We stayed at the Oberoi for 3 nights and spent a significant amount of time in the Restaurant which is the al day dining restaurant Special mention to chef Rajkumar Bhatia who was wonderful and provided exceptional service and personally took care of all our...requests. Do try the Primavera pizza, Cream of Tomato soup and Fried rice. In addition, the entire FnB team led by Ashutosh and consisting of Aanchal, Sanjana, Shreyoshree, Jovian,Abhishek Rohan, Rohit, Kartik,Sahil ensured 5 star quality service and fulfiled each of our requests however trivial. The ambience is brilliant and takes you back to another era since this was the place where the ballroom dances used to happen. The window-side tables provide a beautiful view of the Shimla valley and Cart Road. This is a must visit place in Shimla!More

Everyone says one can't enjoy holidays if Hospitality of Hotel Staff is compromised. That's only 50% correct. Taste of food, coupled with service, as if you are the Chief Guest, makes your holidays memorable. I have travelled world over and is foodie, but can't remember...if had ever had such high quality food with personalize love & affection of Mr Raj Kumar Bhatia. My wife even told me, before planning next travel to Shimla, must check, if Mr R K Bhatia is available or not. if he is on leave, we will change our travel dates. GOD Bless himMore

I went there just to have lunch this time as it was my short trip to Shimla. But Oberoi Cecil Shimla is always the best and I feel so nostalgic whenever I visit this hotel. Staff is so professional and trained and they are always...ready to help you. Food was excellent so be their homemade cookies. Kudos to chefs. Perfect location, beautiful property , wonderful staff. That’s what Oberoi’s known for! Kudos to team Oberoi Cecil.More
