A very special traditional hotel.
Lovely, comfortable traditional hotel. For us a very special place to stay. Very high quality service combined with a low-key approach, totally without marbled pretentiousness.

Old world charm.
Fabulous hotel. The service here is impeccable. We got an upgrade to a suite room which was large and spacious. It had a small study a living area a bedroom and walk-in closet. The bathroom was huge too. It’s right in mall road so convenient to step out for a walk. The himachali food at the restaurant was delicious.

Superb Shimla
Had a FABULOUS time. Lovely, clean and quiet town. Very safe and friendly. Great experience to go up on the toy train and come back on the car motorail. Clarke's was so good, comfortable and convenient to the Mall. I wish we had had longer and look forward to another stay later. Only government cars can drive on the Mall so safe, quiet and easy to negotiate. The old Gaiety theatre a REAL gem. WONDERFUL that this piece of history still exists and has been restored. So much history in Shimla, well worth a visit and magnificent scenery and sunsets. Thank you Shimla and India.

Enjoyable stay
Very accommodating The manager Pooja was quite friendly and help.It was a pleasure with kind staff to push my sister in a wheelchair and walk up with luggage

Very good 8.0
Nice hotel but get a room with window
Eclxcellent location at one end of Mall Road. Excellent service - kudos to Oberoi’s for its warm hospitality. Hotel is outdated though. Breakfast very average. The worst part of our stay is that our room had no outside window - only a window opening into the corridor: we were not informed of this at the time of booking. We would have paid extra to get a room with a view. This particular room certainly wasn’t value for our money.
