““Great location and friendly staff””
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Whistling Pines Resort.
As a tourist, my priority was location, cleanliness and quietness. This resort certainly provided me with all three and much more. The room and bathroom were spotless clean and the bed simply heavenly.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful, you can enjoy the beautiful view from the balcony of the hotel..... The staff was professional, the food was good, Chef can customize your food as a vegetarian i loved this food.

The hotel, the rooms, the staff and of course Shimla is wonderful.

Hotel is located between the woods and the drive upto hotel is awesome i! It just adds to the character of this hotel.

I Think the hotels best asset is its staff ! The excellent service they provide was effortless and everything is delivered with a chat and a smile .

I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Shimla.
Best wishes to all the staff

We stayed for 5 days in this hotel. Clean large room, clean and comfortable. It's like a home away from home. This hotel staff is the most precious asset which is friendly and always very helpful.
I needed a good clean hotel and got exactly what you're looking for. I have stayed in many hotels and this topped them all in terms of value for the price you pay. The location came in handy as we wanted to relax and enjoy the holiday with my family, but it may not suite all as is a little away from the city center.

One of the best place that will take me back to Shimla. The homely hospitality is just appreciable and worth everything. The professional & friendly staff is an asset to this place. Further more, this place will make you forget everything and sink you into the relaxing aura with scenic beauty. My experience was ten out of ten. Must visit place.

Took the family for a quick getaway to Shimla since i needed to get away from the stress of the city life. Whistling Pines was a recommendation from a friend who had stayed there on a business trip a year ago. The hotel is 15-20 KMs from Shimla town (easier to get to if one has his own vehicle), nestled between pine trees ( hence the name), a picture of tranquility- just what the doctor ordered. Stayed there for 3 days and did a bit of sight seeing around Shimla town. The staff was courteous, service friendly and surprisingly easy on the pocket. It was really cold when we visited but the hotel was warm and snug. Will visit again for sure

Room Tip: Call ahead and speak with Mr Krishan.. He will help you pick out the room. Advance booking a must du...
