“Upto Average... Not Bad but below good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Pretty average hotel; Pretty huge enough with a Lawn and a nice Swimming Pool. 3 buildings consisting of Deluxe, Semi Deluxe and Suite rooms. Not much of difference... apart for the suite rooms. Please note there are no views from any rooms and keeping the windows closed is much advised. The staff was nice and helpful. It is fine for a group stay and to cut a night or two but do not expect any royal treatment... The hotel needs a lot of renovation in terms of its restoration. rest all it is fine. It is centrally located so everything is at walking distance.

Room Tip: You can opt in for semi deluxe rooms as they have a personal balcony with a coffee table...

though the hotel is near to all other hotels, but still the competitiveness is beneath the shelves for this hotel.....they had stopped booking the rooms from internet(as was told by one of their receptionists)....its good for those who just want to roam around in lonavala and come for sleep in the rooms....the rooms are ok in monsoon.....the restaurant (of Purohits) adjoing resort is good which serves only veg food.....you have to wait from night if u directly come to this hotel for room....cos the huge rush is on saturdays and sundays during monsoons...like in all hotels of Lonavala...it has a small swimming pool which can be njoyed with kids....

Room Tip: If family comes then u can have rooms with 05 beds too....

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Had been here twice with friends. We were 6 of us. We were offered a single room option or 2 rooms. The single room option was great as all could stay together. There was only a single toilet in the room but the staff was kind enough to offer the neighboring room which for empty to use. Food is general Indian vegetarian. Nice place if you are on a budget. You can surely bargain when you are striking a deal. Hotel is good for marriage celebrations or company getaways where large number of people need to be accommodated.

Room Tip: Do check the rooms before you actually get 1 allotted. It is an L Shaped hotel with different views...

Firstly the room upkeep is terrible, we changed 4 rooms ( first one the toilet had no bolt, second the toilet door was broken, third the tv was not working , the fourth one which we had to go for had broken window pane in the toilet) . Room service was never on time , each thing had to be conveyed to 5 different people till it was executed, rooms were not cleaned , bedsheets not changed and even the mosquito repellants were reused over and over. We had special request for cold milk for my son which even after being told time and again they never managed to get it .For the price they charge the least we would expect is a fridge in the rooms.The time we were there , a wedding was to take place the next week , for which the preparations went on till 11.00 in the night not to mention the jarring radio noise with the work noise. We had to request 3 times before they stopped. The management exhibits a very callous attitude, when we asked for a suggestion book they gave us a random book and opened upto the last page and said" write here " this really showed us how little they cared about anything. Not even an apologetic look , they stare with a smirk on their face...

Room Tip: Go across to chandralok better rooms ....food is wonderful and lovely service!!!

Stay on the road, under the open sky, or sleep in your car...but do you self a favor and DONOT stay at this pseudo hotel.

We were two families, and had booked 2 Deluxe A. C Rooms. Room 410 and 411. Room 411 was passable but 410 was downright horror- the room was mossed up, had green fungi everywhere and god only knows when it was cleaned!

Upon creating a scene, we were given room 413 which was a shade better.

In 411 the AC was powered- hold your breath- not from the room, but the powerm mains at the ground foor. There was NO hot water - against what was promised to us...and to my utter horror and dismay, they were actually heating up water on Gas Stoves on the staircase of the residential building! With kids running around i cannot imagine a worst case scenario.

The hotel restaurant is pure vegetarian which is ok. So we went out to get non- veg food from the nearby hotels. Accidently we happened to mentioned this to the waiter who had come to clean a broken glass...and lo and behold..We were told that non veg food will not be tolerated in the premise! And to top it all...a person was sent to our rooms to inspect if we were having non veg food!!!

This is the pits of customer service....for 3000 a night, this place is ridiculous....dont bother booking here...its so bad it will put you off Lonavala!

Room Tip: book in advance, book with well known names and see travellers photos and not professional photos of...
