I visited Mashobra for the first time and reached The Summit Thistle on 27th Sep,19. The moment we entered this property we started loving it. Right from the reception area to lobby than to lawn and the dining area, I was mesmerised. Everything was so beautifully and aesthetically done. Each piece that has been kept there was par excellence and was uplifting the place.
While sitting in room or in the open area you can see clouds coming towards you from the beautiful valley.
The hospitality given by the hotel staff will make you feel like home.
The have activity zone also which consists of various games like Table Tennis,foosball,badminton etc.
You can also go for nature walk with Mr.Sudesh who is operational manager of the property and a very kind and generous human being .
I cannot resist my temptation of coming here again and again
A must visit for all nature lovers who love to stay in good property with good food and warm hospitality .
See you soon Summit Thistle.

Sunmit stay was excellent,room service and housekeeping was good and Suresh Sharma's personal touch was very helpful, he even brought us fruits to taste. Overall excellent customer service.
We stayed at this resort for 3 nights, having asked to be moved from the hopeless Summit Le Royale Hotel and Spa (which has no spa!) in the main city. The place was fairly empty being the off season in mid to late July. Surroundings are beautiful and rooms all face the valley, although the view was mostly obstructed for us by the villa in front.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We needed an extra bed which fit without an issue. The bathroom is also of a good size with the usual toiletries you expect in a 4 star property.
Breakfast is included and is tasty although there are not many items. You can order certain hot items fresh like paranthas and pooris which is always nice. The menu varies a bit each day. We also had lunch the day we arrived, which was good although a bit expensive compared to equal standard eateries in the city, not unexpected for a hotel. The view from the restaurant terrace was great!
We didn't try the spa. However we were disappointed by the lack of games room which is so prominently displayed on their website. The offer of chess or ludo didn't really make up for it! Was a real shame as kids were looking forward to it.
Our days were spent out and about. This resort is certainly not one with much to do in the daytime and we were lucky not to be stuck inside any day due to the monsoon rains. A good option if you want to be near Mashobra and wasn't a bad ride into the city, no more than 30 mins. Price is reasonable for bed and breakfast. Final issue was no provision for our driver. They don't offer them any food or lodging, only a blanket. Our driver was told about a dhaba down the hill, but it was shut due to being off season. Given the out of way location, this was a shame. Our driver said they treated taxi drivers better, no doubt since it may generate them future business! So this place is not ideal if you are coming in a private car with a driver.
My whole idea before choosing a resort in the outskirts of Shimla was having a luxurious getaway. Summit Thistle resort truly fulfilled that wish. The location of the resort is mindblowing offering a majestic view of the mountains and valley beneath. Luxury Rooms in Villa 6 have huge windows on the view side which offer great view of the mountains.
Food quality and taste and room service was also excellent. We were given 15% discount on all our orders from restaurant.
Facilities and furnishing in the rooms is no less than a highend 4 star property thats why we got a great value for our money.
The only aspects which need to be looked into are that not all villas are having such majestic views. Some rooms are being sold as luxury rooms but they don't satisfy the dimensions and interior of regular luxury rooms of the resort. Prices in Food menu are also a bit on a higher side. But overall i would strongly recommend this resort to anybody looking for a peaceful getaway around Shimla and looking to get good value for one's money
