“Awesome property, excellent service, totally worth it!!”

Just loved the place, superb property, mesmerizing valley view (though there were no rains in June end when we went), excellent service by the care takers.

We had booked our stay for 3 days, we took 3 rooms, the entire 1st floor, the rooms were clean and well furnished, for the first day evening we asked care takers Mr. & Mrs. Bhajan to cook dinner for us, the food was decent (almost like home food), then for the next few days we were exploring panchgini and mahableshwer so didn't have meal with them again, but yes the served us sumptuous breakfast everyday.

The property has WIFI, you just need to ask Captain Gokhale (Owner) for password - I was carrying office work, I just emailed Captain for password and he promptly replied and even called to confirm if the WIFI is working well. The only problem we faced is that the WIFI works only in living area and kitchen, there is no WIFI range on the first floor rooms.

Few feedbacks - One of the bathrooms on 1st floor didn't have jet spray, which we thought was a slight discomforting, secondly there needs to be dustbins in all the bathrooms for hygiene purpose, and WIFI in rooms is also needed.

To sum up with a very well built property with brilliant view (im sure in rains its would be way beyond my imagination) and good service. I would recommend all to live this experience if you visit panchgini.

“Excellent HomeStay experience”

Spellbound would be the least I can say about my stay with family at Dala Rooster. An Heart-warming, friendly hospitality by Capt. Gokhale and Mrs. Gokhale...

Excellent staff with some awesome cooking, and last but not the least, an awesome locale. The accommodation is clean, PET FRIENDLY and vibrant. Having Capt. Gokhale & family as a part of our every meal was delightful...

Will recommend people visiting Panchgani not to miss out Dala Rooster if they are looking for an Home-Stay accommodation....

“Best place for a family get-together in Panchgani”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Dala Rooster for a day, last weekend. It was the best stay ever at Panchgani.
Huge beautiful bunglow owned by Capt. Gokhale (very generous person) and extremely well maintained by the staff.
The view from every room in this bunglow was breath taking. I wish I had come here during monsoons. 7 humongous rooms, well-ventilated and 4 bathrooms spick and span. The place was spotless.
The staff could've been a bit polite but otherwise they did whatever they could to make our stay not just comfortable but luxurious. I could stay there forever. We didnt feel the need to go out in the crowded market place or for sightseeing around Panchgani.
Its a dreamy house and we all wished out loud that how good it would be to own such a beautiful bunglow at such a great location.
