Girivihar is just the right choice to stay in mahabaleshwar with its positive aura and the beautifully polite staff and good spacious rooms.The temple in the centre is amazing where the aarti in the evening is nice as they also move dhoop in the rooms this is purely veg and has tariff inclusive of meals. If you are lucky you may see the giant squirrel there.
A small tip: prefer to take rooms near the temple
Nice hotel for family
on May 17, 2017
I have been staying in the hotel almost every time I came to Mahabaleshwar.
Very very good and homely food. The place is not far from the market, yet not crowded. Lots of trees in the premises look pleasant.
In case of a small or big group, the adjacent rooms can be interconnected. There's a good sitout area. There's also a small garden with kids play area.
A perfect relaxation place in the city

Its a peaceful place, with a temple and in-door dining. The staff is courteous and helps you with local transport, if required. The Resort owns its own farms, from where one can get fresh vegetables and fruits (especially, strawberries in a particular season) at a very economical rate. Few small vendors visit the resort with their products such as, shoes, wall decorations etc. which are more economical than the market.
Though there is no restaurant, there is indoor dining hall, where they serve pre-planned food. One may check for any specific food item with a sufficient prior notice. Non-veg food is not served.
Visiting this place for years toggether

This hotel is in existence for more than 60 years. A hotel with tradition. Fully vegetarian maharashtrian meals are part of the package.
They have a fixed menu for each day.
The staff is very helpful and courteous.
I have been staying there for the last 25 years.
Very homely atmosphere and great Maharashtrian food

Very homely atmosphere and great Maharashtrian food. Conveniently located, nice open spaces, hill station atmosphere, rooms around a temple.
Breakfast is the only disappointment.
Rooms are spacious with verhanda in front.
