A beautiful, comfortable great heritage holiday home... The food is excellent and surroundings is quiet and peaceful... One of those places where u can actually enjoy the birds chirping during sunset over your evening tea. A place in the city yet away from the crowds...

This was our first visit to Panchgani, and we found exactly what we were looking for. An excellent property, wonderful hosts, great service, and peace and quiet.

The property is very well maintained, lush green with tall trees that give plenty of shade even in peak summer, and you could spend the entire day discovering sounds in nature that one would never do when living in a city.

The meals are served in the dining room, with specific timings. Breakfast 815-10 am, Lunch 115-3 pm, and Dinner 815-10 pm. Each table is served, and the food is a high point of the hotel. Delicious, with a lot of variety for each meal. If you love Parsi/Irani food, you would look forward to each meal, and get surprised every time.

The staff is very friendly, and when you meet with the owners (Mrs and Mr Shahram), you understand why. They are extremely helpful, never hesitating to answer questions, or give pointers.

A short 15 minute hike to the back of the hotel leads you to the tableland close by. I would recommend that you take this hike instead of driving, and do this early morning. The sunrise is quite spectacular and so is the view.

The only negative comment I would have was that the pool had too much chlorine.

We would visit Panchgani again simply to spend more time at Prospect. A great getaway from the frenetic pace of city life.

This was my 1st stay at Prospect and I am really impressed almost by everything that the hotel has to offer. We selected the Pool Side cottage since my kids love to swim. The pool was quite clean and decent facilities were at the pool. Most guests using the pool were also well behaved unlike other places where I have seen ppl just splashing water all over the place.
Food: If you are a foodie especially a non vegetarian lover then you have reached heaven. We were stuffed with food till we said no more!
Location: Quite scenic since its on top of the hill. U can actually see the table land from the pool side. Its also very green everywhere and hence very peaceful.
Service: The waiters were super courteous especially Arun who was very patient and always had a smile. My kids almost drove him crazy but he never complained. Also room service was quite good.
All in all I would recommend this over any other hotel.
Vacation TIP: Stay in Panchgani, Mahabaleshwar is just too too crowded and traffic is crazy. Panchgani is still more peaceful.

Let me try putting down my views in the most objective terms:-
1. Property: Outstanding. Large rooms with well done simplistic interiors.
2. Best thing about the hotel: Food. The food is truly Parsi and is so awesome that I will stay in the hotel just to relish the food.
3. Pet friendly when you pay an additional charge of Rs. 700.

Note:- I had stayed at a time when the leading road to hotel was being renovated and even though it was inconvenient, yet doesn't take away anything from the hotel. I want to give it more than 5 stars.

A sense of calm and coolness exudes from this pretty heritage hotel. We spent a Lazy 2 days here and thoroughly loved it. The beautiful, green surroundings, the pretty rooms were a sight for sore eyes. The service from the Parsi family which runs the place was warm and friendly. The food was amazing, especially the non veg.
