Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is located in a scenic spot between the hills of Shimla. The view from the terrace and restaurant is supreme. Rooms are very clean, hygienic and with all modern amenities. The hotel even provided small gift packets with fruits, cookies etc. One needs to pay extra for a room with a view. King size rooms are a bit smaller compared to other 3-4 star properties I have stayed in. The bathroom size and facilities are average as compared to similar 3-4 star properties in other cities. However it is very well maintained. The service is excellent; everyone from front desk to the restaurant is invested in making your stay pleasant. Even the hotel manager Mr. Rawat provides personal attention to the guests. The sauna and steambath facilities work well too. The pool is available albeit we didn't use it given the cold weather. A challenge is travel to and from the main city, given location on the outskirts. Taxis charge between 1000-1500 for a drop off to mall.road and pick up back to the hotel. The ride to mall road is about 20 min. The tours to relevant tourists spots such as Jakhoo temple, Kufri etc are readily arranged. I recommend using the same taxi service identified after you disembark at the train/bus station. This will save some time as ola/uber do not work in shimla. One needs to call the taxi service/driver to make a booking. He may take 15-20 min to arrive at the hotel. All in all, good views excellent service, with some challenge regarding access.
