Sitting in the jacuzzi looking out at the Himalayas was the most marvellous experience. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Close enough to the Mall for shopping but not too noisy. My room was at the back of the hotel so the view wasn't brilliant but the entire experience was wonderful and I'd love to go back.

Had a good time staying at this old but renovated property. Staff was always welcoming and food was the highlight especially the in room dining.

View from the room was not great and could hear occasional trafiic noise but not too bad. Had a very good variety of recreation activities

This hotel is a fabulous place to escape the bustle of Shimla. The rooms are luxurious and we particularly enjoyed the amazing indoor pool. Food and service in the restaurant are top rate.
