“Mixed feelings - excellent view/room but service needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We stayed here for Honeymoon through makemytrip package.
- Offers excellent view. Room is nice and cozy.
- Being December it was too cold and they offered room-heater of the size of set-top box! Not at all effective.
- Not much impressed with dining area and food overall.
- Package involved candle-light dinner which we expected to be in-room for honeymooners. But instead it was candle-light dinner for ALL in the Dining area. Which felt more like having dinner with electricity gone :(
- Package also involved honeymoon cake which they delivered after 11PM. Besides we had just arrived about 10PM after full day's journey from Delhi. Never mind, that cake wasn't so great either :(
Would I go there again? Not sure! Would prefer to try something else.

Room Tip: Make sure to get rooms facing pine-woods' view.

We stayed in this Hotel through MakemyTrip from 7th to 10th JUNE 2013. We stayed in the Deluxe Room of Hotel FairMount Shimla with deodar and pine trees views.The Hotel Room was very very clean, lovely interiors, Water Heater was available in the room as it was cold there. The Hotel staff were very hospitable. Everyone has a smiling face and very helpful nature. Even the hotel`s driver Mr. Thakur (i think so) is very cooperative. who helped us a lot. The food was the excellent. Each and every dishes were excellent in taste. couldn`t enjoy the BAR as it was under renovation. But rest all was good. Loved my stay in this Hotel.

Room Tip: ask for the hill view room.

This was a one of the two hotel I stayed in Shimla, excellent service, co-operative staff, good food, good and refreshing environment , attracting beauty / scenery all around. Will always stay in my wish list. Only one point which make me re-thing is transportation, far away from public transport makes you fully dependent on hotel transport facilities. Transportation is costlier in shimla

We stayed in this hotel, last year March - April 2012, The rooms are very good, it is located approx 5 Km away from Shimla Mall Road. The Hotel is located amidst Pine and Deodar trees and has fresh air all around the day. Very Peaceful place. Food is Good. Jhaaku Temple is near from this hotel.
It is refreshing to go out on a morning or evening walk, while staying at this hotel.

Use Nokia GPS and follow the course. I have marked its coordinates, it will take you right upto this hotel location, ( from Delhi...) but then when it tells you, that you have reached your destination, get down and just ask someone or nearby hotel, about the exact location, since you may miss a steep road going up towards the hotel. Use first gear to drive up towards the hotel, or if you have difficulty call someone from hotel, down the gradient. Daytime driving is advisable. We reached this hotel at around 8 pm and i was driving honda sedan. The steep slope road upto hotel can accomodate Tata Safari level of vehicles, but slight expertise driving required !

Room Tip: Look for a room with window facing the road.

I can summarize my complete bad experience in the bullets listed below:
1. No Fresh air in the room (Permanently closed window)
2. On complain they will apply cheap room-freshener.
3. Very bad road to Hotel.
4. Dining area is like Chinese dhaba.
5. Food smells like anything !
6. Beware ! Don't pay them in advance.. they will never refund your money unless you made them aware of consumer court.
7. Cake - Just don't ask... looks like if given to beggar (see photos)
8. Fruits - I'll throw them in dustbin (see photos)
9. Milk - Eeeeeeeew
10. Food & Dining - I always had outside, just can't tolerate to sit and eat in stinky atmosphere.
11. Rooms and bathroom smells...
12. They decorate rooms with cheap artificial flowers...
13. Unhygienic bedsheets and pillows... not cleaned properly...

Room Tip: All rooms are stinky as window never opens and they keep on applying room freshners. Fresh air never...

Amazing hotel set around the scenic mountains .The hotel staff is quiet decent and well trained.Hotel rooms neat and tidy.morning breakfast was well served upon.The negative part being that its a bit outside Shimla town, so vehicle is necessary.Other negative feed back being that the entrance is not being quiet visible and only a small path to move in to the hotel, only one vehicle can move at a time , hence the entrance needs to be looked upno. Overall its average.

Room Tip: Any room facing towards the mountains would have a good view.
