Peterhof is housed in a colonial building with rich heritage. During the days of British Raj it played host to Viceroys, post Independence it was first turned into a High Court and then into Raj Bhavan and now finally into a premier Himachal Tourism Hotel.
The hotel is away from the Mall and is closer to Viceroy Regal Lodge. A 20 minute walk will take you to the Mall and the Ridge.

Apple Blossom Fagu

Apple Blossom a delux HPTDC hotel at Fagu 22 Kms from Shimla

Scenic views, away from the crowds of Shimla

Apple view is not at Shimla but at Fagu, some 22 Kms from Shimla. The erstwhile Peach Blossom was razed down and a more modern looking Apple Blossom was build in its place. It is an ideal choice for those who want to skip the crowded Shimla and instead visit nearby destinations like Rampur, Theog, Kotkhai and other such undiscovered hill stations.
