Recently stayed at the hotel with a large group of friends from London. The service was amazing especially form Rajkumar and his team in the restaurant - nothing was too much trouble for them.They were happy to assist with any request we made outside the set menu.
Wonderful old hotel
by AHAJT on
This was the 2nd Oberoi hotel on our 3 week trip of northern India and again we had the good fortune to receive an upgrade to a beautiful Luxury Suite. When we planned our holiday we chose the Cecil in preference of the Wildflower Hall because of it's location in town as we wanted to be within walking distance of the sights. After a scenic but arduous 5 hour drive from Chandigarh airport it was a delight to be greeted by the wonderful staff and settle in to our beautiful accommodation. We stayed here 3 nights during the Diwali holiday and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel was beautifully decorated and lit for the occasion and a firework display was put on. We dined here every night and found the a la carte restaurant and service excellent. There was also a buffet dinner on offer which we didn't try. When we stayed the hotel appeared to be full and the central courtyard lounge/bar area got quite congested especially when a coach tour arrived early evening and 30+ people had to be checked in at a time when guests were enjoying pre-dinner cocktails. It would be preferable to all parties if these two functions could be separated. Whilst staying the Cecil organised a lunch booking for us at the Wildflower Hall which was well worth the short drive as the outside terrace there is a wonderful venue with breathtaking views. Highly recommend.
An Old Charm Revisited
by docayan on
It's always wonderful to come back to a wonderful property and more so the service of Cecil. The entire team of Cecil from Amardeep the GM To the front office team to the Food and Beverage team would take care that you are so well pampered . I would suggest take the Valley view Rooms and in the evening u can open up the window to lie in your bed and still awe at the hills below. It's the only place in Mall road to offer parking to the Guests and I would suggest u must try the Heritage walk for the new timers of Shimla . The team would show u around the Mall.road in a guided walk which u can take anytime of the day. The gourmet lovers must try the new preparation of Chef Gurmeet and Chef Bhatia who have introduced some new menu options .Must try is the Dhauladhar Chicken and special Pudding and the Himalayan Trout and Vineet and Ravi would serve you with delight . I must say try out the cocktails at the bar as u hear the pianist playing various tunes . The bartenders Chiranjeet and Deepak are artists and be it Mocktails or Cocktails they would make some thing really palatable to your desires. Thanks to Urvi and her Team that the stay was not just comfortable but it felt wonderful to visit old hosts with the new team members and everyone including Col Chauhan would welcome you with a wonderful charm. Thank u Amardeep for such a warm hospitality

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the hotel team really went out of their way to make it special for the two of us. We were awestruck with their hospitality, warmth and promptness of services. Right from hotel entrance to Housekeeping and Room Service, everyone knew that it was our anniversary and wished us every time we picked up the phone in our room to reach out for any sort of service or information. We were also upgraded to a luxury suite on complimentary basis and not just that, it was decorated with flowers and balloons as a gesture to make our stay more memorable. And I believe all of this could happen because of their General Manager - Mr. Vishal Pathak whom I wrote to, after making the reservation, to clarify some doubts. I would definitely stay here whenever I visit Shimla again, probably in off season. I am cutting down 1 star on this review only because of the food portion served viz-a-viz-a-viz the price charged for it. However, keeping the food portion aside, I found the prices for food and drinks justifiable as there are very few luxury hotels in Shimla and procurement of resources are usually tough on hill stations in India. Plus, if you have any sort of food intolerance and want your meal customized, Oberoi Cecil is the place to go.

It's the service and staff training that make this a 5 star location. The product knowledge of food, wines and the locality are top class. The genuine smiles are delightful. The worry or concern about the slightest blip in standards are obvious. Every aspiring high quality hotel in India and elsewhere should seek to recruit from here ( many do) because the tea here are terrific.
