“Was let down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

My review is more for the so famous Gujrati Thali that this hotel boasts about.... I have had their thali before and loved it but yesterday was complete let down... The food was below standard and the service was poor. The waiters were never around and made us feel that they were doing us a favaour by serving us... Was really upset..

Their service is good, but the location and value for the room is not worth. There are better spots in Lonavala, like Pavana Dam which has an amazing view and the price is half compared to Chandralok.

This is a great hotel just outside the ST station and very close to Railway Station. The hotel is in main market area.

The rooms are clean and neatly decorated. The rooms are specious. The service is prompt and staff is very courteous. This hotel is strictly vegetarian. Gujarathi food is pretty good. We found breakfast is also good.

There is plenty of parking available.

The only downside is that the rooms do not have any view.

Overall if you are looking for a convenient and decent hotel in Lonavala, then Hotel Chandralok is an option.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are better

We had a wonderful monsoon vacation at Chandralok. The hotel was a stone throw away from the railway station and is quite close to the main market place - Prime location. So we could go out on walks even late in the night. The room was clean and breakfast spread(strictly veg) was good. Downside - The rooms were quite small. There is a nice sitout space provided near the reception where you can just relax in the evenings. They also have a swing where you can sit and relax. Reception staff were friendly.

Although there are a lot of hotels in Lonavala, most of them are overpriced as compared to the facilities they offer. However, this place is one of the few VFM (Value for Money) hotels available. The hotel is located close to bus stand and hence easily accessible. Rooms are basic but clean and provide all amenities. Being a pure veg hotel, for lunch there is thali which is really good and the service is prompt. Overall, a good place to stay for a day or two without pinching your pocket!!!

Room Tip: The premium rooms are better as compared to the executive or deluxe rooms; so if you don't mind...

Location : Located right opposite to the Lonavala ST stand, in heart of city. Good parking facility as well.
Rooms : The standard room we booked met all our expectations in terms of amenities and cleanliness. The TV and the bathroom fittings were excellent. Another positive factor was the round the clock availability of hot water. Only shortcoming was the fact that the room was quiet small in size.
Food : Excellent in every way. We had their Gujarathi thali which was top notch ( Rs 280 on weekend). Also had their breakfast ( included in the tariff) which was quite satisfactory in terms of taste and variety.
Service : Another area where Chandralok excels itself ! The service was exemplary and the staff /management were courteous in every way.
Tariff : At Rs 2500 per night ( breakfast included) one of the reasonable hotels in Lonavala /Khandala
