Located up a hill away from traffic, overlooking Himalayas; basic rooms ; helpful staff; interesting fellow guests; close to pedestrian mall. Perhaps 10-minute walk from train station; excellent trout and other dishes. Only negative: failed to pick us up at statin, despite arrangements made before our trip.

Very difficult to find the place. The lodge was supposed to be an high level hotel, but in realty it wasn't at all.. The receptionist (I think the owner too) was ok, but not very welcoming. He hasn't done nothing to make our staying better or nicer. Actually, during the dinner he was pushing us to finish our meal and tea..keep on asking us if we had finished to eat and to drink a billion time, and, trust me, it wasn't late (when u travel around India u just want to go bed early)! Moreover, the shower was out of order and we couldn't wash ourselves..no way to change room or to have a discount. The owner has just said that he would fix it. ..and I cannot forget to say the the price of the room was extremely expensive. I wouldn't suggest The Spars Lodge as a nice hotel where to

We decided to stay here as it's a little way out of the main part of Shimla, so is very peaceful (although be warned of the steep hill to get to it! Good exercise though :)) The price was a little higher than expected, but we went for it anyway as we had arrived from an overnight bus at 6am in the morning and the manager was kind enough to let us stay there until a room was ready. The rooms are clean and airy, although the shower in our first room offered no more than a dribble. We had to change rooms while we were there to a more expensive one, which in hindsight I don't think we should have had to pay more as we weren't informed of this when we originally booked our 3 nights. However we did have a working shower in the second room! The restaurant upstairs has a lovely homely

What can we say about the lovely stay. We went there late night with minimum expectations not sure about the hotel. However,it was just the way we wanted it. Cozy,picturesque view from glass window. Outstanding service and clean hygienic food. It was just a feeling of being in a beautiful quaint house.

I got to shimla and taken away with a hotel tout as soon as I arrived the place he took me was alright for 1000 rps but left because of noise , I decided to head to spars lodge because of lonely planet I checked out the rooms which I thought were extremely overpriced but I took one anyway(1700) a big let down was the shower didn't work but I did get a good sleep with no noise , he also booked me a taxi which was helpful ! I couldn't be bothered finding another place . I also ate there and the curry was well below average no atmosphere in the restaurant , although the views are stunning the place isn't worth how much they charge .
