Visited with family in march 19. Hotel is excellent in location away from hustle of shimla main city ,kufri, mashobra hotels . Route to hotel from Narkanda bus stand is superb ,snow on both sides and driving in between... Its located just in between the forest with a small lake at entrance and huge valley view behind resort. I have never seen such a serene place till now. Property is premium and well maintained. Rooms are in huge wooden cottages, neat n clean washrooms. Views are amazing from inside the room. All ameneties to manage cold weather are available. Food is tasty and good in quality. Owner Mr. Rajesh is handling the resort nicely. Staff is also cooperative especially Mr. Vijay. Overall no regret ....

the resort is situated at a place overlooking the snow peaks and a lake nearby. the rooms were marvellous with all amenities and the ambience great. the food was simple but top notch with good good taste the services by the staff was really worth appreciating seeing the cold and the terrain. the bonfire outside and the bukhari in the hall was really which was keeping us going. the owner rajesh was overlooking our stay personally and made us feel at home with comfort. would really love to be back.cheers

Dear guest, Thank you so much for your review. It is important for us to know your experience. The Wilderness is a property that is ideally located with the view of the mighty Himalayas from all the rooms. This indeed is a boon. We take pride in providing you a top notch service and I am happy that our staff did its best to make your stay comfortable. By staying true to our theme 'A home away from home' we make sure everything remains homely and so is the food. Our very loved cook takes full charge of this. I am glad that the ongoing bukhari and bonfire we have spared you with the winter chill and hence you had a delightful stay. Mr. Rajesh with his fueling passion of catering to the guests makes sure that each one of you has memorable stay. as he personally addresses them. We look forward to host you again.

The location of the property is excellent, but from the time of check in only- we were treated so badly- first we were given rooms where there was no attached bathroom- the tarriff charged to us per night per room is 12500/- and no attached bathroom, then after a long fight we were given rooms in the newly constructed part of the resort - they had these room all the time still they offered us such terrible rooms and the owner kept telling us that there is a very roudy group in the newly constructed part of the resort hence I am giving you this accommodation- where as it was completely false there were just four other guests apart from us who were a super friendly and civil and the biggest problem of the place is the rooms are soooo cold- the owner doesn’t have proper hitting

Dear guest, It's been disheartening to read your review. I apologize for not standing up to your expectations. But I would like to clarify certain points made by you. 1.Our tariff is only Rs 7000/ ( as quoted on our website too), surprisingly you have mentioned it as Rs 12,500 per room per night. 2. As for the rooms, we offered you initially suites on the 'quieter side' of the resort so that you would not be disturbed by the group that was supposed to come the next day. Agreed, the guests had not arrived the day you checked in hence their rooms were vacant. And your stay being on the Wilderness for four nights was the matter of consideration to give you rooms that were on the quieter side, so that you might not be disturbed by the large group of guests. 3. We would like to clarify for the guests knowledge that all rooms at the Wilderness have 'attached toilets'. 4. As per your feedback it seems the Wilderness is only running on 4 staff members. It's strange to even think that a property like Wilderness can run on peak new year's season with just 4 helpers! 5.As for the heating, we are well equipped to keep the place warm. 6. To my shock, your feedback on meals, seems such a misfit as well. While you were on the property you were infect enjoying each meal as told by our staff and above all the menu too was being prepared as to your needs even for the other guests staying at the resort at that time. Lastly, apologies on the delayed tea served in the morning of the 1st of Jan, for it was the morning after the New Year's eve. We from the Wilderness hope that you do come again so that we can provide you a better experience!
