    Had a very pleasant stay. Valley view room provided a really good view and was quite big. The food at the restaurant was really nice and Punjabi thali is a must try.

    Although the experience at Oberoi was wonderful,still the hotel lacks in providing many things...... The king size bed which was provided to us had so soft mattresses which made us have sleepless nights and on the last night our grievance was finally resolved. As far as the staff is concerned,all of them were very courteous,soft and helpful who took extra care of us. The best part of the Hotel is the activity area for kids & the swimming pool along with its instructor who could probably lend all he had to teach swimming to the guests, this feature makes the Hotel distinct. The other thing is the lesser variety of dishes in the buffet... But on the whole the experience at Hotel Oberoi was wonderful.

    An absolutely beautiful, timeless hotel in an incredible location. The beauty of the property is only surpassed by the service - truly wonderful and a great pleasure to have experienced. I have left a separate review for the restaurant, Indian food at its finest...

  • Fabulous hotel and right up there with the best Oberois

    by Marchinglobsters on December 2, 2016

    We had a lovely room overlooking the valley on the third floor. Great bathroom and very comfortable bed. The restaurant was located on the floor below the bar lounge and the food is a mixture of a la carte and buffet. The food was really excellent and the service very special. Rajkumar Bhatia and his brigade in the kitchen are very good, the food was most unusual and I had the best curries in India here. The indoor pool was excellent and is 25m. The hotel is very well located for visiting Shimla only about 15 minutes walk away - but watch out for monkeys! Well done Oberoi Cecil.

  • A superb hotel in a stunning location.

    We stayed at the Oberoi Cecil as part of our Riviera Travel holiday in India. The welcome extended to our party after a 5 hour journey on the "Toy Train" was faultless. The building exudes opulance, with luxury everywhere you look . The rooms are very comfortable, the food is excellent and the service second to none. Watch out for monkeys in Shimla.

  • Outstanding hotel

  • Staggeringly beautiful and luxurious hotel -shame about the muzak

    by ChrisJS51 on November 30, 2016

    A throwback to the days of he Raj, a utterly beautiful and luxurious hotel. We stopped only for lunch on a day trip to Shimla and were initially struck by the ambience created by having Beethoven's 5th piped around the lower floors of the hotel - including the toilets! We soon realised, however, that we were hearing only the first movement - over and over again. Despite the problems with obtaining cash in India, you would have though they would have been able to change just 1000 rupees to pay for the drinks at lunch - but they couldn't (or rather, surely, wouldn't). By the way - the (just short of) 1000 rupees - more than 12 sterling - was for three small bottles of mineral water!!!

  • Away from the front door and suggest from floor three up

    by Marchinglobsters on December 2, 2016

  • Rooms at the rear are quieter.

  • Try to get a room that is not overlooking the road
