Sterling Lonavala
Ranked #13 of 70 Hotels in Lonavala
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and were happy with the facilities provided. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. In fact, the entire premises are very clean and well maintained. Room service is also good. Food served in the restaurant is very tasty, although slightly expensive. The small lawn and the swimming pool provide a place for relaxation in the morning and evening. The location just next to the highway is surprisingly not very bad in terms of noise and pollution. Main market is about 45 minutes walking distance from the resort. And last but not the least, we felt the hotel is under-staffed, but the staff is excellent - very co-operative and friendly. Overall, we had a pleasant stay the Under the Over in Lonavla.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the back side of the hotel, away from the roadside.

I stayed at this Resort named 'Under the Over' (previously Mayur) for two nights with my wife during fourth week of February/2014. The Resort can by approached by Mumbai - Pune Expressway. From Mumbai city, the distance is about 95 kms. while from Pune the distance is about 60 kms. The Resort is located at khatri park near well known Wax Museum. We had a bit difficulty in locating the resort from Pune side of the Expressway. We contacted Resort Reception over phone and located the resort promptly.

Unlike other Resorts developed by Sterling Holidays at various places in India, this property has been acquired on lease. The space around the main building is limited and gives a sort of 'hotel' feeling - not a resort. However within the limited space availability, Sterling has managed to offer the guests facilities for comfortable stay and relaxation. The Rooms are equipped with necessary facilities of a 3 Star Budget Hotel and you get a cozy feeling. However no facility for Internet is available. The Dining Hall is spacious and you get varieties of food items. However the price is a bit on the higher side which is understandable in consideration of location of the resort. For members a discount is offered if Breakfast and Lunch is taken in combination. Both breakfast and dinner are offered Buffet.with varieties of items and we found the food items quite tasteful. Children are not charged for food. For Lunch you will have to give specific orders for food items. At 3rd. Floor there is a snack bar for Tea/Coffee and snacks which remains open from 4 pm to 7 pm. At one side of this place 'Activity Room' is located where adult as well as children can take part in indoor games/entertainment. At one side of the property, there is a small area where children can take part in outdoor activities/games. At one side of this area, there is a mini swimming pool which can be used by guests with prior permission. A certain amount is charged for use of this facility. The Travel desk arranges for site seeing tours. We took half day local site seeing tour in A/C car for INR 2000 which was quite enjoyable. On the whole our stay at this resort was pleasant and we returned with a happy experience. We will come back to this place again in near future.

Room Tip: Select 1st or 2nd Floor rooms facing the Expressway.

The rooms are average small. The bathrooms are not that clean. Food is fine but very expensive. There is kinara dhaba 5 kms away may be you can have the lunch/dinner there. Swimming is small but fine for kids, they enjoy it

The Hotel is really nice with a large lawn and a small swimming pool. We enjoyed a lot while I was here with my family. Though the restaurant was little expensive, the food was good. The room is spacious and the bathroom is very clean. The location of the hotel is far from the city, but we enjoyed since it was quite and calm. The only PROBLEM that we had was that we reached the hotel in the morning around at 9 am and they didn't let us check-in since the check-in time was 12 noon!! I was quite upset about it since I was with family but then we planned to utilize the time more efficiently and visited the wax museum which is located close to the hotel and definitely worth a visit. While some statues are excellent and gives you a feeling that "Wow! how did they manage to do this!", others are OK and a decent attempt (atleast they have not disfigured anyone). For other site seeing you can hire a car which will take you around. You can take an auto from the hotel to the city area (near the bus stand) and hire a car from there which would be cheaper compared to the one arranged from the hotel or you can talk to the guard at the wax museum and he will give you to two/three care hire agency numbers and you can call them up and also negotiate.

Room Tip: If possible go for the swimming pool/lawn facing room! I am sure the view will be better then the ro...

Enjoyable stay made all the better by friendly staff. Good swimming pool. Food was very good, with a choice of having a full meal or snacks. At the weekend traditional music in the restaurant. Room was comfortable, but not exceptional. Our lasting memory is of the helpful friendly staff, we hope to stay again.

This hotel is cramped and the rooms are very small. The location does not give you any feeling of lonavala. The rooms have a bad smell specially the towels smell very bad. The food is highly over priced. Funny thing, they will charge service tax on the buffet menu also.
The rooms on first floor face a garage on the opposite side of the road.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor rooms.
