    • Don't go to Shimla...alas

      Reviewed 1 day ago

      From Chandigar to Shimla is a bone-chilling auto trip up 6000 feet of switchbacks and steep drops on narrow two-way roads full of traffic including big busses and trucks..often with no guard-rails to 7500 feet...3 1/2 hours of discomfort. This hill-station town, once the official summer capital when Calcutta got too hot..was once a Victorian Disney overpopulated by well-off Indians coming from Delhi and elsewhere..and their longer picturesque at all. Yes, there are hills all around..not mountains..and way off... a few snow-covered peaks. The hotel, the original Oberai, was a British lodging for officials of the built up and out..unfortunately involving a fair number of staircases and disconnected sections..quite confusing. The staff, as at all Oberois, is outstanding..they usually know you by name..the food, both breakfast and dinner very good. A fine room (but keep your balcony windows closed because monkeys climb up and lurk waiting to trash your mini-bar !!) Shopping on the once-famous Mall is disappointing..few remnants of the Raj Christ Church... the Gaiety Theatre, and the Viceregal lodge (closed on the Monday when we were there). On the hotel..yes..on !

    • A magical experience with wonderful people

      We spent a couple of days in Shimla at the Oberoi Cecil and were charmed by the beautiful heritage building. It felt as though we were transported back to a more elegant age. All the staff we encountered during our visit were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to ensure that our experience was faultless. Amardeep Singh, the general manager made sure all our needs and requests were promptly met and Ashish Rawat, the head of housekeeping was a delightful, friendly lady. We also had a wonderful cookery lesson from chef Rajkumar Bhatia, which was one of the highlights of our trip. The food at the hotel is excellent and it felt like a privilege to learn some secrets of the preparation of these delicious regional dishes. I will certainly try to replicate them on my return home! All in all a truly remarkable hotel experience.

    • Professional in every aspect

      Reviewed 4 days ago

      At the end of a long journey around India, and a long journey from Ambala railway station to Shimla, we found the jewel in India's crown - The Cecil. The comfort offered in every facility was beyond expectations. The Cecil deservedly holds the accolade of a five star Hotel, it may initially appear ostentatious to some but it retains a remarkable homely feel. This is due to the staff being efficient, courteous and not intrusive. It is remarkable that through out our three day stay we developed a closeness with the staff and yet the relationship remained professional. The cuisine is 'to die for...!' As we consumed authentic Indian food (albeit that Western food was ample and first class), the knowledge imparted by the excellent staff deserves high recognition - they truly made our stay outstanding - even accommodating a 'no onions' regime !!. We would like to ensure that Rajkumar Bhatia (Sous Chef) Restaurant Manager Veheet and his colleague Hemiash (apologies for misspellings) receive praise for their input in to our stay - highly commendable members of a great team that ultimately made the journey from Ambala so worth while.

      A very special hotel in Shimla which exceeds expectations in every way. It's very stylish and comfortable and the staff go above and beyond in terms of friendliness and helpfulness. The rooms are spacious and well designed, the bar is lovely and the food in the restaurant superb.
