The staff is arrogant and completely non welcoming. Their attitude stinks and they’re rude to talk to the clients. Food is definitely pathetic. I’m usually liberal about my views for the properties where I stay but the stay in Orchid , Shimla was horrible.

We stayed at orchid hotel for 3 nights. Hotel is located centrally in Shimla to visit mall road, kufri etc. We had nothing but excellent experience starting from check in, prompt room service, food and hospitality. They also upgraded us for free to a room with the view (see attached picture). We had various dietary restrictions(Jain food, eggless desserts etc) amongst 10 people in our family. The staff was very patient and welcoming to accept and service all our requests with top standards. Executive chef Mr. Sulabh Joshi went above and beyond to fulfill our requests. I would also like to acknowledge hospitality staff - Ms Bhawna, Mr. Nishant and Mr. Manoj who serviced our plenty of requests with smiling face. Hospitality industry is tough as you deal with various types of customers. Orchid at Shimla met my expectations well beyond what I had hoped for. I would strongly recommend staying at Orchid and would definitely come back. We also met Mr. Vithal Kamat (owner of Orchid hotel). He was visiting and talking to every customer at the breakfast table and collecting feedback. This is was very humbling from a person of that influence.

First and foremost I will like to thank Miss Rekha ji, the House keeping head for taking extra care of my family. I have no words to describe my experience. It was awesome. The chef suraj is simply brilliant. In our 3 days visit, there was never a repetition of menu. Food, room, valley View from room, pool, Cleanliness, house keeping. It's a 5star experience truly.
