We stayed at Fountain from November 7 to 9 in their New Annexe Wing, 1st Floor. The Hotel has a beautiful location - Right on the Valley - offering an unhindered view of the Sahyadris. It is about 1 km from the market, which makes it conveniently located. The hotel has an old world charm.

Our room was spacious and had a sofa bed. It also had a balcony separated by a sliding door - a great place to sit and enjoy the sunset. The view from the room is awesome, probably the best thing about this hotel. Bed is comfortable, lighting is good. The bathrooms are very average. No hot water in wash basin, no glass enclosures or tubs. But water in bathing taps is hot. TV is not flat screen. No baby chair.

The food is typical Gujarati style. While its good to have a couple of meals, but then it gets to you. Whether its chinese or pav bhaji or any other cuisine, it has a distinct Gujarati touch to it, which beyond a point does not flatter the taste buds. My advise - opt for a food included package only for one day. Other days, dine outside. Staff is very friendly and cordial. Room service is quick.

I have been going to Fountain since I was a child - Nothing has changed. I love the valley views - the flavour of Mahabaleshwar and will continue to go there. But I dont know whether the next generation will go to a hotel that is not updating its food and facilities with modern times.

Room Tip: Ensure that you get a valley view room.

I had gone with friends to relax. This was my families all time favourite hotel to stay in Mahableshwar. Its is more like family hotel, they have good entertainment. Food is included but not that tasty.
It is okay, need to change.

If you are in Mahabaleshwar this is the place to stay. We were here in December and expecting too much of chaos but they have managed it too well.

Rooms were fantastic & this was my 4th stay at fountain. Service is outstanding and you must try corn soup.

If you are ready to spend little more please do try club room with bath tub.

Great if you are a couple or with large family.
