The hotel location is wonderful... take a series of 3 lifts and you will land on the mall road. The behaviour of the hotel staff are so courteous that you cannot have anything to complain about. The rooms are spacious and we were provided valley facing rooms with small balconies. Their food is great, we tried both breakfast and dinner.... More

Fantastic view from my balcony during morning sun rising, unbeatable hotel location. You are just there in the center of all: Christ Church (5-minute walk), Shimla Mall (5-minute walk), Gaiety Theater (5-minute walk), Lakkar Bazar (11-minute walk), Jakhu Temple (17-minute walk)….and it is all positive, rest is in need of full recovery. The hotel feels like from 80’ and I... More

Worst hotel visited for the category it's listed in. Wish I could give a negative rating. Filthy rude unprofessional. Will never return and make sure no one known to me stays here. Service is pathetic. Stinking badly. Rude staff.

Excellent food, service and ambience. Jewel of a restaurant just steps away from Cullercoats Metro station. We shared a starter,had 2 mains,1 rice + 1 naan, 1 side....and toiled to finish our meal. Good wine + draft Indian beer. A wonderful 'must experience' restaurant.

We stayed in this hotel in Jan 2016 and I would say it was the perfect stay. We have stayed in many hotels but experience in Combermere was excellent. Generally, this hotel is full, but if you find room in this hotel especially during the peak season then you are golden. It is because the Hotel is right at the... More

This is definitely not a 4 star. Hotel is outdated and in need of a serious face lift. Staff are rude and lack customer service. Bathroom had fungus and mould and room cleanliness was very poor. Breakfast was non existent even though we paid 1500 Rupees per person for it. Choice of eggs or paratha. Don't stay here go somewhere... More

Good Hotel with nice view .... If Budget allows go for Suites.... In house restaurant offers good hot drinks and some multi cuisine food. Mall road starts the moment you exit from Mall road side gate . This Hotel has a facility of lifts as well. Roof top is ok to spend good time in the evening.

Probably the best place to stay in Shimla. It has perfect access to the Mall Road and Lower Bazar area. The food at its restaurant is delicious. The staff is amazing. They helped me with so many things, that I am forever thankful for that courtesy. The staff maintains some of that old Indian traditional hospitality and therefore on certain... More
