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.

Groombridge is a British Era heritage property run by Vijay Suri who is very much at home in the mountains and the old-world charm of the place. Each room is distinct- with a different flower as a theme for every room. All rooms are well lit and ventilated with stunning nine views. Sunsets are not be missed. The highlight of our stay is the evenings spent with Vijay treating us to scrumptious barbecues and regaling us with stories about his house and the area.
