If you ever feel the want to feel Royal and want to experience Homely stay , pack ur bag and drive to Panchgani and experience the serene bliss of Panchagani by Having the most wonderful stay at Hotel Prospect , a heritage Hotel built around 1912 and the British aura and class still abundantly visible and the Upkeepment by the Current customer friendly Management is amazing.
Its got 25 different kinds of rooms with cottage effect , we a family of 5 stayed in the Sunset Cottage suite with simple yet well appointed rooms with attached modern bath.
The cottage had a sit out which reminds us of the Royal sit out. Its completely engulfed with nature and waking up to the Chirping birds and squirrels is like Gold dust

The service is very homely not 5 star type but very warm and thats what i liked most about the place. then comes thefood and parsi cusine will blow u off and always keep that extra space for the sinful mindblowing desert

Highly recommended for 3 nights ....but disclaimer is that you would not like to come back from that place back to the Urban jungle

This was our second visit to Prospect. We wanted to have a quick-short break for kids before school routine starts. We had been to Prospect around same time, last year. So this time when I bounced off the idea of a short break, my daughter was quick to react... she only had Prospect in mind. We decided to revisit Prospect....

This place, as I call it, is a Heaven on the Earth esp. for foodies and more so for someone who relishes good Parsi Food. When we decided on Prospect, my daughter was ready with a list of Parsi delicacies she wanted to have over next 4 meals. She politely requested Shahram... and though he was non committal over phone, we were all up for surprise when we landed there.

Shahram, after having worked with Taj Hotels, has maintained same standards at Prospect, meticulously. Rooms are spic-n-span, lawns are well maintained and clean. Staff is very helpful. They make all efforts to ensure you are comfortable and at peace.

Shahram’ wife oversees the kitchen. She makes sure everything is to the perfection. Food here is cooked to perfection... esp. the Non-veg. I haven’t tried my luck on Veg food, because NV is so delicious, but I am sure I wont be disappointed. Menu is meticulously decided. We were here for 2 nights, which essentially included 4 meals and 2BF. Not a single dish (except breads and chapatis) were repeated.

Swimming Pool is very well maintained. Kids had a gala time, even though water was very cold.

Prospect is a perfect weekend getaway for someone staying in Pune (like us). It’s 2.5 hours of drive, roads are in descent shape and so its a good drive. Weather is pretty nice in Panchagani, most of the time during year and once you land here, you are pampered... I have no hesitation is accepting a life membership, the day when Shahram decides to offer.

This was a perfect ‘Detox-break’ we were looking to have before getting back to our routine.

In one word.... awesome!!
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life....just head to Hotel Prospect, in Panchgani. The drive took us just under 5 hours. The place is fantabulous. Absolutely fantastic food. Hats off to the wonderful kitchen staff. The place is quiet. The property is clean and well maintained. The view is beautiful....the valley below and Table Land above. We'll definitely visit again. Thanks to the owners and staff of Hotel Prospect for pampering us and making our stay very very comfortable.

The hotel offers excellent ambience set around in lots of greenery. Its walkable distance from Panchgani market. The property is very well maintained inspite of its long history. The owners are very friendly, loving and helpful. The cleanliness of the property, cottages and bathroom was upto the mark. Breakfast and food quality is good. The kids had fun playing in the pool and other games at the resort. Would love to be back there for a longer duration ...

Having always heard of Prospect, I actually stayed there for the first time. My experience with the HOMEL (Home + hotel) was exceptional. From the property, to the food to the hosts - every bit makes you feel so comfortable and genuinely at home. Being a vegetarian I was served with a variety of options, which was appetizing and healthy.
We stayed in one of their cottages which was clean, spacious with all the amenities and a beautiful green view. Loved it !

I completely vouch for this stay in Panchgani !! :D
