Delicious food; mountain view from rooms

Posted 1 Jan, 2015

It was holiday trip with family members. The location of the hotel was convenient. It was located near to the highway. The hotel was situated in peaceful area. There was some problem with the electricity. I find that the room service was little bit late. The check-in and checkout was done quickly. I like the interior of the hotel very much. The room which was allotted to me was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. The room needs some renovations. The basic amenities in the room were functioning properly. The room had a mountain view. The hotel was maintained hygienically. I had preferred veg food. The food was tasty and delicious. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Beautiful hotel with remarkable experience

Posted 1 May, 2015

It is a very beautiful hotel. In the winter I stayed here and I really enjoyed here when snow was falling and that was the first time I saw a snow fall with my eyes so it was a remarkable experience for me. Here rooms are very nice, room service is good and food is nice. So I recommend this hotel to people who are travelling to Shimla.
