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... More

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... More

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... More

I visited this hotel to enjoy vacation with family. Hotel is good and hotel staff was helping in nature. Rooms were clean and room service was good too. Mall road is far away from hotel. Hotel has got a restaurant too.

Big beautiful hotel in quiet yet convenient location, vast high ceilings in rooms. However food absolutely terrible - "chicken sizzler" amongst one of the most repulsive things we'd ever tasted. Staff surly. Rooms grubby (for goodness sake - take a vacuum cleaner under the bed - there could almost be a deceased guest under there that you couldn't detect with... More

Great location (near viceregal lodge and beautiful hill views) and huge heritage property with beautiful lawn. But You will not get feel of luxury (with the amount you'll pay). It's more of state guest house and functions banquet. I've been here twice but this time I took suite room to enjoy luxury but OMG it was regular room. I've been... More
