The whole experience in staying at Shimla could not be complete if you do not stay at Oberoi Cecil. A heritage property, well preserved and maintained. We were overwhelmed by the EXTRAORDINARY OBEROI HOSPITALITY. This is beyond expectation. Our complete family leisure time was very well taken care by the management of the hotel right from the beginning to check-out. Everyone in the hotel whom we had interacted or used their service, their response and delivery was outstanding. Hats-off to the management. Moreover we are still not out the Shimla 'hangover' and we will definitely visit again and stay with family.

This is one of the best heritage property I have visited. Out of the world hospitality and service. The food was extremely good. We got an upgrade to the suite which was the best part. Deepika went out of her lengths to make our stay even more comfortable and memorable. The most important part was that I had forgotten my wallet in the room and I checked out and left for Manali and then for Chandigarh. So Mami one of the front desk manager made sure that it reached to me safely so she sent the wallet to our Chandigarh hotel before we headed back to our hometown. This was a very very kind gesture that is always going to remain with me of these hardworking people of Oberoi Cecil, Shimla. Highly recommended and kudos to the entire team.
