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.
