Dear Mr Aakash, Thank you for choosing to stay at Brightland and for your positive feedback. Even though we are not officially classified as an 5 star hotel ( neither is any other hotel in Mahabaleshwar), our facilities are beyond the requirements of 5 star properties in India and we have chosen not to take an official classification due to...

It was a very short trip for 17 hours.....so we paid too much. It is quite expensive and no justification for such price wrt services or otherwise. The positive points are good location, nice scenic view, good food, nice pool but jacuzzi was not operational, very big property with lots of seasonal flowerbeds. The attitude to customize package as per... More

Very good place to stay in Mahabaleshwar and especially when you are looking to be in serene and calm place. Good food, good rooms and excellent service. The only issue is their pricing, they are exorbitantly priced.

Dear Sheeba, Thank you for your positive review. I am sorry that you found our resort exorbitantly priced. We maintain our resort in pristine conditions despite the heavy monsoons that we face here and so feel we are appropriately priced. I would like to point out that considering our facilities, which include 4 restaurants, a bar, Mahabaleshwar's only luxury spa... More

We went there for a weekend. The service was pathetic, the staff was so rude that they walk past you when you are talking to them! The food too was pretty bad. Overall I would rather stay home than stay here if my weekend depended on it.

A quaint and picturesque place with a wonderful view of the Valley. We visited in Feb 2014 and booked ourself in the 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms were neat and well kept. Since we had my eight months old son, the hotel provided us with a cradle. Mahabaleshwar can get cold in the nights, so the rooms were provided with... More

Great Food , Good Service and Excellent Location , It is money's worth. Highly recommended but ensure you get good rooms. Rooms such as deluxe rooms must be selected .some of the rooms are not that great. Otherwise a great hotel to spent time Sudeep Paralkar Mumbai and Yesh Mhatre, Seattle USA.
