Sunnymead Estate Shimla has been my personal favourite to stay whenever I am in Shimla. Madhavi Bhatia takes such personal care and the rooms are so well done & the food is just outstanding. It feels home in the hills of the Shivaliks. I can't wait to come back to this beautiful house. Thank you once again Madhavi for the personal touch every time I am at your beautiful abode.

We ringed in the new year at Sunnymead Estate and in total spent six nights at this amazing place. Our stay at Sunnymead was just fantastic. Let me start with the house . The house is absolutely beautiful heritage property and has a rustic charm about it. The rooms were clean , comfortable and the electric blankets and heaters provided good comfort in the icy cold December weather of Shimla . The property is taken care of by Madhavi , who is the owner of the place . Madhavi is a wonderful host who ensures that our stay was comfortable. We had some very thoroughly enjoyable meal time conversations. Though Sunnymead is a bed and breakfast joint , on request you can dine in for lunch and breakfast. Madhavi and her cook Madhu whips up some fantastic dishes . Continental and Indian food is the speciality and the quality is way better than even five star restaurants . Deepak , another one of Madhavi’s staff, very silently takes care of housekeeping needs . The property also has 3 dogs and a cat, all of them very adorable and all of us , especially my children had great fun with them . Overall we had a great experience and we look forward to our next visit . Thankyou “Team Sunnymead “ for making our stay memorable!

This little hidden gem of a place, situated (ironically) super close to the Shimla Mall market, is the perfect getaway for anyone! Madhavi aunty is not just the most fun host, but takes pride in cooking and baking the yummiest food. From breakfast to dinner, we were somehow always full but waiting for more. The 3 puppers were the sweetest and gave us company for the 2 days we were there. Overall, the place is beautiful and is filled with books on books on books. Can’t wait to re-visit ❤️

The home itself is gorgeous, with cosy bedrooms and a lovely garden full of flowers and trees. The host is incredibly hospitable and warm and did everything to make sure we had a comfortable, enjoyable stay. And I shouldn't fail to mention the food, which was also top notch. Overall, a five-star experience. You'll love it if you're into charming, old-fashioned properties with lots of books and interesting stories.

Sunnymead is a beautifully restored heritage home in Shimla. It is the perfect place to unwind if you are looking for a calm, peaceful, offbeat and luxurious getaway; away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. The host is a darling and was so warm and welcoming. I just fell in love with the details of the house - every corner, every little object is so so pretty! The food, made by the in-house chefs is scrumptious, and the desserts are to die for - I can still taste the freshly baked choco chip/banana muffins and the upside-down chocolate pudding!! Added to that, the host owns 3 pet dogs who are nothing short of adorable. I never knew my affection for dogs before my visit here. All in all, would highly recommend this place!! I cannot wait to go back there myself!!!
