“Good One”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Stayed here for a day attending cousin's wedding. Food was good, rooms were clean and tidy and the service was decent. Swimming pool was clean and people were having good time out there. Lots of activities to do, they have a large ground where you can play badminton, cricket, lawn tennis etc.. In all a very good experience.

Golkonda resort is very picturesque with well manicured lawns and well maintained greenery. The rooms are spacious. Nice pool. Big area providing cool long walks. Buffet lunch and dinner was OK. On the whole, nice short-getaway place.

Golkanda is a lovely property along the Gandipet reservoir on the outskirts of Hyderabad. The location is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city (closer to the airport) and the property is huge and very picturesque.

Whether it's the perfectly manicured lawns that invite you to walk around, or a drink by the pool - the place is ideal for laying back & relaxing for a couple of days. The rooms are fully functional with all amenities in place. The washrooms are quite liberal in size.

Overall a very pleasant place for a quick getaway.

This 4-star Resort property is a real gem in the dry & crowded landscape around Hyderabad - only a half-hour from the Airport & situated away from the crowds & traffic of the City, near the Gandipet reservoir which supplies the City. It is sited on an old property of the Nizam's summer resort. It is indeed an oasis of calm, around 13 acres of well-landscaped greenery, trees & shrubbery with swimming pools in the middle, with cottages ringed around them. It has around 44 rooms, and with a large convention centre attached. A large open-air Amphitheatre with a Stage is suitable for shows & performances. It also has 'Angsana', a very good Spa, and a Gym, & also facilities for tennis, squash & indoor games.

The Cottage room we stayed in was well-appointed, a large bed-sitting room with an ample King-sized bed, a partitioned seating area for five with a flat-panel TV which could swivel for viewing from both the sitting area and the bed., minifridge, phone, chest of draws and wifi connection. There was also an attached large bathroom separated by another partitioned area with a sliding door, with large almirahs & a dressing area. The fittings included a large bathtub, a wash-basin on a platform, hair-dryer, ironing board, safe etc. There was also a small verandah just outside the room with an easychair, for lounging & taking in the poo & garden views.

All the amenities were in a good condition, & we only had a problem with the lamp over the washbasin mirror which was not working, and only two coathangers were to be seen in the Almirahs. Both these, were, however rectified quickly when we complained to Housekeeping ! Room service was also surprisingly quick, considering the fair distance from the kitchen.

The Resort has a Coffee Shop cum multi-cuisined restaurant, as well as a Tower Restaurant with a panoramic view. We found the buffet breakfasts & lunches quite ample & varied with a fair choice of Western, Indian & S.Indian cuisine. Overall food quality was quite good. The classic cocktails we ordered from the Bar were quite nicely prepared & served. Even though the meals were buffet-style mostly, even our a la carte orders were also served promptly without complaint or much delay. The F&B Manager as well as the waiters, both male & female, were always pleasant & eager to please.

My wife used the services of the Spa, & said that the Thai-based massage treatment was quite good.

All in all, a very good option to escape the noise & bustle of Hyderabad, especially for a quiet & relaxing weekend ! But do try to check in advance whether any Corporate Meets are planned, which could ruin all the peace & quiet !

Room Tip: You may wish to choose the cottages at the rear of the property, slightly away from the pools &...

I just had a bad experience with these guys. After booking a reservation well in advance, they canceled the reservation on the last day due to some maintenance problem and they offered me a choice to stay at they Hotel instead of the Resort. I outright rejected their proposal and asked them cancel it.

Even if the maintenance problem was genuine, I feel that they couldn't handle it well.

This was my second visit and we did not find same kind of standard as the same we had in my first visit.
Starting from reception took 15 mins for Check In and no one escorted us. Also did not get any courtesy call because in my first visit we experienced it. We requested for late check out upon arrival and reception staff approved for the same but on next day we were start getting a call please vacate the room because our check out time is 12 noon. Staff needs more training specially at reception. Services of Housekeeping did not able to provide on time. I am surprised to see other good comments.
Food was good and restaurant staff was quite helpful. We were happy to see the surrounded greenery.
