""Dear Shalini! It was a pleasure to have you and your team over at our home. we have taken note of your suggestions and will surely make the necessary changes.Thank you so much for being such wonderful guests and of course for your time for reviewing FHV. We are delighted to note that we were able to reach your expectations. Our business thrives on guests who leave with fond memories and create a wonderful opportunity for us to receive their friends and families. Being located in the thick of a forest does leave all the noise and chaos behind. Once our guests enter the Villa, the endeavor is to create an atmosphere of complete relaxation and an 'At Home' feel. We are happy that you have carried back fond memories of your stay here and we look forward to welcoming you back to FHV soon ! Best regards, Pooja & Sunil""

“Had an excellent and laid back time at Forest Hill Villa.... Highly recommended”
Reviewed 8 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I had stayed for 2 nights along with my family and my pet dog... Mr. Suneil (owner) was extremely helpful while carrying out the bookings.... I was given all the necessary directions to the property and the relevant instructions.... and the property was spic and span.. Very welcoming.. Made more so by the caretaker (Sunder) and his family... If you are looking for a laid back time to be spent with your family / friends, in a plush environment, this is the place to go... One can go for a walk down the road or play board games (plenty of them in the villa)... Though food is home cooked and is very delicious (Thanks to Sunder and his wife), the choice of food can be improved a little.... Some of the vegetables were not available and can only be brought from Simla (we were told)... But all put together, a very nice time which we had... My special thanks to Sunder and his family for taking very good care of us...

“Middle in Forest and Top of the word”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were group of 7 peoples and visited Mashobra on first weekend in sep. FHV is located in forest area, 15 KM away from Shimla. It is a 4 room beautiful cottage.
It is spacious cottage, it is divided into three floors, and it has separate drowning, dining and living area. Cottage is beautifully done with minute detailing. Open terrace at lower ground is best place, where we spend our most of the time. Owner Mr. Sunil is gem person, quick response on every email. Care taker Sunder and his wife Shalu is best hosts. And knows to make guest happy with his cooking skills. View from cottage is very scenic. However in our stay most of time clouds keep floating in front of us that was an experience. Trek right from in front of cottage up to “wild flower hall” is dare-full and a test of your health. “However ask team prices before ordering there ”.
Over all experience is very good. I would recommend it especially for a big family

“SCENIC, BEAUTIFUL & ATTRACTIVE”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Nice villa with homely environment, away from hustle and bustle. Best place for splendid vacations. We in a group stayed in the property for 4 nights, really enjoyed the property. The best part is terrace garden with stylish furniture in the garden for enjoying your morning and evening tea. Luxuriously maintained by the owner. Sunder and Shalu, a cute couple and care taker of the villa is worth mentioning. We really enjoyed their hospitality and food cooked by them as well. We really cherish the memories of days spent there and like to visit again. Its worth spending. Lastly, the owner of the property Mr.Suneil Ahluwalia was always there to help us from the date of booking and till the end of the stay. Special thanks to Mr.Suneil.

“Paradise in Mashobra”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Forest Hill Villa is just the perfect spot for a nice peaceful vacation in the hills just next to Mashobra. The villa is extremely spacious with amazing views from all areas, specially from the terrace. The villa has 3 rooms + an attic (which also can be the 4th room), Living Room, balcony next to the attic and an open terrace where you can sit all day long and admire the amazing views.

The couches, beds are extremely comfortable and linen is clean and the overall villa is spick and span. The woodwork, atrifacts and the overall villa is very tastefully done.

The care taker Sundar and his wife are extremely helpful and cook amazing food as per your choice. They guided us about which treks we could take and also took us personally for a small trek close by. Their service is fantastic and are extremely flexible with our timings to prepare food for us.

I would highly recommend people with families and group of friends to stay at Forest Hill Villa.

“Home away from home in the hills”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A nice cottage with homely environment to relax and chill out with family. Great hospitality provided by the couple Sundar and Shalu is worth mentioning. They took great care of our needs and were friendly and cooperative. We stayed for 3 nights and still cherish those memories of morning tea in the lawn gazing at the mountains & woods and barbeque nights.
