We stayed at the Heritage Machan just as the monsoon was ending. Although many had mentioned that we would not enjoy it as much were completely wrong.
Driving up to the place is a little difficult as we were literally in the clouds. The hotel sent out some help so we could follow their employee down the cloudy path!
The food at the Heritage room is served in the room. The food was excellent. They checked with you for what preparation you would like, including veg and non-veg options. The spread of food was huge!
Though some folks have complained about the dampness of the sheets - this is not really avoidable considering you are in the midst of clouds! It was really a spectacle to wake up and see a filtered stream of cloud above your head :)
We had excellent luck that the architect of the Heritage was visiting the premises on the same day and took as through the creation of the Heritage Machan.
