Dear Trip advisor member, Thank you for taking out your valuable time and feedback. Your comments about location, rooms and welcome experience are truly cherished. I am deeply concerned about your feedback about the hotel services and food not being at par with other Oberoi hotels. Training and service philosophy of all Oberoi hotels is standardized and all guests across every Oberoi hotel should ideally receive similar quality of service. I offer sincere apologies on having failed to meet your expectations. I also thank you for taking the time out to share this feedback at the time of your departure from the hotel. I do hope you have received my email sent to you on the same day acknowledging and thanking you for your feedback. I regret that you are discontent with our services but I sincerely hope that you will consider visiting us again and will give us an opportunity to serve you better on your next visit to Shimla and Clarkes hotel. Warm Regards, Pooja Bhondekar Pooja.bhondekar@clarkesshimla.com
