There are several big halls which one can enjoy looking at, but the room disappointed a bit. Room are huge but NOT clean. Carpet was dirty. I really enjoyed the...

On the mid-weekend of November, 2016 I had a small stay there with my wife. It seemed that, for two days, we became the special couple getting such viceregal treatment. The complex is beautiful with excellent views of Shivalik mountain from room. The most important to mention is the quality of food. We had a feast of our taste buds...

We decided on Peterhoff because of the VIP suites with living area and balcony which we wanted for exclusive use. Also the ample parking and comfortable distance from central crowded Shimla. Knowing full well that it's HPTDC and govt run establishments are not known for their hospitality and comfort. We stayed over a weekend and enjoyed ourselves as the VIP...

The Peterhoff has housed at least seven Viceroys and Governors General of India during the British Raj is a luxury hotel now, rebuilt in 1991. A KM left to shimla station, it is near to IAS, another marvelous building of shimla. Insider architecture has been kept same as it was in British Raj. One can get a princely feeling wandering inside the peterhoff. Recommended for...

Once a residential and entertainment place of English Viceroys, now converted into a Hotel under HP Tourism, Govt. this place is worth staying. They have huge size rooms, halls, Garden, etc. Prices are well within range of budget travel. Good location. Booking convenience on net. However there costliest room is not worth trying.

It is one of the best hotel in India. The view and the lawn in front was awesome. The price was on the higher side but was worth the service and experience that was provided by the staff there. Hospitality and protocol was one of the best. Can give 7 star if option provided

We stayed in the VIP room, and it will be an understatement if i say the room was the size of a banquet hall! Huge rooms and equal size bathrooms! A separate dressing room,dining room,drawing room! The grandeur of the place will undoubtedly leave you awestruck at once! It has a massive banquet hall which you should see for the...

this is a heritage property located 2.5 km away from the mall road. Not meant for people who want to stay near the mall, where most of the good eating outlets are located. Best option if you are a nature lover & at the same time seek a budget accomodation.also, it has a huge parking space which is a rare...
