“Average hotel”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

The hotel is located between ST stand and Ganpati Temple (Temple and beach are adjacent). Both locations are at walkable distance.
Hotel is nice and clean. The rooms are spacious. The amenities of the hotels have grown older and somewhat maintenance is required.
Hotel has a veg restaurant with limited options and food quality is not very good.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar as none provides any special attraction.

The hotel have since amenities with good and spacious rooms. The staff is very cordial and helpful. Food is above average. Location is nice as the beach and other main restaurants are at walking distance, but one will have to walk though a bit.

Its is nice and clean hotel with good service. However it's a hotel past its prime with the linen, furnishings and utlilies all looking their age. It would be a much better option if they refurbished. Overall it was a nice time within good budget. The food options are limited and note that the place does not offer seafood; you would want to try Samir- another restaurant closeby if sea-food is something you like. btw; Hotel Durvankur

This short review is to assist travelers planning to visit Ganpatipule in Ratnagiri District.
I made the journey from Pune by car in mid September. I will touch on the road condition first. The route selected was Pune- Satara- Karad- turn at Kale Phatta- Malkapur- Pali-Hathkambha-Chafe Phatta- Ganpatipule.
Ganpatipule is 340 kms by this route and the road is reasonably good despite the rain, driving time is 6.5 hours (halts not included). The scenic view after Turukwadi is such that it will remind you of Switzerland/Kashmir. Eating places after leaving the highway are very basic but available. Petrol pumps are available every 30 kms or so.
Durvankur has maintained cleanliness and the food(Vegetarian only) is same as before, the choice at breakfast is rather limited, for better choice try the resort just opposite Durvankur. The rooms and toilets are clean and worth the Rs 1400/- + ST for Non AC, for AC add another 400. Being less then .5 kms from the temple is a definite plus. The staff is polite, ample secure parking is available. Hot water is available from 7 AM onwards.
As compared to MTDC the advantage here is that House Keeping staff attend to your request, while at MTDC they do not entertain/receive your request and if they take your request they do not bother to do anything about it. Location advantage is hence frittered by the attitudinal problem.
For Non Vegetarians Sameer is easily the best option in Ganpatipule, very basic but Prawns and Surmai made by them are not comparable to any other eatery in this area.
Parking close to the temple is a bit of an issue, ideally park a little away and walk the 200 steps.
Have a great visit.

Room Tip: All road facing rooms have Western WC, rear facing Indian WC.

great place to stay and not heavy on pocket. I have stayed here twice with family.

Location : 2 minutes walk from the Ganpati Mandir. A big plus point.

Food : Very nice Veg. Restaurant. Great food. Try their special Thali with Kajuchi Bhaji. Even normal thali is very tasty.

Rooms : Rooms are big enough. And good gallery to almost all rooms. Rooms are clean.

Parking : Ample parking space on the back of the hotel. Don't exactly remember but I think they even have sleeping arrangement for drivers.


Shopping : They have their own shop on groud floor to buy konkankan special stuff like aamras / kaju / papads / aambapoli and 100s of other stuff. Quality is very good.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine. But, I would prefer road facing rooms. As there is nothing to see on backside ex...

Had been to this hotel on 19 & 20 May 2013 with AC rooms. Had to spend whole night in sweat because of no electricity. Still they charged AC room prices. I had booked 3 rooms and informed them of ACs not working at all. They said electricity is not available and if no current is available till morning then they will charge prices for NON-AC(to our surprise they drive only tubelights and fans on diesel generator.). Electricity restored at 7.30AM in the morning. Suffered a lot. A hot and humid place like Ganpatipule should not have such hotels. If you try discussing the issues, the management talks with arrogant loud voice. I'm not concerned just for money, I'm concerned about why these hell of people start hotel business (with their complete FIRSTNAME | LASTNAME formats) if they cannot deal fair with customers. Even more, they did not even put a water jug in the rooms at check-in. Very low level hospitality. Please seek other hotels with good reviews.

Cleartrip should form strict service terms for such hotels. Sadly they don't.
