The Hotel is not worth it. What the photos show it is just the opposite
on Apr 28, 2017
I am very sorry to say that the hotel is zero in its amenities. Telephone, geyser, light plugs were not working. I was totally disgusted the moment we entered the hotel. But since we had paid for three days I was forced to compromise. I left the hotel in two days then.
There is no parking space of the hotel and you have to park the car in a pay parking.
Overall experience not good. I would not recommend this place for a family
Weekend of HOLI
on Mar 14, 2017
Got room no .107.
First room on ground floor.
Very dirty bed linen.
No intercom n bell to contact reception.
Tv wasn't working n the staff exchanged the remote from another room on the 2nd day.
Our overnight bus reached by 6.30 am. N doors were closed till 7pm. Inspite of messaging the owner .we were left shivering in d cold.
Gyser doesn't work. N they ration out 3/4 bucket lukewarm water per per person.
No refund is given even if you cancel ur booking 3 days in advance.
Rs.1500 per room is open robbery for zero amenities crappy hotel
Budget hotel but lacking ammenties

We booked the hotel through ibibo during long weekend of 26th January. We got a good deal and booked it for two days for 1300 Rs only.
As far as location of Hotel is concerned, it is in market area, so it is good.
Walls of the Hotel are very thin, you can hear what other person is saying next to your room or even in gallery if someone is speaking to other person, you can hear it. And our bad luck, there were college students next to our room who wouldn't sleep before 2 AM in morning and was quite disturbing, even though complaint was done, but still hotel staff didn't ask them to keep their voice low.
In morning, there is too much annoyance from taxi drivers, during our stay daily 2-3 Taxi drivers will knock on door and ask if we want to book cab. This is very annoying actually, if I want I can book it myself by going down, no need to come to our room and disturb.
And for hot water, which is needed in winters in Mahabaleshwar, they don't have geyser in bathroom, you will have to call reception to get bucket of hot water.
Price is too much, we had breakfast in hotel for two people which costed 280 Rs just for breakfast.
Overall I didn't liked the hotel, not good for couple, for solo-travellers or groups of friends, it is fine.
Good budjet hotel

We spend 3 night 4 days in nells. hotel is near a main Market. Hotel is clean and neat. staff are very helpful. they not argue for the tips. Hot water is not in the room so hotel staff will provide the hot water bucket. Food is too costly not quality is also not much good. its better to take a food near hotel at main Market. hotel is good and within the budget.
Good food and location

Hotel Nells is an ok hotel in Mahabaleshwar. Had been here for 3 days/ 2 nights and I felt this hotel lacked quite a lot. To start with the rooms looked in need of some serious makeover. Regd the restaurant of the hotel, the food was good but too pricey and the service was lousy at times. Overall if you're going for a leisure trip try some better hotels unless you're on a very tight budget. One good thing about staying here is its proximity to the taxi stand, market and church.
