Its s good property and well maintained. Food is also good with the option to try out local flavor. Renting a car through club Mahindra travel desk is though expensive. Quite a few activities are carried out in the community hall and options to go out on adventure trips also organized by the club.

Wonderfully located and great place to spend time with family & kids. Mashobra is a beautiful place and this hotel makes it even better. Good food and good recreation activities. The staff was very friendly and knows well how to deal with families. All the kids traveling with us also had a memorable holiday.

Club Mahindra Whispering Pines is located in Mashobra, around 15 KMs from Shimla. We had planned the trip so that we catch the early morning Shivalik Express hill train from Kalka to Shimla. The winter fog had other plans, and we ended up taking a cab to the hotel, from Kalka. The cab arranged by the hotel was comfortable, and the drive beautiful.

On reaching the hotel, we were given a valley facing studio room. Unlike other Club Mahindra properties, the design of the rooms is a bit different, with a separate sitting and dining area in each studio. There's no kitchenette facility. The washroom was spacious, and well designed. The room was tastefully furnished, had heating, and a plasma TV. The approach/entrance to the hotel is quite unique, in form of a hanging bridge that connects the road to the hotel reception. There is just one restaurant that serves buffet as well as a-la-carte. The quality of food could have been better. The dining area and reception face the valley, and you could spend good time at these places. There's a spa, recreation center, and a guest help desk that arranges local sightseeing/ transport etc.

The resort is well located near Shimla, and popular tourist destinations like Narkanda, Kufri, Chail etc. We saw a little bit of snow around the resort in Jan end. Narkanda, a winter sport destination, is an hour's drive from the resort. Overall, the resort is well placed for travelers wanting to enjoy a mix of Shimla, and destinations around.

I visit Club Mahindra Whispering Wines with my family and stayed there for 4 nights. It was nice experience for first day but on the second day you feel this hotel lacks entertainment / facilities are very lesss. Apart food menu is very restricted, very few items to order, Whatever we ordered them , alll food items were below average. I have visited Club Mahindra Mussorie & Jim Corbett Property, but this property is not upto the mark. It looksl ike 3 star property, Carpet is stinking , quite old. Only good thing is its location & Kennedy House staff. Club Mahindra has taken this property for 3 yrs lease , but they are not concentrating on quality standards of this hotel.

We took a very serious risk of visiting Shimla in the month of January with a small kid but thankfully we reached Club Mahindra Whispering Pines, Mashobra without any problem.It was a nice hotel made in a very fabulous way with different type of rooms including a suite in which we stayed.The room was luxurious as to say with LCD Television,Mini Fridge,Centralised Heater and comfortable beds.We had taken valley facing room so the view from the room was very nice and we were to able to see Sunrise one day when we woke up early by chance.

The Restaurant was also quite good and the food quality was excellent with a variety of dishes to choose from.It also has a Fun games room where there are many games which we can play.

And last but not the least we were also fortunate to witness Snowfall first time in m,y life and we enjoyed it to the hilt. A dream come true.

Just back from this very nicely located Club Mahindra hotel. This was a first visit to Club Mahindra and it was really good with friends.
Very nice location, around 20-25 minutes from the famous Mall Road of Shimla, it can be easily located if you follow the way to Mashobra and it lies in exactly there. We reached quite late in the night and in heavy rain and managed to get in a check in fast and quick.
The hotel has 3 floors and has a decent size lobby and lots of seating space.
Rooms were a concern, the cooling was not desired, was sweating some time in the night and had to switch on the pedestal fan even after putting the minimum temperature of room and max fan speed.
Being facing the entrance, the noise of cars entering and exiting the pathway which is a beautiful bridge disturbed sleep many a time.
The best part of the whole stay was the Food and the service provided, the breakfast had adequate food and lots of variety and the staff was always willing to hear you out on the things which you wish to get done. In Room Dining was quick and very well laid out. Really impressive. Totally a 5star deluxe experience.
Rooms were good, 1 single and 1 double bed were there and a small kitchen. The morning view is the best I have ever seen in any North India side. Early moning fog looks great, after it gets cleared then you can see wonderful heights and the great great views.
It looked amazing.
Spa and play area was nice and loads of options for kids to enjoy.
Would recommend to stay here and to experience the service and fall in love with the location.
