Positive Reviews

Magnificent mountain ambience

From the comfort of their rooms, guests were treated to views of lush green forests and the dramatic sight of mist tumbling down over the foothills of the Himalayas. These striking panoramas added a special something to the overall atmosphere here.

Great for exploring Shimla

Guests eager to get out and about were happy to find that this hotel also boasted a good location in terms of the hill station's main sights. In addition to being within walking distance of Lakkar Bazaar, this hotel also put guests within easy reach of The Ridge and The Mall.

Little touches make big impression

Guests were truly impressed by the thought and care that had gone into the toiletry packs and auxiliary amenities here. Small packs of biscuits and jugs of water as well as sewing kits, cold cream, shoe cloths, combs and even hair oil were all provided by this hotel. These small items made a big impression on guests.

Negative Reviews

Improvements needed to on-site eating options

On the whole, guests felt that the food and dining options here could stand to be improved. Many commented that, in terms of its pricing structure, the menu was on the dearer side. Also, guests disliked the fact that there was no dining area at this hotel; food could only be eaten in the rooms.

No lift

The lack of a lift here proved to be an inconvenience for guests, especially those who were not staying on the ground floor of this property. For example, those lodging on the penthouse level of this hotel had no choice but to lug their baggage up and down the steps.
