Centrally located, nice spacious rooms (although not as fancy as a 5 star), a comfortable stay. Room service a bit slow but food in the restaurant is good. Quite reasonable although only for members. Good for a family stay- has a non hotel ambience.

We stayed her just for a night -- rooms are very large but amenities are basic. Towels were rough (poor quality), one small soap provided. Grounds very nice especially for walking. Close to City Centre, shopping. Food decent and reasonable. The privately owned restaturant on the premises is good though expensive

The Poona club situated in a nicer corner of Pune has yet to revamp their rooms from the 1980s. Nothing to complain about the cleanliness of the room or bathroom. Just that the moment you enter you know they are old. The bed had bedbugs (or something that chewed through me) in the night. Fortunately we only had to stay... More

A club with their own Cricket grounds in a nice setting off a very busy road in Pune. It's in the process of being modernised. The rooms we had were basic and hadn't undergone the change. They did have air con and ensuite. It is a gated resort and guards were vigilant about what cars are coming and going. The... More

Rooms were clean and so qas the club. Really liked the morning breakfast setup (alacarte). The bathrooms are old and need to be redone. Its certainly not there compared to residency club nearby. Location ia great none the less. Walking distance in some cases.

Be warned this is a venerable old establishment. Go there for its old world charm. The club has its own grounds - great for a brisk daily walk. The card room is packed with bridge players in the evening. We did not expect star comforts and were not disappointed. Room and sheets were clean. The staff were pleasant and not... More

Considering the status symbol of this club, the accomodation is rather poor standard. The rooms are old and shabby and have not been renovated . The ambiance is great - the gardens beautiful and a good meeting spot for friends and family. The food could be improved as well as the service. A very good venue for holding parties and... More

This club is old. The grounds are beautiful and harkens back to colonial times. The main restaurant has a canopy top and overlooks the gorgeously manicured cricket grounds. The tennis courts are also really beautiful. The room itself is super drab: hard beds, dirty and decaying bathroom but there was a really nice flat screen TV with lots of channels.... More

The room where i stayed in was huge with all basic amenities. If i really start looking into the nitty gritty of things, then probably it cannot... More
