It was a brilliant stay at the hotel, with some really good staff and people to chat with. Thank you for your exceptional housekeeping. We had some wonderful meals, and company to go with that. There was really good wifi connection in the basement. I enjoyed the great weather up in the hills with my family members. Cheers and all the very best for the coming ventures!

Excellent Property and very well managed, place is for those who want to relax from the hustle bustle of their running schedule. Food and Hospitality is very good, if someone wants to visit Mall Road then it’s 15 min drive from the hotel. Morning walks are bit chilli as area is covered with lush green pine trees and humming of birds in morning makes one forget everything.

Came back after a 3nts stay at this beautiful private residence property of Mr Suri. Went with family and loved every bit of my time spent in Shimla, away from the crowds and chaos of the extremely packed mall road. Mall is about 30mins walk or take a quick 5 min taxi worth 200/- and get dropped at lakkar bazaar. Go to this place for peace and quaintness, do a trek in the nearby forest, get up to the chirping birds and spend the days peacefully. The cooks make some great food so don't worry about your meals but please be mindful that it's a place to spend some quality time and not for loud/noisy evenings which can even damage the experience of someone who's genuinely looking for a serene stay. The host Mr Suri is fantastic and an accomplished personality, will give you the history of the place as well. Don't sweat over the slowness of the place as that's quite normal in all the hills. Do make sure you get the exact directions from Mr Suri so you don't get troubled on the way. Staff is friendly and you'll know them all by their names once you're there. Carry a stick when you're out on the walks and you'll be all fine. Have a good, exclusive and secluded stay.

Groom bridge came to me as a very pleasant surprise. Mrs. Suri’s warm presence and Mr. Vijay Suri’s brilliant company only makes the stay better. The rooms are very beautifully decorated with a mesmerising view to wake up to. The estate’s tour with Mr. Suri was the highlight for me. I thank Groombridge for their hospitality. Also, special thanks to Pankaj for being so delightful and serving us with a smiling face. I look forward to visiting again very soon!

We stayed at this place and Dr. Suri really made sure we were comfortable. The rooms are very beautifully designed. The patio area opens up to beautiful view of Shimla. It is just 15 minutes away from the center. For anyone looking for a gateway to Shimla but in a quietly located neighborhood. This place is highly recommended.

I have been visiting Shimla every since I was a boy. But this trip was the best ever. We met Vijay uncle. (See the pic).Vijay uncle who owns and runs Groombridge is the most gracious host you can ever come across. We spent all evenings chatting with him, listening to his stories and seeing amazing pictures he has clicked. He is a foodie and makes sure by the end of the trip you become one too... thank you Vijay uncle for making our trip and stay so special.
