"Hotel review"

7.0/7
Posted 2 months ago

Awesome hotel with awesome service. The best part was the food at that place. You can find here any type of cuisine at affordable prices. The hotel is on the mall road so it is very easy to travel around the city. The accommodation is a bit costelier but a good one.

"Not so pleasant stay at Combermere "

4.5/7
Posted 5 days ago

Thank you for not so pleasant stay at Combermere!! Hindrances: 1) No Wi-Fi. Reason cited was technical snag throughout Shimla. Why to advertise Wi-Fi availability, if not in a working condition? 2) Construction activity near the public lift area. I understand it's outside the management control, but as a courtesy to the guest arriving, this should be notified via your website or should be notified while check-in. 3) Telephone instrument within the room not in working condition. Ideally this can be verified while making the room tidy before the guest arrival. 4) Bathroom door getting locked multiple times. Reason cited was the door was locked from inside. A bathroom door is meant to be locked from inside, isn't it? The only USP of your hotel is the 4th floor restaurant, Cafe Sol & access to Mall road. But this facilities can also be availed by an outsider, not staying in the hotel. I feel the "4 Star" status of the hotel is not justified considering the above issues and the luxuries provided within the room (eg. Substandard toiletries). Now coming to tariff, I paid 7. 2k/night excluding breakfast, is not supportive of the services offered. Lastly, the reception crew (Mr. Anil Kumar) is not polite, courteous and receptive to address and resolve issues.

"Location not good for the hotel"

3.9/7
Posted 1 month ago

Not happy with the hotel and construction was going on so it was very annoying. I told the hotel but the paid was already paid by me through MakeMyTrip so I have no option. So think hotel should know this and work on it. And make people happy by solving their problems

I had been to this hotel in January for business purpose. The destination Vijayawada has good temples around. The location of the hotel was good in the main of the city near market. The appearance of the hotel was good. The services were done on time in the front office. The staff and their behaviour were good in the hotel. The room I stayed in was good and comfortable. The hotel had no restaurant facility.

"Best Hotels in The Hills"

6.2/7
Posted 1 year ago

I visited Shimla with my wife and chose Combermere after going through a number of choices and I can say it was worth it. It was some time back - November 2015. Awesome place, great staff and good food is what I think makes a good hotel and this place has all of it. Though slightly heavier on your pocket but you wont regret spending a bit more than others on this one. The hotel has its own lift for Mall road hence no hassles, both open and indoor restaurants with nice food. Staff is nice and friendly, rooms were clean and tidy and gave the feel of the money I spent. I would definitely like to stay here again in my next visit to Shimla without second thoughts.

I had gone to Shimla for the first time. My cousin suggested me to stay here. I reached the hotel in the morning. Nice Hotel having access to Mall Road. Rooms are good. Bathroom is slightly small. Service is good. They have an excellent restaurant on top level serving pizzas and pasta and other continental cuisine. Check-In and Check-Out was fast. Some rooms have excellent view of the valley. Everything is in satisfaction. Thanks for a great experience. Cheers.

I stayed here for 1 day. This hotel location and hospitality is amazing. The very good thing is that it has direct connectivity with mall road. Rooms are very good, clean and room has balcony too, so that one can have a look of the outside. I recommend this hotel to my friends and family members.
