How to get pampered in style
If you want to reward yourself and want to get pampered don't think further, just pack your bags and go to Cecil. On main entrance you'll meet Rahul who will be your concierge who will mesmerize you with his soft spoken pleasent personality. Word of caution: Don't interact too much with Rajkumar, Chef because after eating his signature chicken & desert you would never want to leave that place. Rajkumar ji also gave me Shimla potrait which I've duly framed & a recipe too. My eight year old daughter said that from now on she will stay at Cecil Oberoi only & why not as she spent her total visit in activity center which was well monitored with experience caretaker. In all I was unable to point out any flaw. It's flawless.
We visited Shimla in last week of March 2021. We stayed at Oberio Cecil. As they say first impression is the last impression, when we checked in, the first view of the majestic lounge area gave us a glimpse of what we’re to look forward to in coming days and we were not disappointed at all! From the well laid out spic and span rooms with balcony for a view to die for, kids play are, swimming pool, spa, spacious dining area, you name it and they have it! And Above all I would like to specially mention the heart touching experience we had while interacting with each and every member of the staff. From Ms Deepika Kukreja and team including Meghna at the reception to welcome you to Mr Rajkumar Bhatia, Sous Chef and team including Karki, Priya, Sonam and others to dish out sumptuous cuisines from the kitchen, Prashant and other from house keeping team, each and every member of the staff was so courteous and helpful. Apologies if I missed any name, as it was unintentional. Thank you to one and all and for making our stay truly memorable! Mr Bhatia and team not only ensured we get finger licking food, but went the extra mile to prepare Mickey Mouse pancakes for our kids during breakfast on each day of our stay there! Worth visiting and experiencing the hospitality as we ourselves would not mind visiting again!
An amazing hotel with great food.The chef there Raj Kumar Bhatia made some amazing dishes.It is a great place for kids as well with many indoor activities.This property has great hospitality and is very welcoming
I stayed at The cesil, Oberoi’s and I truly had the best experience. The staff was incredible. The rooms were also pretty good always neat and tidy, well maintained. The chef, Rajkumar Bhatia was excellent the food was also very good and tasty. But the chef was mind blowing.
The Perfect Place to Stay for a Holiday
We stayed for 5 days at Cecil. It is a heritage property. Was built in 1884. The common areas as well as the rooms are well maintained and clean. The hotel staff is super courteous and takes great care of the guests. During my entire stay, not even once I heard anybody saying “no” or “not possible”. Whether I speak of room service or housekeeping or restaurant folks. The food is absolutely lip smacking. The head chef and his team are brilliant. A huge shoutout goes to Rajkumar Bhatia. Proof lies in me gaining many kgs. On the service part in restaurant, special shoutout goes to Vineet Sharma who was very hospitable. He had good knowledge of all cuisines and recommend some fantastic dishes. I had issues with people not wearing masks in buffet area. Hotel promptly took steps so that guests not wearing masks are not a risk to others. Scope for more improvement but people are people, despite being told, guests don’t listen to hotel staff and continue to default by not wearing masks in common areas. Overall, The Oberoi Cecil is one of the best holiday stays I have had in a long time.
