The place is beautiful! But don't expect anything else except beauty of nature! Horrible service! Horrible staff! Worst food! Totally disappointed! Not recommended at all. Management needs to get a reality check with how poorly they treat guests

Loved the resort from the moment we entered there, it has classic decor with whole loads of botany everywhere. The rooms and restaurant will give a feeling of having visited a place from some old century, which is an experience in itself. Loved the weather when we went which made it even more beautiful. The resort is situated on top,...

It's an iPhone 7 but without iOS!! This property is full of contradictions!! Amazing location but congested layout! Attention to detail (every room is unique) but pits when it comes to service! Cozy rooms but commode may protest to flush! Great food taste but inflexible attitude (no a la carte) Worse of all is the front desk - finding ways...

It was a wonderful stay. Would definitely like to visit in winters while it's snowing! It was a wonderful experience. I went to Shimla for the first time , I had a booking somewhere else but i was too worried as I did not like the location. However, I ultimately found the best location and will definitely come here again...

Every service in room is charged Rs. 100. Eg. If you order tea in addition to cost you end up paying extra Rs. 100 every time you summon...
