The Oberoi Cecil was a beautiful hotel, magnificently restored and refurbished. Our suite was fabulous. The lovely main lounge area was fantastic for enjoying a quiet gin and tonic, even if it was very expensive. During our stay, staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful. However the staff member inspecting our room before we left was very abrupt. We had the distinct feeling we were "yesterday's guests". Both room and restaurant service was very slow and the food was certainly not up to the standard we would expect of this hotel. A sandwich we ordered for lunch was so stale, it was inedible. It was a real pity because overall it was a truly beautiful hotel.

I'd got a free taxi to start with and then had walked in with fellow students but today I ...
... was mid-day and sat on the edge and wrote my diary before checking again if Christ Church was open. It wasn't as it looked like some guys were renovating inside, which is good to see. I worked out that I shall only spend today in Shimla and leave for Dharamsala by bus in the morning so I started to make my way downhill to the bus station. On the way down there's a 2 part lift that you pay just Rs7 (9p) to use so I went down on it and reached the bottom where ...
