Ballyhack Cottage

B&b in Shimla

A new building on one of Shimla's oldest properties, in a superb central location just off the Ridge, five-room Ballyhack combines an evocatively colonial ambience (polished-wood floors and furniture, old prints, tiled floors, rugs) with current amenities including comfy beds, tea/coffee equipment and good contemporary bathrooms. The garden terraces have views to the distant Himalaya in good weather.

Dinner is available as well as the included breakfast. Rates sink to ₹3000 in low season.
