Excellent service, period rooms in grand old British mansion (down to the somewhat capricious bathroom appliances), fine dining with decent wine choice, good service. Special thanks to the reception staff who went out of their way to help sort out a medical emergency, driving me and the casualty to hospitals till 11pm.

This is an excellent Heritage property to stay. Just walking distance from the Mall but very peaceful and serene. We stayed at the Luxury Suite which was amazingly grand and spacious. The food was sumptuous and the staff was really courteous. Also The Hollywood bar gives a very classy touch to the property, we also loved our evening tea in... More

Walking distance away from the Mall Road, the property is located in a very lush green surrounding. With lawns and lot of open space the stay is real luxury here compared to other cramped hotels of Shimla. The rooms are spacious with all basic facilities. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The Hollywood bar of the hotel is just... More

I stayed there from 7/22 for a 4 night stay with my family. The room was very spacious and quite comfortable, views were breath taking, but its old and things are falling apart with little attempt to fix them, so, I will rate the room as 3 on a scale of 5, yet the whole experience was 5 out of...

After checking at the hotel we had ordered an extra bed for which had to remind the housekeeping department 3 times at least. The intercom was not working every time we had to go to the reception of the hotel. The doors were squeaking and could not lock the wash room doors. It was really pathetic and was embarrassed to...

Located in the most prestigious part of Shimla from the Bureaucracy/Administrations point of view .Albeit with a very nice view ,you simply cant see the ugly face of Shimla no matter how hard you try. Splendid walks towards the Mall and up to Jhakoo if you have the fortitude and fitness required. Rooms are neat comfortable though we had to... More

No doubt about the property but the attitude of the staff especially one Mr Gupta at reception was horrible to the core. I raised the issue to Mr Pathania (GM) however except a verbal apology nothing got done. The room service was very slow. Breakfast wasn't that great.
