We stayed in Willow Banks for 3 days. The location is gr8....it is on the mall road. So shopping area, the ridge, Christ church all famous points are within 5-10 minutes walk. Food was awesome. Staff very co-operative. Rooms are spacious and clean. We are looking forward to stay there again.

Unique Quality: Food quality very good.
Spacious Rooms
Location superb

Directions: Tourism lift

Though on the expensive side, Willow Banks is an excellent place to have a memorable vacation in Simla/ Shimla.
It is a great welcoming, warm place, with nice exteriors and wonderfully cosy and tasteful interiors.
We were shown several rooms in the vicinity of each others (we were a group of 15-odd friends and wanted rooms close to each other), rather promptly. The nice tasteful rooms are well equipped with running hot and cold water, wall2wall carpeted, cable TV, mini-fridge, central heating, balconies overlooking the valley or the Mall, (as the case may be).

Great views of the valley, excellent location, lovely food and courteous service at your beck and call are all perfect ingredients for a nice stay there. Being centrally heated, it is very comfortable even in the peak winter season.
Its outdoor restaurant serves fast food and has nice views of the valley below, esp. those of sunrise and sunset .The indoor restaurant is near the reception and serves delicious food.
Overall our stay was comfortable and enjoyable.

PS: though the only niggle in our stay was that after we settled our bills, we were told that a hand-towel was missing from one of our rooms, (though there were no such problem), and we were asked to pay Rs. 50/- for it (despite the fact that our bills were well in excess of Rs. 15,000/- for the entire group's stay !!).

Unique Quality: Great Location right on the Mall road, with the added advantage of being at walking distance from the Tourist Lift, its location enabled us to be in the thick of activities on the Mall, yet be very easy to move away from it all , by being able to take numerous buses and local transport available from the bottom of Tourist Lift.
Courteous, polite, unobtrusive and helpful service and delicious food is like the icing on the cake !! :)

Directions: Few Minutes walk from the Tourist Lift on the Mall, towards the Scandal Point.
