Kamats Hotel
Ranked #4 of 19 Khandala B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I have stayed there for 1 night with family for a stop over on our way to Mahabaleshwar , The room offered was specious and really nice for our family of 2 + 3 . They have 2 restaurants , but the food served in restaurant was average. It could be a good property if they maintain it well. Value for money Hotel good for stopover or a day trip to Lonavala.

Had stayed 1 night at Kamats with family of 10 pax excluding children. Though the location and ambience is good, the staff seemed a bit aloof and we had to call them many times to get things done. The food was good.

A great place to have delicious dishes for pure vegetarians. Almost all the food be it Punjabi, South indian, Chinese and fast food,everything is just too good.No wonder that this hotel is always full of visitors on their way to Khandala and Lonavala because of the great food quality and prompt service.

Service was good and can be improved further. The quality of the food was ok. Over all it was nice to spent a night at that place. The furnishings and the cleanliness in the hotel room was also good. Good and nice vegetarian foods available and the service was ok type

There was serious traffic jam on the express way at 8pm On 13th oct,12 when we started by car from thane at 530pm to go to Pune which usually takes not more than 3 hours with one stop at food mall. We took unplanned halt when we saw kamat hotel on the diverted route by policemen as we had very good impression 20 years ago in Nasik. Brand image of the name kamat being good we paid room rent which was asked in advance at the reception without seeing the room thinking that Rs 3000/night for an ac room will be good and clean to spend the night peacefully. We were in for a rude shock.. Toilet was stinking with frog in the comod!! Walls and doors were extremely dirty. Light fitting/ fixtures were broken/ missing. This is not something you expect. When I called to complain, I was told this is what you get for 3000 and boy will come after his dinner and clean the toilet which he came. But why u need to tell?

Room Tip: Please positively see the room before paying the room rent. It is not worth paying 3000/ night for a...

was on a relaxed n chilled weekend to kamats khandala with hubby n another couple friend...... on reaching we realised we had made the wrong choice as we were greeted with an old gentleman at the reception who seemed like he was just doing his job!!
the room was pathetic ......torn bedsheet .....stained blanket......no lampshades( on asking was rudely put off by the manager by saying that it had been stolen by the previous guest) .........dirty plastic chairs ........well i can go on and on...........
and now for the breathtaking view.......what can i say .........the minute we stepped out of our rooms we were treated to some unkept n dirty rooftop .........which sadly and badly needed repair..........n the view ??? hahhahaha.............
and not to say we paid anything less ........
a must mention is the EL TAJ RESTAURANT which definately was the saving grace....the food was excellent n so was the service !!
WAKE UP KAMATS ....................

It was monsoon time and best place for a quick short break around pune would be khandala - we headed to the junction not realising that most of mumbai and pune would be around as well and hence shortage of good hotels. Without choice we chose to spend a night at Kamat khandala.

I got the first shock when i figured out the entrance of the hotel...right under the busy and noisy expressway (not something you expect a resort to be located at). Dark, clumsy and stinking - these 3 words describe how the hotel and the front office looked. The lady at the counter was probably a bit of relief when she alloted us a room with a valley view. We had some hopes as we started to move into the hotel building, however the dark leeways with limites small windows were a set back - i once resembled this to a mental hospital where i did a lot of community service.

The room (4 beded) was a bit of a relief consdering it was not smelly. But to our sheer surprise there way no valley view - instead, we had a magnificent view of the city drainage being released into the valley....possibly what they may have called waterfall view. The room was just OK to move in but definitely not worth Rs. 7500 / night. It had a color tv and just one split AC which could barely keep the humidity out of the room. The bathrooms were disgusting and wet with limited or not exhaust. The showers didnt work and taps were greasy - definitely not something that you wish to have in the bathroom.

We spent a couple of hours and order some meal - the food was a relief - it was good however room service compensated for all the good that meal did. Having nothing to do, we headed for the swimming pool barely realising that it adjoins with the kitchen back yard. The swimming pool was simply not maintained with broken tiles, stagnant water around it and the unbearable stench of the rotten food from the kitchen. We skipped our idea of having a dip and went ahead for lonavala sight seeing.

Good - Food (South Indian)
Bad - Everything except food.
