We visited this hotel in peak summer season of May 2011. The rates in mahabaleshwar were too high and also the availability was a major problem for 4 people so somehow we choosed this hotel after viewing the rooms through internet. Yes i was also provided a very marginal discount in service tax.
The hotel is 0.5 - 1km from the main road of panchgani-mahabaleshwar road and near about 2.5 -3 km from the main market. If you have a car than you have an advantage reaching the hotel.
We reached the hotel in the afternoon and it was pretty hot. We had booked 2 rooms in advance one was pool view room and other one was valley view executive room. We were warmly greeted by the manager who promptly transferred our luggage through the attendant. Once reaching the valley view executive rooms. First impression of the rooms were
a) Rooms are big enough.
b) The view from the room was excellent
c) Big nice comfortable cosy beds.
d) Decent washrooms
e) AC was there but with a additional charge of 500 Rs per room.
f) Dining table and hall with sofas were there to watch TV. (optional and may vary according to rooms).
Hotel is having a small decent swimming pool though we didn't used it. Provision of leisure games are there like carom, ludo, table tennis and billiards table. Billiard table is at cramped place you cannot play through side ways. The stick movement is restricted while playing from side.
Restaurant provides pretty good food and having good ambiance. One can have view of the mountains sitting from the restaurant. We had to wait for more than 40 mins after ordering the food.
Room service is laid down.We had hot water not coming from bathroom so we called the room service but rather than sending any attendant he was telling us to reset the button which was at top of the heater. Also there were times when we had to remind the man at reception to send coffee which we had ordered from long time.
On the backside of hotel there is a huge sitting area with chairs and tables facing the mountains. One can enjoy sitting there in evening having tea/coffee. The view from there is excellent. You get a clear and panoramic view of mountains.
Besides this there is small playthings for children. There is a open parking space which can park nearly 8 vehicles. Rather say it as a open plot to park vehicles.Within half km from hotel there is one entertainment park (Onwheelz) which is good enough to enjoy the evening.
Somehow during our stay i didn't feel that i am staying in hotel. The hotel didn't seem to me lively. Yes rather i would call it a guest house with good facilities. May be i am saying so as there were very few people in weekdays.
I would suggest this hotel to those people who are low in profile and prefer quiet and silent surroundings. The view from the hotel is excellent. The only USP of this hotel.
