“worst hotel to stay in mahabaleshwar to spoil your holiday”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

any body planning to stay at this hotel be prepared to have the worst experience of your life!.i had planned a holiday with my wife looking for a good time in mahabalehwar at a comfortable and good hotel.It so happened that i booked this hotel through a travel agent who claimed that the hotel is a three star hotel with a pool,sports park,gymnasium etc etc.he booked a double deluxe room in that hotel for 2 nights and 3 days for a sum of Rs 10,000.after paying the amount i was rest assured that my stay will be a memorable experience.it was truly memorable but in the opposite sense.the hotel management is a cheat.they offered me double deluxe room but it was no good than a cheap lodge.the room was smelly and the bathroom lacked water supply.when the water supply started i had to bath with ice chilled water in winter because the hotel had solar water heater which only operated in morning.the food is served only during specific timings like in a mess.the food quality is pathetic and you cant have food of your choice because each day the menu is fixed.the hotel staff is very uncoopetative and rude.all other facilities like gym and sports are in bad shape.overall i think this is the best place to spoil your holiday!

The hotel is good enough though not very good. I took the complete trip package which included the three night stays. Rooms are quite chicky and a bit old. Hotel has swimming pool and yes, the food was very good, way better than expectation. Service is OK type.

Rates vary from season to season.

This hotel badly need up-gradation,i had visited it in nov 2011,starting from phone booking NO ONE PICKS CALL.then there is limited hot water in rooms ( Place like Mahabaleshwar it was super cold in morning ).in this also we did not get hot water in morning this was very pathetic experiance.& staff was not at all aware of this & they were not at all trying to fixed it.

Dont ever think of this hotel,dont go on pics which are uploaded on site,its totally opposite of it.

Hello friends,

Please do not even think about this hotel if you are looking for a pleasant and comfortable stay in Mahabaleswer. They charged us 6000 per night stating that it is the market cost for the long weekend.Following was our experience
1. When we entered the hotel for check in(late in the evening), we were handed over the room keys. The outside view of this hotel was average, but then the actual shock came after entering the room.
2. ROOMS- Due to rains, the water was continuously flowing inside the room from the main door....OH GOD!!
3. BESHEETS- The bedsheets were dirty with stains. Looked like they had not been changed for a long time.
4. TV- LCD TV was not working. When we complained, an electrician came as a formality and left without fixing the problem. The images were blurred and to add to the despair, a large warning was displayed on all channels at the bottom of the TV regarding the NON-PAYMENT of dues...UFFFF!!!!!
5. BATHROOM- Now comes the bathroom..Bathroom was not cleaned before we checked in..lot of stains and DIRTY SMELL with dead cockroaches in the bath tub..YUKKK!!!!
6. RECEPTION STAFF- We thought of giving our feedback at the end of our trip to the reception manager. There were couple of them and one was not even ready to listen to the feedback. When we complained about the flaws in the accomodation compared to the price they have charged, he was extremely arrogant and started arguing. How unprofessional!! The other was was good though..

However, food was good for vegetarian people. But if its only about food, then 6000 per night is way too high!!!! Not worth at all for the kind of stay provided by them..
I feel that we have been cheated!! Except for food, nothing else is value for your money..

I recommend NOT to go with this hotel if they are charging more than 2000 per night. NOT WORTH AT ALL!!!

Liked- Food
Disliked- Everything else

Room Tip: Rooms are worse
