“Go here if Great View and Veg Food is your idea of a holiday”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This was one of our many impromptu holidays. Choice of hotel was simple - any hotel with a great view. Having stayed at the Evershine Keys Hotel last time which didn't offer any view, we decided on Hotel Gautam. We didn't regret the choice for the view was just amazing. We checked-in on a Friday and the place was surprisingly well occupied and looked cheerful. Rooms in the newly renovated wing (garden facing rooms) are chic and well appointed. However, the bed in our room was very disappointing. It was so hard that I am prompted to rank the lowest on 'sleep quality'. Service is good and staff is friendly. Warning!! This is a PURE VEG hotel. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel during our stay. Dinner was alright and the breakfast was a simple affair for a what they had charged us on food. The hotel has a pool but can be maintained much better. The garden area is maintained well minus the plastic furniture which is a show-spoiler. There is no in room dining facility and no a-la-cart menu. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

As a kid, going to Mahabaleshwar twice a year was a given, and staying at Hotel Gautam, mandatory. Having grown up here, I can vouch for the excellence this hotel provides - courteous staff, cosy rooms, picturesque view and not to forget, the delicious VEG only food that makes a hardcore non vegetarian like me also forget my meat. After the recent renovation, I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone that visits Mahabaleshwar. It's especially a great place for families and couples.

Room Tip: As you enter the hotel, the rooms on your left are the BEST!

Although they seve only veg food, its absolutely yummy and home made.
The entire place has a beautiful aura to it. Situated at the edge of the hill, it is beautiful in all seasons
The staff is well trained and courteous. I have also stayed at their property in Lonavala and its is eqaully beautiful

Room Tip: Try the rooms at the cliff and dont miss this place in winters

This was one of the few good hotels that I visited. The rooms were good, warm and cosy for this time of the season although I was charged Rs 750.00 extra for a room with heating facility. The food was excellent and the staff was very courteous. Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel.

I book this resort 2 times. Very nice resort. Valley view from garden is excellent. Garden area is also very big. Some indoor games i.e. carom, table tennis also available. Rooms are clear. Service is good and food is excellent. Only thing is they serve only veg food so I recommend this to all veggis. Swimming pool also available.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. I stayed in pool site rooms but I think garden site are also very nice.
