Brightland was a good find. The place is just 10 min away from the mall as well as very close to the quieter parts of Shimla that have the heritage buildings. Its a steep climb...but one can enjoy the walk with a little rest in the middle. It is also right next to the army training command areas, hence quieter. The... More

The board outside the hotel says 5 minutes to the mall road,in actual it takes 25 minutes to walk. There is a fixed timing for hot water which is a ridiculous thing in shimla where the water...
