A spa resort set in the Himalayan foothills 45 minutes’ drive and about 1000 ft above Shimla. The local airport has been closed for over a year, so the only practical way to get here is a 4 hour drive from Chandigarh. A throwback to the ‘old colonial’ style in furnishings, décor and ambience, and in keeping with the Oberoi penchant for this sort of thing. Good check in and pleasant mountain view room with vistas of the Himalayas including distant snow covered high ranges. Quite beautiful snowfall and mountainside views during our stay. Room size and bathroom adequate, bed comfortable with quality pillows (several choices) and linens. Some issues with getting the climate control / airconditioning to warm the room on a rather cold day, eventually sorted out but still had to get a portable radiation heater. Spa facilities very good, including a heated indoor pool (could be warmer though, especially on cold days), hot outdoor jacuzzi and steam rooms. Several other outdoor activities available, including walking trails of varying difficulty, archery, horseback riding, tennis, ice skating and whitewater rafting. The service everywhere is excellent - the staff are helpful, friendly and warm. Room service very good. Good collection of movie DVDs available at front desk to watch in room. Cautionary note: wireless internet only complimentary for 30 minutes a day, after which it’s charged at pretty high rates, which isn’t really cricket (so to speak!) at the kind of room rates you pay at the Wildflower Hall. Overall a very good hotel in the classic Indian tradition, but could do better with the climate control system and the wireless internet (and provide it complimentary), particularly as it’s a high end and high priced Oberoi hotel.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms all have very nice views of Himalayas, and also quieter

Have never experienced service like this, each and every staff member that you cross in the corridors to the Chef from the kitchen will greet you by your name. There is absolutely nothing to fault this magnificent hotel, the setting, the decor, atmosphere, food, spa facilities, treatments. ... The list goes on. An amazing 5 night stay.

of the Oberoi Group. We spent just over a week here, and we were sad to leave. From the minute that we were met in Chandigarh by the hotel driver to the minute that he dropped us of on our way home it was magical. The drive to Wildflower is four hours, but there is plenty to see. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted in true Oberoi style, and from then on it was perfect. Superb service, wondrous views, comfortable beds and the best food.

Room Tip: Mountain view.

Wildflower Hall did more than beat the hype - it created a league of its own in our minds. Everything about this hotel - the location, the grounds, the rooms, the views, and the food - were on a level we haven't before experienced. But nothing makes the same level of impression as the staff - each member, from the GM to the housekeeping - goes out of its way to make you feel welcome, known, and comfortable.

Recommendations: the hikes, rafting trips, and bike rides are all world class. Shooting archery and playing croquet is a blast. Reading/playing games in the game room with hot chocolate or coffee is a must. Eat breakfast outside every morning. Get to know the staff.

Highest recommendation.

Room Tip: We chose the mountain view and had no regrets

What an unforgettable weekend trip this was! We (2 couples) set out from Delhi by road - the drive was pleasant, although we got lost close to our destination! But one call to hotel staff, and we were back on the right path! That was the starting point of our impeccable customer experience!

Right from the time we walked in till the time we went out through the gates, the staff at Wildflower Hall were always ready to greet us and make our stay even more comfortable. Needless to say the property in itself was great, with the idyllic surroundings making the experience even more wonderful.

The jacuzzi was definitely the highlight of our stay! Because we had visited in the off-season, we had the jacuzzi to us for a long time - and we made the best use of it! The contrast of the warm water to the chill in the air was simply marvelous.

Although our stay was short (just an extended weekend trip), the experience was made memorable by the facilities this property had to offer, as well as the ever-smiling staff who made you feel "the most important" guest at the hotel!

As we promised Shruti while driving back, we shall be back soon!

Room Tip: A valley-facing room will be excellent!
