Shimla in it's glory
The was a long due trip, as my better half had dreamt of going to this hotel for years and we couldn't make it earlier as our child was too young. This also turned out to be a perfect getaway as it started snowing heavily the moment we reached the hotel. It has a very gothic and royal british feel to the entire place. The ambience, background music, decor, the colors and paintings reminded of the the luxury and royalty in which the Britisher officers lived in India, and boy did they have one helluva time. The hotel was previously the mansion of a British era officer which was later transformed. The view of the himalayas from the restaurant is breathtaking and unbeatable (highlight of the day) Food is amazing. Rooms were slightly on the smaller side. Very few rooms with balconies. They have a outdoor jacuzzi with hot water overlooking the mountains (2nd highlight). The place doesn't have too much to do for children as kids were only allowed from 3 years back. Also the place doesn't have a very good library. We flew back from shimla using pawan hans to chandigarh which was much better than what we expected.

We visited the wildflower hall for three days stay inJanuary 2020... we are a family of four with two kids - 8 & 4 years old. It started snowing as we neared our hotel. My first snow experience and it was magical... the resort was amazing dressed in white. We booked a mountain view room and the room was really cosy and comfortable. The view from our room was breathtaking. The hospitality and food was really good. We enjoyed the hot water jacuzzi while it was snowing.. the kids had fun playing in the snow. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We will definitely come back again.
Outstanding Hotel Outside Shimla
This is an outstanding Hotel situated about 30 mins from Shimla, located on top of the hill. It is one of the best Resort hotels i have stayed. The hotel has all the facilities,including the pool, spa, games and not to forget the infinity Jaccuzi. I was here in Feburary and snowing, it was gorgeous. The food and service is also outstanding. It was just Superb.
Winter Wonderland Wildflower!
If there is any place in the world I'd long to be on Christmas Eve, it's Wildflower Hall. We were given a preview by the invitation which said Carol singing at 6pm, dinner 8pm onwards... In true Christmas spirit almost everyone gathered for the Carol singing. We all sat excitedly with Santa caps and sipped on warm Muddled Wine or hot chocolate while the in house staff sang with glee. They gave us the lyrics to sing along and children went up to sing in the choir. At turndown, they left Christmas cookies filled in a Santa sock hung at each door. The Christmas Gala Dinner was the most elaborate buffet we've ever seen... The most memorable experience was having the barbeque treats at the live counter in the garden area when the temperature was -2°C and we merrily enjoyed standing near the sigrees while the Chefs pampered us and cooked with ease in freezing temperatures. Prashant saw to it that we tried it all. It wasn't a white Christmas, but Poornima insisted and sent us to Narkanda (thank you very much) to play in the snow. It's a 2hour scenic drive and totally worth it. No points for guessing what we will be wishing for next Christmas...:)
Beautiful Hotel and location
As ever with Oberon Hotels a warm welcoming from the GM Gaurav Issar and staff. Visited as the global virus was gaining a foothold, nice to see we were temperature tested and plenty of sanitizer available in the hotel. Set in beautiful grounds with views of the Himalayas on a clear day. Room was lovely (mountain view) very well appointed. After a long day travelling from Delhi (train, car and toy train) used the room service which was excellent both in taste and presentation......lovely Sula Servingon Blanc to finish the day off. Excellent tour of Shimla town, Himalayan Mounterneering Centre and Cable ride to the Monestry overlooking Shimla. Used the Spa for a 2 hour relaxing massage which again was worth the price. Swimming pool and a brave dip in the outside jacuzzi. Awoke to snow on three mornings, great view from breakfast room over the mountains. Both breakfast and evening meals were again very good, local Indian dishes enjoyed 😁. Thanks to all for the birthday cake and very special dessert. I would recommend this Oberon which is slightly out of town compared to the 2 within town, if for nothing else but the fantastic views. Thanks to all at the hotel and all the best in this difficult time.
