An excellent stay at Southgate Hotel, Shimla

5.1/7
Posted 12 Oct, 2017

We went to shimla for a relaxed vacation. we stayed at Southgate hotel, shimla. It's a very nice hotel situated at Chhota shimla, a nice quiet surroundings, beautiful view from the rooms. Amenities at room were good, very very comfortable beds. Only our room didnt have balcony which we missed. Lawns are beautifully maintained. The Hotel has a British style lounge and bar, which gave a really beautiful look. The Food is very tasty we had buffet breakfast the variety was good and even room service the food was tasty. House keeping and all the staff are very polite, courteous and helpful. They should plant some more flowers in their lawns and should provide balcony with every room as the view from room is too good, we would have enjoyed more. Overall a very good stay. Keep it up the staff and owners of Southgate. A beautiful Hotel.

Nice property away from city hustle

4.9/7
Posted 4 Oct, 2017

Nice property with decent amenities. Pros: Away from city hustle ,Food was good,break fast could be improved. Cons:If you don't have ur own vehicle then it is problem for you to travel to mall road. Every time you have to spend 500 bucks for to and fro from hotel otherwise 30 min walk. Secondly I opted to super deluxe room but that room was different from what I saw in pictures from goibibo. So disappointed with the size of that room as compared to pics.

Peaceful location

6.3/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

It was a holiday trip with family. It was in the month of May 2017. I booked this hotel directly. The location was on hilly area and had lawn and it was peaceful not much crowded. As it is an out area. As for food morning buffet was better then dinner. They had parking facility which was free. They had there own restaurant and breakfast was complimentary which was good and tasty but in dinner I had ordered 2-3 dishes which was not tasty I did not like it. I had booked an super deluxe room it was well maintained and it was clean and everything was available it had sofa and water tea and in bathroom all the utility was available and even hair dryer was available for my wife which was good and it had good view from balcony and nice greenery the bedding was fine. The service was on time as they had mentioned minimum 20min but I was getting before only. The reception staff was very polite and she spoke very softly the reception area was not that better as sitting area was small it should be little big and the area was small. The interior of hotel was pleasant as they have swing and proper sitting in lawn area and the lighting was looking nice in lawn roses was there which was looking attractive. They have lift facility but my room was in ground floor. I would obviously suggest this hotel to others. I had problem only in dinner as I had ordered malai kufta which was not tasty buffet was better. They should improve the food and reception area should be bit large it will be better.
