It's a beautiful quite place to relax. The rooms are less but nicely done up. It gives a very cozy and comfortable stay with really yummy and healthy food which is pretty much in budget. The terrace lounge is awesome to relax and enjoy with family and friends.
Spars Lodge is located is a calm and quiet place near the Prasar Bharti Doordarshan Set-up in Shimla and just in front of ITBP Headquarters. There is no parking available in hotel as the hotel itself is very small with hardly 4-5 rooms available. The place is quiet, offers picturesque view and away from the main busy road of Shimla. But the Hotel itself has very less to offer. The rooms are basic but neat and clean. There is no Breakfast buffet and the direct pricing of hotel is very high which do not justifies the stay in any aspect. Though one can chose to book from travel websites at one third of the prices. Its okay in terms of a short stay. One will face hardship in parking the car nearby.
My husband and i stayed at spars lodge for 4 nights. It is situated a 2km walk from town. Don't let that put you off however. It meant it was quiet and relaxing. Shimla doesnt allow cars along the main road so the walk into town is also hassle free and incredibly pretty. The lodge itself was like an alpine lodge. The views from our room were stunning and the restaurant was great. Very friendly owners. It felt like a home away from home.
They served steamed and smoked trout fish with garlic sauce . A quiet eating joint far from hubbub of crowded mall of Shimla , Spars Lodge Chaura Maidan within museum premises greets you with its little cozy casual ambiance. very good food being cooked under professional supervision . Those who prefer a little different way of relaxation with books and beautiful view of mountains and valley would definitely love this place. They take little more time to serve food but their serene atmosphere compensates.
The best thing about Spars Lodge is there food quality. Their Trout fish preparation was awesome. It is a old fashioned wooden hotel. Not so far from Mall road. Staffs are really cooperative. It was our first night stay of our 13 days long Spiti trip and they have set the tune for our journey perfectly. We were alloted a valley facing room. Which gave us a splendid view of the valley. Toilets were clean. Rooms were perfectly arranged. Their restaurant area also has a very good view of the valley. I will highly recommend this place.
