A wonderful stay in an amazing city. Staff were friendly & helpful. The room was a good size with stunning views. The bed was comfortable & the room had everything you would need & was well presented. The restaurant is great with good friendly service, plenty of options and nice food. The location is great, at the end of the Mall & far enough away from the main part of town to be nice & peaceful for a good sleep. It is a bit of a steep walk up to The Mall from the hotel, but hey, everything in Shimla is steep - it is the Himalayas after all. It's not really a problem for most people, especially once you've done it a couple of times, but very elderly or extremely unfit people might need to do it slow. It's nowhere near as steep as many other places I saw around town though! You can get a taxi to and from the train station direct to the front door, which is a bonus & better than most places in Shimla. Get reception to ring for a taxi to the station. Coming from the station, if the taxi driver tries to drop you at the closed road near the High Court, get him to ring the hotel for directions to drive straight to the front door, otherwise it will be a steep, difficult walk. The bathroom was modern & clean - the only issue was the water pressure in the shower for the hot water which was not the best - my room was just a trickle whilst I was there - though I've experienced worse & it just meant a bit longer to have a shower. I imagine it would be much better on lower floors. Also, I didn't find out that they hire out heaters until I was leaving, when they asked me if I had hired one, when checking out. Whilst the blankets provided are good, the room is very cold in the winter at night (during the day is fine) and there had recently been some heavy snowfalls. A suggestion - that maybe guests are always advised of the option of hiring a heater when checking in - I think a lot would be unaware. I would definitely have done so. Once in bed though, was nice & warm & comfortable. Overall it was quite a pleasant stay and I would definitely stay again & recommend to others!
