    Historic Hotel in Shimla

    Great hotel, very historic in the heart of Shimla. Recommended to hire a guide that can take you to the interesting spots in town and share knowledge about the history of Shimla.

    Fantastic stay!

    My stay was fantastic nothing short of perfection and it felt very safe in the current chaos. The property is extremely charming, the staff is highly professional courteous hospitable and inclusive - a special mention to the staff at the front office, concierge, in room dining as well as the housekeeping. Each one made my stay memorable. The heated pool services are offered with full sanitation with slots and has restricted and limited usage for safety reasons. This was the jackpot and highlight of my stay. I will keep visiting the property undoubtedly.

    As always a great stay at the oberoi property. Amazing hospitality, great staff, really really good food at the restaurants. The breakfast options could be better but only because it's oberoi - still better compared to other hospitals. Loved my stay here and would love to return to any and all Oberoi properties.

    Too Good

    Stay in Cecil was excellent in every respect, we had come to relax and honestly could not have chosen a better property. The staff was very very good and food excellent.My room number 206 was spacious and well furnished. The Spa facilities and heated swimming pool really made it a very relaxed trip. Cannot suggest any improvements, Will love to come back.
