In the very heart of town, at level with Shimla's elegant Mall and close to the Tourism Lift, Hotel Combermere is Shimla's most modern hotel. It successfully combines today's amenities, service and comforts with the graceful ways of life that belong to an older era. In 1828, Shimla received its first landmark- Combermere Bridge. The bridge built by Lord Combermere, the British Commander-in-Chief of the Indian army, Spanned a gushing mountain stream. It took over hundred and fifty years for the next major landmark to be built by that stream- Hotel Combermere.
