Personalized and stately luxury
We were at the Oberoi in the shoulder season, so it wasn't too crowded. We received an extremely high level of person service, most notably when we were sitting down for breakfast one morning and we were asked if we'd like the same drinks as usual, or something to that effect. We got a free upgrade when we checked in, which was perfect for our group size. Beautiful views of the green hills out the window in the mornings. Room was very comfortable and well-kept. Five star service.

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.

If Shimla is the queen of the hills then Oberoi should be called the ambassador of Shimla. They elevated the whole experience to another level. Special thanks to Chef Rajkumar, Nisha, Vipin, Virender, Shanib, Humke and then many more staff members, who make it their personal duty to serve you with the best hospitality one can offer.
