An OK hotel
on Oct 25, 2017
The hotel stay was average and not that great of an experience. The rooms were clean but small. The services were delayed a little. The staff were friendly though. The food provided was good. Could have been better.
Alert for guest

Bad hotel. Don't go or else you will regret. Hotel staff was cold,not approachable. In room dining quality not good and prices are expensive. Only because place is away from everywhere. I had to take admission in IHM over there, but I regret staying over that place.
Great place within the pines
on Aug 8, 2016
Visited this place in August in monsoons(which added the beauty due to lots of scattered and unscattered clouds with a bit of drizzle). It was an unofficial trip with my work pals. The place is located at a great place, far from hustle bustle of Shimla(which i absolutely hate). The view is great from the cottage is took, which is located behind the hotel and offers a great view of the valley. Cottage number 1 comes with a small lawn, which needs lot of maintenance(which was not done). The person who catered us for the stay, was helpful in ensuring that we are comfortable and ensured that we are not short of anything while we were having a bit of social party :). The food was just OK. All in all, a great place to stay if you don't like noisy conventional hill stations. Choose this one if you have great company and wants some place within the pines with great view.
Secluded hotel in the woods
on Jul 9, 2016
Secluded. very far from the city center. If you are planning to make a quick tour of Shimla, this is the poorest choice. You are all alone in the woods including the family of monkeys which may steal your belongings. Theres no restaurant in sight. very few guests around. This might be best for family tour with own car. Forget it if you are a backpacking. The service is ok, the staffs are helpful. the food is generic-the usual North Indian fare-dal, mixed vegetables, chapati, rice, with occasional chicken curry. The dining hall is in the 3rd floor of the building. Our cottage is separate from the main building with nice view of the mountains below. The blankets of our room looks like they are never washed after every guest.
Decent Budget stay
on Feb 1, 2016
The rooms were decent - nothing special. The staff was friendly. There are no places to eat in the vicinity, so you have to use the in-house restaurant/room service. The food is decent enough.
The hotel is about 5-6 kms from shimla city, so you can't manage without your own vehicle or a taxi.
