“Simple and quaint : satisfied soul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Travelled in a group for a weekend break. Woods villa resort is a quaint, quietly nestled away from the main town of ranikhet. The approach to this resort is very good and the property itself is strategically located facing the vast Valley. The rooms are spacious and give a splendid view of the beautiful Valley.

Food is average, but they try their best to satisfy you. Management is Very friendly and takes care or your needs. We went during off season, and the management was nice enough to provide everything we wanted.

We recommend this resort for a nice stay.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with friends

As we were looking for a peaceful place to visit, we found Ranikhet as an appropriate location for the same. We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed nature’s beauty. Resort is located far from crowd. We stayed in room no.211 and views from room were really exotic and tell about real beauty of nature.
Rooms were not very expensive. Rooms were very clean and spacious and uninterrupted service was provided from staff. Staff was friendly specially the manager.
In our budget it was the best place to keep our selves away from madding crowd.

I was looking for a quite place to go with my wife and I came across Woodsvilla resort. Its away from main Ranikhet about 10 km on a hill so has very natural surroundings. The rooms have a view of the Himalayas and valley. We were lucky to get the view of snow capped Himalayas as the sky was clear.
The staff was very courteous and humble in their behavior. In the restaurant they even served us food on the table in spite of the buffet. The food was reasonably good. The rooms were spacious and ideally maintained. Don't forget to take your walking shoes the resort is built on a hill terrain.
Altogether I enjoyed my stay with my family and would recommend to people who want to rejuvenate themselves from busy lifestyle.

This review is for Woodsvilla residency, which is also their property. its few minutes away from the resort. the only negative is , that its very FAR in a secluded place. its 12 km away from Ranikhet. rooms are nice and spacious, these are one bedroom apartments. Food is good, quantity is sufficient. the only drawback, is they do not have a kitchen, hence food comes from the resort and you cannot order anything after 9 PM.
Staff is very helpful and polite.
A good place to stay if you want to stay away from phone calls and what ap :)

We spent 3 nights at this resort from 14th June till 17th June. This resort is best in terms of view it provides from room's balcony or restaurant. In my opinion, this seems to be best choice in Ranikhet as it provides magnificent view. We also had a look on Windsor Lodge Heritage property, there rooms are much better than Woodsvilla but doesn't provide good view, also much costlier than woodsvilla. Both resorts don't provide good landscaping gardens etc. Here are point-wise review:

1. View is amazing.
2. Staff is good, room service is fast. Infact one of staff member took us to sun-set point by tracking 200m. I think his name is Vijender or Virender, very nice person.
3. Food: Food is good, but variety is less, dinner is better than b/f. B/f can be improved by providing some more good options.
4. Himalaya Peaks: Himalaya Peaks were not visible due to Haze, travelers are recommended to visit Ranikhet from October to March.

Summary, If you are looking for luxury hotel then this hotel is not for you. There are not many options in Ranikhet, Queens Meadows looks better from luxury point of view but you will have to track 700m to reach there. Choose Windsor Lodge if you want better rooms but stay here, if you want to enjoy the beauty!!

Room Tip: All rooms are valley facing!

Its an awesome place to visit since the resort is having a very fine location .The whole area was very calm and quiet.What I liked the best was the hospitality shown by the staff in the resort.Dining was Also Good.The Baywindows of the spacious rooms gave a very clear view of the Himalayas.Overall it was a memorable and “paisa vasool” experience.
