Excellent views and far away from the crowds of Shimla

For long, HPTDC used to run a laid back budget hotel at Fagu under the name of Peach Blossom. It boasted of excellent views and understated hospitality. Then some wise guy at HPTDC had a brilliant idea to break down the simple cottage style building and to build one so called modern building. This is the story of Apple Blossom, a simple but elegant structure that was Peach Blossom became modern Apple Blossom. For many of us who used to love the old Peach Blossom, the new one is a let down.

Location
It is at Fagu, 22 Kms (an hours drive)from Shimla.There are plenty of local buses that ply between Fagu and Shimla.
Views of the valley are extremely good from the hotel. It is an ideal location for those who want to skip the crowded Shimla and instead visit nearby destinations like Rampur, Theog, Kotkhai and other such undiscovered hill stations.

Rooms
Simple and adequately furnished rooms. Opt for their super deluxe rooms as they offer the best views.

Food
There are not many good restaurants nearby so you will have to do with simple fare that is served at a very leisure place.

Summary:
Pros: Excellent views, uncrowded and close to nature
Easily Accessible as it close to the highway
Cons: Far from Shimla town (taxi will cost you Rs.600 onwards); Not much activity at the resort or around; Somewhat indifferent service standards

Our Verdict: 4/ 5
Apple Blossom a delux HPTDC hotel at Fagu 22 Kms from Shimla Website
Indicative Tariff
Rs. 1,700 Per Room Per Night
