Fabulous boutique hotel, fantastic staff, our loft room was charming and spacious and the hosts Anil Walia and his daughter Mannat could not have been more welcoming or considerate. They helped us get comfortable during record snowstorms and were constantly available and solicitous. It was hill hospitality at its finest . we will always be grateful for the memories

Mahasu House is the place to stay if you are visiting Mashobra. Away from the hustle & bustle of Shimla this is a cosy place nestled among beautiful mountains. Rooms are spacious& well maintained with all the facilities. The food was also great. The highlight was the service and the staff, who made us feel like we are staying at our home. All the staff members were very polite and waiting to serve the guests all the time. Here I would specially like to mention Lalit and Deep who were really helpful. Overall I would recommend that if you are in this area then stay at Mahasu House instead of staying in Shimla.

A long search for a cosy place landed us at Mahasu house in Mashobra. Nestled in the lap of nature, this is definitely a home away from home. Huge, spacious rooms with heaters and all that one can require for a comfortable stay has been provided. The local complimentary wine was a wonderful way to start our stay here. The meals were very tasty and piping hot, despite the temperature dipping to 1-2 degrees. The breakfast served at the patio under the winter sun amongst the chirping of the birds was memorable and hopefully we can repeat it again. The trek to the view point was splendid and we enjoyed every minute here. Wishing the team of Mahasu house a wonderful year ahead. And Amanat, thank you for the hospitality. Best wishes.

Me and my husband happened to reach this place by accident and it was one of the best stays we have had. The owners take personal interest in making you feel at home. You can get good prepared according to your personal choice. Also, it is pet friendly, so we ended up making a furry friend. Must visit! Highly recommended.

Can I give the experience 6/5???? Enjoyed every moment of my 4 day stay. The Staff were so very caring and courteous, the food so well cooked, presented perfectly, the ambience was exceptional!! Kudos to the team… cannot single out any one person…..Each was better than the other. For a family that ranged from 10 years to 75 , they tried to please each and all. A simple request …can plug points be more accessible?( The staff immediately provided us an extension cord) Thank you for this memorable experience will return some day… God willing!!
