We (me and my wife) were there for 2 nights during our Shimla-Manali trip. This hotel is quite decent, rooms are very nice. Bathrooms are clean, It's like old fashioned british kind of rooms, it will be really a different experience staying there than like any modern typical rooms. It also has few Maharaja suites where all the items like cot, phones, chairs, lights, fans are old fashioned which we used to see in palaces (movies). I really had different experience there as all the items are old fashioned. Staff are quite helpful. We even got a early check-in. Free breakfast is very good.
The hotel built in 1892 during the British Raja retains it charm of a old period bungalow, but the owners have taken this charm very seriously. The big villa, it is also a beautiful villa with more than 5 rooms. They also have a very beautiful attic. The location and the view from the hotel is very beautiful. They have two very nice treks from the hotel. The hotel however lacks activities to keep the guests busy and also needs improvement in terms of better maintenance and enhanced customer satisfaction. Overall it was a nice experience.
