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.

Catching up with Adrian, ...
... window behind the altar and brass plaques on the wall in commemorating past residents of Shimla. The main tourist area is pedestrianised with only official vehicles allowed. We stop to view their fire station - a shop front wide enough to fit a RAV4-type vehicle with handheld fire extinguishers and a ladder, and their 'immediate response' vehicle, a gleaming British Enfield motor bike equipped with a fire extinguisher and breathing apparatus. ...
... I discovered the buses to Manali had already left that night, so I booked a ticket for the following day and set out to find somewhere nearby to sleep. This proved practically impossible and almost drove me to insanity. It was late, I ...
... for people to buy food or just get off. Sometimes it doesn't stop and people get off anyway. Shimla is a long way up and very, very steep. G worried about slight disorientation until other 3 say they are the same. 9 hours in train may have something to do with it. Shimla station the usual confusion of a million new friends offering taxis, hotels, tours, their sisters. A comes to fore and adopts one tiny man who will also be our friend tomorrow. ...
