“Average resort”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

We travelled to Mahabaleshwar from Mumbai using our own car. We had booked the MTDC resort a couple of months in advance. The check-in was smooth but the huge area this resort covers meant that the person accompanying us to our room had to be accommodated in our car.

The room was basic with damp patches on the wall. The cleanliness was OK.

The restaurant they have inside the resort serves good food and is affordable. Also, the distance to the market from the resort meant that we had to take the car each time we wanted to visit the market.

It is a bit scary if you venture out at the night as the roads are not very well lit and there are no people walking!

This property is supposedly at the best location of Mahabaleshwar.. It would have been a great place to stay about 30 years back when it was last renovated.. since then no renovation has happened.. the beds sofa sets Tv's all are age old.. including the uphosltry.. Ofcourse its quite cheap.. but I would not recommend it if you are planning a memorable trip..

Room Tip: Cottages are the most expensive ones.. but you feel like you are staying in an haunted house.

The location is superb and is a welcome break for urban types who want to avoid the noise and pollution. Endless roads, scnecic roads, fresh care - can one ask for more. However the rooms are a turn back to 1975's or earlier, the services are bureaucratic - 4 different attendants for 4 jobs like sweeping / loo / blankets / telephone in todays multitasking age !! The food is pathethic - its a veg non-veg combined restaurant with a single kitchen which put off veggies like us !

Room Tip: Worth a try

Duration of stay: 2 nights during Nov 2013
Room: Family Suite

Pros:
- Family Suite is very spacious. It had two bedrooms and a living room
- The on-site restaurant has room service - a rarity in a state TDC
- The place is very quiet and walk to the sunset point is quite enjoyable.
- Food was not great, but definitely palatable. They open early for breakfast.

Cons:
- Rooms are not just tired, they are positively dreary. The walls are mold ridden, floors dirty, faucets dripping and sinks leaking. I have stayed in many a government run hotels and this is definitely the worst maintained of all.
- Location is not great if you want to get to town often. You will need your own transportation.

Room Tip: I hope they will renovate the rooms soon. Ask if they have anything built in this century.

I had the opportunity to visit MTDC Mahabaleshwar in the month of september 3013. One thing I must confess their property location is simply awesome. It is about 2 kms from the main market. It is very close to Tiger path and Sunset point. Its akin to staying amoungst nature. Having a personal vehicle makes sense as taxi's are not easily available and if available, they charge exorbitantly. The rooms are basic with tv connection. The bathroom and toilet is really huge. The rooms are cleaned once in the morning with phenol. The bedsheets and the blankets are also changed then. The best thing is it is equipped with storage water heater. You get 24 hr warm water. Their cafeteria is pretty good. You have the option with veg as well as non veg readily available. The food is quite tasty but on oilier side. Room service is also provided. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The resort is undergoing renovation now. This resort has the potential to become a fantastic resort, only if govt takes more interest in developing tourism in Maharashtra. Also one must remember that mobile signal is nonexistent when one enters the room. Overall its a real value for money resort....

The maintenance is very poor.

we stayed in a family suite- it has 3 huge rooms and two attached bathrooms but one of the room was without any windows ( causes suffocation ) and the view from other room is crappy as the windows were facing the backside. all family suites and standard rooms and economy rooms are same. The cottages are the only exception in terms of view but again maintenance is not something to be talked about.

The MTDC restaurant is superb with really good food and at a decent rate. we all 6 of us had a full-filling experience just at 600 bucks - unbelievable!

if you forget the rooms ( walls were totally damp due to the rains ) the location was just awesome.

Do not hire local cabs sight-seeings - they usually will rip you off ( get a car from Mumbai or Pune and enjoy you stay )

Room Tip: the rooms are all quiet but if you stay near the restaurant then you'll have to walk less for yo...

I visited Mahabaleshwar and booked MTDC resort. This was an awesome experience with my family. Cottage were well clean, feeling like home, food were not up to the mark but you have a lot of options in Mahabaleshwar for same. Punchgani is also a good place along with Mahabaleshwar. I loved the stay in MTDC resort in Mahabaleshwar.
