Positive Reviews

Fun activities for all ages

Young (and young-at-heart) travellers appreciate the well kept swimming pool and expansive terrace, which allows plenty of room for playing. The indoor games room is also well equipped, with pool tables, table tennis, and bicycles.

A pretty location, not too far from town

Travellers often choose the hotel for its location, as they enjoy its beautiful natural setting near the lake and farmland as well as its proximity to the market and restaurants in Mahabaleshwar town centre, about ten minutes away on foot.

Spacious, airy guest rooms

Travellers who book rooms with private balconies attached enjoy the fresh air, and often describe their rooms as comfortably spacious.

Negative Reviews

Getting on in years...

Room types vary throughout the property, and those located in the oldest part of the building are regularly described as in need of updating, deeper cleaning, or general maintenance, particularly in terms of furnishings and bathroom fixtures. Unpleasant odour in the rooms and linens due to dampness is a frequently reported cause of concern.

Too cool for comfort

Travellers are frequently disappointed to find hot water only available in the early morning hours. They also comment that the rooms are not well heated, despite Mahabaleshwar's cooler climate.

Room for improvement in hospitality

Travellers often report unfriendly personnel at the front desk and unreasonable delays in receiving room service. Reviews of the on site restaurant are mixed as well. Key areas of concern include food variety and quality, particularly at breakfast, and overly loud music during the dinner hour.
