We recently spent 3 nights at the Woodville Palace and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. As it was pre-Christmas the hotel was quite cold as they don't have heating in corridors or proper heating in the rooms. But the beds are very warm and surprisingly (for India) quite comfortable.
The heating was inadequate and only consisted of a small 2 bar heater from the 60's. It remained on 24hrs a day and would be my only criticism, they need to invest in something better.
We were shown a couple of rooms initially which didn't suit and were then moved into room 101 beside reception which was gorgeous, a large corner room with a lounge area.
Lovely staff, very friendly and some of the best and cheapest food in Shimla!!
The hotel is roughly 10-15 mins walk (and fairly level) to The Mall and so in a great location. I'd happily stay there again but perhaps in a warmer period.
