n drop to mall. So u r away frm the noise and still very near to the mall road.

Finally about the staff, the staff of the hotel is excellent. From the room service guys ( ishu, naresh) the driver ( nishu) to the GM (Mr. Pradeep ) they were all very good. But the best staff was the girl at reception ( Ms. Isha Verma ). She is the most courteous, polite and helpful receptionist i have come across. Always smiling, she guided me bout almost everything. Frm how to go to ISBT to get bus for chandigarh or which way to go for good tea in sanjhauli i would ask her many questions but she would always answer them very politely n genuinely. She would everyday ask me bout how was my day. She was the best of all.

I would surely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting shimla next time.

Room Tip: I stayed in room no. 201 which overlooks the small terrace and pine tree forests. It was wonderful s...

Inspired by reviews I choose to book rooms at this hotel. The location is great. The view from the room was superb. The location at the hyphen connecting Shimla and Chota Shimla is neither near the mall nor near any of the important view points.
But, when it comes to the ground realities, 1)as one approach the city hoarding announced different distances of hotel, which never matched, 2)as one reach the hotel a steep gradient is to climbed toreach the hotel gate, 3)thereafter one is to climb steep flight of stairs to reach the reception, to meet a not very friendly staff manning it, and an equally untrained staff to take care of the guests. The rooms were not worth the rate, the food was below average. It was always a problem to get to the hotel after visiting any of points in or around the city.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel if you have any plans to go around, the view faceing rooms are good.
