A HPTDC hotel is "what the ad says" and thats why I rate this hotel "very good" . there are, generally, no unpleasant surprises.
we drove on our own to shimla and safe parking was necessary. though shimla has paid parking at various locations but within premises is certainly preferable and this hotel had the same in ample amount.
the rooms were comfortable, the linen clean and laundary service -well priced and efficient. we had booked DBR deluxe and for the tariff charged it was value for money.
for the lunch we had himachali food at the restaurant and were served with delicious sepu vadi and angoori chicken. the chinese for dinner was just about ok
no great views from our room but the other rooms, higher on the tariff, did seem to be well positioned.
the "Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Therapy" room is a poor man's spa. the staff was talented but the decor and ambiance was a let down. The combermere hotel nearby had better facilities and also - good restaurants
