An integral part of Shimla’s colonial history, the Oberoi Cecil, Shimla is a celebration of the Raj’s influential rule in the ‘queen of hill stations.’ Crackling fires, period furniture and a beautiful atrium, all create an inviting ambience for the weary soul.

We solved the room problem but it was stressfull.The food was OK but we had to keep asking for dishes at breakfast to be served warm.The walks were very good with the naturalist-Sorry this refers to the Wildflower as we did not stay at Cecil

This is the best hotel to stay at with access to main Shimla sites but is very old fashioned and stuffy. Terrible Muzak played in restaurant and full of tour parties. We were constantly asked

A wonderful hotel and friendly efficient staff. The best breakfast buffet we have ever seen. Although the building is wonderful, the people absolutely make this hotel excellent.
