We stayed here from 22nd Jan. 2024 to 26th Jan. 2024 on occassion of 11th Anniversary of our Son and Daughter in law. Right from initial booking till we checked out, entire experience was very friendly, polite and transperant. Especially Dinning Hall staff entertained our kids very well. We wanted to arrange for surprise celebration of our Son and Daughter in law in very short notice. Technical person *Mr Rajesh* exdended his best support even after his duty hours. He made occassion life time memorable for our son and daughter in law. We firmly recommend this property at Shimla for plesent stay. Especially we are very much thankful to *Ms. Minu, Mr. Nihal, Mr. Amit and Mr. Rajesh* for their prompt and friendly response.

We all stay on 24 th dec 23. Royal Deluxe room are very narrow. Services are poor all over. Rooms are not that clean including bathroom. No service provided in dining area. Very less menu available at dinner. Even they don't serve water. Limited quantity of food if u asked about some food then they told that now this item is finished u can have only now available. Even don't bother to give service. Overall a poor experience. Tips: rooms are very small ...and no good facilities available..... although food is good in taste.

We stayed here for one night and the experience was not great. Room washbasin was leaking, bathroom was not cleaned, towels were dirty. We stayed at floor 4. We also went to see rooms at first floor, they were even worse with smell of seepage. Breakfast quality was average. Walk to Mall Road is quite steep and more than 1 km. Not preferable with kids.
