Over priced and spicy food as hell.Rooms need to be painted and musty smell. Hot water was an issue. Frankly would not go again if had a choice.would choose something closer on the highway. The thali is over rated and not upto the mark

Hotel opal has been there for more than 3 decades now. Very famous for non vegetarian traditional kolhapuri food. I am a vegetarian. I enjoy the veg thali the most. Try the veg- Pandhra rasssa. Fast quick service, and hot food.

This is a good hotel no doubt which claims to be around from the 60s but few suggestions to the management/staff. 1. There was some very foul smell in the staircase which go up to the rooms, please try to remove that. 2. All rooms should have a working night lamp. 3.

We have stayed couple of times in this hotel with family. They are building new premises just in front of the old place. Rooms are OK. Food: This hotel is famous for their non veg food though veg food is also good. Breakfast: Variety of items are available & taste is good. Overall: Nice for all kind of short trips.
