“I had a very good experience...”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

The place is far from the crowded area... cool calm and silent... the rates is very reasonable compared to other hotels in lonavala... the rooms were clean and have a very good view form the balcony...
the staff were very co operetive... Sp.Mr Ali who's the Manager... they do not have kitchen but provided breakfast and food from outside to the room.
They have billiard table and table tennis and carrom for time pass...
In fact i would suggest others not to go just by few people review but experience it once....
I really loved my stay...

Room Tip: Please go for room number 15

I agree with pankaj111 asking to stay away from this hotel. Similar experience.
The owner gives one rate on phone, then on reaching the place, hikes it up saying he never committed on earlier price, happened with me when I had my family with me and elderly parents, told him at least don't do this when you see elderly customers just bcause you now have some more walk in customers. A very opportunistic owner, who is a good salesman.

Finally his wife had to force him to agree....very bad experience and not a resort by any means.
Real price should not be more than 1200-1500 max. No swimming pool, no restaurant, owners have a thali restaurant at their home opp to this lodge, operating only on weekends.....

Rooms dnt have sufficient light, the balcony being the saving grace.

I visited this during the weekend of 9th august. Don't go by the name, it is not at all a resort. All the pictures shown are false. They do not even have TV connection, AC doesn't work and even hot water facility is not there. The rooms are very dimly lit with very bad ambience. The room floor was so sticky and smelly. They do not have resturant of there own, we ordered food from nearby hotel. Even after paying high for the food and additional delivery charges, the food was horrible. The hotel is situated far away from main market area, which causes additional burden to travel to any visiting locations. Not worth staying there, waste of money.

I have found that deals of this resort is best in comparison to any resort in Lonavala. Normal rate is Rs 4000 to 10,000 based on demand & season. But Girivihar is offering very reasonable rates, around the year. Good luck!

here you get more than what you pay,the charges are very minimal as compared to other hotels in lonavala,the service is good,the behaviour of the boy present there is nice.rooms are clean.The problem is with the breakfast which i think is very normal,just poha with tea,That is an area where they can improve.Over all a good experience.It is not a very high quality property but then the charges are also less to make for that.

Room Tip: prefer higher floor

I bought a deal from snapdeal for this place in lonavla, as it was really economical. I then went on to read the reviews. there was a mixed response from visitors, some liked it, while some didnt.
I went there with zero expectations and i was not disappointed. The place is ok. The cleanliness level is also ok. The room we got was the one with the best view, so that was like a saviour.
it is secluded so is calm, and if you need to take rest, this is the place to be. The staff is really polite and helpful. All in all it was an average experience, but with the kind of money i spent, i cannot complain.

Room Tip: Ask for room no.11 or 1. they r the ones with the best view.
