My stay at the hotel was exceptional, highlighted by the staff's outstanding behavior, their warm and professional service made me feel right at home. Nestled in a prime location, it offered easy access to local attractions, enhancing my experience. The room was not only clean and comfortable but also boasted stunning views from the window, adding a special touch to my visit. The combination of courteous staff, strategic location, impeccable cleanliness, and breathtaking views truly set this hotel apart. I highly recommend it for a memorable and enjoyable stay.

We stayed at Hill Crest in March 2021 this year and it was overall a good experience.
The hotel is about 40-45 mins drive from Shimla and it is a scenic drive. We had booked three rooms for two nights.
The rooms are good and offer good views too. Washrooms are big.
Treated with Warm welcome even though it's early check-in. They instantly provided us the room with no extra cost and without any request.
One area of improvement is the service at restaurant. We were served cold breakfast and repeat menu in breakfast and dinner.

Apart from that, it was a smooth and pleasant stay.

Hotel staff is cordial and attentive.
Special Thanks to Mr. Suneet, who was the first person we interacted face to face.

and also to Mr. Parveen and Mr. Nitin who were like always in wait to help the guests.

Feel free to consider Mr. Parveen and Mr. Nitin as your local guide to plan your trip like where & how to visit.

Overall, the property is neat and clean.

Will recommend this if you plan to stay in Mashobra or somewhere on the outskirts of Shimla.

You will never get food on time.

You will order tea at 8 am and tea will reach you at 11 am and they will ask you to be patient

Starters will reach you after main course.

Forget that housekeeping will come and clean your room

Dont expect any support from hotel manager, she will create more problems for you. She is the most negligent and arrogant lady you will find in hospitality industry.

Worst experience, DO NOT VISIT

It was a terrible experience.

1. No covid protocols followed. The dining area was very dirty. They cleaned dining tables with brooms. The waiter was wearing same shirt for 2 days which had gone black on hand and neck.
2. There is no room service, housekeeping service. we had to take towels, water bottles and toiletries self from the store. Even the lift also is congested meant for 2 people and you have to go upto 4th floor by stairs only. The main gate of hotel is to be opened by self as there is no guard. They always say please manage. Also, iron and hair dryer upon repeated request were given on sharing basis with other room and was told Please manage even when they were part of our booking.
3. The hotel is highly unsafe considering that it is not in the main district and if any mishap happens then you are alone to deal with it. We were manhandled by the owner and his son and were threatened to be thrown out. They were drunk. We were very terrified the entire night. They kept drinking with 10-12 others in the open till 2am and while drinking they kept shouting at our room window thus creating lot of terror. I am sharing photos of bruises on my hand.
4. We checked out the next morning even we had booking till next day.

This hotel is not at all recommended. There is no system, no management and safety risk too. We noticed other guest also complaining about various similar issues whenever we passed through the lobby...

first of all the services, rooms, food everything is pathetic, rooms are ultra noisy, no hygiene no sanitisation, no services overall you will get nothing but the high amount of dissatisfaction and disappointment from the hotel.
Secondly the old man and his son who claim themselves to be owners are actually goons who drink and create nuisance for guests and fight with them. They have no respect for their guests.

Very poorly managed. At the time of covid, no one, LITERALLY NO ONE wearing mask, and even on asking, they replied we are working sir and it is very difficult to wear mask while working. Even the owner of the hotel, who was old person also mot wearing, and kept on refusing the same. This shows what kinda sanitisation and hygiene they will maintain.

Apart from covid precautions, food was pathetic and pathetic. Buffet is worst to order and definitely the worst of Shimla, however a la carte and room prdering food was good. This shows hlw they cheating customer on prepaid orders.

Only One Pros:
Only the good things were the rooms, they were big enough and lighted. Surrounded area was nice.

Starting from Al aCarte you would never receive your order even after multiple phone calls .

Restaurant manager seems to have an attitude issue , she is over qualified for her job and has no sense at all of talking or addressing the guest .

Very unique way of serving meals Starter are served after main course.

Not at all a recommended property avoid doing any bookings .

One good thing Electician Mohan Lal is the only guy in the hotel who deserves a promotion from electrician to Hotel Manager , great guy with great sense of hospitality

( AVOID THIS HOTEL )

Great stay experience and good food. Definitely a place to stay if looking for options away from Shimla. Great customer service with prompt response by the management whenever needed.
We stayed at the luxury camps which was quite comfortable with clean washroom and easy accessibility to hot water.

Its a nice hotel. Staff is gud. I am
Here with group and my experience was gud. I can’t say excellent like Manali (same owner property in Manali - woh factor).

Some alarms here like: Old type lift, No balconies so u can’t smoke inside the rooms, Small room size and distance from main town.

But also have plus point:
1. Staff - Mr. Mark and Ms Mona always ready for your help.

2. Scenic view close to property.

3. Yummy Gulab Jamun.

4. Cooperative kitchen team.

Thanks to everyone for caring our group.
