About Dwarka

A modest budget hotel with superb views over the green mountains and misty valleys of Mahabaleshwar, Dwarka is located within a five-minute walk of the town's central attractions, such as its main market.

Many of the guest rooms lead off a lovely covered wooden deck and all feature television, an en suite bathroom with hot and cold water and air conditioning.

Dwarka is set on four acres, with an expansive lawn well suited to weddings and special events. Free parking, airport transfers, and tour booking assistance are also available to guests.

A tempting mix of Indian and Chinese cuisine is served at the on site restaurant. Travellers will also find several restaurants within a five to ten-minute walk, including The Grapevine, one of the town's most popular local eateries.

Holiday makers can spend the day boating on Venna Lake, a ten-minute drive, or enjoy fresh strawberries and spectacular views at Echo Point, about 20 minutes from Dwarka.

Positive Reviews

Beautiful views from the lawn

Few travellers fail to mention the lovely mountain views afforded from the property's expansive grounds. Every room has a furnished balcony, and many travellers say they can enjoy the view from these as well.

Good location close to the town centre

Travellers generally find the location convenient for exploring Mahabaleshwar town centre, noting that the market is within a ten-minute walk. Those travelling without a car mention that the town's main intercity bus stop is just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. Guests generally find the hotel's central location works well as a base for sightseeing in the area.

Negative Reviews

An older building, showing its age

Guests are often disappointed with the general condition of the building, often commenting that the rooms need refurbishing, linens need replacing, and that the bathroom facilities are both aged and in very poor repair. The rooms are also lacking in modern conveniences. The televisions are described as outdated and Wi-Fi is nonexistent. Travellers also recommend deeper cleaning, and have reported issues with insects.

Very limited hot water on site

Travellers on vacation are annoyed to find it is necessary to get up early to receive hot water for bathing, rather than it being available throughout the day.

Room for improvement in hospitality

With the exception of a kind, well-intentioned few, guests are generally disappointed with the staff, often noting unfriendly or unhelpful behaviour at reception. Guests are similarly unimpressed by the on site dining, noting especially long delays in receiving room service.
