A great experience with minor complaints

Located 3 kms off Shoghi from the Kalka- Shimla highway, the resort is a good place to chill away from the crowds and traffic of Shimla.
We booked an attic room and stayed for 2 days. The room was huge, clean and well furnished. The views from the room are amazing, enhanced by the wall to wall glass windows. You wake up with the mighty Himalayas in sight, which is an experience in itself.
The sitout would a perfect place to chill during summers, but was pretty much useless for us because of the cold gusty winds when we visited.
The food tastes good, but is ridiculously overpriced. So much so that we mostly preferred to eat out, whenever possible. The tea served here is crap. Warm water would taste better. Was a huge disappointment considering the cold weather and our general love for tea.
The staff is courteous, polite and accommodating. No complaints here. Although our room had an AC with heating (all attic rooms have 1), it was pretty incompetent in the extreme cold and we were provided an additional heater from the office on request promptly. Room service in general is quite prompt.
The hotel also provides services for booking cabs for local tours. They have tie ups with local operations at Shoghi, and this should generally be cheaper than booking a cab from Solan or Shimla.
One bad experience was that they had a bigger group visiting at the same time and an outdoor party was arranged for the group with very loud music which lasted almost 3 hours. Frankly, we hated this as the only reason for booking a place away from Shimla was to experience the peace and calmness.
Overall, a I would rate the experience between good and excellent. Would I like to visit again? Probably. But surely one can explore many other alternatives at the price vs services that they charge.

The Agoda website said the delux rooms had bathtub, but it was not there and also the staff were unprofessional when asked about it. The rooms were poorly maintained and the house keeping had to be called for each and every requirement. It is not worthstaying in this place 15 kms from Shimla ..... U might find better property in shimla
