Oberoi Cecil Hotel - Shimla

The five-star Oberoi Cecil Hotel is well located in a commanding position overlooking Shimla, within walking distance from the centre. With its Burmese teak floors and magnificent atrium, this is one of India’s best-known and best-loved hotels. The hotel has maintained a warm colonial feel, with a charming tea lounge & lobby bar, a heated indoor pool and excellent Asian Spa. The high-ceilinged, wood-panelled restaurant with its white linen-covered tables and views across the foothills of the Himalayas is a pleasure to dine in and, as you would expect, the service is exceptional. All 75 rooms are beautifully furnished in classically elegant style with a small seating area & writing desk, wooden floors, luxurious marble bathrooms, hairdryer, minibar, TV & DVD, internet access (extra charge), safe and tea/coffee-maker. Please note most rooms have king-size beds; a few twin-bedded rooms are available on request but cannot be pre-booked or guaranteed.

Swimming pools in India: most outside pools are not heated and may not be usable in the winter months.
