Two days of absolute comfort and happiness - that's how I would like to describe my stay at the Oberoi Cecil. The passionate service of the hotel staff - from top to bottom, the feel of being welcome everywhere on the property and the dedication to deliver happiness and comfort to the guests - sets this hotel apart from the rest. Infact, the service which they deliver - makes Taj, Hyatt, ITC stand like wannabes . . Oberoi Cecil is a wonderful property with excellent decor, which is both classy and modern. The entire hotel has enmeshed ingredients of the bygone colonial "Raj" days of India with speckled flavour of modern renovations like the indoor swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. We are thankful to the hotel staff to have accepted our request for the valley view room - making our short trip a memorable one forever. Our room on the third floor had a valley facing balcony which opened the entire face of city to us - offering breathtaking view of the beauty of Shimla The facilities at the hotel are top class and so is the service. The friendliness of the staff goes beyond words or description. One very interesting thing about the staff is the way they endearingly talk about Mr Oberoi - their guiding mentor and the patriarch of the group. The man lives on - I tell you !!! He does, through these people who embody his core principles. Its not appropriate to take names and I won't because it belittles the effort of everyone who works at Cecil as a team but for Team Cecil - just one small advise - KEEP IT UP! That's all you guys need to do.

The service at the Oberoi Cecil is exceptional, the staff literally couldn't do enough for us. Our room was beautiful, very clean and with fabulous views from the balcony. The breakfasts were superb and again with excellent service. We used the laundry service which was also excellent. A very enjoyable stay in Shimla and if we return we'll definitely return to the Oberoi. The lounge/bar area was super, with a great feel, looking up to the floors above and the skylight. The dining room was great, with superb food and the most genuinely attentive staff I have ever come across.

We stayed at this hotel while on a tour of northern states like Himachal, J&K, and Punjab. This is a most bautiful palace, it is superb you want great hospitality & amazing food, then this is your hotel to be. This was my second visit and their hospitality inspired me to write about them. I am simply awed by Oberoi's staff, what a great team you have! They cooperated in every possible way. Would like to mention a little about the chef, Mr. Raj kumar Bhatia, his gestures made it super memorable. His warmth and love showered on us would again ensure that when in Shimla, we have to stay in Cecil only. Not only a great chef but also a great human being. Thank you Oberoi team and Mr. Bhatia for their dedicated service.

As always, it was a wonderful experience at the Oberoi's. The service was impeccable. Prateek Gulati, the Assistant Manager at the property was extremely courteous and helped making our stay extra comfortable. He made sure to cater to all our needs. It is personal touches such as these that make it a 10/10 experience every time we stay at any of the Oberoi hotels Good work and good luck to the Oberoi team for the future.
