Spars Lodge

Guesthouse in Shimla

Though it's 2km west of Scandal Point, on the road up to the State Museum, Spars is a good choice for its homey feel, welcoming owners, bright, clean rooms, and lovely sunny dining and sitting area upstairs. The restaurant (mains ₹160 to ₹420) serves great food, including local trout and all-day English breakfasts, and has wi-fi.
