It was a nice stay as we booked this hotel on the same day online in our budget and room was spacious and clean though paint and certain other things seemed to be old and they need maintenance. It is not good as a resort but as a hotel, it is nice.

We were lucky to get this property on peak tourist days at Shimla. The property is located little away from Shimla town. But there is frequent bus connectivity and no travel...
