The hotel is a historical landmark in Shimla and architecturally it reflects our colonial past. The luxurious interiors are all reminiscent of the British past. Unfortunately there is no lift to take one to the Restaurant below and elderly persons will find it difficult to climb up the stairs after the food. The main highlight of this hotel I feel is the smiling faces of the staff who strived to make our stay memorable. We forgot a diamond ring near the window. When we returned the room was all cleaned, the shoes were kept neat and our used clothes on the bed were all folded and kept on the rack. When we returned to the room we found the ring was kept on the table carefully. There is a hotel policy not to tip the staff which is displayed everywhere. The food menu could have been better, unfortunately due to our short stay and cancellation of flights to Shimla to and from Delhi were cancelled due to bad weather I don't know about the dinner. The hotel staff was all very friendly and tried their best, but variety could have been better. The bathroom was luxurious but it would be better to provide a handshower also near the toilet. All in all a great stay and a memorable experience.

I stayed at Oberoi Cecil for 3 nights on a personal trip and loved the experience. Everything about this hotel was wonderful. The food was delicious. The staff was courteous and polite. The property is massive, and you can spend some good time inside the hotel in addition to exploring the city. I strongly recommend this place for a luxurious stay in Shimla.

A luxurious stay in a heritage hotel. The ammenities are fabulous including warm water swimming pool. I checked in on my kid's 2nd birthday & I had a pleasant surprise from them. They had decorated our room with lovely balloons. They also had a yummy cake in place. Thanks a lot for the same. It was a memorable stay for us. Surely, these guys spoil you with heightened expectations.
