A delightful and classy 'hotel' - but with real home comforts - in Shimla, less than 10 minutes drive from Shimla station. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - fabulous garden room, tastefully furnished with fab comfy bed and ample space, separate dressing room plus huge shower room. The view from our garden suite was breathtaking, right out on to the mountains - we sat out in the immaculately kept gardens just breathing in the fresh air and admiring the views. Although not a formal restaurant, meals/dinner can be ordered in advance and eaten in the dining room where breakfast is served - food all fine, not haute cuisine but tasty home cooking. If you are in Shimla it would be difficult to find a hotel that is as special as this little slice of mountain paradise.

We, of course, walked all of them and I still a have some lungs left to curse the Brit who thought that Shimla would be a great place for a summer retreat.
Aside from the malls, Shimla boasts the lovely, yellow St Michael's Cathedral which is perched on Ridge Road, a ...
... historic bric a brac! The building again colonial is a white painted wooden facade and pretty garden. High hopes. We pay the obligatory 15 times more than the Indians in front and hand over or bags, because stealing a six foot stone Ganesh was a consideration, and head in. First room - power cut. Second room - three power cuts. Fourth room - didn't see because I had to feel my way out in he pitch black. You get the drift were asked to go upstairs where they have ...

The biggest challenge was getting out of the city, particularly as almost everyone you went to for advice was a bare-faced liar. Got told all sorts of lies about journey times and how trains would be fully booked. At the main railway station a guy pointed out that i was approaching the wrong office (which was ...
