“A most satisfying holiday”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Was looking for a short holiday close to home. Some friends recommended 'home stay' at Dala Rooster, Panhgani. Got a reply to my enquiry within an hour, the dates I had asked for were booked, alternate dates were suggested and the booking completed within a couple of hours.
We were surprised by the place when we reached Panchgani.Everything was perfect. The location of Dala Rooster, the ambience of the rooms and the excellent service provided by the care takers.
I would rate the quality of food served as the better than what we got in the highly rated restaurants in Panchgani.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We always stayed in Mblwar, the senior sibling and were fed up with the commercialization of the place. This was our first visit to Panchgani. We asked our friends and also asked " Google " for reco's. We got all typical names and were about to Zero onto the standard "Adda's " when an article i had saved from Thirophillia was used to doube check the choice. Surprise.
We got " Dala Rooster" as the place to go.
We checked out yesterday morning ( its past midnight, now ) so i can definitely say, that it was the right choice, baby.
Capt Gokhale was present and made it more memorable. Does that mean that the staff takes care only if Capt is around, Of course not . The husband wife combo take great pains to make sure you are comfortable. the first day we did not want to eat dinner in house, so Capt and Staff gave us multiple options. However my advise, if you want " wholesome home food" stick to Dala rooster inhouse cooking. Do not miss the tea. She adds Ginger and makes it with less milk. Wonderful. Definitely coming back, but, now, Dala rooster or Dala Mare. Uff, now i have a choice.

No doubt regarding all above mentioned pts..but wot i really like is value for the customer. Really, staff here in dala rooster run for u all the time.
2ndly in my opinion wot makes me surprised is paintings and art work is created by whole Gokhale family. No professional paintings on any wall. This shows how deeply owner is looking towards..it feels like you are staying in your own house..

“Housewife”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed with family for 3 nights in July 2015. Had a wonderful time. Booking was very fast and easy. Booked 2 rooms. Our rooms were on the upper level with a great view of the Bhilar waterfalls and the valley. The staff is well trained and looked after us very well. Breakfast and dinners were made to order and was very good. The location is very good as it is very near the main market of panchgani but away from the hustle bustle. Property is maintained very well. Would definitely visit often.

Spent two nights at Dala Rooster recently with 8 adults . It was raining heavily so could not venture out and had to stay indoors..The specious property lay out, prompt service provided by the staff made us feel very comfortable.

“Dala Rooster Panchgani - Excellent”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Dala Rooster with our extended family for one day/night on 14th / 15th June 2015. It's a superb property with stunning valley facing view. At the peak of monsoon and during winter, it will be even more beautiful. Staff is very helpful and courteous. Property is very well maintained and generally neat and clean. Food is cooked as per the order. They will arrange for barbeque as per the requirements. Special mention about caretakers who will make your stay pleasant and comfortable. In short, you will feel at home at Dala Rooster.
