“Decent Resort, but needs makeover”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We traveled to Mahableshwar and stayed at this resort during Nov2013. Booking was done through a travel portal. There were enough signboards as we entered Mahabaleshwar, which made finding the hotel a breeze. The last 200 meter of the road leading to the resort was in a real bad shape and we drove very slowly to avoid damaging the car.

The resort is well spread out and in the midst of a jungle. Hence, very peaceful. From the time we stopped our car to till we departed from the resort, the staff went out of our way to make our stay a pleasure.

Pros :
- Well Spread out , giving a feeling of space, peace and solitude
- Extremely attentive and courteous staff - they even switched on the geysers at mid day when we arrived so that we can have a bath after a long journey (normally Hot water is available only in the morning).
- Excellent food (vegetarian)
- Good rooms (we stayed in Splendid Rooms) - spacious and had everything that we expected
- A very nice and clean swimming pool (we did not use but could see it was well maintained)

Cons :
- The resort does not have a good view (even from our first floor rooms)
- The overall maintenance is not good - you can find open wires, rusting metal, heaps of stonechips, bricks, open cartons, etc around the resort - something that can be addressed
- Slightly overpriced for the quality they offer

Overall, it has been a very enjoyable stay for our family, esp since we were looking for some peace and solitude in the resort

Room Tip: Opt for the "Splendid AC" room. They are good. Try room 312 - it looks out to the woods

We were there in the Regal Resort with 2 of my sons and my cousin family and their daughter. The very nice thing or the in thing about this hotel is the kind of hospitality of the staff is excellent, my children very much felt at home with the kind of the food they served , they always welcome your custom menu apart from what they serve.Also when one of us was unwell with light stomach upset, they were ready with jawa and kind of food required for us. The table tennis and carrom board even though they were not in good condition, my kids enjoyed the place. Its the best place to stay with family in Mahabaleshwar .

Hotel Rooms were Good ,neat & clean. We had taken 2 splendid rooms for two days. Toilets were clean. Service was good. Has good restaurant but it is pure veg. Ate 1 lunch there ,it was unlimited with staff trying to serve you more & more , a typical Gujarati food. Has swimming Pool but hardly any one was using it. Had play area/ Parking but it was under renovation when we visited it . It is around 1km or less away from main central market area of mahabaleshwar but you have to climb hill to go there. Reception people were helpful .

Room Tip: If you are going there with your own vehicle than it is a good hotel

I stayed in regal for 3 days package.....awesome hotel and food is also good but only veg, even location is littlle far from the market but you will love this place. Only this property new a renovation because everything is here is very old even bathroom need new amenities. Bathroom was neat and clean buy bath tub was so old that we have to think twice before using it. One suggestion hotel should give free pick up and drop from bus stop as a goodwill.

We visited Mahabaleshwar in 02nd week Aug & stayed at this property considering the reviews. Overall the stay was pretty good except the fact that hotel needs renovation. It looks little shady & old... Rooms have the basic white color & are decent. Bathrooms are OK though they try & keep it clean.. Food was of good quality & service was also good. Probably that was the only part we can cherish... The hotel has good location & place so if maintained, it will be one of the best place to stay... We stayed in Exotic Rooms which is little better than the Splendid Rooms.. Lastly the approach road becomes very bad during monsoon. Hotel management should take some notice about the same & do something atleast to keep road in motorable condition

Room Tip: Exotic Rooms are better which are in the main wing, Splendid rooms are not in the main wing

We spent 2 days in this resort (9 and 10 august). The rooms are very spacious and clean, the food is good and staff curteous. We are nature lovers and just fell in love with the surroundings.
This place is covered with trees all over....very peaceful...very rejuvinating. This place is recommended for poeple who want to enjoy nature.

Room Tip: choose splendid rooms as they are forest facing
