Positive Reviews

Room with a superb view

The most positive memory you'll take away from your stay here is no-doubt the view from your bedroom. Guests say that it is amazing. Although less thrilling, guests are also quite pleased with the good size of the rooms.

Courteous staff

Guests often point out that the staff really try their best to be helpful and friendly. The staff is typically described as polite and keen to help.

Good variety of food

The food in the restaurant is relatively popular, for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. There is a wide choice of good standard Indian and international dishes.

Negative Reviews

Questionable value for money

Guests often leave this hotel feeling disappointed, having expected more for their money than they received. They feel that the rooms are pretty basic for a start with poor amenities and limited hot water. Guests are also amazed that they often have to ask for standard things like towels and that bottled water is not included in the relatively steep rate. To top things off, if the room is a bit chilly, you'll even have to pay extra for the privilege of using a room heater.

Too far from the Mall

The big attraction for most guests is Shimla Mall. This is where everything is happening, yet they are left stranded in a remote location, several kilometres away. If you do not have transport, you'll have to have a sizeable taxi budget to be able to make regular excursions there as the rates are pretty high.

Poor maintenance

Guests feel that the hotel and its facilities could be better looked after. The furniture is a bit old and the place is looking a bit tatty.
