Refreshing Trip to Mahabaleshwar with a Memorable Stay at Hotel Meghna Food Studio
on Jul 11, 2017
After a bout of hard work and hectic schedule at my office in Hyderabad I arrived at Pune on 30th May, 2017 morning along with my family for our trip to Mahabaleshwar. Almost after 3 hours of drive we checked into the hotel by afternoon.My wife had booked a room in the hotel just a fortnight ago. Due to summer vacation rush we couldn't manage to secure our accommodation within the city limits.This place was almost 5 kms before the town area on Pune - Mahabaleshwar road.But we had read some good reviews about Meghna Food Studio.
They gave us a warm welcome and the staff there made us feel at home. The well equipped and elegantly decorated room allotted to us made our stay cozy and comfortable.The balcony of the room overlooked into a panoramic view of the pictures environment around. The housekeeping and room service was prompt in responding. The hotel although has few rooms but its most convenient feature is the vegetarian restaurant attached to it serving a wide variety of sumptuous cuisine.The wax museum attached to the hotel is another added attraction there.The hotel's location proves to be it's advantage being away from the crowded hustle and bustle of the town, allowing us to enjoy the serene charm of Mahabaleshwar. The owner of the hotel Mr Dinesh is forthcoming,humble and always ready to help out the guests. It was a bargain deal to book a room here. Our stay turned out to be pleasant enhancing the joy of visiting Mahabaleshwar. We therefore extended our stay by another two days and finally left. on 4th June 2017 morning to Pune for our onward journey back to Hyderabad. The sweet memories of our stay at Hotel Meghna Food Studio lingers in our minds.And i strongly recommend this hotel to all those planning to visit Mhabaleshwar.

PATHETIC place to stay..WORST experience
on May 31, 2017
I stayed @ Hotel Meghna Foods, Mahableshwar in last week of MAy'17. I booked AC family room for 5 viz. 4 adults & 1 child (4y). Rooms was sold to me staying it is meant for 5. It was suitable only for a 2 persons. The same room was also offered to 2 people staying next door. So basically no difference in the room size although the price for my room was double.
Rooms were stinking all the time, especially combined washroom. It seems that the sewage from washrooms was just let out directly behind the rooms hence the bad smell was in the room all the time. I bought an air freshner on my own. Despite asking for it several times, management did not care.I changed our room but none of the problems were resolved. Only one person for house keeping (Sonu)& room service who takes care of 10-12 rooms. He was busy all the time. Hotel management is saving money by not increasing the stay or appointing training staff. No drinking water was made available even after calling room service several time. I got my water bottles filled from the restaurant area on my own. Room was not cleaned until we returned to hotel in the evening. We called several hotel management several times but no one pays attention. Once I returned in the evening & found room as I left in the morning. Even after leaving the room keys it was not cleaned. I asked for the broom & started to sweep the floor of my room on my own. No one really cared about this. Hotel staff is rude & careless. No professionalism.
AC did not work well. water is not available early morning. Geyser doesn't work. electric ports for charging phone, mosquito repellent does not work. Beds are like benches. hard & uncomfortable.
Other family guests staying next door & opposite to our room also had the same complaints. No one really cared about it.
Good part was only the food in their restaurant but expensive compared to the taste. Nothing is complimentary, not even morning tea which is available only after 8:30 am.
My vacation mood went totally off the moment I used to step in the hotel. I have stayed in hotels at different places in India & outside too. I never had such horrifying experience. Total waste of money.I would never recommend this hotel to anyone for stay. NEVER!!!
