“Old Property. Nice but a little below expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

1. When checking the website, property seemed to look amazing, but like what is seen
2. The rooms are not maintained well
3. If you do not get a Valley View Room, the stay is a waste
4. Food is ok
5. Pool is the best part of the whole place (as also seen on the website)
6. Also, having dinner above the pool terrace makes the environment very cozy
7. Free WiFi available near the Reception Area

Room Tip: Ask for Valley View Rooms ONLY

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had an excellent family get away at Brightland holiday village during 18th -20th Aug 2012. I was a little skeptical of the place due to heavy rains, we however took a chance as we really wanted to be in the hills during monsoon season. The resort truly delivered on all expectations. We had a valley facing room at the upper deck. A quite corner with an excellent view. We loved the menu spread for all the meals. Breakfast buffet was specially liked by my 7 year old. The staff is polite. the services were very good even though the resort was fully occupied.

The Pranam Spa is very good and a must do.Highly recommended for a family outing we would like to visit the resort again in non monsoon season.

We visited this resort for a 3-day long weekend in August. After paying a hefty amount (almost 8K per night), we expected a beautiful accommodation. The housekeeping was just average, rooms were averagely done up, n food was just okay..! nothing really great.. Basically nothing more than a 3star place..!!

Was on a family vacation here. Amazing place beautiful location, good food, spa was good, rooms were fabulous. Kids liked the place very much. Heated swimming pool, lots of activities, good bright gardens make your day! Service was very good! Though on higher side on your wallet, it is value for money paid!

We had a family of 8 and stayed there from June 15-17, 2012. The resort is clean and nice and near the central mahabaleshwar maket, though you need a vehicle if you stay at this resort.

The rooms are nice with wonderful beds and lots of activities like Gymnasium, carrom, TT, snooker etc. So spending time wiithin the resort is also good. There are 4 restaurants where you can get from tandoor to italian food. The food is a bit pricey but good.

The rooms on lower pool side can easily accomodate 2 couples but the resort sells this room too as a 2 people room instead of a family room for 4 people.

Quite a nice exprience staying at the resort and the views too are fantastic... Cheers !!!

Room Tip: The rooms on lower pool side are excellent as they include a mezzanine floor with a TV on top also...

We had a GALA time at this place from 29th June 2012 and 30th June 2012, where we around 145 ex college people assembled. The hotel is excellent, the personnel courteous, the food good, and the facilities just great. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all my friends. In fact the hotel now has 145 ambassadors. Keep it up.

Room Tip: Take valley view rooms.
