"Helpful Staff's and Clean room"

Posted 2 Mar

We stayed here in December. We had an awesome experience here. It was a family trip with. We booked it online. Even though they had transportation facility available, as we had our own car, we didn't use it. The hotel was well maintained. We faced no delays in booking or anything. The staffs were very helpful. It had a good Wi-Fi and it had basic amenities readily available. They even had a coffee maker available in the room. The room was clean. They provided us complimentary breakfast, and they had variety of food available. As we had our trip already planned, we hadn't signed up for any activity. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

"An outstanding Hotel, best hospitality"

Posted 7 Oct, 2015

The resort is the quintessential British Raj property. With an eclectic mix of antique items, furniture and paintings it will surely transport you back to the British era. It is beautifully located among the pines, away from the noise of the city. One can immerse in the tranquillity of the forest from the open grassy lawn area. Rooms are immaculately clean with basic amenities. The staff is courteous and graceful. Pick and drop facility is also provided by the management. The resort also boasts of numerous films shot here. Book lovers can indulge in the leather library and for the sports enthusiasts air rifle shooting is also available. Food served is a definitive plus point. A special thanks to the general manager for his impeccable hospitality Mr. Vinod Rajput a laconic, thoughtful man. A sterling team of management. If you need a relaxing stay with a royal touch.. This is a place for you.

"Beautiful villa but needs better maintenance "

Posted 21 Nov, 2015

The hotel built in 1892 during the British Raja retains it charm of a old period bungalow, but the owners have taken this charm very seriously. The big villa, it is also a beautiful villa with more than 5 rooms. They also have a very beautiful attic. The location and the view from the hotel is very beautiful. They have two very nice treks from the hotel. The hotel however lacks activities to keep the guests busy and also needs improvement in terms of better maintenance and enhanced customer satisfaction. Overall it was a nice experience.

"Amazing services from the staff and I enjoyed it"

Posted 5 Nov, 2014

The hotel was located conveniently. The staffs were co-operative, humble and very polite in behaviour. The service they provided was helpful. The room given was well maintained with amenities placed in proper conditions. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The appearance of the hotel from inside as well as outside was excellent. The food was very good served with both veg and non-veg. There were indoor and outdoor games. The total destination was great and money spent on hotel was valuable. I like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

"Good experience with good facilities "

Posted 13 Jan, 2016

We (me and my wife) were there for 2 nights during our Shimla-Manali trip. This hotel is quite decent, rooms are very nice. Bathrooms are clean, It's like old fashioned british kind of rooms, it will be really a different experience staying there than like any modern typical rooms. It also has few Maharaja suites where all the items like cot, phones, chairs, lights, fans are old fashioned which we used to see in palaces (movies). I really had different experience there as all the items are old fashioned. Staff are quite helpful. We even got a early check-in. Free breakfast is very good.

"Beautiful property with nice service"

Posted 21 Aug, 2014

While planning for trip I found this property on Web portal. I saw the reviews about this property, those reviews were awesome. Therefore, I decided to go with those reviews. Finally, I went to Shimla and met with Hotel manager. He is really very much cooperative and very nice person. He sent hotel transportation to pick us from Bus stand though transportation was not mentioned in invoice. He had arranged transportation several times as per my request, so finally I can say that I am happy with the service. In nearby future I would like to go Shimla again specially for British Resort.
