, Shimla Review

Hotel Willow Banks is a very old hotel. It was built in 1871 and it is well known hotel in Shimla. The hotel building is very beautiful on the hill station of Shimla, it attracts many tourists from all over India and abroad. You can see the hotel is surrounded by the natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere. This hotel is one of the best hotels in Shimla. The interiors and exteriors of the hotel is very elegant and the rooms are well furnished and luxurious with all modern facilities. The rooms have a private balconies too from where can view the amazing scenes of Shimlas natural beauty.

Well, the location is very good. Shimla is located in the state of Himachal Pradesh and is one of the most famous travel destinations of India. The climate in Shimla is predominantly cold during winters, and moderately warm during summers which is a great fun. You can reach here whenever you wish and enjoy the amazing atmosphere of Shimla.

The rooms were well kept, neat and clean. The washroom in the room are also well maintained. The room with the balcony is great.

I think one should book the rooms with balcony and that too on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor of the hotel. The rooms are categorised into Deluxe, Super Deluxe, Premium and Suites.
They also provides other facilities like Car Parking, Laundry and Room Service, Bathrooms with tubs, Banquet Hall to Accommodate up to 500 pax. The tariff starts from Rs. 3500 to Rs. 11000. The rates of the room depends on the comforts and additional facilities. They offers special seasonal and off season packages for 2 night and 3 days.

The food is also excellent here. They offer a Multi Cuisine restaurant called Cafe Willoes which serves mouthwatering dishes like Indian, Chinese and Continental. The services is great and truly cosmopolitan. Fusion Pub is a bar where vintage wines and spirits are served and also light snacks. They serve fusion things to eat along with fusion wines. They also offer a music and one can dance and enjoy as dance floor with strobe lights and diffused lighting are available which complete the hip-hop effect. Fiesta Food Court is a self-service fast food outlet which offer food at reasonably price and it is very nice and spacious place at terrace where roof-top view of Shimla Town can be enjoyed along with fabulous delicious food. It is an ideal venue for Bar-be-que and bon-fire with friends and family.

Indira Gandhi Sports Club is very near. As, Shimla is connected by air, road & railways. One can reach here very easily. The distances from Airport is 24 kms, Bus-stand is 1.2 kms & Railway Station is just 1.5 kms away from the hotel. The hotel is very nice and has got many facilities along with banqueting. It can accommodate up to 500 persons in one go. The staffs are also nice and experienced. The hotel is full of nice views and has many facilities to avail. It is a wonderful experience to stay at this hotel.
