Positive Reviews

Excellent hospitality

Travellers overwhelmingly sang the praises of the personnel at reception, saying they were efficient, friendly and obliging. Guests were also impressed by the efforts of the housekeeping team. In the restaurant, reviewers commented that there was tasty food, good service and a decent amount of menu variety to tempt all palates.

Rooms with forest views won praise

There was praise from guests for the spacious, clean, comfy and well-maintained rooms. It appealed to guests that there were excellent forest and city views from the rooms, along with tasteful décor and good facilities.

Handy central location

Not only did guests like being close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants of Mall Road at this property, but they also appreciated the proximity of the bus stand and Shimla Railway Station.

Negative Reviews

Unreliable Wi-Fi network

The Wi-Fi network here was a disappointment to some reviewers. They complained of a patchy signal and sluggish speeds in certain corners of the building.

Some doubts about value for money

Bargain hunters occasionally felt they paid over the odds for a stay at this hotel as the nightly rates weren’t always the most competitive around. They also felt that some of the additional services on offer were slightly overpriced. Factors like the discovery of unsatisfactorily cleaned bedding only added to the feeling that guests weren’t getting enough bang for their buck.

Parking grumbles

There was negative sentiment among guests over the limited number of spaces offered in the car park. During the busiest periods at the hotel, the amount of spaces was reportedly insufficient to cater for all the guests who were driving.
