“Good stay but can improve on food”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Bit higher on the cost though looks like the best location. The food is not that great nor its value for money. They have beautiful location with good lawn tennis courts. Recommended if you need luxury with higher cost.

Room Tip: Choose Valley Side or Valley Plus, there's hardly any difference.

Thank you for the feedback, however most of our guest do feel that we are very reasonable when compare to other hotels in panchgani and Mahabaleshwar.

Your remark on the food is noted and measure will be taken to make it value for money.


Regards,
Ravine Hotel.

The Hotel is located at the Sydney point and has a lovely view from its large wall sized window. The bed & the room are very cozy and pleasant. Food at the restaurant is okay. The game room is not maintained at all.

Dear Koyel,

Thanks for your review and photos of our hotel, we are extremely sorry for the game room as it was closed for renovations.
Hope you will enjoy our game rooms also on your next trip to Panchgani.

The Hotel is right below Sydney point, just after the tourist tax collection. The parking is a bit cramped space for about 15 cars. It’s a two storied building.

I had informed the hotel that I would be arriving late. Checking in was not a problem at all. The lobby is nice and big with the restaurant at the rear.

I had booked a valley side room and my expec tations were high. I was put up in Room No.206. The room was strictly ok. Very basic amenities and no wardrobe, you get a small ‘box’ below the Television to put in your luggage; the bottom of this box is taken up by a large Godrej electronic safe box (10x6x10). Most of your luggage stays on the floor, dressing table or on the center table. Lucky I was carrying only one duffel bag. The room had a split air-conditioner and a fan

The wash room is ok; warm water 24 hrs which is a blessing.

One more point to note, the room has a connecting door to Room 205. It seemed to me, they open up the doors for a big family, not a great room to stay in if you are a honeymooning couple.

Next day morning I woke up and was anticipating a fabulous view of the valley while sipping my cup of tea. I opened the curtain which are full length and hide the fact that there are no full length French windows. The windows have a barricade wall inside which is 4 feet tall. No chance of looking at the valley while sipping tea. Look at the clouds. If you are staying here during summer you will have a very sunny stay.

If you stand at the window you have a fabulous view of the river Krishna and the valley. You can also see the tennis courts from the rooms.

We ordered teat Rs.25.00 per cup. Tea not great! Order the Kettle at Rs.50 it’s worth the money.

We decided to take a tour of the hotel this is what I found.

- The gardens are ok and the swimming pool not worth taking a dip.
- The tennis courts are great
- There is an Art Gallery which was closed during our visit
- A mini theater
- Gym ok
- A restaurant

After a days worth of shopping at Mahabaleshwar we came back tired. My wife did not want to go down to the restaurant to eat so decided to order room service. Big disappointments here, first they only serve starters and snacks in the room. We ordered a few starters and cold drinks. We informed room service to clear the plates and the service guy came the next morning. The food is so-so, the chicken crispy tastes like chicken chilly and the masala papad was soggy by the time it was delivered. For food you have to go down to the restaurant.

One other thing I observed that drinking water takes its own time to come. I have stayed at different hotels and noticed that they always a jug of water with room service and take the old one out. The water was only replaced once and that too on request.

The restaurant has one of the best views of the valley. The best place to sit and have a cup of steaming coffee and enjoy the scenery. The only plus point of this hotel is the restaurant. Sad that the restaurant is closed to non guests; I would have stayed somewhere else and come to the restaurant for my Tea.

Over all a very normal hotel with very Ok service and a restaurant with a great view.

I spend my new year there, the first look and entrance is the best of its kind in panchgani, I face many issues in the hotel few of them are as below :
1) Stoppage of water supply
2) No hot water flow
3) Reminders for the order give in Room
4) Late Room service
5) Not listening to us over phone, keeping before we finish
5) Difference in the knowledge of room service. Reception people says tooth
brush is free and room service people say same is chargeable
6) New year party was very bad. It was better if starters were served out side
itself. There was no checking is who purchased the pass and not even in the
Resturant. I have invited a guest from Pune who purchased the pass from
counter mr Romil but he and his fiancée were not checked at all for food also.
Early close up of party. Food available till 12.30 am only. Food was tasty but
not available onetime
7) Soft spoken is missing with majorly all the staff exact the housekeeping
head (blue shirt guy) Every spoke rudely as they are doing favour to us.
8) In room fresh hill air circulation is less need window sliders

OVER ALL
VERY BAD EXPERIENCE. I WAS RECOMMENDED BY ARBAAZ KHAN (FILM ACTOR) AND NOW
REALLY NOT IN MOOD TO VISIT THIS HOTEL INSTEAD WILL VISIT RAMSUKH OR KEYS.

BEST THING OF YOUR HOTEL
1) VALUE FOR MONEY
2) FOOD IS EXCELLENT
3) PROPERTY VIEW IS GOOD

Stayed at this hotel during my visit to Mahabaleshwar-Panchgani in June 2011. Overall a pleasant experience. The rooms were well maintained, the staff were cordial, the location was scenic and good value for money. Some of the amenities like pool room, badminton court etc was not made available to guests even at a price - I assume they are non-operational.
