We went to Glenview with great expectations since we saw some decent reviews on trip advisor and some great photos on their websites. The experience was no where near the presentation.
The place is quite far from the main road and is surrounded by not lush but dense forest. The rooms were very basic, just enough for two people. The beds and bed sheets were not clean and the chairs given in the room kept us on the edge by threatening to break at any point of time. Expect no frills at the toilets. No soap, no towel, we were lucky that we carried it since we reached the place late evening and the near by shop is at least 5 kms away (If not more).
The bath rooms were also very basic and was about to break down if handled with some force. Not to mention the crawlies and insects which infested the place. Can't blame the owners for this but insects kept disturbing us through out the night.
The one highlight of the place was the food. It was not very expensive but it was yummy. The preparation is mainly south Indian and there are no other choices available. But everything right from the morning coffee to dinner has a touch of great cook.
Though we were turned off by the ambience, lack of cleanness, nice rooms and bath rooms, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They were quick to provide the service, though there was no telephone connection between the rooms and we had to go to the office room to make orders.
There was a nice place for camp fire and barbecue which we enjoyed.
To sum it up all, there was nothing to write home about the resort. We were quite disappointed since all of us have been to jungle resorts before. The entire ambience was dark and little sad. This place is ideal for a bachelor party or for an all boys trip. Do not come here to relax and have nice get away. Also not recommended if you are traveling with family.
