Restaurant - High Cost and poor service are show stoppers. A couple has to pay 4000Rs for two buffet meals and ala carte options are not available in Weekends
The location of the hotel is excellent.ambiance is very good.calm and peaceful place.only minus point that food is very expensive.buffet lunch and dinner was Rs.750/- Per person.we preferred to have our food at an outside restaurant.breakfast was included in our package.it was good,not excellent.
The new ambience is international
The Top to Down Hotel- Pool at the Top and Staying Rooms below that Lift with Music Good Food and Good Rooms
No clarity on Room charges i,e what is chargeable & what is free No Swimming suits available for swimming Very less items for Breakfast
Good location and views, well furnished rooms with good service though the food is expensive. Over all a comfortable stay.
On arrival the desk staff had no idea about my booking which was done on Booked.net, also i had put a request for an extra person in my room prior to arrival and was charged much much more than the tariff printed and the reason given to me from the front desk was that since my booking on the internet was such a good deal thats why they were charging more for the extra person. That was blunt!
Hotel has great location
Hotel didn't have details of reservation. The room a/c was very very loud.
Good View of Sahyadri Hills.... Nice rooms to stay in. We got upgraded to the cottage which was amazing. Team did its best to make our stay memorable. Appreciate it.
No directions from the main road. We need to stop for few times to ask for the resort.
It has been upgraded from my impressions of 1980s and 1990s.location is great.
Food can be better. I tasted fried fish which was cold. In the rooms the lighting was OK. In the bathroom it was bad. There should be light on top of the mirror near the washbasin. This helps when one has to shave !!
All o/K. Excellent Ambience.
Lack of Wine choice, very little stock 2/3 bottles of Indian / Local wines, after these were finished the options were wines costing 5x price.??
Staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent location. Peaceful. Rooms are neat and clean.
Breakfast could have more variety. More staff should be added in restaurants, bars and cafe. Spa facilities should be improved as it an beautiful resort. More space and concentration should be given to spa also. Like to see more of spa facilities as I would definitely visit next time.
Disorganized staff, poor communication very slow internet
