I stayed at Shimla British resorts during my family trip to Himachal, it was a good experience overall. We were 5 people and booked a portion of the elegant Scottish villa. The rooms were clean, the service was fast, the food was good, and the staff was cordial, friendly, and coordinating. The resort is away from the Mall road of Shimla and is located at a link road downhill from Vidhan Sabha. The roads are quite steep there; you might need a driver who is experienced in driving in steep mountains however, if you are not that experienced then please call the management beforehand for a workaround. The resort is amidst big deodar trees, you will experience the serenity and beauty the mountains offer with the comfort of modern facilities, the old vintage décor, and heritage architecture that adds to its charm. • Location - 4/5, except the steep downhill road, there is no negative to the location. • Cleanliness – 5/5 • Food - 4/5 • Staff- 5/5 • Service - 5/5

It is a beautiful resort, surrounded by loads of beautiful trees. The rooms are in top notch condition with all the facilities in place. The food is awesome. The USP of the resort would be it's rich heritage and one of the best staffs that one can come accross. Definitely recommend staying here.

The British resort is the best place near mall road for staying. I was visited here with my 5 friends and we booked a cottage here. It was wonderful experience. Room service and foods are very delicious. The roof top everything of this place is perfect. So any one if planning for shimla vacation must stay here .
