The whole point of going to Panchgani for me and my family is to get out of Mumbai city life and breathe the clean unpolluted air in quiet and sylvan surroundings! We do NOT want the fancy trappings of a 'mod' hotel or the same air-conditioned recycled air we get in the city. And so we chose MAIDSTONE! Obscurely tucked... More

Virjee's Maidstone given me some of the best memories which will be cherished for a lifetime. Right from the hospitality of Mrs Gita, to the ambience and the simplistic yet comfy and beautiful rooms. Everything was simply awesome. One most important attraction which has bought me here is the FOOD. The food is just deliicious and finger licking good...!!! The... More

Dear Traveler friend who is reading this ...get ready for a candid review. Maidstone is NOT a hotel. So don't have any standard expectations like a mechanical smiling receptionist...cheerful bell boys waiting to be tipped!!!.and quiet efficiency of any-star hotel...it is a home or rather like your own weekend place maintained by a caretaker. Due to being a home and... More

Well I am writing this in deep disappointment, because of the treatment met out to us . Last time we had a much better experience with Mohini aunty. Thats one of the reasons we came back. Else we generally stay at Dhun Heta who has a beautiful property and extremely warm treatment, which is how a homestay should be. Well... More

Maidstone is a homestay located off the main road of Panchgani and a couple of minutes down from the bustle and din of the town centre. Maidstone was the family home of the Virjee family, and currently it is managed owned and operated by Gita Choksi, who lives on the premises with her aunt and cousin. The main building at... More

Just back from a weekend at Maidstone. It’s a good property with beautiful view. However extremely disappointed with the service and hospitality given the moneys they charge. When we asked for rotis at dinner, we were served bread and were told by Vinod the house-boy that rotis are limited @ dinner. How can you have a limit of 2 rotis... More

We (two of us) landed up at Maidstone purely basis existing Tripadvisor reviews and the place lived up to its reccos! We drove down from Mumbai on a Saturday afternoon looking for a quite weekend at Panchgani and that what we got. The town itself seems transforming from quaint to bustling. But Maidstone will more than make up for it.... More

If you're looking for a perfect getaway from the bustle of Mumbai, look no further than the quiet little town of Panchgani. And there is absolutely no better place to stay in Panchgani than Maidstone. It has a gorgeous view, delicious food & comfortable lodging - You couldn't ask for any more. The place is a throw-back to the British... More

To write a review of perfection reeks of sacrilege of sorts. So forgive me. But if as a child you read books by the venerable Enid Blyton, about lazy days in the hills, with absolutely truckloads of the good stuff to send past your tonsils at periodic intervals, then look no further. Maidstone is an absolute dream come true, for... More
