We visited with a friend couple and booked the Finnish cottage for our one night stay in Shimla. Since we were staying on Christmas night, we wanted to be close to the mall road but did not want to stay on the mall but at some place more peaceful. I chanced upon this place while surfing for options and had...

Isolated from the city, this resort provides a tranquil environment for a stimulating vacation experience. It promises great food and a courteous staff, along with the picturesque beauty of the surrounding mountains and forest. Great place to stay if you are looking for natural beauty disconnected from city life.

They can definetly improve the road condition a bit. The resort is a classic heritage property which unreveals it self slowly, i.e from road to hotel gate then...

I stayed in the resort from 9th Dec for 2 days. Most part of it was built in Mid 1800. I stayed in Scottish Cottage for a night which was built by British Architect and everything (exterior, interior) reminds you of British era facing the Deodhar trees and pin drop silence. It's a double storied cottage with around 4 bedrooms,...

The location of the hotel is 500 metres from the Vidhan Bhavan and one has to go very steep downhill from there to reach the hotel. It is no doubt a heritage structure. Located in quite a remote area, although the mall road is around 1-2 kms away from the hotel. This is a very very quite and peaceful hotel....

The Shimla British Resort is a typical colonial style resort, with new furnishings the common areas had broken lamps and old furniture lying around. There is a need for maintenance. The rooms had stains on the walls. No activities for the kids they asked for carrom but we didn't get one. The staff were friendly and willing to help. Such...
