Awesome hotel with mesmerising view

Posted 21 Dec, 2015

I really like this hotel. This is really a awesome hotel I ever seen. This hotel play an important role in your happy holidays. Outer view from the hotel is very mesmerising. It's building is very attractive. The staff were very respectful. They treated us politely and with respect. The rooms are well-decorated and the food are well cooked and tasty too. I suggest to all of you please choose this hotel if you ever visit Shimla.

I s\'pose the expectations of The Peterhoff did us...

Posted 23 May, 2006

I s\'pose the expectations of The Peterhoff did us in...when we were told it was a heritage hotel, we grabbed the opportunity to book rooms there. It still is the Govt. guest house. Lets look at the overall experience : 1. The check-in was smooth..after a drive of over 4 hours (with kids) i was quite happy to be quickly whisked away to our rooms...with running Hot water (NO NO not the kind u see on the TV ad these days with Ramu running around the room with a bucket of hot water) but a nice hot shower ! 2. Rooms...very very spacious....but i think quite over priced, considering the ammenities are quite basic..i spose u are paying for the size !! But the walks along the corridors to our rooms were very very smelly. (Stinky, in fact!!). The carpets were probably not cleaned since the British occupants left the property ages ago ! 3. Food : Quite average, i must admit. 4. Staff : The guys at the reception counter were very helpful and friendly, but the rest of the staff, were usually nowhere to be found, till of course they had to deliver your luggage to your room and pick it up when u check out...for the tip, maybe??? 5. Room Service : Excuse me..what was that again ??? Whats room service sir ?? They have a number listed in the directory..but u should consider yourself lucky if someone answers the phone. No one did for the 3 days we stayed there!! 6. View from the rooms : I think since we occupied the \'cheaper\' rooms, we were forced to watch only the drivers cleaning their cars in the car park! Sadly the bonnets weren\'t snowed least we cud have watched the snow even if it only being cleaned away by drivers !! Overall experience : Don\'t think i wud do The Peterhoff again !! Not even if i get the Room with the View!

A Heritage Hotel, carved in British Architecture

Posted 23 Sep, 2011

It was a wonderful Holiday in Shimla in the rainy rains with my Husband. We spent the best of times there, looking over the beautiful valley in mystic clouds. Roaming on the streets with ..talking to local people..exploring nearby places..the curves of mountains..the deep valley.. All in all it was the most Romantic trip :)
