We 3 girls booked Spars Lodge on the Pay at hotel module. The room which we booked was for 2 adults double bedroom which before booking was confirmed by the hotel that 3 people could comfortably stay. Upon reaching the first thing we were told was that for 3rd person there would be extra charges. Somehow we considered it, the... More

Located up a hill away from traffic, overlooking Himalayas; basic rooms ; helpful staff; interesting fellow guests; close to pedestrian mall. Perhaps 10-minute walk from train station; excellent trout and other dishes. Only negative: failed to pick us up at statin, despite arrangements made before our trip.

Very difficult to find the place. The lodge was supposed to be an high level hotel, but in realty it wasn't at all.. The receptionist (I think the owner too) was ok, but not very welcoming.

We decided to stay here as it's a little way out of the main part of Shimla, so is very peaceful (although be warned of the steep hill to get to it! Good exercise though :)) The price was a little higher than expected, but we went for it anyway as we had arrived from an overnight bus at 6am... More

What can we say about the lovely stay. We went there late night with minimum expectations not sure about the hotel. However,it was just the way we wanted it. Cozy,picturesque view from glass window. Outstanding service and clean hygienic food. It was just a feeling of being in a beautiful quaint house.

Stayed here in winters,and had a very nice time. Away from the main town,but close to nature and institute of advanced studies. Cozy room,clean linen and welcoming staff. Tastiest possible food on the hills with a large variety to choose from the menu. Personalized attention from the owner. Lovely experience.

It's on a steep hike with very little scope for a car to stop by for getting luggage down . Rooms are decent ,views are great,linen was clean . Wardrobe etc shows signs of wear and tear. Wifi works only at the lobby . No parking for cars but walkable 1.5 kms from mall road.
