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.

What a day.
After arriving at the airport in plenty of time, my flight from Taipei was delayed an hour at the terminal and, once we'd boarded, another hour on the ground. Thankfully, the layover in Shanghai was long enough that it didn’t make much of a difference. Of course, the flight from Shanghai to Delhi then departed an hour late ...
... was called the Himalayan Queen, which had Zoe belting out the old Billy Ocean classic. We watched a TV programme a couple of months ago about Great Indian Railway Journeys and this one was featured. Spectacular is the only way to describe it. Also, there was a carriage at the front that seemed to be dedicated to the naughty boys. Every time we went through a tunnel they all screamed at a very high pitch like they were on the ghost train. They also liked to hang out of the open ...
... to me that I was locked out and needed to go to the front desk. Which, I did. One of the ladies there got a key and on the way up asked another young man ( employee of the hotel) to join us, in case the monkey was still here.
So the three of us carefully opened the door, peered around the corner and checked for a monkey. No monkey - thank heaven! - but there were two apples from the hotel on a ...
Shimla sprawls for miles along the ridge. Spar’s Lodge, on the west end, is on an extremely steep road which reminded us of the road that leads to our old home on Kamakurayama. A fine guarded estate, occupied by a Lieutenant General in the Indian Army, is directly across from Spar’s. The stone faced century in front made us feel secure. From the road just below, we could see snow caps in the Himalayas in ...
