“A hidden paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

The Wild Flower Hall is an experience which can never be forgotten. It is situated at a great spot, the room is really nice, spacious (the mountain view room we took) and cozy. Bathrooms could be better though were quite adequate. The dining is very good (though a trifle expensive). The room service and hotel service in general is unbelievably good. I have never met such courteous and polite staff. They go at great lengths to make you feel speical.

The area around the hotel is beautiful, we took a trail (strawberry trail) which was extremely enjoyable. We were lucky to have surreal weather during the whole of our stay, and it felt literally like we were living in the clouds!! The outdoor jacuzzi and the indoor pool are magnificient, with the jacuzzi specially being an out of the world experience.

Now the few minuses...the checkout has horrible, it took approx. half an hour. I was getting late for my flight and finally had to go myself to the room to bring my luggage down!!!!! The lady at the counter seemed pretty helpless and another guy was insisting that i hadnt returned the DVD which actually i had and they admitted the same albeit after making me wait for 15 mins.!! After the wonderful experience with the staff previously, this was very disappointing indeed. Secondly, the outdoor activities are all chargeable and quite expensive. Looking at the room rates, these rates should be brought down.

This hotel was amazing. The views and location are wonderful and the hotel fully does justice to the location.
We could not fault this hotel at all in any way. Check in was smooth and easy with a welcome drink. The room was lovely, very clean and the servicing of the room was great. The restaurant areas and food were excellent. The pool was really nice and we spent a lot of time in it, in the infinity jacuzzi and on the terrace looking at the views.
The staff were very attentive but without being over the top. It was my birthday whilst we were there and they went the extra mile to make sure I really enjoyed it.
The spa was marvelous, in its own secluded building. We had the Himalayan Romance spa for couples, very nice indeed.
This truly is a world class hotel and our stay was out of this world.

We stayed here for a period of 4 nights. The staff is extremely polite adn went out to great lenghths to accomodate our sepcial requests, be it putting the jacuzzi heater on ad odd hours, changing the pillows from their great pillow menu. The valley view room offered was great and the toileteires provided were exceptionally good. The thing which exceptionally stood out was how beautiful the place was, eagerness of the staff to kepp us happy and the jacuzzi offering amazing view of the mountain ranges

Room Tip: Please request for valley view rooms and use thier extensive movie library

Beautiful resort perched on high hill, with view of never ending mountain range out side and warm hospitality of Oberoi inside.

Wooden interior, plus setting. The perfect service of the room service just adds to its grand. Hotel staff do gives one company if at all u don’t have any , I got attentive staff to play billiards with me.

Restaurant food is just perfect and designed to satisfy every one palate.

Room’s are descent, not over decorated, Bathroom’s fittings toiletries are pretty nice. We experienced unexpected leakage of AC, hotel staff moved swiftly to get it fixed, and offered us to be shifted to another room at any time of our convenience. But fix after 1 fumble worked! GM personally meet us to apologies for, which was really appreciated, and ya we did get a choclate cake .

It snowed when we stayed so did not actually go to see much of mountain trail, did go to city in hotels car.

Breakfast is quiet good, with option to chose or ask chef to make few things of you don’t see it in buffet.

As far is value for money goes of course yes! food is quiet reasonable and not as pricey as one may think, but spa services are.

Check in and check out was swift, invoice was not presented at time of check out as system was down, but was emailed to me after one reminder.

To note ! really less television channels are available. And transmission gets disrupted if there is snowfall. Cellular coverage is good.

Over all nice stay and certainly to remember:-) would love to go there again, and some more time exclusively in resort.

Room Tip: May cost extra ! choose the room with montain View

We just came back from Wildflower Hall after spending our 10th wedding anniversay there. Since we were travelling during the monsoons, I had a few questions regarding the weather and what we would be able to do at the hotel. The managers at Wildflower Hall (Robert and Lee) were very responsive in getting back to my various queries via email.
Check-in was a breeze and they upgraded us to a mountain view room. Not sure if it would have mattered as the weather was cloudy and foggy throughout our stay, so didnt really see any mountains from the room. But still appreciated the upgrade without even asking.
On our anniversary night, there was a nice small chocolate cake kept in our room with wishes from their GM.
The hotel is very luxurious and exudes old world charm in its ambience and decor. Very british and very colonial.
The staff were super attentive and greeted us by our name and with a namaste everytime. Our server during dinner paid a lot of attention to what we wanted and suggested good himalayan dishes for us to sample. His name is Manish and he attended to us during breakfast and dinner. He did a special set-up for our anniversary dinner and recommended the himalayan thali - which we tried and loved!
We also took the couples massage in thier SPA. The fire massage was fabulous and the ambience of the spa room was great.
The breakfast was great - a wide variety of cold and hot options. My wife tried the eggs benedict which she loved. Everythng is made fresh and as per your specifications. Dinner was great too.
And now to the best part - the outdoor hot jacuzzi. The highlight of the hotel and the best place to spend your evenings or night.
So, in summary, this is a luxurious romantic hotel, with a very warm and attentive staff that will make you feel like royalty- You cannot go worng by choosing to stay here. Its pricey, but its worth every ruppee!!

I had the privilege to stay at the Wildflower Hall last month while I was on a business trip. The Hotel arranges an Airport pick-up (ofcourse, at a cost) in a comfortable Innvoa/ Honda CRV Avis car from Avis with experienced & well mannered drivers.

The moment you enter the Hotel, you will be charmed by beauty surrounding the Hotel. Seems as if nature has blessed this location. You can smell fresh air, you can feel the oxygen you are breathing, the air is so pure.

One of my best experiences in the Hotel was the Spa treatment. They have a signature Spa - Journey to Tibet. You have to try it, it's nothing less than nirvana.

Everything including the restaurant, bar, indoor swimming pool, patio etc is outstanding. I feel the service levels have some room for improvement.

Next time you are in Shimla/ Mshobra, do experience the Oberoi hospitality. It's superb !

Shimla is one of those places that must be in your bucket list. Then Oberoi Wildflower Hall is a place for you to stay. It is more than a hotel, it is an attraction itself. Everything is perfect in this hotel. You feel every single staff is paying attention to you as soon as you check-in. From the moment you walked in the hotel, greetings from the GM couple to the staff that brings you hot towel and drinks to refresh you. The 5 star standard is very evident. You come in the door, GM greets you, minute after that you get your hot towel, seconds after that you get your drink and minute after that you get one of the staff assisting you to your room with your key for in room check in. Service is very fast, I felt like there's always staff standing next to me, hearing what I will ask for. Staff at the restaurants are really trying hard to make sure you get exactly what you want as you want it. And they are all very knowledgeable of their product and everything around it. I remembered asking what is the time difference from India to Spain and he excused him self to check and within a minute he came back with an answer. Other than that, he answered all our questions regarding Oberoi, Shimla, etc. with confidence, I was so impressed. Make sure you spend time in the lawn with your coffee or tea, It's amazing out there, I love their chocolate cookies. Take time waking up in one morning walk, it's unbelievably different, in fact morning afternoon and evening is different everywhere you look. Breakfast buffet is divine. Breakfast is the only time you will see most of the guest, sometimes during the day you'll ask your self if you're the only guest staying in the hotel then you'll come to find out the hotel is 95% occupied. Amazing! Yes when you're there make sure to spend time in the pool and jacuzzi it's one of those things to do whilst you're staying in the hotel.Oh the hotel (rooms/suites, amenities) it self is everything they say on the website, and more! I love this hotel, best hotel ever, best long weekend ever!
Thank you Robert , Storm & all the staff of Oberoi Wildflower Hall for your genuine hospitality!!
