Four of us stayed here for a wedding for 3 nights in February. Overall the experience was good. The rooms were large with a nice view through large windows. Buffet dinners were great. Really tasty food with nice desserts also. Breakfast was tasty and varied. There is a bar which we used each night. The pool was nice but rather cold when we were there! There is a terrace with great views of the hills and the expressway below- fun to watch the crazy drivers!
We were surprised that there were no countryside walks directly from the hotel- just along the road past houses and not much in particular! Lonavela was a 10 minute tuk-tuk ride away and worth a visit to buy the famous chikki!
