I wanted to stay away from the hustle bustle of the famed hill station and decided on staying in Fagu, a mere 30 kms away from the British summer capital. And I ended up in the HPTDC property which takes you back in the colonial era with huge corridors and high ceilings. Sip over a cup of coffee on the... More

The place is around 20kms away from Shimla and 5kms from Kufri, a small village named Fagu. The property is owned by HPTDC. By far one of the best HPTDC has to offer. The views are breathtaking. Cool, serene, surrounded by apple orchards, dense deodhar and pine trees, do not miss the sunrise and sunsets. Almost a 360 degree view... More

Had a very peaceful and pleasant stay. Excellent location and property. The rooms are well maintained with great view of the himalayan peaks. Food was also good. The staff were nice and friendly. A great option away from the congestion and crowds in Shimla. Recommend this hotel to travellers to Himachal.

It is a small but cozy hotel located outside the hustling and bustling of Shimla. If you are looking for a sophisticated place then it not a place for you. If you can ignore worn-out carpet with moss, can put up with average service and don't mind climbing flight of stairs to get to your room than you can choose... More

Location of Apple Blossom is outstanding. It gives you almost a 360 degree view of the valley and mountains. We stayed there during May first week in 2016. Although the valley were mostly in clouds the day we stayed, but we could certainly feel the beauty of the place. In a clear winter day, you will get a great view... More

Fagu is a ideal place to be for a relaxing holiday. The hotel Apple Blossom of HPDC is at excellent location and right on the national highway. There are lot of apple, potato farms around this place and hotel is surrounded by pine trees forest. Food cooked by local chef's at hotel is excellent in taste and not so costly.

Superb location, spacious rooms discount available online from July onwards. Minus points are- Very badly maintained rooms, not at all luxurious. 1 out of 5 for room. Room rent high. Food quality normal. Room service slow due to less staff. Only for peace loving people, wonderful scene from window no balcony available. Carry snacks & food items with you before... More
