I and my husband visited Mahabaleshwar on 13th April 2013. It was an impromptu visit. The hotel is an old bunglow with very unique antique furnishings in the lobbies and the dining hall. It gives you a feeling of home stay. So, if you want to experience the modern-common-hotel type atmosphere: Not for you!!
However, the staff is very hospitable. Food is awesome and is served with lots of love and respect. Rooms and washrooms are neat and clean with seating areas outside every room, where we enjoyed our morning tea and late night tea :) ........... Very close to the market- walking distance......... small playroom- you can play table tennis, carom and badminton in the big lawn that they have. All in All--- A very good experience :)
