Expensive yes, but this is a very special hotel. It is set in a magnificent hilltop location, beautifully decorated and furnished in a modern colonial style and offers every facility and comfort that could reasonably be wanted.
Views from the dining terrace and the infinity pool are stunning with 180 degrees of snow capped Himalaya in the distance. There are pleasant gardens in which to take a short stroll, or step outside the hotel's grounds for a peaceful walk through pine forests with more great views.
We had room 111 with a garden view, for 4 days. The room was large and comfortable with an excellent bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, not too soft as is sometimes the case and none of the ghastly memory foam that always makes me wake up too hot. The air con/heating was silent and maintained the desired temperature perfectly.
The staff were outstanding. Both my wife and I were slightly unwell during our stay (nothing to do with the hotel) and they couldn't do enough to make us comfortable, special drinks, bringing medication for us from Shimla and finally when a doctor had to be called all was arranged and the doctor's visit completed within an hour. The manager (who always addressed us by name) couldn't have been more efficient or kinder.
Food was always good and often excellent from the a la carte menu.
Minor quibbles? (1) Although this was the most expensive hotel we stayed in during our 3 week tour of northern India, it was the only one to restrict free wi-fi to half an hour a day. (2) Drinks prices are very high.
