              Outstanding Hotel, Exceptional Service...”
              I have now stayed at the Oberoi Cecil a couple of times, and on both occasions the ex-erience was incredible. Shimla is a magical place, and the Cecil is the only place to stay. Beyond the exquisite hotel and its historical charm, the professionalism and service from the Oberoi team is classy and efficient. On my most recent trip a family emergency came up, and the Cecil team went above and beyond to ensure we immediately got a taxi to Delhi and also a reservation at a sister Oberoi at extremely short notice. I wouldn’t hesitate in highly recommending the Oberoi Cecil to anyone.

              Best honeymoon hotel”
              This could probably be the best honeymoon hotel in Shimla. Excellent location, amazing sunset views from balcony. Grand king sized bed and amazing toilet with tub. Was offered a cake and tub was decorated with petals and fragrance as me and my wife were on a honeymoon trip. Great location, just 15 mins walk to mall road where all things happen. In-room service has got an excellent menu options with all cuisines on board. Lavish swimming pool and interiors makes this place want to go again for anybody. Great staff, very welcoming and warm. I would recommend every couple this hotel...

              Really excellent, the location is great in that you walk out and you are in the town, but thye best thing about the hotel is the staff esepecially the people in the restaurant, special mention for Krishna and Soumie (not sure I got the spelling correct), they made the hotel very special.

              It was nothing but perfect. Hotel staff took very good care of us right from the time we exited our car. This is by far the best service experience I've had. I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation, Thanks again Oberoi's for making everything so perfect.

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.
