“Bad staff ruined the stay...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2010

Where do I start :
- Bedsheets weren't clean
- Showers weren't functional (leaking)
- Service manager had a terrible attitude
- Food mediocre

This place might have been a great hotel at some time but bad management has ruined it. They haven't been able to preserve the heritage and on top of that their laid back & callous attitude makes me hate this place.

We ( my husband, me and 7 year old daughter )had gone on a 11 day trip to Shimla, Kullu , Manali from Mumbai. As the Himachal Tourism office mentioned this as one of their Premier properties, we decided to stay here. The location of this Hotel is excellent. Its way up, just near the Oberoi. It is also a very good looking hotel from the exterior with wood panelling and a great facade. The room however left us asking for more. Though very big and spacious, it was poorely maintained. The carpet was unclean and the chest drawers were broken. The bathroom also did not look very clean. The bed was comfortable, however the mattresses were not very clean. We stayed there for just about 2 days. The food was ok, nothing great, better to eat outside on mall road. The good part of the hotel is the geat view from the garden in front of it. Itwould be a great place to stay in if they maintain the rooms well

We booked this hotel for one day and next day we had to start for Kinnaur trip. It is one of the prime hotels under HPTDC chain. Comparing the price we paid, it was an OK experience. First we have been provided a dark, shabby room in one corner of the building..I complained and then they provided a better room. Rooms are spacious and have heating and other stuff. Only challenge is Shimla mall is far away from this hotel and you have to walk a long way to be there. Food was good. Overall experience was OK.

I liked the hotel from the historical point of view and area but I should admit that it is not very well maintained. The rooms are very spacious with a separate dresser and huge bathroom but they are not modern and cozy enough. The hotel is under Himachal tourism so probably one should not have very high expectations. Otherwise, they have huge gardens and banquets in the antique style which I quite liked. Just a little more furnishing and it will be superb.
