We stayed here for our honeymoon in Feb, 2008. We booked a package online and reached the hotel with great expectation after reading rave reviews and hearing great comments. The location is nice and so is the lawn.
We reached late afternoon as it was snowing in Shimla and in the surroundings and we could not start as early as planned. We called the hotel to confirm that we were coming but didn't find anyone on our arrival. Literally had to search for the staff and when they saw us, they seemed most unhappy, probably as they were not expecting guests in that weather! They expressed their surprise by saying that road from Shimla was blocked due to snowfall and they didn't expect us at that time even though we had called.
Our room was ok but could have been better maintained. It was feeling damp and cold, however that was gone after the heating was kept on for sometime and view from the room was nice. We had Welcome Drink and Fruit Baskets included in our package but we were not presented those. We had to ask for the same after settling down and was then asked if we would like the welcome drink later! The next disappointment was when we found that the hotel does not serve non-veg. Well, it was mentioned in the website but we missed those small prints. Food was ok and we ate there only once even though breakfast and dinner was included in our package.
Next morning, we found the entire lawn covered with snow and it was a great pleasure to see the same. Overall, a nice place that could be great with service improvements and non veg food!
