Excellent Hotel with outstanding service

Service, Food, Cleanliness
Arrived with a warm welcome from the Manager, luggage taken care of immediately, welcome drink and check in in the room. We were made to feel special from the offset, all staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was outstanding and the service in the restaurant second to none. Staff were extremely proud of their hotel and Shimla, with tips on where to visit. I would recommend anyone to stay at the Oberoi Cecil, I certainly would go back.
