A Piece Of Paradise In Shimla
90% of their almost 1800 TripAdvisor reviews are 5 Stars. Ours add one more. But we wish we could give them 6 stars or higher. We have been going there since 2013. This was our fifth stay. Each time they exceed our already high expectations. The staff provides an inspired, warm and empowered service. Even the GM is always around keeping a close eye, yet giving enough space for the staff to feel fully empowered to do their best. And they deliver. The great outdoor soaking tub has the view of the mountains and a perfect water temperature no matter what the weather is at the moment. We used it every day - even when it rained! Here's one of our pictures of the place during the rain. We can go on and on, but most of our experience is captured in a very wonderfully written review by Extraordinary582232.
The best hotel we've ever stayed in
We had very high expectations of this hotel, and Wildflower exceeded them in every possible way. The hotel itself was beautiful, with immaculate grounds, views and facilities (especially the jacuzzi and gym) however what really blew us away was the warmth and service we received from all staff members that we encountered. They were the most genuinely warm and hospitable hosts we have yet experienced. Every request, from lighting the fireplace to requests for additional items at breakfast were catered to in the warmest manner. The team preempted what we could possibly need, from bringing me a larger bowl at dinnertime when they subtly noticed that my soup was overflowing, to offering to bring tennis gear down the courts for us when we returned from our walk so we wouldn't have to come back to the main building. The quality of food was outstanding during every meal and we couldn't fault a single item. The buffet breakfasts were varied and all items were extremely well prepared. The dinners were amongst the best meals we've had. We were on our honeymoon, and the hotel provided some thoughtful gestures to help us celebrate the occasion. From the moment we were picked up by the hotel chauffer in Chandigarh, to the moment we left the hotel, we felt exceptionally well looked after. Following our stay at Wildflower Hall, we went on to stay at both the Leela Palace in Delhi and the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai followed by a luxury resort in the Maldives, and we truly felt that the quality of food, rooms/facilities but most importantly service, was by far the best at Oberoi. We would absolutely love to come back!
A wonderful relaxing end to a touring holiday in India. The staff were very efficient and friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure everything was perfect. The menu was extensive and all the food was made to order, there was also attention to dietary requirements. The views from the terrace towards the Himalayas were very special.
Opulent and very friendly
Stayed here during a short break in Shimla. It is a fair distance outside Shimla in a stunning elevated position with a lovely dining terrace with a breathtaking view of the mountains with the snowclad Himalayas as a backdrop. The room was first rate and beautifully presented. My only negative was that as a large man the bath was a little short. The staff were gracious and attentive and the dining experience was very good indeed. Really liked the way the menu was priced with main courses complete with side dishes. For such class, the food was very well priced. Also liked the no individual tipping policy with the opportunity to leave an overall cash gratuity at the end of the stay. Would really highly recommend this hotel.
A total joy
In my review if the Oberoi Cecil in Shimla I wrongly included a photo of the marvellous chef at Wildflower Hall, apologies chef, but this way you get two mentions! Wildflower Hall is simply stunning. Our view of the foothills of the Himalayas was breathtaking, I could hardly tear myself away from the window. The service was wonderful and we took the picnic at the peak experience which my husband said was the best birthday present he has ever had! The pool and jacuzzi are fabulous, the food and service are fabulous, I am running out of adjectives, but suffice it to say our return trip is already in the diary.
