We had booked a room which overlooked the garden and the valley, but due to the trees, our view wasn't as good. Food is ok, but bring food with you just to be safe. Overall, it's a nice hotel, and if you want to visit Kolhapur-Panhala, then this hotel seems to be a decent choice.

It is really a pleasant surprise nestled in valleys of panhala. Excellent location, nice food, beautiful property.The best part is less of commercialisation, Though it has its own disadvantages. May be its far from Mumbai and hence hidden..

The layout of the superior rooms is absolutely great which are spacious and also have a patio, we also spent a night in one of their cheaper rooms but the experience was not upto the mark. They serve a good layout of food varieties for lunch and dinner which is absolutely a must as the chef often includes a dish... More

I have been hearing a lot about Valley view Grand and its location at Panhala fort for quite some time. So, when we planned to go to Panhala last minute, We decided to take our chance to drop in at Valley View and see if the booking is available. Fortunately, being off-season, we got the room immediately. They have a... More

Let me start with the booking, I connected with the management to get the rates availability etc and we agreed to book with 50% as advance. Next day they called me to tell that the booking could be confirmed only when I pay 100%. Even after I reminded them about the conversation they took 100% for bookings. This is unprofessional...

The resort is beautiful and offers scenic view of the panhala valley. The food was excellent but found it quite expensive. You don't have much options with food around panhala. The management should provide good MAP package. Panhala is better option to lonavala.
