Were here just for dinner
on Jun 16, 2017
We were here for dinner.Great food.The hot coffee we had was the best one I tasted since last couple of years.
We were in Lonawala next day too, and planned to go there for breakfast.But a grand wedding was arranged on same day there and they closed down restaurant for outsiders.
Better than average but definitely not Very Good...sums it up.

May be a good rating would give only median results...but once a while a property may be 'not too bad' but very good is still some way off...
We stayed there on the 10th..(1 Night) as we had a full two days lined up at Imagica...it was essentially a 'sleep over' option.
The Good :
The staff is courteous and helpful
The property seems new
Location wise is right in the middle of it all
The bad :
Severe cutting of corners (counting out teabags in the rooms...)
1 beaten up toaster trying to service a sunday morning breakfast crowd.
The hot water running cold too soon...
The soaps in the bathrooms of questionable quality...
Boss, I am paying 6500 for 1 night in Lonavla ... its not Europe or Tokyo ...so I think i deserve better..
But really, there is no ugly...so the scales tilt between the good and the average....
The service team tried to put a brave face at breakfast despite infrastructure issues...
The breakfast menu could really have some more local flavor...(show me some thalle peeth...pooran poli...etc...not just bread ...
Pl put Amul butter on the table boss...not cheap margarine...Maharashtra is the land of milk...if nothing else, put plain white fresh churned butter...
For the rest Alok and his team do a cheerful Job!
PS : All 'very good' in this review and points below to be read as 'good' only!

Its a good place for Get together. Restaurants Vegetarian Restaurant is Separate. They also have Veg-Non-veg Combine but different restaurant. Place is Quiet. Ambianace is good. Rooms are3 Very Good too.
Great hotel at great room price and nice location

Very good hotel at great room prices and nice walkable location from Lonavala market. All the tourist places are well within reach from here due to its central location.
Offers very good variety breakfast and other lunch and dinner options, right within hotel campus. Room service and courteous staff at your service whenever required.
Some improvement areas -
1. Bathrooms should be slightly bigger in deluxe room.
2. Wifi can be better as everyday I needed to enter a new password to be able to connect.
3. Swimming pool needs an immediate revamp in the divider wall between kids pool and adult pool. With just a nominal wall between the 2 and sudden height increase from kids to adult pool, my daughter had a terrible experience of almost drowning in, had I not jumped in. Clearly shows a absence of lifeguard there.
Rising Star on the block

Everything that is new carries a freshness in itself , lonavla is a small hill station with lots of Hotels for accommodation , it gets difficult at times to find the perfect and affordable priced hotel for your stay , so if one is looking for a budget hotel that is full of comfort and convenience The Grand ViSava is the best of the lot. I had booked the entire Hotel for my family function and The hotel management to care of each one of all my 75 guests in the hotel. So i will give 7 star to the hotel for providing me everything that was required on time. Mr. Alok is the best Manager that you will find and he was avaliable 24/7 to support you. The rest of Staff was Great and Smiling all the the time. So next time one has lonavla for holiday in mind , Grand ViSava is what will give you the ultimate satisfaction. Go ahead and enjoy.
