WelcomHeritage Woodville Palace Shimla
Ranked #25 of 117 Hotels in Shimla
Reviewed April 4, 2014

This is one of the most beautiful hotels in Simla, away from the main road, mall area and other major attractions. This heritage property is an epitome of peace and tranquility. Has basic amenities like indoor games (Carom & Table Tennis), decent room service and decent breakfast served. The main mall road area is about 1.5 kms, but the road that connects the mall area to the hotel is pleasantly shaded with tall deonar trees and breath taking views of the valley! I'd recommend this property if you're looking for a get away from the typical city life. Amazing experience!

Room Tip: Pick the rooms on the 1st floor

This is an amazing historic hotel located about 20 mins from The Mall shopping area. The corridors ooze history with all the photographs of famous people who have stayed there. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and it only took a few minutes to resolve any issue we were having. As with all Shimla hotels, there is no central heating, so visiting in February can be a challenge if you are not prepared. The rooms are very cold, but they had given us an electric heater in the room. At night, they provided hot water bottles which help make things cozy. This is not a hotel with all the amenities of a modern 5-star hotel, but it was my favorite hotel of our visit to India. It would be amazing in the summer.

Traveled with my wife in March 2014 to Shimla and we decided to stay in this property for three days. This is the right choice if you are looking for some peaceful quality time. The hotel, being the property of the kings/princes, makes you feel like one of them. The staff members are so well behaved, polite and eager to help. The lobby, the dining room, the whole ambiance is so well maintained. It definitely is like a palace. Only one tip to the management - If they could provide better dining menu. Else this property is just amazing.

The location, the property is just amazing, the rooms, staff everything was above my expectation . This hotel is a heritage hotel and actually it makes u feel so royal .Special mention to the reception staff they are extremely helpful, gentle and nice.
The only thing I believe the hotel can work on is food coz it is just average and living in ur hotel u make the person getting used to everything perfect.:-)
Another detail where I would like to bring your attention is kitchen cutlery hygiene. I don't like to know wat somebody had in the same plate before I did . Please work on that .
Overall it was a wonderful experience .

My sister was visiting from melbourne and we decided at the last minute to drive down to Shimla from Chandigarh for a snowy Christmas. Enroute, we called our dependable source in Shimla & he helped us get a great last minute deal at the Hotel Woodville Palace. We arrived late afternoon at the hotel which is located at a 10 minute walking distance from the mall. The advantage is the ample parking at the hotel which otherwise becomes a hindrance at other hotels in Shimla, for people driving down. The hotel facade is straight out of the English countryside Palaces or as my daughter put it...'Rapunzel's' house. The imposing towers with the pointed roofs and the stone walls form a pretty picture and we spent the afternoons lazing around on the lawns, clicking away post lunch . The Check-in was smooth and the rooms on the first floor, overlooking the parking and trees beyond, seemed a bit dated but were comfortable enough. The room had the regular facilities that all 3-4 star hotels have including a safe, fridge and Tea/coffee counter. The first day we were tired and took a cab to the mall road lift. The next morning, breakfast was well laid out in a beautiful dining area with functional fireplaces. There was sufficient choice of steaming parathas, poori bhaji, sandwiches, eggs to order, juices, tea/coffee etc.

The front-desk arranged for an innova at a 10 minutes notice to Fagu and Kufri with a well informed driver who made the trip all the more enjoyable with information about the region and anecdotes of the popular movies shot in the hotel. The hotel has beautiful corridors lined with photographs of the royal lineage of the Palace including a lounge that displayed tiger and bison heads shot by the predecessors. It gives you a glimpse of the royal heritage and a feeling of living in a royal museum. That evening we decided to walk to the mall and had a great time walking along the ridge and mall road as it was mostly downhill. We spent a memorable 2 days at this beautiful property and will definitely go back again.
