Travellers' Choice
Nestled near the lush Shimla reserved forest, The Nilaya is a boutique hotel near Mashobra. Situated an hour away from the hustle-bustle of Shimla, the state capital of Himachal Pradesh, the area retains the pristine beauty of the Himalayas. Get enchanted by the snow-clad peaks in the winters, driving through clouds in the monsoon and take a much-needed break from hot summers in the plains.

Definitely will be talking about this place for years to come. Its truly one of a kind property. Its so beautiful, peaceful and mesmerising place to stay with Glass roof bar, himalayan view restaurant and amazing rooms. And the most important part of the property is their Manager and whole staff who are very much cooperative and humble i would say. Met their owner as well in Wine and cheese tasting festival who really has a personal touch with his property. Hope to visit them again soon and for you all perfectly recommended to stay🤟

One of the nicest hotel experiences I've had in a while. The place is so well made, every nook and corner tastefully and thoughtfully done. We went for 2 nights but really wanted to extend our trip. The food! So good! Everything that we ordered off their menu tasted superb and was freshly prepared. The staff there is so helpful and courteous. We had an amazing amazing time and will return for sure.

Our college Alumni's decided to have our annual get-together at this place. We were a large group of around 40 people and were afraid that the hotel might not be able to do justice to our annual event. The hotel staff not only did an excellent job but they went out of their way to make sure this event at The Nilaya was the most memorable one until so far. They arranged a live music band, cakes for celebrations, arranged bonfires and also the transport from stations of Kalka/Chandigarh as well as the airport. The hotel has a large parking area, breathtaking views and a lovely restaurant and a bar. One must not forget to visit the attic where there are indoor playing games, excellent seating arrangements and nice decor. It has an indoor as well as an outdoor dining area making a wonderful place to have dinner during a snowfall. The rooms are well laid out with large areas and well-equipped furniture. The garden and the seating deck outdoors are a choice in the morning. The lounge in the reception has a unique decor and gives a warm welcome to the guests. Our whole group was extremely satisfied and we returned with a smile and a big Thank you to the hotel staff. Mr Gyauru Thakur the General Manager and Mr Jagdish the other staff deserve compliments for taking extra pains to make our stay and experience the best so far.

Choosing "The Nilaya" had been the best decision to celebrate our 12th anniversary with close friends and families. All staff are always happily smiling to give you the best service. Food was finger licking delicious, recommendation is to try their local dishes and pizzas, all the food in the menu is delicious. Breakfast was awesome and freshly made and served. Mr. Uday (Chef of Nilaya) and his team have been exceeding the expectations. Special thank you to Mr. Gyaroo Thakur (GM) and his team who have been extraordinary in taking care of all small bits in the property. All in all it is a 5 STAR experience!!!

If you look at the ambiance of the property then it rates at 4 star but there is literally no service. One of the owners was present on the property and it seems he had instructed the House Keeping staff to put basic necessities like a Bath mat also only when requested. Toiletries were also on demand. Breakfast timing was from 8-10.30 am but the breakfast was never ready before 8.30 am and at times only after 9 am. Can't understand why have the timing as 8-10.30?? Day 1 Sambhar was over before even half of guests had finished breakfast, the chef added water to whatever sambhar was left and served, making it unpalatable. Similarly if you asked for coffee or tea on the table, it would not be delivered even after 15 min. The tables in the dining area and the floor were dirty. The property which is tastefully built is being let down by poor service and trying to do cost cutting at the expense of Guest Comfort and hygiene.

Response from laksh arora, Owner at The Nilaya
Responded 27 Oct 2022
Hello, First of all, I am sorry that you did not have a great experience and were let down by the service standards at The Nilaya. Please allow me to address all the points that you have mentioned and what we can possibly do to avoid a repetition of these experiences. Bath Mats - During the summer season, we were indeed running low on bath mats, they weren't removed due to cost-saving measures but as a standardization, till the stock arrived. Amenities - We do offer a full amenity kit on-demand, and place a dental and sanitary kit by default in every room. Right next to it we have mentioned that all other amenities (and a list of them all) can be delivered to your room on demand, 24 hours a day. Breakfast timing - I am sorry to hear that the team hasn't been following a strict timeline. You are absolutely right that 8am means 8 am set up for breakfast, and that refills and tea service should be prompt. In the past 1-2 months, we have been regularly doing audits of the breakfast to avoid such unfortunate issues. Owner's presence and cost-saving measures - Please trust me, coming from the horses' mouth, that this is not my intention. And definitely not the guidance and training are given to the team for service standards. There seems to be a gap within the team in which set protocols - specifically for breakfast are not being followed. I do apologize again for the bathmat issue while reasoning with you that the amenities are an additional service on demand, and we have been quite transparent with that. I am positive that this review will go a long way for us to make our team understand that such misses aren't acceptable, and I thank you for highlighting this. This only helps us do better. Thank you Laksh Arora

Every trip creates memories and a stay at the Nilaya created many special ones. Away from the hustle of life, in the lap of nature we had a great family stay with hill view, sunshine filling our aesthetically designed, clean, spacious and comfortable rooms with warmth and relaxation. The food was delectable and the ambience made us smile and hum with the chirping of birds. The staff was welcoming, polite and greatly supportive. Room service was excellent and cabs were also easily available. Garden, spa, attic, books, food, music, lights and the emerald canopy gave us one of the most peaceful and refreshing stays. The attic offers the most peaceful moments with an amazing view of mountain and valleys 360 degree which can be enjoyed with books, music or the various activities available. Guided walk under the starry sky, nature walk to the woods nearby and sunset view from the swings and seating area left us wanting to stay a little longer at this beautiful boutique hotel!
