Possibly the best in terms of location to watch the peaks, also pretty good service of food but remains limited with the typical service of government hotels. Rooms are not well maintained. I had booked the best possible option of room in super deluxe room which the manager said as two available. However, few things needed attention in the room - carpet didn't look clean, wall cupboard had cracks & seemed like falling anytime, broken mug in bathroom, balcony plaster broken, bed linen looked dirty & the list will go on. It is really unfortunate that in spite of booking for the best room option months in advance, the holiday mood gets soured because of the possible mistake of booking in government hotel after the assurance that hotels are class apart with respect to other state government hotel chains. Expect more attention from to fix problems quickly.
I had visited this hotel for family trip. The ambience was good. I didn't face any problem in check-in and check-out. The hotel staff was friendly. The service was not delayed. All amenities were in working condition. The heater facility was provided in the room. The food quality was not good. There were no activities arranged in the hotel. The money spent at the hotel was worth.
Hotel is situated away from Shimla about 170 km. Good sightseeing. Sarahan is famous for it's Mata Bhima Kali Temple. I often went their and prefer Hotel Shrikand to stay. It covers adventure, religious, heritage, mountain and wild life. Tragopan phesantry is situated nearby and also Raja Sahab Heritage Palace very good to see.
The location of the hotel was very good. The sightseeing places were quite close to the hotel The staff of the hotel were very nice. I didn't have any issues with them. They had provided us prompt service. The appearance of the hotel was fine. The room given to me was very big. The amenities were also working properly in the room. Mountain View was visible from the room. The food was taken from the hotel and it was good in quality and variety. Check-in and check-out was done on time. The activities were not conducted at the hotel. The hotel had not arranged any sightseeing trip. The destination was very nice. I had already recommended this hotel to others. The hotel didn't require any development.
I have enjoyed a lot of there because this is my dream to visit Shimla, the hotel in which I am residing I think is the best and the excellent hotel in the Shimla. My room tariff was Rs 1200 per day. I reached easily hotel because location was good. Staff service was okay. Room was okay-okay
From internet reviews and friends in Armed forces, I had known before hand that the visit to Sarahan is like talking to nature and experiencing peace and tranquility. I booked Hotel Shrikhand for two nights and reached Sarahan by hired taxi at around 12. 30 PM. And immediately fell in love with the place. It had more than I had heard Hotel Shrikhand. Rooms and amenities. Rooms were big and spacious and our windows opened directly facing snow covered peaks. Hotel has Good restaurant, a bar and an open sky lounging place near bar where you can just sit and get lost in natures beauty Hotel Shrikhand has two cottages which can give you feel of owning the place but rent is steep. Almost double than normal 1900 ( including taxes) you pay for normal double bed room. If you can afford, just go for Cottage Advice to Travellers: If you are somebody whose passion is tourism and money does not count, a cottage in Shrikhand is for you. The waiters are very courteous and service good. But, if you feel that money is big consideration, get some other private owned places where a room with good facilities are available for half the cost. But you have to book on arrival which is no problem if you reach before 30th April. For travellers who want to have good stay but overall expenses within a budget, the best way is to get a double bedroom in Shrikhand and eat out. The food though supposed to be very good in Srikhand Restaurant, may cost you almost 10 times than simple fare offered by nearby eateries where you can have a fill for as less as Rs. 50 Things I would do Differently. Our trip turned out to be one day and two nights. Instead, I would like to make it one night and two days. Start from Simla early. Keep your luggage in the taxi. Go around till 12 PM. Then Check in. After rest and change, go to Bhimakali Temple, know about evening arti and morning arti and then enjoy your remaining part of the day seeing zoo, Kings palace, follow some trail to hill villages and come back in time for late evening tea, then Arti and then Dinner After Bath in the morning next day, again attend arti in Bhimakali temple. Then have breakfast ( They make good potato Paratha even in run down eateries). Check out at 12 noon, take Lunch and start for Simla. Do not forget to enjoy Tatta Pani visit on the way. The taxiwala will have to do a little detour and may demand extra if you have not settled beforehand. Our Taxi fellow ( we hired an Alto) charged us Rs. 6000/- for 4 of us for 2 nights and 3 days. One of the ways to cut on your taxi bill is to Hire taxi through an agent for local sight seeing. But point blank refuse agents for hiring taxi for Sarahan trip. Then Get same taxi fellow for Sarahan. Through agent you end up paying 15-25% extra which goes to agents pocket. On the way to Sarahan, you can also enjoy photo up sitting on a Yak. Avoid Kufri and Green valley during local trip. Both are is on the way to Sarahan. Have a nice trip to Sarahan.

It was a four star hotel. I visited there in off season. We were the sole customers in the hotel. I stayed there for 2 days. Warm water was not all time available. You are permitted only to use either geyser or room heater but not both at same time. Services are provided after asking. I had to take my food outside.
