Hotel's Favourite
Visited this property with my family, located right in the heart of Shimla. I stayed in Orchid Suite which had a beautiful scenic view of the valley. The room had a jacuzzi and steam bath cabin giving a full luxurious vibe. They have a buffet restaurant ( breakfast, lunch & dinner) and a rooftop cafe serving some amazing delicacies, they have lots of variety in the menu. I tried northindian & chinese cuisine. Loved the authentic himachali delicacies curated by chef. The hotel has a kids play area and a well equipped gym too. The staff is very polite and courteous, they made sure we had a comfortable stay. A special mention for Mr. Rohit & Mr. Rupesh for the wonderful hospitality.

We stayed at The Orchid during our vacation in Shimla in the last week of October. To be honest it was an absolutely splendid stay at The Orchid. Not only was the staff friendly and hospitable but the Chefs at the restaurant were absolute masters of their craft as well. I want to make a special mention of Mahinder Rawat (Gener Manager), Ganesh Singh (Assistant Restaurant Manager), Sulabh Joshi (Executive Chef), Upendra (Sous Chef), Sunny Sharma (Chef de Partie) and Karanveer (Chef) for making our vacation that much more special and memorable!
