“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

We had couple of night stay at Anandvan in Nov. first week. We were 4 families. This place is very near to Panchgani/Mahabaleshwar. We had chosen 'Indradanu' rooms. Rooms were quite specious and wel maintained. Staff was polite and Service was good. Food was just above average, but nothing really to complain about. Ideal place for bigger groups to relax and have some good time. Also checked other rooms, they were little congested. But overall it was very good experience.

I've stayed at Anandvan Holiday Home 4 times in the past 4 years. I bring groups of American college students to Wai for a service learning project and we're a needy bunch. The proprietor, Anand, always goes out of his way to help make our stay lovely and to take care of us. We take most of our meals at the place and he makes sure that we have a good variety of tasty and healthy foods prepared carefully. He gets to know the group members and truely becomes friends with his guests. The resort is lush and green with a great variety of flowering plants and fruit trees. It's located amid green fields and we enjoy the sounds of birds and frogs in the morning and evening. It's nice to have a few pets on the grounds as well. All of the smiling staff are eager to please, be it delivering wake up chai to our rooms or helping the students to put on their new saris. The accommodations are simple and rustic, nothing fancy, but comfortable. It's the service that really shines here.

I really enjoyed the tranquillity of this place. First, the staff are very nice, helpful and accommodating. We had a lovely dinner one night in their patio and the breakfasts were fine. It looks like some new deluxe units are almost completed so things are improving. I stayed there for a few nights while exploring Wai and surrounding villages. After being in places like Kochin where I felt most people were sizing me up to see how many tourist dollars they could pry out of me, I liked the feeling of genuine hospitality in this out of the way place in the hills. The power went out a time or two and the hot water was not there every time I wanted to bathe but in general my room was clean and comfortable.

One of the worst place i ever had been from last few years.
Only plus point going to this place is its locations otherwise in terms of service its pathetic.

1. They don't provide all the services and amenities which are present on the website.
2. Rooms are not clean and a bad smell even make one's life in misery after charging high.
3. No campfire and no bullock cart ride as promised.
4. Telephone Intercomm doesn't work properly.
5. Pathetic Food.

I wouldn't recommend anybody to go there..!!! Its a risk..!!!!

Only part what I enjoyed was weather.!! The Owner/ Manager doesn't even reply properly once u are in there..!!!

Room Tip: A/C Rooms are quite OK. but rest is pathtic
