Family holiday in July
Have been to Woodville Palace Hotel many times earlier as well but was disappointed this time. The rooms we got were quite spacious but the paint etc was peeling off on the walls. The geyser wasn't working initially & the drainage in one of the bathrooms was also defective. The floor got flooded after a bath. The staff was courteous overall, except the chef, who refused to take our dinner order & insisted we have the buffet! Eventually we got our order once the manager "requested" the chef to oblige. But the food in all meals (including the dinner & breakfast) was delicious!! The exterior of the hotel is as beautiful as ever but the upkeep and maintenance needs to be worked upon.

Great staff, great view, convenient location
There is too much to say about this place. To get there the first time it is complicated but after you understand Shimla's distribution gets easy to get in and to get out from this hotel. It has wonderful gardens, wonderful historic pictures and the property is history by itself. The staff was very nice and polite, specially the tourist guide provided by the hotel, he is a very wise man and extremely educated. The hotel by itself need renovations """urgently""", it is a shame that a jewel like this is falling apart. Something unacceptable was to find our room dirty on arrival, we were close to leave but we decide to stay because the staff take care immediately of our complains.

Woodville palace
It was ok, the hotel is difficult to locate and despite being a palace lacks the pomp and glory of one. The walls of the room was affected by the rains and showed signs of damp. The staff was courteous however food options were not many specially in snacks. As Shimla was cold we expected central heating however that was not the case and separate room heaters were kept in the rooms. If you are late for breakfast, you may not get enough left

Good Hotel...Away from traffic ..noise.
Hotel staff are friendly and pleasing, Good food...but the rooms allotted to us (210&211)are not well maintained...particularly the wash rooms.We were informed that the Rajah of Jubbal dynasty who owns this property is also residing in the same premise...even then the focus on cleanliness is insufficient.

A Feel of the past
We visited Shimla in April and had a wonderful vacation, with the weather pleasantly cool. We stayed at Woodville Palace on the first floor of the new wing, and it was an experience taking us back to a forgotten past. Wirh polished wooden floors and walls covered with pictures from its rich past, it gave us an opportunity to experience its history. The deluxe room was very spacious and clean, however the bathroom was a notch below and could do with some upgrading of the hot water and other amenities. overall it is very well maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The Hollywood bar is a nice place to have drink and the food is excellent. We were surprised to find that there are no rickshaws or taxis freely available in shimla, but this was not a issue as all the main attractions are on the Ridge or around it. Its about a 20 minute walk from Woodville palace to the Ridge, and the walk itself is very picturesque. The walk back was not too fun after walking the whole day, and wished Woodville was a bit closer to Mall road. one thing that we'd like to note here is that on weekends, the hotel opens a buffet and closed the Ala Carte Menu, which didnt leave any option for guests, specially for dinner as you couldn't take a walk back to the Mall road without any vehicle at night. We were on B/B basis and on a budget. however, once we spoke to the management thwy obliged and it qas a happy ending after all!
