“old world charm!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

We had to look for the stewards and wait for the service...but the place itself is so lovely, that u overlook most of the other faults...and just indulge in the old world charm and luxury of the place...!!! we enjoyed our lunch and the Indian food was awesome..

“The Jewel in the Crown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

When Simla was the summer capital of India, then Cecil should have been the Viceroy's abode. Well for the ones in love with the Raj, Cecil maintains its class, individuality and exquisite appeal. The hotel transcends you back to the era gone by. The lunch at the restaurant was good. Excellent service coupled with great accompaniments (great offerings from the bakery). Only the main course could have been better; lets understand, it is hard to improve perfection.

“refreshment at the Cecil”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

while in Shimla we visited the Cecil just for a snack in the lounge. Terrible service and very noisy with children running around on the balconies above.

“Gorgeous scones and tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

We went to the Oberoi for afternoon tea after visiting the Viceregal lodge. Although not one of their most beautiful properties the Oberoi was lovely with a big atrium. The staff were wonderful and their scones and cream were lovely as well as the delicious tea, we weren't staying at the hotel and they were happy to let us use the restaurant, even if you're not staying here go for afternoon tea
