Woodville Palace

Hotel Woodville palace has a history dating back to 1866 when Sir William Mansfield, Commander-in-Chief of the imperial army became the first resident of the charming estate. The palace was reconstructed in 1938 by the Rana of Jubbal when hundreds of expert artisans were brought from far and wide to ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship. Kanwar Udai Singh opened a part of the mansion as a guest house in 1977 and today, the palace is one of the finest places to stay in Shimla.

Located at 7000 feet near the heart of Shimla, the ‘Queen of The Hills ', Woodville Palace is the Kohinoor on this queen’s crown. Stepping into the impeccable Woodville Palace of the Royal family of Jubbal is like stepping into a time machine where one is transported to the British Raj of the 1930’s. The palace is adorned with multi level rose gardens and lawns. It is also considered a gateway to lesser-known and equally spectacular hill stations of Kufri and Chail.

Woodville Palace is spread over 4 acres of lush greenery and enveloped by towering deodar and pine forests.serving as a backdrop, Woodville Palace is built in the style of an English Country Manor and houses thirty-one rooms. The rooms are furnished imperiod style of the 1930’s and beautifully capture that time for its guests. Each room has a separate theme and no two rooms are decorated alike.

The lawns of woodville were full of fun and activity for over a week.
