I had stayed in this hotel in the year 2014 in the month of November along with my friends for relaxation purpose. The hotel was conveniently located. The appearance of the hotel was well maintained and was good looking. The checking procedure was done on time and I faced no delay with it. The staffs were friendly and were responding to all our requests. The rooms were very well maintained and amenities at good condition as provided and I had a mountain view from the balcony of the room and was wonderful. Breakfast and dinner was given to us as complimentary and was good. Activities like swimming pool, gym and so on were available and were well maintained. Overall, it was comfortable for me to stay and I would recommend it to other travellers.

Resort was located near to the Mahindra resort. I did not face any problem regarding location. It was my package tour at Rs 13, 000 per person. Resort's service staff and manager were well behaved. AC, TV, Geyser and other room amenities were working properly. Room was fully furnished. Nice view was visible from the room's window. Food was arranged in buffet system and it was of nice variety and taste wise. Appearance of the resort was beautiful from interior and exterior. All outing and transport facility was organized by our travel agent. Check-in and check-out process was peaceful. Amount wise resort is affordable. Swimming pool or gym was not there but playground available. It was my family tour.
We were willing to spend a few days in calm and quiet place. I had been to Shimla 4 times earlier also and always stayed in proper city. But this time we chose for Koti Resort, Mashobra and we felt that our decision was good. The resort was in a calm and quiet place, the stay and food was good. However, maintenance of lawn was not up to desired level. You need your own conveyance for your commuting. The staff and front desk people were helping and courteous. Overall, a very good experience.
I went to Koti Resort back with my companions. One of my most important remain. Resort is very much found and astounding perspective. Staff is neighbourly and cooperative. We appreciated consistently the room was extremely agreeable. The breakfast is flavourful and the cook truly pleasant The resort is very much situated with a stunning perspective. They additionally have a lot of exercises that should be possible, for example, biking, badminton, and so forth. There's a delightful forested land close to the Resort where you can go for strolls. The staff was extremely cheerful and supportive with exercises to be finished. Much thanks to you such a great amount for a radiant outing, we do would like to come back again soon.
