“A GRAND OLD HOTEL IN RUINS!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

This is a Himachal Pradesh Tourism property! And as most Govt properties tend to be, it has a great view but is poorly maintained! The rooms are large but very shabby! We had two extrabeds in the room which looked like something out of the second world war! The Hotel is badly in need of repair. The service is fairly good, and the food had nothing to complain about. We were there for 2 days for a wedding! The wedding in the lawn was a good affair and nothing to complain about!

The Hotel plan is wierd in general, and the decor very tacky!

We recently stayed in this hotel for our 2 day trip to Shimla. We being a group of guys were more interested in a cheap hotel giving us the basics. But we were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The rooms were great for the price tag and the food was reasonably priced yet quite good. The only problem we encountered was that its location made our driver lose a hair or two as it was situated in a no entry area and he would fret every time we left or entered the hotel. The staff was mostly courteous except for a room service person who fretted when we ordered in fragments rather than ordering everything together. A word of advice to those intending to stay with one extra person in the double room make up your mind to sleep on a mattress on the floor as no cots are provided. Otherwise it is an excellent hotel giving you much more than you bargain for.

This is the ideal hotel for those who want to stay away from the maddening crowds at mall road. The hotel is situated in a quiet area with lovely hill views all around it. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is not newly built but very well maintained.
A special word for their service and food as it is a class apart.
They have huge lawns where you can just lie down and enjoy the lovely views.
It is maintained by HP tourism and you can get a good deal during off season.
Ask for their family suite( 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room and a bathroom that is as big as the bedroom.)
