We visited Shimla in May 2017 with family. One of the best hotel stays ever. Woodville is a great heritage hotel, the place takes you back in time to 1940s with the architecture, hall and rooms of historic photos of the royal families of Shimla, location is good near Raj Bhavan, few minutes drive to all places in Shimla, sparing...

If you really want to visit a hotel in a time warp and experience what it would have been like to live in the 1930s then his place is for you The place has covered a lot of its original flooring with linoleum that looks about 1960s and is dark and dull The staff are all male with not a...

I like the property in terms of its openness and its heritage !! The rooms are just about ok and the bathrooms are disappointing. The breakfast reasonably good & also the food overall is not too bad. The staff is good but the hotel needs a good professional management. The lawns, facade needs an uplift. Overall for the price you...

Located in Sanjauli, a five kilometre drive from the city centre, this is away from the general hustle and bustle of the regular Shimla. As you walk in through the doors of Woodville Palace, a part of the WelcomHeritage initiative by ITC, you'll feel you have reached a different world.An old world, that you have read about in books or...

It's a lovely , rustic place, giving a colonial raj feel. The kids enjoyed exploring around. Staff is hospitable. But the place is in need of upkeep. Old photos scattered around on all walls but look as though no one has dusted them in days. I think they need more staff for just upkeep. U can even practise archery in...

As my car approached the entry gates of Woodville, I felt I have arrived in the era of British Raj, when Shimla was the summer capital. Intricately manicured lawns, the tall trees and the fresh breath of air of Shimla, which has no pollution keeps inviting me back to this place. Woodville Palace has around 30 rooms and we got...

A beautiful building in a beautiful setting. Like being in a 1920s movie. Room was good size and amenities were fine especially when we found out how to control the aircon (very hot) Staff were friendly. Not many food choices especially in buffet and the dining room was very cold. Reasonable walk into town. Best part was the setting.
