Reviewed 16 July 2012

We stayed in shilon resort for 3 nights 4 days and enjoyed it fully. The rooms and services are good but requires further improvements. We were in a group of 16 in all and had nice fun being there. The weather and scenic beauty was excellent. The place is worth visiting again n again. The staff was cordial and helpful and needs to be complimented.

Stayed: June 2012, travelled with family

Recently came back from this place . The place is mind boggling , with amazing rooms and excellent view. They rightly claim this place to be 44 acres of Switzerland . The food quality and the services is also amazing , contrary to what I have read in some of the review in trip advisor . Chekin was done quickly, food ordered was given in 10 mintues of time . The staff was very prompt and hlpfull The place is strongly recommended for a leisure and family trip .

We were there at Shilon resorts and enjoyed our 4 day stay .In peak season you cant expect much but the staff was very helpful.We had small kids and they helped us with getting the food done as per our requirement , special thanks to Mr Pitamber sharma who is the GM . He helped us organize a small Bonfire next to our rooms (yes you read correct Bonfire in june ) it was chilling night . we enjoyed sitting next to fire.

There is a small Tea stall just outside resort which serves Maggi and Tea , amazing in cold weather .

Food is ok , service being peek season were slow but came.Sometimes same menu being repeated .Nothing much for children , you can play there in the parks though .and if you are family you can enjoy sitting and playing among yourselves .

Nothing is near so you need to take cab to go out.kufri is nearest and then shimla

its a Place meant for people who just wants to stay out of hustle bustle of cities and enjoy peace .

one word of caution it is 3-4 hours journey from Kalka , so one has to be prepared for road trip if you are going form Delhi - kalka shatbadi

Room Tip: we were on ground floor and view of valley was amazing

It's an amazing place. We visited here during second week of June'12 as a getaway from Delhi heat and we were greeted by cold breeze and rain. Its located on kufri chail road, away from noise and pollution of Shimla. The place assures you of breath taking views, good food, decent service and complete peace of mind. Don't make a mistake of going to kufri or shimla, its only going to add to travelling bills and spinning heads. I was lucky to even witness a jackal being chased by dogs from my balcony, a couple of wood peckers (apart from other exotic birds) and variety of roses in your garden. Don't forget to capture a sun-rise early in the morning. A must visit place if you can travel on serpent roads for 5-6 hours from kalka Station.

Room Tip: Ask for duplex or rooms on second level, if possible. Else all rooms have good valley views.

I have been to this place earlier as well but the experience was not much to write about.

However I have been to Shilon Bagh in June 12 and had a wonderful experience.This time around there was a lot of change in the way they were treating their customers rather I should say the way we were treated. The food was AMAZING with a great buffet!!!! The staff was amazingly courteous and friendly. They made us feel at home right from the moment we entered the property.

On nothing that we asked for we got a NO as an answer!!! Needless to say on the day of the check out we would have wanted to stay for couple of more days but unfortunately time was an issue.

Great going guys and keep up the good work you are doing!!!

Readers - Please do visit this resort for the location & the food it offers as this is great as a home away from your home!!!

Room Tip: Take ground level rooms which given a lot of area to walk around outside your room and the view is a...

Pros: Good Property with nice view with cottage like rooms, Breathtaking natural views...

Cons:Pathetic service.... they infact dont understand the meaning of customer service... I was on my honeymoon and all i felt was as if they have been obliged by letting me stay in this property.

Twice they refused to serve the food in restuarant saying there are bigger group and you can order in your room... we cant service you, please order the food in your room.

My brother had also stayed in this property and hence recommended based on the location but he also experienced un professional behaviour in the past from the property caretakers which he had mentioned before the stay.

Mr. GM: It is just not the property but the behaviour of the staff also which helps make a complete memorable experience for anyone.

Stayed: June 2012, travelled as a couple
