Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Mashobra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Expensive yes, but this is a very special hotel. It is set in a magnificent hilltop location, beautifully decorated and furnished in a modern colonial style and offers every facility and comfort that could reasonably be wanted.

Views from the dining terrace and the infinity pool are stunning with 180 degrees of snow capped Himalaya in the distance. There are pleasant gardens in which to take a short stroll, or step outside the hotel's grounds for a peaceful walk through pine forests with more great views.

We had room 111 with a garden view, for 4 days. The room was large and comfortable with an excellent bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, not too soft as is sometimes the case and none of the ghastly memory foam that always makes me wake up too hot. The air con/heating was silent and maintained the desired temperature perfectly.

The staff were outstanding. Both my wife and I were slightly unwell during our stay (nothing to do with the hotel) and they couldn't do enough to make us comfortable, special drinks, bringing medication for us from Shimla and finally when a doctor had to be called all was arranged and the doctor's visit completed within an hour. The manager (who always addressed us by name) couldn't have been more efficient or kinder.

Food was always good and often excellent from the a la carte menu.

Minor quibbles? (1) Although this was the most expensive hotel we stayed in during our 3 week tour of northern India, it was the only one to restrict free wi-fi to half an hour a day. (2) Drinks prices are very high.

I had been planning a getaway for some time and spend quality time with my better half. Wildflower Hall was just the destination we had wanted. Just located right with great views of the Himalayas.

Not to forget the exceptional staff providing great service. Must visit.

I came across the hotel Website quite by accident during a Google search for "Himalayan wild flowers" over a year ago, and straightaway decided to include it in my trip to India. My hopes and expectations were exceeded!

The stunning location, tasteful decor and fitments, and the layout and design of the hotel and rooms are faultless. The well trained staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The food was of the usual Oberoi high standard and the menus interesting with an adequate choice.

The activities available suite both the adventurous and energetic, and those in search of relaxation and tranquility - like me!

The highlight for me was a walk in the forest on the "Wild Strawberry Trail", for which I must thank my naturalist/guide, Pawan. He is impressively knowledgeable and informative on the local trees, wild flowers and bird life, and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation during and after the walk. I appreciated his help in finding the best viewpoints for photographs both on the trail and the surrounding hills. For anyone with an interest in nature, Pawan will be an immediate friend and companion.

Overall, a truly lovely experience; among the very best India has to offer.

This hotel undoubtedly is one of the best hotels in India. The scenic beauty it offers is unmatched and the brand Oberoi takes care of the rest.
Exceptional quality of service and great food. This place is meant for the soul.
My only complain - In these times, when Internet has become a basic necessity, try and make it available FoC.

Heard a lot about the property.... loved the pictures on the oberoi website... and finally experienced the magnifique Wildflower Hall. I was here on a 2 day vacation with my colleagues from March 21 to 23rd, 2014. Right from the first view of the Hotel then the lovely staff members, the old colonial look, the beautiful rooms, the surronding cedar trees, the breathtaking outdoor jacuzzi and the food.... you will definitely fall in love with the place. Kudos to The GM & the staff.. Guys I am coming back....

Room Tip: I found all the rooms were good as we had some 40 rooms.
