We were attracted to this small eatery on the Museum Road with their invitation on the door - 'Smoked Trouts Available'. It is actually a Lodge with few rooms and a nice cosy Dining Room, overlooking the Shimla Valley. And yes, they had Smoked Trout on the menu ( but only one was available on that day ! ). So...

The restaurant, has the most amazing view in town, with the best food. It requires prior booking & order. But it's worth it, the chicken curry / roast / apple pie are fresh made with amazing ingredients. I must say it was the most amazing service I have seen in Shimla, the guy in charge had just the right balance...

I had a great stay in Spars Lodge! Staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere was very good too. They served delicious food and rooms are clean and cozy. The price is really reasonable and I will definitely go back there on my next visit to Shimla!

This place is a nice homestay. I actually visited their restourant because of the attraction of smoked trout. It is little off route from the hustle bustle of the city center. But the mall is not far hardly a half an hour walk from this place. What you can expect from this place is a very cozy place to stay...

I had one of the most relaxing and lovely trips of my life, and staying at Spars Lodge was a very big part of it. The decor is simple and elegant, and the rooms were very comfortable. The whole hotel is pervaded by the most beautiful pinewood-y smell. Service was excellent and the manager was efficient, helpful and very pleasant....

a silent wooden lodge away from the main drag, Spars is the right place to stay in clean, bright rooms with delicious hone-cooked food. I only didn't like the tv on all the time in the dining room-lodge.

We 3 girls booked Spars Lodge on the Pay at hotel module. The room which we booked was for 2 adults double bedroom which before booking was confirmed by the hotel that 3 people could comfortably stay. Upon reaching the first thing we were told was that for 3rd person there would be extra charges. Somehow we considered it, the...

Located up a hill away from traffic, overlooking Himalayas; basic rooms ; helpful staff; interesting fellow guests; close to pedestrian mall. Perhaps 10-minute walk from train station; excellent trout and other dishes. Only negative: failed to pick us up at statin, despite arrangements made before our trip.

Very difficult to find the place. The lodge was supposed to be an high level hotel, but in realty it wasn't at all.. The receptionist (I think the owner too) was ok, but not very welcoming. He hasn't done nothing to make our staying better or nicer. Actually, during the dinner he was pushing us to finish our meal and...

We decided to stay here as it's a little way out of the main part of Shimla, so is very peaceful (although be warned of the steep hill to get to it! Good exercise though :)) The price was a little higher than expected, but we went for it anyway as we had arrived from an overnight bus at 6am...
