Club Mahindra Mahabaleshwar Sherwood
Ranked #9 of 53 Hotels in Mahabaleshwar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a good hotel but needs improvement in term of rooms and maintenance of public area. Food is excellent. Resort location is superb. Little bit of capital expenditure and you are good to go. Swimming pool is excellent but pool bar is missing!!!!

Room Tip: taking a room closer to lobby is a wise idea.

We went as guest of my brother is a member of Club Mahindra.

The resort is 3 km from Mahabaleshwar market. The road is single lane and often confusing, thanks to Gmaps, we would get it right. Own vehicle is highly recommended if you want to freely move. Rooms & bathrooms were clean, although not polished to a big resort level. I can understand this as renovation is going on. Room service was limited to serving tea. The front reception was great and constantly asked for feedback.

Liked:
quiet place in nature's lap
Club organized games and bunch of activities

Didn't like:
they charge guest fee 1000+ taxes, not sure why.
they charge to play certain games like Air Hockey, Snooker...these should be free in my view.
Food is expensive...715 for Guest dinner buffet!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms opening to garden at backside

We stayed here for a week this month. As its new addition to Club Mahindra resorts, difference was easily visible.
Few good points first:
1) Property is really nice, placed on beautiful location
2) You can feel nature's touch in resort itself
3) Service was really good & fast
4) Programs arranged for guest were nice

Points of improvement:
1) Though we took 1BR, it was not up to the mark with other Mahindra Resorts 1BR
2) Kitchenette only utensils available were - Coffee Mug & Microwave. Plus microwave was not working properly
3) Stains of rain & dust was visible on wall paint (which is rare in Mahindra Resorts)
4) For Dinner once we tried ala-carte, though taste was really good but service was really very slow. They took 1 hour to serve us one starter & one curry in main course.

Overall, experience was nice, it could have be better.

Sherwood resort, i guess its almost one year or more now since the property has been taken over by club mahindra holidays. Sad to see that despite of a year passing, the property has not been maintained well. The property has amazing views and is spread vast across. Mahabaleshwar is a frequent visit point for people from bombay and pune. Keeping in mind the heavy traffic of tourist club mahindra should have expedited the maintenance work. DIdnt find the property well administered, managed and maintained. A jewel in wrong hands it seems as on date.. However, this is my personal experience. It may vary...

I understand the property is very old and blessed with fantastic view of the valley from some of the rooms.I stayed in room no 305 and the view from that room and the rooms adjoining on both sides is wonderful.I had stayed in this property last year also but than I would have rated it average,like many others in Mahableshwar .Some of the other rooms are also being renovated by the new management and it will change the entire look of the property.Give it couple of years and if you can afford the rates of this Club do visit it.
Food at all Club Mahindra Resorts is unaffordable for middle class,which includes me.So I only read the Menu.About 3.5 k m away from the main Bazaar,it retains the real charm of M'war as I have known for 60 years.

Room Tip: look for the view.

We went in the month of October as a couple. Great location very nice view.

The Resort is a very good property. The welcome was good. We were kept waiting for a very little time. We got options of rooms.

Exceptional customer service. People kept asking us what we want, what we want to do, do we want to go someplace, please join us for the evening celebration, do you want tea/coffee, etc. I dont even remember being asked so many questions even in a Taj property! Kudos to Club Mahindra.

Rooms are not that great. Due to the second highest rainfall in India the walls are all patchy and wet. We were told it is very difficult and expensive to maintain the walls unless it is painted every year or so. Only expensive resorts are maintained that way in Mahabaleshwar. In fact in the rainy months many resorts are closed with tarpaulin sheets covering the entire buildings so that the rain doesn't damage.

No network connectivity except near the pool side. No wifi available in room. Wifi which is mediocre and charged is only available in the reception lobby and swimming pool area.

Many things to do in the resort. Please note, Kates Point, Echo Point, Needle Hole are all the same and next to one another. Dont get carried away. Old Mahabaleshwar, Panchagange temple and Lord Shiva temple are all the same and next to one another. Strawberry garden is one small tiny patch of land where they grow them. Dont miss Mapro garden. Worth visiting.
