We stayed there for 3 nights in March 2015. Mahabaleshwar is a surprisingly lovely place when the tourist season is low, as it was in March. The Fountain Hotel is charming in a clunky, Indian way. Not one of your architectural masterpieces, but clean, spacious and very green. The food (our package included all meals) was very delicious indeed. Supremely... More

One of the oldest and by far the best stay hotels in Mahabaleshwar, the Fountain hotel commands a location and a view that only a few others can boast of. It is located right at the edge of Koyna valley and commands breathtaking views of the valley and mountain ranges beyond. Yet, its proximity to the central market gives you... More

Visited with family and found the property to be really well maintained. There was enough space to roam about and separate play areas for kids were highlights. A table-tennis setup and carrom-board are enough to keep you occupied on a sunny afternoon. The staff sets up movies in the theatre room as well in case you get bored. Room service... More

The hotel is situated away, from the hustles and bustles of the market, but still is within a walking distance from it. The breathtaking view of the valley is amazing and the calmness is serene. One can even walk to Wilson Point from the hotel as it is also within 15 mins walking distance. The rooms are spacious, but expensive.... More

They charged us Rs 4000/ day. However room was very small and congested. Food was also limited in choice. The property is good but we guess we got less value for money as in mahabaleshwar, good rooms are available at this price. Not a very kid friendly place as well.

While the property itself is massive, it has clearly seen better days. Remains popular amongst the people who visit it quite often. Gives easy access to the market. The food is vegetarian and is undeniably excellent.
