Honeywood Holiday Homes Hotel
Ranked #16 of 53 Hotels in Mahabaleshwar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 May 2012

For our marriage anniversary, we wanted a peaceful location..this is what we got in HoneyWood. This B&B is in midst of forest, lovely location.
Room service was good. Food was good, only thing you need to order 2 hrs beforehand.
Rooms are spacious, bathrooms can be revamped for some good feel, 24*7 hot water is bliss.
We booked double room here, unfortunately it doesn't had a single window and on ground floor, closed with surrounding walls.So, no view at all and damp smell all the time. Though staff was courteous enough to arrange for room freshner still after sometime smell resurfaces.
Disappointed with the room.
This B&B is for those who have come with their own vehicle and those who love the nature, there are some trekking trails around, early morning walk is fun.
We enjoyed our stay except the foul smell in room by spending more time outside the room.
If you want to visit choose a villa here, double rooms are not for those who love a view from their balconies and cool breeze.
Hotel is pretty basic, just what we wanted..no fancy things like swimming pool and jacuzzi.

Quiet, well-run place far from crowds but only accessible by car and need small-ish car as parking can get tight. Very friendly, helpful staff. Great for getaway for family & friends. Limited menu but all good.

Room Tip: Book in advance

If you want to relax and be in the midst of nature Honeywood is the place for you. Tucked in the woods, near the valley, away from the maddening crowd of Mahabaleshwar this hotel offers you an excellent peaceful stay.
Even though we stayed here in the month of May, a cool breeze from the valley throught the day ensured that we did not feel the summer heat. I would recommend a stay at Honeywood to all nature lovers looking for a break from the hustle-bustle of the city.


Plus points:
- Excellent location
- Rooms are not over priced even in the peak season
- Clean spacious rooms with 24 hour electricity
- Clean toilets with 24 hours hot water
- Rooms have a TV for the tv buffs
- Play area for the kids with slide and swing
- Small sit-out for the garden facing rooms
- Decent sized lawn with tables and chairs
- Two bed-rooms with attached toilet and a living rooms for larger families
- Arrangment of barbeque at night
- Freshly prepared food with a homely touch
- Helpful and co-operative staff


Inconvinences:
- Not for people who do not have their own tranport
- Food is served in your room. No seperate restaurant/dining area (You can always dine in the lawn/sit-out)
- Not for foodies as they have a small menu
- Need to place your order 2-3 hours in advance
- If you run short of essentials, the nearest market is 5 kms away.

Recommendations:
- For valley view opt for the top room in the farthest corner of the hotel
- For garden facing rooms, opt for the room near the lawn. This room has a corridor, offering some privacy
- Barbeque at night
- Strawberry with cream at the nearby 'Strawberry Valley' joint.
- Carry your own snacks especially for those planning to stay with kids.

My stay at Honeywood for 3 days last week was absolutely mind blowing, the hotel is very well maintained the staff is very friendly and very prompt.
The location of the hotel is to die for, it gives you that peace / privacy & quiet that you long for away from our normal noisy city life.
The view from the hotel is just perfect, overlooking the valley's and mountains of mahableshwar, there is also a kid's park to keep the children entertained - the lawn is very inviting and we had a blast barbecuing there in such a perfect surrounding.
The staff was super prompt every-time we called them and had a smile and took care of us very well. Clean rooms / ample parking space & 24hrs elect & water - simply outstanding.
I will only stay here when i go to Mahableshwar and recommend this hotel to everyone - thanks again to the owners and the staff - made my stay simply fantastic :))

Room Tip: Try the barbecue in the evening in the lawn area - you will love the experience !!

Honeywood Homes is a lovely little property (THIS IS NOT A TRADITIONAL HOTEL) which positions itself as a "Bed And Breakfast" joint. It is located away from the market and all the hustle and bustle which typically accompany 'hill station holidays.' The location for us was a big plus. Absolutely quiet and a wonderful place to retreat in the midst of nature.

We were a couple with a kid aged 5 and also had our newest family member - our 5 month old little pup. We found the service to be very good and the food to be even better. The place is clean and is efficiently managed by the staff they employ.

The property has a small lawn and a basic children's play area which includes a couple of swings and a slide.

They are pet friendly (do check with the property owners). They are also couple, kids, family and senior citizen friendly.

Other important things you may need to know:

It is important for you to have your own transport or be prepared to cough up taxi fare. The staff will help arrange the same for you.

Carry your own 'chakna' + alcohol as the market is about 7 kms away. It will help if you stock up on kid friendly snacks as well before you check in to Honeywood Homes.

Ask for a bar-b-que and the staff will be more than happy to arrange one for you. We loved it and the weather was excellent in the first week of April when we were there.

Do carry you own toiletries. This place offers very clean toilets and towels along with a soap. There is no doubt about that. However, other stuff like shaving essentials, shampoos, lotions etc are only available in the market area and you will need to that trip for these items.

Net, net...We will be back here and highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: We lived in the 2 bedroom house and thought it was very good. There are 2 single rooms with a lawn a...
