Beautiful hotel and efficient staff

Posted 8 Feb, 2016

The Hotel is one of the luxurious hotel in Shimla. It has beautiful ambiance and the rooms are pretty spacious and cosy. The interiors of the room are also very well made. I would rate it as top 5 hotels in Shimla. The staff here is very nice and efficient. The food quality is also very good. It is walking distance from Shimla market. We had reserved 4 rooms and the staff was helpful is giving us all rooms next to each other, although the hotel was fully booked. One of the best things about the hotel is the terrace restaurant. It is so very well made. The white wicker furniture on the terrace is outstanding. The climate was pretty cold. The terrace is very very large, with one section maintained for the bar. The lightings at night makes the place even more beautiful. We were almost 10 to 12 people and we had a wonderful time.

Best ambiance, rooms and service

Posted 2 Nov, 2015

The very look of front view is modern and appealing. The front desk is magnificent, and the staff compliments it. The lobby and lift gives a glimpse of luxury that will be followed in rooms. Rooms are terrific. There isn't a single item that has flaws. Rooms are so nice and luxurious that you will almost forget to roam around the city. Comfort in every sense with all amenities. Services are again flawless. Food is best. All food items seem like served right from heaven. True delicacies. Terrace gives a clear picture of Shimla with breathtaking view during sunset. Hotel bar is again classy. This hotel is the destination of Sheer luxury. Location is perfect near the Mall road. This hotel is undoubtedly the best hotel of Shimla.

Nice hotel and good stay

Posted 18 Jun, 2016

It is a nice property. We booked 3 rooms. Rooms were nice and clean. The Food and Service was excellent. For my 3 year old baby, they provided without spice food. Room service was excellent. The plus point is location. It is near Mall Road but still very quiet. We enjoyed a lot there.
