“3.5 Rating from me”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

A very beautifully located hotel, great value for money, but need to work slightly on the finishing and cleanliness. Very courteous staff, and got a free upgrade also. We had booked two rooms and asked for rooms with a view of the valley, but cause they could give us only one room with a view, they upgraded the other to a super deluxe view. Really appreciated that gesture. But the walls in the 2nd room were a little soggy and the floors and bathroom wasnt 100% cleaned.

If the hotel pays attention to these minute details, it can really become one of the best hotels in Shimla.

In my many visits to Shimla, this quant little property has turned out to be a hidden Gem. It offers a spectacular view, which is a visual treat every time you wake up to it. The rooms are huge, with spacious bathrooms. The hotel staff is very courteous and strives towards making your stay an absolutely comfortable experience.The food here is delicious with the highlight of the menu for me being "Rajma Raseela" as they call it. Overall the hotel lives upto it's reputation of being a peaceful paradise for it's guests.

Distance from the main town to the hotel was very far. The rooms are located in the fourth floor without a lift & the staircase is open to sky. It snowed during our stay at the hotel, then think of climbing.

Excellent location with a good view of the valley. Stayed at the Super Deluxe Room; Huge room which can comfortably accommodate a family of four; big bathroom with separate shower cubical. Although stayed for a very short while, the Breakfast menu was sumptuous and the food delicious. Compared to the other "hyped" hotels in Shimla, Fairmount offers a very comfortable stay!

Room Tip: Go for the rooms with the valley view!

Let me put it very simply !!

What's well !!

1. One of the best locations in Shimla. Just behind Jakhu Temple. Away from the maddening crowd of Shimla.
2. Great view from the Executive Rooms (Plexiglass Windows 20ft X 3 ft offering great views.
3. Hi Speed Wifi Internet
4. Fast Room Service
5. Courteous & Helpful Staff

Whats Average !!

1. Food Quality is just about ok !! There are wow's as well.
2. Buffet spread can be much better.

What's not well !!

1. Sufficient Heating arrangement not present in rooms / common areas.
2. No Lamb / Mutton spread for Non Vegetarians

Overall the place is very scenic and is quite worth a second visit because of its great location and it's the best in its types of family hotels which is great value for weekend visits !!

Room Tip: Please take the Executive rooms which are the costliest but the view from them is just awesome and t...
