I love this hotel. This was my second visit and it did not disappoint. Visitors are greeted by impeccably trained staff who do not seem to see how sweaty, crumpled, dirty and tired the guests are as they arrive. The check-in (accompanied by a cool white towel and cold drink) is done with a minimum delay and without fuss. After just 30 minutes in my immaculately clean, bright and well-appointed room I was a new woman. I do love travelling in India - but I do find it tiring. Oberoi hotels never let you down and the Cecil is one of the best. I don't care about the lack of a view - although the one from my room was pretty good, there is enough to do in `Shimla that all you need to do in your room is relax and recoup. The spa treatments are excellent and well-priced. My meals were delicious, although some of the group complained their meal was cold - these were replaced immediately - and with a smile. One of the group was not well and the hotel could not have done more to make them comfortable and ensure they had everything they needed. I would love to criticise them but I can't.
