“Oldest Going Bad”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

One of the finest places to be in Shirdi, few years back, now is turning bad - dirty old towels, choked bathroom fittings, disinterested tired staff, deteriorating quality of food - Wake up guys please.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony is good.

I realize that you have been patronizing our Hotel over the years and I am really grateful to you for sharing your feedback.

The Hotel was renovated very recently and as a matter of fact all the bathroom fittings and fixtures are brand new. We have noted your complaints and assure you that we will take corrective actions.

This is not a 5 star hotel and is very poorly maintained. We were a family staying in a room and the extra bed is nothing but your normal sitting sofa...?? They just put the bed sheet on a sofa which was not enough for one person to fit in. If you moved around a bit you would be straight on the floor. The air conditioning didn't work very well and even after setting in the temperature it wouldn't work. The gym is quite horrible and needs improvement. The only good thing about this place was the brakfast and the good lawns.

The kind of premium price they charge, it is definitely not worth it. I would prefer to stay in St Laurn or any other 3-4 star hotel and

Room Tip: Please avoid this hotel at all costs!!

I travelled with my parents to do SAI baba darshan, location of hotel is good, very close to SAI trample, only 5 minutes by hotel shuttle, shuttle is excellent and available from 3 30 am and 11 30 pm all we need to do is give a call to shuttle driver to come and pick you up- very convinent.
At arrival check in was smooth, in the room could find lots of hairs on bed and bath rooms, flush was leaking a little bit.
We were 3 person in room but amenities were set for only 2, I called about 2 times to remind them to place extra ups, glass, tea coffee towels and extra bed.
Breakfast was good - very nice and fresh indian breakfast, room service meal was also nice.
Staff was very polite and nice and all over the hotel they were dry courteous and helpful - 100 out of 100 for staff and hospitality.
Hotel have good fitness and garden n pool facility. Good for family travel.
Other concer was - at check out - when I payed the bill receptionist gave me the change but 4 rupee less, and I was waiting for change, she looked at me with a confused face and asked me what happen, I informed her about the change to which she said - Sorry I do not have 4 RS change. Without any sorry or apology - I felt it was rude for a hospitable hotel. Even though the amount was very less, but I expected a proper change should be returned at checkout and. I surprises .

Over all I would rate it 7 out of 10
Only concern - cleanliness, preparation and checkout,
Good points - staff, shuttle, leisure faculties.

We had read the reviews of this hotel in tripadvisor and knew everything was not well with this place. But in comparison to the other hotels this looked like a good option so we went ahead and did internet booking. We reached by lunch time. We took our bags out and waited for the bell boy to come. The guard at the entrance just kept seeing us but even he did not bother to call anyone, so we had to carry our luggage inside ourselves.

The room was good and comfortable. There was a problem with the mattress though. I got a back ache after a nights sleep.

The worst part of the stay was our lunch at Checkers where they serve Indian food. We found a dead fly in the food buried deep down. We had finished our food when we saw it. The manager apologized and mumbled something about the weather and too many flies around the place some of which may have found their way into the kitchen. He didnt charge us for the food which was some relief. We also had food at Little Italy. All I can say is that the food quality is not anywhere near the star status they claim they have.
