Hotel Woodville Palace

Overview

Tucked away from the hubbub of vehicular traffic and pedestrians of Shimla, the four-acre complex of Hotel Woodville Palace transports you into fairy tale surroundings of a charming cottage-like mansion in a clearing of forested woods. Tiered gardens that come alive with hundreds of flowers in season add to the magic of the setting.

Originally the home of the Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Army in 1866 and then acquired by His Highness Maharaja Bhagvat Sinh of Gondal State as a gift for his daughter Rani Leila Ba of Jubbal State, the Woodville Palace Hotel has a rich past.

Through the years, it has seen some transformations but its royal past lives on in its interiors even today � along with the descendants of the Royal bloodline (a part of the palace has been retained by the royal family for their personal residence, and the rest is open to the public as a heritage hotel).

Life-size portraits of the royal family, massive trophies of traditional hunts by the royal family and the finest of tapestries, furnishings and object d� art adorn the common public areas like the reception, lounge, dining hall and the bar.

Guests are accommodated in a lovely collection of 31 rooms and suites set across two wings of the palace � the Palace Wing and the Heritage Wing. Persian Carpets, century-old lithographs and the finest of teakwood, ebony and rosewood furnishings adorn the rooms; however, no two rooms are alike, making each stay a unique experience in itself.

For dining, guests are invited to dine in the Imperial Banquet Hall, which has been transformed into a formal dining hall. Alternatively, they can enjoy the mesmerizing ambience of the House of the Rising Sun, a garden restaurant with glass walls and a rooftop that keeps the rain and insects out but offers amazing views of the surrounding bamboo and deodar forests.

Other facilities at the Hotel Woodville Palace include a Hollywood Bar and a travel desk.
