Review Authored by The Editor.
Vinatge Old charm of British Raj, an interesting option only in summers.

The hotel is housed amidst four acres of greenery in a heritage building dating to 1865. The building was reconstructed in 1938 by the Rana of Jubbal. It is located on Raj Bhawan Road, a good 15 minute walk from the Mall Road.

There are two complexes: the heritage building and the newer complex. Rooms in both the complex have understated elegance about them and excellent views. Old complex has more period charm about it with anitques at every corner.
We would not recommend this hotel in winters as heating facility is inadequate in winters. There are no central heating facility at this hotel. Fireplace et al adds to the romantic character to the hotel but sometimes is inadequate to keep out the cold.

In house multi cuisine restaurant. Ask the chef for Himachali cuisine

Our Verdict: 4/ 5
