Generally, most of us choose to have a relaxing holiday in the comfort of our own homes. But, with the best part of this year having spent at home in pursuit of social distancing and hygiene, everyone is looking for a change.

Fortunately, a place called Crossroads B&B cocooned amidst the lush green deodar forest in the hill town of Shimla inspires you to leave monotony life behind and come to a place that’s quiet, cosy and socially isolated.

This bed & breakfast is situated at a walking distance from the Mall Road, at a stone’s throw away from the nearby tourist attractions such as the historic Mall Road, Ridge, Kali Bari Temple, Lakkar Bazaar, and the Advanced Studies are at a walking distance from here.

To be precise, The Mall is just 200 meter away while Jakhoo Temple and the Shimla-Kalka railway – a UNESCO World Heritage Site are 1 km away from the property.

The lodge is located in the gorgeous and tranquil location that offers unparalleled views of the valley and snow-covered Himalayan ranges. With thick forests in the backdrop, this destination provides a unique experience and an air of rustic charm combined with modern interiors.


Each room in the lodge is fully furnished and includes a private bathroom with a shower and free toiletries. The accommodation offers free Wi-Fi to the guests who want to stay connected during the vacation.

Guest reviews

1. What we really liked about the lodge was the view from our room. Another good thing was that it’s situated near the Mall, so you don’t have to spend on a cab to visit the main attractions in Shimla.

2. The lodge is well-furnished and cosy. Good for family stay. However, the staff should be more active to meet the needs of their guests. Aside from that, everything is perfectly fine.

3. The lodge is beautiful inside out. The interior is pretty decent with a wooden ceiling, walls, and flooring. I really liked the location of the hotel, as it’s very near to the Mall road – where you can easily find amazing eateries and bakery shops to enjoy a variety of dishes and confectioneries.

4. I recently visited with my family in this lodge. What I liked here is that they are strictly following the safety protocols directed to prevent coronavirus. Therefore, it’s safe to stay even at the time of the pandemic outbreak.

5. From the interior to basic facilities and outside views, everything is on point. But the food served here is not that great. It’s decent but not too delicious. However, it doesn’t matter much because the lodge is near Mall Road where you can easily find various restaurants and bakeries for enjoying different meals.
