He has no etiquettes and don't even know how to treat humans (forget about customers). There was no warm water in the hotel. There were rats in our toilet. We were...

This is the worst resort ever which has horrible staff and offers a terrible experience. The food is lousy. The resort is situated at a remote area of 20 kms away from the town inside a jungle. Pathetic service. Worst untidy rooms. Overall a nightmare to visit there again.

Good Points: 1) Located in a calm location 40 min drive away from crowded shimla. 2) Good view from room. 3) Soups provided for dinner were mind blowing for the chill weather. Area that needs serious attention: 1) Staff to have touch of hospitality from front...
