I had a great stay in Spars Lodge! Staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere was very good too. They served delicious food and rooms are clean and cozy. The price is really reasonable and I will definitely go back there on my next visit to Shimla!
This place is a nice homestay. I actually visited their restourant because of the attraction of smoked trout. It is little off route from the hustle bustle of the city center. But the mall is not far hardly a half an hour walk from this place. What you can expect from this place is a very cozy place to stay and spend time. They have a small library with fairly nice books. The owner's company is definitely a nice little touch to add.
I had one of the most relaxing and lovely trips of my life, and staying at Spars Lodge was a very big part of it. The decor is simple and elegant, and the rooms were very comfortable. The whole hotel is pervaded by the most beautiful pinewood-y smell. Service was excellent and the manager was efficient, helpful and very pleasant. The kitchen was FANTASTIC. I really looked forward to breakfast every morning, especially because the lounge has the most incredible view over the hills. The best and worst aspect is the location - it's on top of a hill that is incredibly steep and difficult, but it's in a very charming and peaceful part of the town, away from the crowds. Would stay here again if I came to Shimla.
a silent wooden lodge away from the main drag, Spars is the right place to stay in clean, bright rooms with delicious hone-cooked food. I only didn't like the tv on all the time in the dining room-lodge.
We 3 girls booked Spars Lodge on the Pay at hotel module. The room which we booked was for 2 adults double bedroom which before booking was confirmed by the hotel that 3 people could comfortably stay. Upon reaching the first thing we were told was that for 3rd person there would be extra charges. Somehow we considered it, the next thing we got was a room with backyard view, no mirror and no fan. The lighting in the bathroom was too dim and best thing the landline didn't work half of time because of which we had to climb upstairs every time we wanted some service. We choose this hotel upon reviews on various sites, which didn't work in our favor.
