I have taken this trip inspired by a Biography on M S Oberoi, the legendary Hotelier. I must have read it at least 6 months back and I have set my eyes on Shimla since then. Staying at Cecil was a good experience and I loved every minute of it. Spa was brilliant and the restaurant was with great service - though i had opted for In Room dining for my meals except breakfast. The rooms were of no great view as its facing the road below. They also have rooms facing the valley which will be great. A very hands on General Manager of the Hotel has provided with a book on the walking trails in Shimla and it was a source of great help for my Walk through the Mall area on the following day. Walking trip is brilliant and with all the chaos one see on the lower Shimla, you are suddenly taken by surprise by the way they have kept it clean in the Mall area. It's a beautiful area and the shopping is excellent.
All in all, it was all worth a visit to Shimla and to the excellent Cecil Hotel.
