Have been visiting this hotel since 1984 and believe me its been the best places to stay and have food in Kolhapur ever since. Though other options might offer better accommodation in Kolhapur, staying at Opal is like staying in Luxury with a strong history. A landmark in Kolhapur. Corporate preferred place to hold annual/monthly meeting here since decades. Ample parking space. Restaurant menu is varied and the "thali" system is stomach filling experience. You have to wait to get a place to sit in the restaurant. Non-veg dishes are just marvelous particularly the 'Kolhapuri" ones.
