    The location was excellent and what makes it stand out is that all the staff that we came into contact with were all very professional, accommodating, helpful and extremely friendly, without being too familiar. Breakfast and the main evening meals were very well presented and very tasty. Overall a very unforgettable stay in this wonderful hotel.

    Nothing, everything was perfect.

    Food was the highlight - good array of choices; excellent taste; impeccable service; chef personally described the choices and the way they were cooked. Beyond food, facilities and rooms were good, especially when considering that the hotel opened in 1899. I believe that the current building is largely from the 1930's. Less than 40 rooms but very clean, very attentive staff, nicely furnished rooms, well equipped bathroom.

    The hotel is old but very well maintained. Its location is in the mid-levels of a city located on steep hills with narrow streets. Many of the city's attractions are located on the highest levels of the city, so location is ok but not ideal. Hotel is located on a street that is now a pedestrian mall, so its very quiet around the hotel. Getting to the hotel is not real convenient, either requiring going up 50 steps or so (bellmen on hand to carry the luggage) from the street below; or walking down several blocks from the nearest street above the hotel allowing vehicles. Would be difficult for mobility impaired guests.

    The hotel is very charming, clean and with excellent location. The staff goes above and beyond to make you at home. I’m very happy with my stay at Clarke’s hotel and I highly recommended it!

    Nothing I didn’t. Like. I was surprised by the lack of AC but it didn’t matter, the temperature in Shimla is so pleasant and the charm of the hotel compensated for the minor issue.

    A lovely heritage hotel with fantastic staff who were so helpful and friendly.

    Lots of stairs to negotiate but that is the nature of the terrain in Shimla. No problem for active people but if one is disabled it could be,
