“don't understand the positive reviews!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

The property is nice with a beautiful garden overlooking a valley. Yes, the location is really nice, but if you're planning on going to Mall Road you'll need to walk for about 30 minutes near scary Himachal road traffic. The hotel's services are pretty expensive, we opted for outside tour guides and saved money. The room (Suite) was spacious and the bed was comfortable and clean, but the carpets and sofa looked dirty. The bathroom was also not good- toilet took a long time to flush and the shower drain was backed up. Also, the food was NOT good. We both got sick from it every time we ate and we suspect that most of the food was old and heated up in a microwave. Bottom line: nice location, but nothing more!

We stayed for 8 days in June, 2012. The whole experience was excellent. We stayed in a suite. The room was very spacious, nice, and clean with a large terrace that opened to a great view of the mountains. The hotel has a beautifully maintained garden and great sitting arrangements in the lawn. The food is delicious. The best part is, the hotel staff are very polite and helpful. They were always very particular about customer care. As the location is around 2 kms. from The Mall, the surroundings are comparitively much quiter and peaceful. Shuttle taxis are always available for going to The Mall. The whole stay was very enjoyable and relaxing. We are looking forward to visit again.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 days in Jul12, stayed in their suite category. Rooms are big and spacious, well maintained, bathroom clean. They have a resturant, food is good. The USP of this hotel is that it is approx 2-3Kms from the shimla, has an excellent view of the valley. The hotel is very well maintained with lawns and plants.

Blossom is 2km prior to mall road. It has small well manicured lawn with green grass, light music plays in evening which is add on boon. Food is good , hygenic and apt in quantity. We stayed in family suite for 3N/4D and room size was good with clean bath tub. There was huge verandah and view was amazing. Overall good hotel to stay.
More good if they could keep some indoor games for kids as its little far from mall road.

Room Tip: Corner family room are big, we stayed in 104 and it was gooooood.

Stayed for one night in this hotel with family. Hotel is located on main Delhi road (Cart road), around 2 kms before the Mall. Hotel has good parking for 7-8 cars. For going to Mall in evening one can hire a taxi for Rs 400 (drop & pick to Mall) as getting a parking near Mall can be tough during high season.
I stayed in the Suite room of the hotel and found it to be really nice. Spacious clean room with modern bathroom and mini fridge. The room opens to a common balcony area which offers great views of the green Himalayas. Also the big balcony area is a boon if you have a small kid with you as it gives them a decent area to play. Food is decently priced and tasty. I would certainly stay here again during my future visits.

Room Tip: Go for the suite room with attached balcony.

located just over 2km from the mail mall road, the location is ideal for someone reaching simla in a car. It has parking, lawns, greenery, rooms with balcony, & very clean bathrooms. We stayed in a suit and paid rs 3500/- in the peak season. But, the reception staff was unfriendly and non accommodating. The other staff was nice and hospitable. The food is average but the ambiance is nice in the lawns, with a nice view.

Room Tip: book in advance. Expect no discount when you walk in
