“Bring your own blanket in this camphouse.”
Reviewed December 28, 2010

Stay away from this place - especially in winters. People who are running it have no sense of customer service or common sense. We booked a cottage with full payment in advance with a steep price hoping to have a quality time with Family. Cottage size was quite good but interiors/furniture were pretty basic. It was very cold and thankfully hot water was available 24x7. But a big surprise was waiting for us. Instead of thick warm blankets or quilt they provided super-thin flannel sheets. When we asked the caretaker for something more suitable for the Christmas winter he shrugged. We demanded to talk to the manager but nobody turned up. We couldn't get much sleep for the whole stay even after exhausting all our warm cloths at night.

Bed tea in the morning is provided only after 8AM even though sun rises at 7AM. Dinner never comes before 9:30PM irrespective of whenever you asked for it. Basically they have just 2-3 servants managing everything while the owner is busy counting money. There is no enough parking for even 3-4 vehicles and one morning we had to wait for 20 mins just because another guest parked the car in driveway and was not available in the morning. Also as the place is in secluded area with dark thin roads you can't take chance of coming in late or walking around at nights.

Overall there are better hotels in mahabaleshwar with quarter of the price of this.

angiePune, Manager at Honeywood Holiday Homes Hotel, responded to this review, March 8, 2011
We would like to inform Mr Arav that we have owned and managed Honeywood for the past 10 yrs and have provided service to reputed corporate companies like Satyam Computers etc, and have enjoyed a long standing relation with them and various other clients who have stayed with us and appreciated our warm hospitality. A client base which we have built through trust, goodwill and personalized service.
Our holiday home as mentioned is a 'holiday home" and not a five star hotel which our tariff also suggests. We do not provide 24hrs round the clock house keeping service and are always willing to make exceptions as the need arises. The extra blanket requested by this particular client was at 12am midnight, in spite of our staff which had by then retired to their quarters by 11.30pm, obliged to the clients request. The blanket provided was a standard good quality blanket used by hoteliers all over Mahabaleshwar. As for dinner being served at 9.30pm was only 1/2 hour after the client placed their order which is fair considering all our orders for meals are taken 2 hrs in advance.
Mahabaleshwar is overcrowded and full of vehicles during season time, being one of the most popular hill stations in India. Therefore we have clients who prefer quite and green surroundings which are located away from the busy and crowded market area. Duchess Road is one of the most prestigious locations in Mahabaleshwar and is address to top hotels like Brightlands resort and Ramsukh resorts. It also is a beautiful place for walks. We have had many clients appreciate the tranquility and quiet location of Honeywood
We at Honeywood strive to make our clients holiday a memorable one.
