“Wonderful stay at Mount View”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Beautiful Mount View Hotel was a wonderfully comfortable and friendly base for our yoga holiday. We were so well looked after by Verzaad and family and all the friendly staff. Now very much looking forward our return trip next year

It is a fantastic place with lots of atmosphere, great views, delicious food and wonderful people who make it special!
The location is ideal so walking to Panchgani even in the heat is okay and the views are spectacular.
We plan another trip in the rains and will keep exploring this area!

Room Tip: I liked the Chapel, formerly the prayer room as it was a nunnery.....Room 2. Great peaked ceiling an...

I found this hotel from Google Maps as I was not getting any reservation in Mahabaleshwar in May 2014. So I decided to try my luck . I booked the room for 3. And to my surprise I got the stamdard room which was really good clean. With 4 beds available. Bathroom was clean and hot water facility was also available till afternoon ( which many hoteliers don't provide). Hotel is actually Old house of Parsi family converted into hotel that means it has a classic look which you people could guess from pictures. But it still is in good condition. And last food..
If you book in package you get unlimited food. You'd get tired of eating such good quality food right from morning to night.
In the early morning you get tea with toasts, then breakfast at 9. Then you get veg or non veg food as per your request at lunch. Again evening tea at 5 pm. And dinner at night. I have never seen any hotel giving food so many times.
The staff of the hotel is very polite and well mannered. Overall it is very good place to stay.

A comfortable family run place. Spacious rooms with scenic view. The rustic decor in the room, the dinning in the verandah adds to the charm. Food was awesome Parsi fair and generous helpings provided. Nice run-around place for the kids with a play area. A treat to go as a family, or just as a couple away from the crowds. The rains make it ever so nostalgic taking you back to some village home of your own.

Panchgani is a hill town at the height of Ben Nevis so not too hot (32 degrees when we were there during the dry season) and the Mount View Hotel was a perfect base for exploring the area. We had a lovely simply furnished room at the end of the long verandah where meals were served. Very relaxed atmosphere at the hotel and sitting out looking over the Krishna valley particularly early morning was wonderful. The old landscaped gardens and manicured lawns have gone and now there is an eco garden of native trees and shrubs - waking up in the morning to the calls of a rich mix of bird species - babblers, barbets, mynahs and bulbuls was a real treat. The troupe of monkeys also appeared from time to time and ground squirrels were always around. All home cooking and the family and staff who run this hotel are exceptionally helpful and really made our stay a pleasure.

For 2 weeks this was home for our yoga group and I loved every minute of it. Veerzad and family looked after us so well and made my first trip to India one to remember. I loved the early mornings, sitting out overlooking the Krishna River and valley below, listening to birdsong. Mahinder made sure we had our meals on time(!) not an easy task when 20 descend at the same time! I shared a deluxe bedroom, situated a few metres away from the main building, the room was light and airy and very comfortable. We could have taken our meals right outside our room if we'd wished and had I not been with our great group, I'd probably have done that - breakfast, at least. 1st week was half board and the 2nd., bed and breakfast which gave us all a chance to sample other places to eat in Panchgani. It was a bit daunting at first because the food was good at the hotel but once let loose, we weren't disappointed. To sum up, I loved every minute of my stay at this lovely, family run hotel and plan to visit next year when I'll be exploring more of this beautiful area.

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw had character but I really fancy room 9!

A lovely family run hotel! The rooms are well proportioned and furnished in keeping with the Heritage theme. Very comfortable, particularly the pull out extra bed in the room. The rooms and bathroom are exceptionally clean and the bathroom is modern. Hot water is available at fixed times , supplied by a log burning furnace! The food is really good. Parsi style food cooked by the owner's wife. There is wifi access but not a very good connection in the rooms. Food is served outside the rooms in the long verandah. It could have been designed a bit better; plastic chairs spoil the heritage theme! Nicer if a common dining room had been there.The location is good too; walking distance from the market. All in all a great stay at reasonable rates!
