For a family holiday trip I went to the Shimla in the month of January 2017. I booked my stay through my friend. The hotel is located in a good place. That was away from the traffic and silent place. The appearance of the hotel was good. I liked the way they arranged a room. Every room was decorated in a different way. The reception staff was cooperative. The staff was pretty good and service was quick. The room was spacious and good. The food was excellent. The gym spa etc. were available. The pick and drop were available up to the Maal Road.
Overall, my experience there was okay and I stayed there two days. It was an official trip. Location of the hotel was okay-okay only and it was situated near about 4-5 km far from the city. I faced no problem to find this hotel. Appearance of the hotel was good. Staff behaviour was fine but they did not serve the food after or at about midnight. Our check-out was little bit delayed because we had some issues with the charges they billed us in our overall bill, as they charged us Rs. 800 extra for one swimming costume which we used during our swimming activity but we were never informed that it was chargeable and so it was bit disappointing for us. Room was fantastic and nice view was visible from the room window. All basic amenities were functioning properly like TV, fan, etc. Staff of the hotel was cleaning the room daily. Washroom was also tidy and hot water facility was available there. Food facility was available there but quality wise, the food was so-so. Room service was also available in food. Swimming pool was available there. They did not organize any sightseeing trip for us. They should expedite their services and also they should guide the customers in advance about what is chargeable and what is not chargeable. I have already recommended this hotel to my friends.

There not came bad small in the room. There room service and other service was very fast. There food test was real test of India. There food quality and quantity was very good and there rate was mideum. There dessert food was very amazing. We take breakfast it was extra ordinary. There food test was real test. There all servant behaviour so good and very kindly. I suggest you that you must be go to Shimla Nothing go to here and there. Directly goto this resort, There are all types of activity and good location. It was very good and very happy to their facility.
We stayed at this place for three nights. Hotel was clean overall. Moment you enter reception area, it gives a good feeling and confidence that you have chosen a nice place to stay. Check-in was quick and people were hospitable. We stayed in the Superior Room, which is the best type room available with them. Bed was large enough to sleep 2 adults and 2 kids. It was like two queen beds joined together. We were disappointed to see toilet, which was very dirty. We asked the reception, and they sent someone to clean it. Hotel did not change the room despite request citing non-availability. On-line reservations were available for same day though. Lighting was poor in bathroom and especially in the dressing area. Bed was large but, very ordinary. Sleeping comfort you expect from such an expensive hotel, was totally missing. Pillows were quite ordinary as well. Bed-rest was made of cloth, which was dirty and not giving a good feeling. View from the room was of inside garden, which was nicely maintained. Break-fast was above-average and had a decent variety. However, dinner was very ordinary in taste. Room gives feeling that hotel was not able to spend enough to maintain the good-rich feeling and things are deteriorating. All this is not so acceptable in a INR 8000+ room (including taxes but without any food). They have a small, but indoor swimming pool, which our kids enjoyed. Not too great for small kids with no swimming experience. It has a uniform depth of 4+ feet. Changing rooms are not great and shower not working. Goods: Hotel Cleanliness, great views from dining area. Inside heated swimming pool. Bads: Room cleanliness, over price, overall hospitality.
The overall stay was great. I did not have any difficulty in locating the hotel. The appearance of the hotel was good. The room was neat, clean and spacious. All the basic amenities were working in good condition. We get hot water only on timely basis. I had only breakfast. The staff behaviour was good and tasty. I have no complaints. The appearance was really good. They did not inform that there are leisure activities in the hotel. This was a trip with my friends. No delay during check-in and checkout. Overall, stay was value for money. I would like to recommend this hotel to others. This trip was in November 2013. Destination was very good.
Choose this hotel for honeymoon as it is not in clutter and its a stand alone property. So you will love it more being little away from hustle bustle. We opted for a super deluxe room and it was really comfortable with a super king size beds. Even in extreme winter conditions heater was working superb. After this hotel visited many hotels in himachal but did not get such warm environment in room. View from the room was full of pine trees so proper valley or mountain view could not be seen that was a little disappointment. Staff were helpful and always smiling. Good open area for breakfast or just to chill and chit chat. Food was tasty. Overall a very good experience. Must stay!!!
