Bhupinder from Shimla, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 1/5 Service Quality: 1/5 Dining Quality: 1/5 Cleanliness: 1/5

When I went to check-in at the hotel, it was in the worst of its conditions. Me, being an outsider to Shimla, went in with the ratings and reviews provided on your site and trusting it, but the hotel was no where even close to what was mentioned on your site. The hotel room was filthy with dirty linens and carpets and stinky stuff. Besides it was full of insects, garbage on the floors, feathers were out of the bedding. To top all this the hotel staff was not at all cordial, when we checked for this, all they said was this is how we will find status of all the rooms. I called your customer representative from the hotel itself, and they said they would check as to what they can do. I did not even check-in at the hotel. Since, I went with my family, the only way out I could see was to leave the hotel and look for other option which was being looked up by your customer care representative. There onwards, I made several calls to your customer care hoping they would provide us with some solution. Apparently, your customer care representative believed the hotel guys and did not trust us. I already told the customer care representative about to cancel the booking or adjust the amount in some other hotel. Neither the amount was refunded nor adjusted. The customer care representative (Prashant/Vinayak) told that they will help us regarding this. But, no help came and we had to return back to Chandigarh. I expected that what has been shown on the website i will get the same since travelguru is quite trusted brand. But, travelguru could not help and had to return back since i was with females and children, could not compromise security in an unkonwn city at night. Kindly request you to look into the matter ASAP and refund my amount immediately, this is complete harassment for me.

Tirender from Shimla, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 5/5 Service Quality: 5/5 Dining Quality: 3/5 Cleanliness: 5/5

* The hotel is located in one of the most scenic places. It is on a forty minutes drive from Shimla to Kufri. The location is beautiful. * The place is well kept and maintained even though it is not visited often. The reason may be that the hotel is forty minutes drive away from mainland shimla and it becomes quite difficult to manage your commute in the night since it's a remote location. It takes Rs. 500 to travel from hotel to Shimla mall road via cab. * The staff is polite and helpful and go out of the way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. Extremely comfortable. However, the food was atrociously expensive and not really up to the value asked for. * However, since the hotel is way out of the way from mainland Shimla and not visited often, I would recommend the place to only groups. Also, I think since you spend so much money commuting from hotel to Shimla, the prices of the hotel should be cheaper.

Binu Peter from Shimla, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 4/5 Service Quality: 4/5 Dining Quality: 4/5 Cleanliness: 4/5

We had a wonderful experience in this place. The location was just the way i needed it to be i.e away from the city. It was very calm & peaceful. The bonfire in the evening was an exciting event too. Apart from this the room service & the food served were fantastic as well. Definitely an above average property.

Don't go to this hotel ever Don't go to this hotel ever

by JainShipra on March 17, 2017

I travelled to this resort with my family. The stay was no less than a nightmare. I have never seen any owner as uncourteous and as rude as him. He has no etiquettes and don't even know how to treat humans (forget about customers). There was no warm water in the hotel. There were rats in our toilet. We were so scared of them and complained to the front desk but they did nothing about it. The room and toilet was extremely unhygienic. There was fungus on the carpet, sofa, washbasin.. almost everywhere. The food is bad and tasteless. Again no hygiene in the preparation of food. And when we complained about this to the owner, he totally refused to do anything about it. We booked 3 nights there and after one day only, we asked him to refund our deposit. He declined and misbehaved with my parents. When we said that we will write bad reviews, he said who cares about the reviews. My hotel doesn't run on such useless things. Perhaps he is totally unaware about the power of words. I will never recommend anyone to go to this hotel.

The Resort is excellent. Great view from the Room. The service was great. The food was good. The ambience was also excellent. My Family loved the hotel. They had also arranged a Bonfire, as it was a lot cold Out side.

Just check out fromthe hotel in the middle of 3 feet snow. No power in entire town of Shimla and most roads are blocked due to heavy snow. Now some details about our stay. It took us 2 hours to travel last 15 km to the hotel due to snow in Shimla last week. On reaching thankfully the hotel has power back up. The car could not climb upto the hotel due to ice but the staff carried our heavy luggage for 400mtrs. The room was ready and thankfully Surya provided us with travel directions to reach safely and did not mind as we called alteast 100 times till 1 am. The staff provided hot food at 1 am along with hot water for drinking. Obviously there was no hot water for bathing in such -8 degree temperature and only generator power available but we did not mind as room was clean bedding was fresh and we got extra blankets to keep us warm. Mornign was bright and the view was stunning. We made snow statue in the garden and got hot breakfast served. Even hot water was provided by buckets to each room. There were atleast 50-60 people in the hotel and we noticed that the staff carried bucket after bucket of hot water to each room. We played in the snow and then went out and were guided properly. Unfortunately becasue of heavy traffic due to snow we cancelled main shimla sightseeing and went for hot water springs as informed by Mr Krishna. Onlycomplaint with the hotel is that they shoul dkeep some 4x4 vehicle for tourist stuck in snow as some visitors had problem taking their car from parking but the staff helped in clearing the snow manually and Mr Krishan himself drove each car on snow by riskin ghis life so that people coul dbe rescued. I recommend the hotel to all.

The worst resort ever The worst resort ever

by Abhijit M on December 23, 2016

This is the worst resort ever which has horrible staff and offers a terrible experience. The food is lousy. The resort is situated at a remote area of 20 kms away from the town inside a jungle. Pathetic service. Worst untidy rooms. Overall a nightmare to visit there again.

Average experience,Very Poor hospitality. Average experience,Very Poor hospitality.

I stayed here from 10-Dec-16 to 13-Dec-16 as part of my vacation to Shimla. Good Points: 1) Located in a calm location 40 min drive away from crowded shimla. 2) Good view from room. 3) Soups provided for dinner were mind blowing for the chill weather. Area that needs serious attention: 1) Staff to have touch of hospitality from front end reception to kitchen to justify as a resort. During my stay i have witnessed they had ill treated 3-4 guests for xyz reason. I found only room boys to be courteous. 2) Drivers are not provided with Lunch and place to stay which most of the hotels do. As its a place with freezing temperature hotel has to think from humanitarian grounds too. 3) Room I stayed did not have floor mats/wooden floors nor heaters (which hotels in hill station should have). 4) WiFi should be accessible to all the rooms. Front end staff said its only available in reception area and unfortunately it wasn't working for all 3 days. 5) Needs serious improvement in breakfast provided. Complimentary doesn't mean you could provide tasteless food. Tea served was severely diluted, milk was added to water which should be other way around. 6) Carrom boards which is placed are in terrible condition. Recommend to have some recreational activities to justify self as a resort. Recommendation to prospect travelers: 1) Not suitable one who wants to do a walk around in town and enjoy the beauty of heritage walks. 2) Not recommended if you are expecting hospitality from this resort, current level of hospitality is just that of a mere lodge with restaurant attached.
