We stayed at Koti over the long Independence day weekend. It was a pleasant and relaxed break ... the property is situated some 20 km further ahead from Shimla and so is very peaceful and far from the crowds. The hills were a lovley lush green thanks to the rains and low clouds were floating by making the surroundings beautiful. The hotel's location is nice and picturesque with good views from the rooms. We stayed in the premier rooms which were very spacious. On the positives, the room was nice and the bathrooms were very clean and modern. They seem to have a good chef although the menu was largely basic, the food (Indian) was very tasty! The staff was quite helpful and would get us our food in the room if we could not go to the restaurant as it was cold and raining and we were travelling with an infant. On the flip side however, the resort needs much better maintenance. The property has a run down appearance with broken window panes in common areas not fixed and discarded furniture dumped in the grounds in open view. The curtain rods came down in our room and the bathroom jacuzzis did not work (as another reviewer mentioned, it is a bad idea to have them in the first place!). It looks as though this property was started off very nicely several years ago but not much money is being pumped back in to keep it up nicely ... that's a pity as it is a pretty little place!
