A sparkling cocktail of courteous staff, historical property, and spectacular view. Service is 5*, drinks excellent and rooms fantastic. Absolute perfect stay with magnificent view of Shimla. Plus point it is only just 2 km walking distance from Mall Road Shimla.

We visited the restaurant at the Cecil on our last day in India and it was amazing beyond our expectations. From the kebabs to the local curries to the garlic butter naan, we were treated to a true culinary experience. The service, as with all Oberoi hotels, was just impeccable. Warm and welcoming while professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend visiting!
