It was Kareena Kapoor's wedding scene from 3 Idiots that was shot in this beautiful heritage property.  HolidayIQ Traveller Ajay Ranna says, “A very classical old 1930s built house converted into a hotel some years ago. Convenient setting, slightly above the town, with pleasant gardens and nice old trees. If you prefer old style colonial charm combined with a relaxed peaceful setting, then this is the place for you. Shimla has expanded into a bustling town so it is a great relief to find Woodville both tranquil and majestic. I liked the stay overall in this classy villa.”
