About The Oberoi Cecil
Over 100 years old, The Oberoi Cecil is a Grand Heritage Hotel. It is situated at Chaura Maidan, Shimla, 7000 feet up in the Himalayas.
A celebration of the elegance and grace of the Colonial era in the Queen of Hill Stations, located in the majestic Himalayan ranges, The Oberoi Cecil is very much a part of Shimla’s colonial history. The hotel has been restored to its original grandeur with wood floors, period furniture, crackling fires and an inviting ambience. Built around a beautiful atrium, the rooms offer splendid views of the mountains and valleys.
Built in 1884 as a Himalayan hill station, the hotel has been extensively renovated and reopened in 1997. With fabulous views across the valley, The Oberoi Cecil is a perfect base from which to explore the spectacular mountain scenery, cedar forests and ancient monasteries of this world famous destination. The Oberoi Cecil is within walking distance of the famous Vice Regal Lodge, former summer residence of the Viceroy of India.
A heated swimming pool, billiards rooms and children’s activity centre and many opportunities for nature walks, make this luxury resort an all season destination.
The Oberoi Cecil is just 10 minutes from Shimla Station and 45 minutes from Jubbarhatti Airport. Flights from Delhi arrive daily. There is ample private parking for guests who chose to drive or rent a car.
