Hotel's Favorite
Amazing views of the valley. Away from the city hustle-bustle. Well planned and comfortable rooms. Peaceful and serene. Thats how one can describe Woodsmoke. The staff was courteous. Mr Lucky from management team made sure our stay was comfortable. Food was also good. If you are looking to spend some peaceful time with your family (or with yourself), there is no better place in Shimla/Shoghi.

I went their to welcome 2020 with my family. We were 13 people. The place and comfortable and clean. On our first day we had some issues with the food but the staff was cooperative enough to tackle it for the rest two days. Rooms were spacious and beautiful though we had some smell problem in one of the room which was also tackled with a smile. Their library is beautiful, their coffee shop has a balcony which is an idle place to enjoy your coffee with a great valley view. I would recommend you to take a room near the library or the coffee shop.

Most of you would agree that as a costumer, it's always the one negative experience that stays with you and becomes the highlight of the entire stay. So let me begin there before I move on to the positives. The first word of advice if you plan to book this place is to do your research on the rates being offered by the resort and what the travel sites are selling this place for. We are frequent travelers and this one was a last minute plan. I stumbled upon this place while intending to book Aamod shogi. Looked at the Trip Advisor reviews and found it decent enough so decided to try it out. We directly contacted the resort as our experience thus far said that the best rates come directly from the hotel and cuts out all the other caveats too. So this time we did not even check what the other sites were offering and in the haste, booked at the rate offered@6500 per night for MAP package for three nights. After checking in, did not feel that the price we had agreed to pay for was justified as it's slightly lower than a three star property and it was an absolutely off peak season for them. The spa was shut as the staff was on leave! The buffets were very small. The croutons in the tomato soup smelled of old oil and tasted horrible enough to be chewed. while cleaning the room, the staff forgot their duster on one of my jackets! The bathrooms did not have any hair dryers for a property of this rate and location. Now, while we were staying there, for some reason I ended up seeing the rates on the travel portals and it was almost 50% cheaper. When we spoke to Mr Lucky who.mans the front desk, the response was a point blank NO to make any adjustments to our tariff. The reasons were not so concrete, including saying that now the bill is generated (it's a hotel run independently and by the look of it, run like a private property so I couldn't get this excuse at all!). After a reasonable enough discussion, I gave up and obviously decided there is no point coming back to a place where trust has been royally broken! Now for the positives- good location, away from the maddening crowds, good food, decent enough open spaces and indoor and outdoor games, the library particularly is very tastefully done and the rooms are spacious enough. We were in the attic room with balcony (room 203 has an issue with sewage smell, so don't take that if offered). The rating would have been definitely better if not for the tariff issue. But unfortunately difficult for me to go beyond an average rating when I look at the overall experience it left us with. Have highlighted the other things that bring down their experience. Either they need to up their game on customer experience or lower their rates!
