“Shocks(room/cleanliness/facilities) and Surprises(food)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We ( family) visited this in Sept 2nd week 2013 for 3 days. As lot of people have already commented, we were shocked to see rooms. No doubt , photos on their site are smartly taken to fool people. Rooms were NOT at all what they were shown in pics. As we entered (Royal rooms), we were welcomed by dirty bedsheets, even the replacements weren't better. Mr Sachin the manager on duty was kind person who tried to appease us as much as possible , he even managed to get 3rd replacement for bed sheets and pillow covers which was good finally. There is no TT as mentioned on their site. They have two poles on which they have volleyball net and they advertise as volley and badminton on their site. DJ is eye wash, some staff comes and try to jingle the music , there are 4 big speakers , only 1 was ON and that also was reminding me of All India Radio sound quality.
Pleasant surprise....the food. It was some of the best home made food I have eaten. Except rice which was half cooked everything was wonderful. Infact that was the factor which cheered us finally ( kitchen table clothes were pretty dirty though ). Overall , not a great place if you are with kids and need good spacious room. Certainly don't get impressed by photos on their web
( Did they mention swimming pool also ? Couldn't find one there).
Mr Sachin was able to make up few thing by arranging some fire in night, water heater ( we had a baby with us) and special late night dinner one day when we got delayed due to sight seeing.

Room Tip: Lower your expectations for room. Good location and very good food could be reason to take this , ce...

Location of the hotel is good and the view from the rooms is serene. But the food was disappointing. Also the parking space is not big. At most 5-6 cars can only be parked. The hot water is available only in the morning not 24 hours.

I have stay for 1 Night in this hotel, but disappointed for their room. Actually whatever they shows photos on website is all false. For family stay it is very small room with dirt. Bed is not clean when ask they are very leggy. LCD IN room is only 17 inches. But quality of food is good.

Room Tip: Not upto the mark

Good point - location.

rest all is worst. not worth the money they charge.
they dont have spare Quilts to change. the one which availailbe are bad.
restaurant is poor.

All in all, this is nowhere a '3 Star' property as they claim it to be. This should not be more than a '1 Star' property.

Pros - Away from the hustle-bustle of the town
Cons -
1. Rooms were not clean
2. Quilts were dirty - Had to get them replaced as soon as we reached
3. Generator service was on-demand. We had to wait for atleast 15-20 mins and then after calling the reception for around 2-3 times, they switched on the generator
4. For hot water as well, you will have to call the reception more than once
5. Restaurant is not connected to the rooms. If it is raining then either you go to the restaurant and get drenched, or get food in your room which is sprinkled with rain water.
6. Restaurant was even dirty. Looked like a road side dhaba in terms of the cleaniness. Food quality was also not upto the mark
7. Keeping in mind these disadvantages, prices they quote are horrendous.
All in all, this is nowhere a '3 Star' property as they claim it to be. This should not be more than a '1 Star' property.

The stay was comfortable. Only negative point was the rooms are under ground level as a result no views once inside room and no connectivity (phone or Internet). If u r to be there to sleep at night u are at home.
If u r looking for hotel to spend ur days, do not go.

Room Tip: Food n care very good. Many guest who r not staying also come for food.

Hotel is nice. It is very far from mahabaleshwar & panchgini. You dont find any market or shop area near hotel. you have to go 4-5 km to go any nearest bazaar or shop. Rooms are very small. Also its website states that hotel is near 10 minutes walking distance from lingmala waterfall. That is totally false. Even car distance is more than 10 minutes. If you like totally loneliness then go for this hotel.
