Snow Flake Cottage
Ranked #79 of 146 Shimla B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Pros :

• Rooms: This is like your own 3BHK cottage if you are travelling with a big group. The living room is quiet spacious, lavishly decorated with woodwork, sofa and dining table. We used to have family dinners every night.
• Services: 24 hour running hot water. As we visited in last week of December, experienced sharp cold weather. But they made it comfortable with room heater, additional blankets and necessary room services.
• Food: Excellent food. In 2 days of stay, we tried Mughlai, Chinese and normal Daal-Roti, everything was too good and piping hot.
• Location: It may be a little far from Mall Road or Shimla Railway Station but it is worth to travel 5 6 KM extra for the scenic beauty this cottage has. In our cottage, we had attached balcony in 2 rooms and watched sunrise-sunset from there.
Cons:

• Nothing as such, except the stairs. If you are travelling with old person or kid, try to check if top-floors are available to avoid the stairs. They are quiet steep and our parents had to struggle.

  • Stayed: December 2013, travelled with family

Reviewed 14 January 2014

Pros:
1. Excellent view from the window/balcony
2. Great spacious rooms with good food
3. Option of occupying an entire floor (with 3 rooms) along with hall & kitchen for group of 6+
4. Separate geyser and drinking water with option for hot water
5. Nice people to help as needed
6. Away from crowd for those who enjoy the same

Cons:
1. Steep stairs could be difficult for old people.
2. Distance from Mall (8 KM) if you want to stay near Mall

If someone is looking to stay quietly away from the crowded Shimla/Mall, this could be the ideal location. For us, we actually enjoyed the stay at this hotel, although we had small kid and elderly people. It set the tone for our entire trip with brilliant nature and snows on the way.

Room Tip: Opt for top floors to avoid stairs
