“Good location and cooperative staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The Oakwood Hamlet is located at Shoghi about 20 KM before Shimla , you have to be on look out for the sign board otherwise you will miss the small road which takes you to the hotel the road which connects main road to the hotel is about 2 km of rough driving , but as we reach at the hotel check in is quick and we were given the double accommodation , where children can sleep upstairs overall location is very nice and atmosphere is quite relaxing , food is good but not a vast menu just the basics similarly do not look for luxury in amenities, but you can enjoy there relax and homely atmosphere staff is very nice and polite , and even if it takes time for and order they will serve it with a smile that you overlook the delay , there snacks of pakora with evening tea were very nice and tastes so good in that atmosphere .Our hut was facing the valley and in the morning you can watch the birds , parrots flying from one side to another very nice view . Swimming pool was just ok . There is not much to do but you can go for tracking and there guide will accompany you with no extra cost . Overall nice experience of short stay peaceful away from rush and relaxing .

Room Tip: Take the hut facing the valley

Nestled in the valley - Great location. Food Tastes good but hygiene is a question. The Towels ate all soiled, the bedsheets are soiled. The room gyser was not working. The door was almost about to break. The hotel area is very small - you can at max spend a day there- nothing much to do. I will never go back. I would rather stay at Aamod Resort in Shoghi.

Room Tip: Room number 206 has the best view. Room 205 is also ok. All the rest are a waste of money.

Above all the staff was so co-operative. If you want to go to relax, you should go with them. Very peaceful. Not much activities available but Swimming Pool was very clean. Food was good. DJ was available. If you need something from market, you can ask the staff without any hesitation.

Room Tip: Book your rooms in advance and talk to them direct at resort. if you go through anybody else it will...

i checked into the resort on the 18 of June 2013, we were a group of 17 people with 5 kids
was amazed by the location

beautifully nested in the Valley, the rooms turned out to be very decent with all amenities

the food the served was delicious, a special mention goes to Mr Sanjay Thakur from the kitchen and service who served us food with a smile even at 12am in the night

We all had a lot of fun with the activities specially the Swimming Pool , rock climbing, valley crossing

the kids were very happy the ample playing area with a Table tennis table and swings

Overall the resort with its over courteous staff and amenities was a pleasant stay for the whole group

We stayed at Hotel Oak Wood Hamlet From 15th May to 18th May. We were a family of 8. The day we arrived we felt we are getting into an isolated place and were upset.. as this place is 19 Km away from Shimla. But when we reached there it was like Heaven. Shim la it self is a very crowded place. Stay at Oak Wood made us feel relaxed. There were adventures which was conducted by the Hotelier which was enjoyed by the young family members. After visiting for a day to Shimla Mall Road we decided that we would be much more happier staying at the Resort it self. Service of all the staff members were excellent. They made you feel at home, Food severed was yummy... IT WAS GREAT STAY.... WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

it is a very good location ,,,little bit off beat just 3 km from NH very well marked. Oakwood is situated in a valley surrounded by hills .This is good place to learn doing trekking specially for children, We took along a guide and our children age 5,8,12 and 15 for a small trek ,we all went to the tallest peak as well ,except the child age 5 ,though reaching the railway trek is a good fun and very beautiful .The hotel staff is very courteous and provide very fast service. Must appreciate Narinder who is managing the place very well..I wish to be here again with all my friends...

I found this place on the internet a couple of weeks before. The first impression when you enter the place is WOW and the impression stays on till you are there. Peaceful place, good food, excellent service. There are also outdoor activities like rock climbing etc. which i was not interested in but for kids it was a big hit.
I went with my family and though i really enjoyed the place, my Dad also loved it.
The resort is beautifully done and with the hills surrounding it, it is just an ideal place to take a break from the city rush.
It is just 16 kms before Simla, making it a reachable destination for the weekend even from Delhi.
So, if you are in Delhi and looking for a weekend spot, don't miss this one.

Room Tip: Mud huts for people with kids as they are a bit bigger than the bamboo huts. But in case you are a...
