Never ever go there in January. We arrived after 18 inches of snow had fallen.There is no heating in the rooms apart from an electric fire. Diners were eating wearing overcoats. The staff had no idea how to serve a meal or look after their guests although the offer of hot water bottles was well intentioned. Made Fawlty Towers look good. Internet access was down. The plumbing in the bathroom was quite frankly dangerous. Wires coming from hot water tanks and scalding steam coming from the taps. The hotel boasts about is 1930's feel but nothing has been done to it since and it is frankly archaic. Would give a minus rating if I could.
Loved Shimla though which we thought was an amazing place and the people were very friendly.
