“Average.. but a budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012 via mobile

I stayed in this hotel for 48 hours... This is a average hotel. Room, Food, need to be improved. if you got this hotel with some budjet.. then you can manage.

Bad Room Quality, Worst Room Services, Worst Food, Very Poor Menu for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, Wasted Time and Money. Only big infrastructure, nothing else. Will never suggest anyone to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Room Should Give Good Feel

This hotel was depressing and dingy. We were supposed to stay 3 nights but spent our first evening in Shimla looking for another hotel. The hotel was cold (but to be fair they all were! In fact if you got to HP in winter, take a hot water bottle!) and the bathroom was horrible; the bath was cracked and chipped, the toilet seat although not actually dirty was covered with black stains. The 'head waiter' was very nice and went out of his way to give us what we wanted but the food was nothing to write home about and the atmosphere - it was like staying in a haunted house. It was dead.

The hotel looks good from outside but rooms are shabby. We went in winter it was booked through make my trip worst experience, whole day it was chilling still they dont provide room heater and hot water they maintain their own stupid timings. When we went some schools/college had come excursion worst thing was we had buffet breakfast/dinner arranged with them so nothing was left to have. Nobody even cared to look if everybody had food or not. Worst service.
I would prefer honeymoon Inn. The best hotel in Manali, Shimla and massouri.

We have stayed in suit room. The room are very big air conditioned, they provide heater on winter session but it was very small. The hotel located at shimla enterance. They have complementry breakfast and dinner tariff. Food taste ok but no more veraities. The hotel have no accomodation for drivers they need to sleep on car so drivers feel uncomfortable on next day driving. The room rates are ok compare with other hotels.

Room Tip: The room tariffs are depending with View point.

This hotel looks quite grand from the outside. However the rooms are terrible. Dirty and smelly. Bathroom had mould on the ceiling, and ceiling was falling down. The room was unheated, heat provided by a one bar electric fire from the 1970s, that sparked in a most dangerous manner. The breakfast was the worst food i have eaten in India. Avoid!!!
