Great property, took us back to days of raj, I always wanted to stay in a vintage property at shimla.
Highlights of our stay
- Great location
- Well appointed rooms with right blend of colonial and modern styling.
- Kids Activity area
- spacious balconies
Lowlights of our stay
- we were offered rooms on first floor, inside of which is visible to people sitting In ground floor lounge.
- we were told that connected rooms are not available ( me and my brothers family were together), however room adjoining one of our rooms was vacant, this as discovered accidentally as the staff left the connecting door open and kids pushed it open, we were disappointed by this carelessness and lack of sensitivity towards our request.
- we were welcomed and asked to sit in the lounge while the welcome drink is served and check formalities are done, later staff escorted us to our rooms and told that welcome drinks would be served in the rooms, the welcome drinks were never served!!!!
- it took almost 1 hour for staff to get a cork screw to our room,
Summary: It's a great place definitely, however the service levels are much lower than the expectations. No special experience.
