i dont think summer is the right time to visit panchgani its the rainy season ... and that too if u r staying at IL Plazzo. this was my third stay at his hotel but the 1st after the management changed.
there was a bit hesitation when i was greeted by Mr. Farram n den came to know that management had changed.
anyways Gr8 place to stay. we stayed in 404 n 405 perfect rooms for a group of 4 or a family... all amenities provided in the room. tableland in back drop and beautiful garden and landscaping in front.
talking about the food one will love it right from breakfast.. But Mr. Davierwalla the lunch and dinner were not that tempting comparing to the one i enjoyed in the earlier stays. yes few changes are required in taste.
i feel u need to increase ur manpower as the existing ones i feel they are over burden and not happy with their work.
as the other guests have mentioned in their reviews the room service needs to be improved.
i suppose there is a electricity problem in panchgani and u have the generators but it so happened that we had to personally call up someone at the desk to inform him that there was no power in the room then after a long time some body use to come n personally switch it on.
but whatsoever i like this place ill recommend IL Palazzo to others and will definitely come back as from the few things mentioned above the rest makes it a memorable stay..
