Such a nice and kind family. We felt very lucky that we got to stay in this place. Take a taxi as it is a bit out of town. The rooms are spotless and comfortable with a nice few on the forest. And the food..! Both breakfasts and dinners were absolutely delicious. We had some lovely talks with the Granddad of the family as well.. we truly recommend you stay here!

We had taken a family room during a 3 night stay this December at Vatsalyam...the stay was great ...thanks to Mr. Ashish and family, they were very helpful right from guiding us through to the homestay, last minute arrangment of cab for local sight seeing, as the car we had hired from Delhi ended up in a workshop for repair, the excellent hospitality and personal care shown during the stay, the tasty food prepared and served in-house, cleanliness, fine tuning the itenarary I had for Shimla and further
Manali visit...

we have no second opinion in opting Vatsalyam again when we get an opportunity to visit Shimla the next time...

Why cannot every hotel, B & B or Homestay be like this? We were greeted like royalty from the moment we arrived by the Sharda family for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, spotless with every amenity one could require and the bathroom looked as though it had never been used! Our room had easy access to a large sun terrace with spectacular view. We were treated to a copious dinner, with several courses, all home prepared and superb quality. Breakfast was equally good.
Our hosts spoke superb English and we were given a good insight into the locality and even the national politics in a gentle and intelligent way. We felt like we had made new and genuine friends by the time we had completed our short, two night stay. A big thank you to the family, whom we would love to see again.

Room Tip: The 2 rooms we saw were equally good.

The highlight of our stay in Shimla was without doubt our most charming host family who made us feel not just as welcome guests but honoured friends. From the moment we arrived, we knew we had come to somewhere special - yes the location and scenery; yes, the comfortable rooms and the food - but into the heart of a family who wanted no more than we enjoyed the best that Shimla had to offer. Nothing was too much trouble and with a wealth of useful information, they engaged a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable taxi driver and even negotiated a better price for us. This stay will linger in our memories for many years to come. Thank you.

A very great and quiet place to stay in the outskirts of Shimla i.e. about 7 KMs from the Mall Road...
It's a kind of stay where you won't feel like an outsider or a tourist unless and until you move out from here.
The people who owned this home stay served us like a part of their family only.
It's a very cool home stay with about 4 spacious family rooms extending in a pleasant balcony from where one can enjoy the beautiful scenery, sunrise and a warm sunset.
Even all the services and the pleasure of the guests are taken care of...
Received an appreciable and noteworthy hospitality by staying here...
