What's Good: Woodville is a 15 minute pleasant walk from the Mall road. The hotel, a former palace , exudes an aristocratic air. The exteriors are well maintained. The interiors, however, are grim and in a state of disrepair. The wooden tiles need replacement . The toilet had a tile missing . The quality of food and service is far from being Upto the standard and expectations. The quality of bread, and egg preparations are average. Besides, the room service is very reluctant to serve food in the room. They keep on insisting to eat their 'buffet' breakfast and dinners. All in all, if you looking for a very good experience, At the price, you might be disappointed.

What's Good: Fantastic experience with family, staff is very hospitable. They arranged our trip to Narkanda which was much better than a routine trip to Kufri. The food quality was good as well. The lighting in rooms can be better along with better amenities in the restrooms.

What's Good: Good property, bad service, average food. Pros - proximity to the mall (15-20 mins walk), away from the crowd Cons - bad service, staff never smile :), rooms are in bad condition (guess they are renovating), breakfast was really bad, room service food was just average

My visit to Shimla on May end was disastrous due to extreme watershortage and poor hotel choice. I stayed at welcomeheritage Woodville Palace at Rajniwas area, chotashimla about 2 km from mall road. The hotel as mentioned is a heritage property with few rooms. The staff were all looking to be local to the hotel-palace and were very high-headed and arrogant. Room service is extremely poor, food is available in dining hall mainly but only till 11 pm with fixed meal hours. There is nothing for kids extra except normal meals and ice cream. Mall road is 20 min walk, no vehicles allowed unless you have your vehicle. It is pretty isolated from family vacation point. The rooms are equipped with a heater/AC which does not work leaving you to sweat in a hot summer night. My child got heat exhaustion as you can't open windows. Food was good and home type but after 2 days you will be bored with same food choice. Chinese was horrible by the way. Overall hotel highly recommended for honeymoon goers. Good for middle aged couple who want peace and are coming without kids. Not recommended for family with kids.

I stayed here in August 2017 for couple of weeks. I was given a beautiful room and I felt very comfortable. The property and its garden is very beautiful. The people at reception were very helpful including the drivers who were there to help me whenever I needed any help. The only issue that I had here was the food options. I think dining and food is the area where this hotel needs to improve.

A lovely , friendly hotel. The food was good as was the service. Old fashioned and in need of refurbishment! However, comfortable and peaceful surroundings within easy reach of the centre of Shimla, by foot or for those who need it, by taxi. I would certainly stay there again

A lovely looking hotel but the decor is rather tired. Shimla was cool after our tour of Rajasthan. And the journey to our rooms from reception was down some rather windy (breezy) corridors. The staff seemed rather indifferent to our presence at this hotel, especially given the time we had been travelling....since 6.30 that morning and it was 6.00pm in the evening....and the staff at other hotels. It all seemed too much trouble. The hotel is quite large and we arrived to notice a large party of British people staying too. Although they did stay within their own group...which was easy to do in the surroundings. Lost of photographs of famous people and royalty as I understand the hotel is owned by a Maharajah and once (1940;s) visited by film stars etc. There s a bar which is quite small but does serve Gin....no tonic though...they ran out. The food is interesting. There s a menu but it does seem small for the hotel. The omelettes were ruibbery and uninteresting. The other foods...Indian ...were quite pleasant and yet I had tasted better. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff forgot us on a number of occasions so I don't think I will be going back but it does have a pretty garden to sit in with lovely views.
