Was there at this place last month with my wife and a few friends. It was a last minute planned trip and hence we were not too sure about how this Home Stay would turn out. But it was a fabulous experience and overall an excellent place to stay. The place is overlooking the valley and hence offers a good view, has a dedicated cook with whom you can decide your choice of meals and is a very well maintained property.

First the place looked very deserted but once we checked in and explored the bungalow got comfortable ...the view from the balcony is amazing, we had booked the bungalow hence had no disturbance.

The care taker Mr.Das was very helpful and was always ready to serve.

Had great time with my family and friends.

Room Tip: The ground floor is not up to the mark, go for top floor only.

1) Clean bedsheets, towels etc were not provided. Blankets are smelly.
2) The place is not maintained properly. There is only one maintenance staff taking care of the whole place. Obviously he is unable to handle the things. And he is not prompt in taking action on user complaints.
3) There is no approach road to the place. With a taxi driver it took 2 hours to locate the place. There is not even a board on the facility mentioning the name of the place.
4) Website mentions kitchenette as part of amenities. There one small cooking place common to all rooms. It is so dirty that its not fit to be used for cooking. At the time of our check-in it was full of dirty utensils.
5) Complementary breakfast was part of the package. However the only maintenance staff who is available at the facility knows to cook only 1 vegetarian dish. People cant be expected to eat one dish everyday for their complete vacation time.

A place like this which doesn't even provide basic hygiene is really not fit for 2500 rupees per night. This is cheating the customers with their money and vacation time.

As explained to the customer that it was 'Bharat Bandh' day when he reached.

The laundry didn't come in time coz no transport were available on that day, but we managed to get it before night.

initially the customer had booked the entire top floor but later had cancelled 1 room and we gave 100% refund, by understanding that the customer is very demanding we did not offered the rest rooms available in the bungalow to other guests.

The customer enjoyed the whole bungalow by paying for a single room for rest 3 days and still complaints.

We clearly mentioned and had explained that it's a home stay bungalow with basic amenities.

This Panchgani property is so well placed that for a someone who loves the hills, its a treat. the view is perfect..the sight of the valley and the river really makes ur trip worth. This property like its chain in Dapoli and Malvan is aesthetically done, least damage to the purse and the best available for what you spend. Good housekeeping and food and well behaved people.
