The location is the biggest positive and the negative. If you just want to chill and relax on a hilltop with picturesque locales around, this is the place for you. There's not much to explore inside the resort though the amenities are decent enough. The tariffs are slightly on the higher side but this is the place to go during the season when you do not find any accommodation anywhere in Shimla.
The staff is good and courteous and the cottages/rooms are good.
The best thing is that you'd find a vacancy here even during the peak season when everything is full. In fact do not mistake the road to the Fagu top as a Horse Riding track :), just keep going on the rough track and you'd discover the resort at the top :)
