Tendril Cottage, built in 1877. It's very close to Viceregal Lodge and for many years housed the Foreign Office of the Government of India. It was sold in 1902 to Florence Elizabeth Hotz, who opened it as the Hotel Cecil. The hotel was sold to a hotelier named Faletti, who had a very well-known hotel of that name in Lahore, and in 1916 he created the Associated Hotels of India, which included the Cecil, Corstorphans (also in Shimla), Faletti's Lahore, Maiden's Delhi, Flashman Rawalpindi, and the Cecil at Murree. Buck wrote (p. 172), "Today [the 1920s] the Cecil is par excellence the hotel of the East."
