“2nd Home...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I had a wonderful time and greatly appreciated the clean comfortable room & the food was delicious. MTDC Holiday Resort is nice place to relax. I had a very nice time.
Ayurveda massage is the impressive thing in the resort...must try
the famous Bombay point (Sunset point) is near from resort.
Thanks for the hospitality.

Room Tip: Stranded rooms are suitable for 2 peoples. all New Slandered category rooms are good. reservation...

We chose this resort by its name, believing MTDC to be descent property chain, but disappointingly this resort had nothing to be called as resort. Location of the hotel was also in some remote lanes. Hotel rooms were all scattered around, with tin shades at roof tops.

We tried room service for dinner, and were shocked to see the kind of room service, as if you ordered a home delivery service from a restaurant. A plastic bag was handed over with a few paper plates and that's it.

Rooms and bathroom were also not so nice.

Keeping in mind, the general idea about MTDC, we had booked a cottage room for two which one of their more expensive options.

The resort is huge, has ample parking and being situated in a forest, has excellent outdoors. Even the rooms and cottages look very pretty from outside.

The cottage room interior however disappointed us. Though large and roomy, it was filled with very old and dusty furniture and was entirely closed off with no outside view. Furthermore the room lighting made the room quite gloomy. Compounded with sound of rains, wind, some insects and possibility of monkeys lurking outside the room made it a bit of spooky experience - which is an experience in itself. :)

Good only for an economic trip and with families when aiming for a quick stopover.

We took the most expensive option they had - their cottage and just lived through the night since there was nothing else available. The room had dust layered across its wall, ceiling and everywhere possible. The furniture in the room is so old and in such a pathetic condition that it might not sell as junk either. The only bearable options were the 24" flat TV and their renovated bathrooms.
It's sad that despite such a wonderful location and high price, MTDC cannot maintain this to the standards of even a 2 star hotel.
As any government department, it had hordes of staff but still lacks basic maintenance. The staff was evenly courteous may be since after the experience of seeing the room, I went requesting them for everything not wanting to spoil my holiday any more. Even then I was at loss of words when the staff questioned me for requesting an additional pillow when he got me one extra.

Room Tip: Do not opt for the cottages, none is even bearable.

We stayed here for 2 nights in the month of June'11
Mahabaleshwar is a perfect place for those who want to enjoy their holidays in the company of nature and in peace.
MTDC hotel, where i had stayed, is neatly maintained and provides you all the basic facility.

MTDC MAHABALESHWAR,is best suited for stay as its away from the town and surrounded by lush green forests.We enjoyed our long morning walks, viewed awesome view points near the resorts.Food was good and service in general was better.The disturbing factor is we have to depend on private taxis to go to market.or we can walk down 2 km. I suggested MTDC TO RUN A SHUTTLE SERVICE EVERY HOUR/ HALF AN HOUR to market, at least in season ( April to mid June) and organize tours on their own as we are exploited by private taxi drivers who demand exhorbitantly.
Mtdc location is superb.

Room Tip: nothing special. if you want closer to Restaurant book an economy/ family room especially if you do...
