Very very silent
on Oct 8, 2019
I had visited this hotel in Oct 2019.
Location and Ambience: This hotel is located approx. 6km from the new Mahabaleshwar city. Yet it is worth coz it is absolutely pin drop silence here. Make sure you carry all your daily needs as there is no shop nearby.
Hospitality: The staff is really good and are marathi. The owner of this hotel lives in front of the hotel in a banglow. There are many dogs in the hotel area who keep on barking and hopping on people but don't get scared coz they don't bite.
Food: The food quality is also good and both veg and NV options are available. Not sure if they serve drinks or not so better buy the drinks on your own from some wine shop and then enjoy.
Rooms: Rooms are decent but could be better if properly maintained. Little bit damp smell often comes from the room thats because they were closed since long time. But within 15 mins the smell goes away if properly ventilated.
Parking: its a huge area so park your car anywhere.
Surprise by the jungles

Have been to Mahabaleshwar numerous times in different hotels, but this place really stood out.
As the name says it all - This place lies in old Mahabaleshwar hugging a valley and its jungles. Once here, you frankly don't need to visit any points since the place itself is scenic. It faces a valley and you can see rising mountains just sitting on the garden bench. Being away from all the crowds the site is super silent. You can easily spot numerous birds, especially the jungle hens. I even spotted a fawn (baby deer) early in the morning. Not to forget a couple of very friendly dogs in the campus. The nights were super quite and this is probably the place you should be if you want to de-stress yourself.
The staff is really friendly. They serve limited Maharashtrian veg thalis which is really tasty and healthy. (May not be for the one who likes unlimited Gujarati thalis) Also they do take non-veg orders on demand (we had eggs).
The place is maintained very clean but the bathroom even though very clean, can do with a little upgrades.
This place is probably for the only ones having their own cars.
Overall don't expect luxury but this is a real bliss in Mahabaleshwar, away from the noisy crowds. Keep it up!!
Excellent in all terms

We Stayed there for 2 days in Mid of March. The hotel is little bit far from Mahabaleshwar ST Bus stand (20 minutes approximately by car). But that is why we get to stay at isolated,silent place with beautiful mountain view. They have all basic facilities. Rooms are clean,spacious.Garden,park for children. Big Parking space. We can have a cup of tea while sitting in the open area next to the rooms with a picturesque view of Sahyadri range. If you like vegetarian Maharashtrian food then you will love this place. They had non mahashtrian food items too on their menu card. We did not try any of them. The staff was humble,co-operative, enthusiastic. We had booked a package of 2 days which included pickup and drop to ST bus stand, breakfast,lunch ,dinner,supper and sight seeing in Mahabaleshwar, Panchgani,etc.
In short ,it is a hotel with all basic facilities with reasonable charges and good ambience. You can visit here with your family and friends.

If you seek a getaway from the maddening rush of the city, look no further than this place. It is an isolated place, away from the hustle of "new" Mahabaleshwar. The property is literally in the middle of a jungle. You can hear the wind whistle in the woods and the breeze throughout the day is amazing. The views from the children's playground are spectacular. Lunch/Dinner fare is Maharashtrian and the variety is splendid. This place is our tri-annual vacation destination for a good reason.
