“A HOME AWAY FROM HOME”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

We are regular guests for last 30 years. The management is very good. The campus is fantastic, very safe for children to play. The owners take a personal interest to ensure that all guests are comfortable.

The food is fantastic.

Last but not the least the service is personal and exceptional.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Girivihar a great place for a short family break. Plus its located close to the main market. The rooms are clean, cosy and spacious. The tariff is also pretty decent cos it includes all meals and breakfast etc. The staff is very cordial and cooperative. i have been visiting this place since 1994. nd its just fabulous!!!! its not like a commercial hotel. its very calm and peaceful.

Girivihar is a great family hotel to stay in Mahabaleshwar. Located at a close proximity from the market this property offers clean, cosy and spacious room to stay with your family. The tariff though slightly on the higher side includes all meals, snacks, breakfast etc. The main highlight of this hotel is the authentic Maharashtrian food offered at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its like eating at home. This is a treat especially for Maharashtrians. The staff is very cordial and cooperative. I recommend this property for a memorable stay in the lap of nature. With a small temple in the compound , one can even meditate in the calmness of the premises.

My family has been a patron of this hotel for more than two decades,and I holidayed a lot here as a child.On a recent weekend break,we decided to give vent to our nostalgia and booked their best room for two days.We were in for a very rude shock,however.Gone are the days when their service was impeccable,rooms spotless and food mouth watering.The staff was extremely unhelpful and in some cases downright rude.The rooms smelled faintly of left over food that had rotted,and the food was so terrible,i threw up within minutes of the first meal.We had booked a premium room solely because we wanted 24 hours hot water supply,however,they switched the hot water off at 6 pm on the first day and kept fobbing our request for hot water off,stating the pump was not working.After we settled our bill on the second day and informed the management that we would leave sometime during the night,we were INSTRUCTED not requested,to leave asap,as otherwise,there would be no one to open the gate for us.this,when we had actually paid for 12 more hours anyway.For the same tariff you can hire rooms and services that are 20 times more luxurious in many more hotels in the area,like we have been doing for the past 3 years,my husband and I will take our custom back to ravine hotel in panchgani and desist from wasting our money on girivihar.

This is a nice hotel. Near Mahabaleshwar Market , yet cozy and quiet. Has nice and maintained campus, not too big. The staff and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are neat, clean, well maintained, but still simple and comfortable. A nice temple inside the campus where elder members of the family feel at home.
Food is great. Maharashtrian Meals unlimited food and great variety.
Not too expensive and comfortable. They should add some games / play area for children of all ages.

Girivihar is 1 of the oldest hotels in mahabaleshwar. This nice, cozy, old styled htel is 5 mins fro the market and yet very quite. The rooms are nice simple big cottage like. Dnt expect it to give you lavish interiors but the simplicity appeals more. The campus is huge. food provided is simple. Service is very friendly and waiters are polite.
overall a very nice, cozy typical mahabaleshwar styled old hotel at affordable rates. :) :) :)
