After having visited the hotel N number of times in the past, I can certainly say the service & Quality standard have really fallen.
The swiming pool and the steam bath area werent clean atall. Rather the Steam Bath was quite dirty.
There was no Hot water in the Gym Showers.
We ordered for some light snacks at around 4pm, and from the taste we could make out, that they had served the leftover of the morning breakfast. One would definitely expect some fresh food for the price and at such a 5star category hotel.
Overall the hotel standards have definitely fallen in each and every dapartment, and I will surely be trying out other options for my future trips to Shirdi.
And yes though I haven't tried it yet, The Hotel St. Laurn next door, looks Pretty interesting and much more decent prima facie. Will try it out next time for sure.
Or if someone else does, do let us know about its quality and standards.
