It's an iPhone 7 but without iOS!! This property is full of contradictions!! Amazing location but congested layout! Attention to detail (every room is unique) but pits when it comes to service! Cozy rooms but commode may protest to flush! Great food taste but inflexible attitude (no a la carte) Worse of all is the front desk - finding ways...

It was a wonderful stay. Would definitely like to visit in winters while it's snowing! It was a wonderful experience. I went to Shimla for the first time , I had a booking somewhere else but i was too worried as I did not like the location. However, I ultimately found the best location and will definitely come here again...

The location is the only saving grace for this property, We were promised free facilities at the time of online booking. I was travelling with my 9 yr old daughter. Feel cheated. Every service in room is charged Rs. 100. Eg. If you order tea in addition to cost you end up paying extra Rs. 100 every time you summon...

Trust me, you do not want to go here! Except for the fact that it's 9000feet above the ground, there is nothing, i insist, nothing that you will like or for that matter, even tolerate. Their description on the website is deceiving and false. Right from the distance from shimla to their photos of the rooms, it's all a scam....

- Very good location, situated on a hill top with great views. There are a couple of small jungle trails for walking closeby - Good property - Decent food quality (although this is a matter of personal liking). - Run down property however as it is poorly maintained. Looks far better in photographs than in reality. - Very poor service...
