“homely hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

It was 2 in the night when we reached panchagani and after scouting for hotels managed to get in this hotel by waking up the sleeping staff! This hotel scored brownie points by first giving us rooms this late! Very clean rooms and sound sleep atmosphere..one can spend a good after dinner stroll and amazing for great conversations with your companion! Neatness is defitely a virtue here and the food room service very good. Try it if you can shell out 1.5k per night..worth it!

Room Tip: away from the road rooms..very green view from balcony!

This a very typical parsi family run heritage hotel in Panchgani. If you are looking for a very luxurious conventional resort with loads of amenities and frills....then this is not the place for you. This is a lovely little heritage property run by a Parsi family where the owners are fully involved in running the place with a limited staff. They personally cook the food, change the sheets etc. It has a very warm and homely touch.

The food is simple but delicious. They serve both veg & non veg food. The room rates usually include all meals and are very resonable. The place and grounds are clean. The hotel has a great valley view from the old block. The old block has the old fashioned rooms which are a bit small but offer you the authentic heritage feel. The rooms have flat screen TV's and hot water but no AC's.

They also have a seperate bloc with a few delux rooms which are large and well equipped.

The overall service is a bit slow paced but very personal & sure! The owners will try and satisfy all your personal requests. You are trasported 50 yers back in time and one should just chill out and enjoy the weather and the traqulity of the place. It is a 10 minute walk from the Panchgani market. It is a great place to vist with friends & family to spend some quality time.

Room Tip: If you are OK with slightly small rooms with no airconditioning then the rooms in the old block are...

If you are looking for a homestay environment, this is a good place. The cottages are 100 year old, and were run as nunnery then, as told by owners. The place has always been run as a hotel by the Parsi owners 3rd gen now. The place gives you space and time to do your own thing, stroll around the property, sit under the tree, or just watch the sun set over the hills. Its truly a place when you do not want to do anything.
The rooms are basic yet clean, food good (for non veg) and service prompt by 2 young boys who eagerly appear on press of a bell. At Rs 1250 (for basic) and Rs 1550 (for delux) per person for stay and 3 meals, this is indeed good value for money. Call the owners directly for bookings.
If luxurious furnishings, furniture, air conditioned environment and a la carte food choices is what is essential for you, this is not the place for you. Yeah pure non veg may not like the food much.
The location is quiet good, with market walking distance from the hotel. The owners are nice and take personal interest.
For the quaint property, lovely wooded surroundings, golden sunset views I will go there again.

Room Tip: Ask for Delux room one with a private portico. There is only one.

Guys & Gals...
I went with my wife,bro & 6 month old daughter for 2 nites on 26th April 2012
Straight to the point...

1. Valve for money... 1850 Rs per person/per day , deluxe room & 3 times meal) ..... cause food was different ( Parsi style ) & prepared with care keeping in mind that families are around.

2. Very Prompt Service ( Room Boy shall be at ur doorstep at a push of the calling bell).

3.Rooms & Bathrooms are clean !!!!

4. You shall never be bothered for this & that from the reception........the Room is all yours.

Suggestion: Do not expect Luxury type environment.
You should have a car so you can travel around with ease as & when required.

Areas of Improvement: Hertaige type Cottages can be repaired eg: coloured so it looks more presentable & the Old design Houses take you back to the old era of living.

Always advisable for a get away from the MUMBAi heat !!!

Room Tip: Deluxe Room for that extra comfort !!!!

This is our first visit to panchgani and we were nt sure on where to stay. So we tried finding places based on trip advisor ratings. Thats whr we came across mount view.

The standard rooms are clean and give a heritage feel. The food is good too and has a parsi touch which may be bcos the owners are parsi (i assume they r). I think the best part is tht its run by its owners and so they take good care of their guests.

I highly recommend this place :)

I visited this hotel in end of june. The hotel view is very nice to enjoy and chill with not much to do there. The place is walking distance from the market..The interior of the rooms are quite nice and cozy and hygienic bathrooms....
They provide authentic parsi food and the breakfast was good with scrambled eggs and french toast. They also provide u bed tea whch includes milk toast wth butter whch is just awsme to have with rains hammering on the roof and fog outside.

Overall it was a nice experience. We had booked regular rooms which could accomodate 5 of us. No tv which was actually a bliss.

Room Tip: valley facing rooms are preffered.. awesome view.

Had stayed here as well a month or so back, the most awesome sunset you can ever see anywhere in Panchgani. The area surrounding the hotel is also very tranquil. The room we stayed in had a veranda as well, and the morning tea was brilliant. Had to order food a little earlier than expected, but was one of the best meals we had..authentic Parsi cuisine.

Room Tip: If you want to experience old world stay, then this one is it.
