“A High Valued Nightmare!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

I have Booked a 18 People Lions Club Group Tour in which my Parents was part of it, between 20th March 2012-27th March 2012 Co-ordinate d Directly via Hotel Director Mr.Vinod Maheshwari,in initial talks he was very soft & sounded professional on phone when I use to correspond with him & seeing the review on trip adviser, I shortlisted him Initially a online advance was demanded from his side after paying an X amount,The colors & mood of the said hotel director sir changed & whenever I use to ask small general things like soft copy of Food menu to be served & other programme details, He use to get Irritated on me,later a stage came before two days of starting of tour just for confirmation I called & he answered dont expect a Professional service from us or else I will refund your advance money. Lines such as " Dont Expect 5Star service in 2star rate were used in filthy manner" on phone call & e-mail exchange,seeing the preparations & mood of travelers,I calmed him & later prepared the full to be served food menu by self on judgement based on initial talks with hotel owner.

The First day In Kanha Resort was Nightmare again the rooms were full of termites,bugs,damaged internal doors,damaged blankets moreover,the food menu what we were suppose to get details was not supplied to the hotel staff & they made to skip our breakfast,later in lunch they served something very cheap things what we cant even find on a handcart lunch thali in Mumbai. After lots of heated arguments things were improved but not 100%.Rest arrangements like Vehicle co-ordination etc. was superb & things were good outside the hotel limits.

Then Bhedaghat Hotel was good as it Govt. of MP owned there we got good services via they were having good infra & professional services.

Then again at Hotel Pachmarhi the nightmare story begins " The hotel is said to be 2 star but as per inputs its not even to be called as Lodge,as it has very poor infra & disturbing location of a busy city street.Moreover,My parents were given a room next to reception on ground floor,so noise is unacceptable full whole day.

Moreover,the same evening a group of 50-60 college students from Rajkot visited the hotel & the hotel became an disco amusement park with there Masti & Noise, till the students sleep my group use to wait 4 them,so that they can sleep peacefully one time only.
This hotel has a very ltd.staff with a dirty clothes/uniform with them & most amazing thing they have "dual role cook" who use to sit at hotel reception & if required the same person use to serve tea to all rooms & prepare the same in kitchen.

The Said Pachmarhi Hotel is good for those who are expecting normal food at restaurant type,rest its a shear collective failure of hospitality name.

I would suggest the people who are willing to visit this hotel should not offer any advance money as later they offer cheap things to advance bookings & good things to those who visits the hotel & take rooms,as they have different size rooms starting from Match box size to 10x10 feet rectangular type rooms,so those who dare to adjust in such conditions should look after this hotel,rest in off season of Jan -March many many good 10 times better facilities are available in good rates,but with a risk called availability.

My vote would be except budget tour people,Just ignore this hotel & dont rely on the talks,data on net & hotel website.

Room Tip: Just select the Big Size Rooms after through checking of available infra in rooms

I selected this hotel based on the reviews of Tripadvisor. The hotel is quite good, at the price they offer. The Rooms of the hotels are quite spacious, cleanliness is satisfactory (since the hotel is one of Oldest hotel of Pachmarhi) and staff is supporting in nature.
I suggest to not make any advance booking and book after reaching at hotel itself, as all rooms of the hotel are not similar, and one should check rooms before check-in (also u may get discounts if it is not high season).
Pachmarhi is a good place with natural beauty, peaceful atmosphere a good place for outing with family (means full family with mother father etc.)

Room Tip: Choose Rooms with Balcony, they have bigger bathrooms.

I stayed at Hotel Pachmarhi in November 2011. The hotel is really nice with good quality food, nice ambience, clean and spacious rooms. The hotel staff are extremely kind and helpful. I would rate this hotel really high as compared to the price they charge. It is one of the oldest hotel there, but definitely one of the best. I would recommend one to definetely go and stay here.

Room Tip: Choose executive room

Hotel Pachmarhi is located right in the market area therefore eateries,shops and ATMs were quite nearby. Hotel had a small restaurant serving nice food though we found it charging more than other hotels in the vicinity but the service was really quick. People were really polite to talk to. Deluxe non A/C room we booked was quite spacious with a small balcony though we had to keep it closed most of the time due to monkeys's menace. Bed-sheet could have been cleaner and pillows softer but rather than these things, what interrupted our good night's sleep for initial 2 nights was a big college group staying in rooms adjacent to ours, making noise till 2 at night due to which we couldn't sleep peacefully. Staff was quite apologetic when we complained about this.
There was hot water in bathroom 24*7. We never faced any issue due to power cut. Hotel arranged for sightseeing for us at a reasonable rate. Our trip was satisfactory.

Pachmarhi is a place where almost whole day goes for sight seeing and u r so tired at the end of the day that all u need is a quiet place where u can go and sleep. Hotel Pachmarhi fits the bill very well as it is located just off the main market area so if u want to just take a stroll after dinner u can do it . The service is very prompt and good and the food quality is as good as any big town.
