Reviewed 26 April 2011

Looking at pictures of Hotel Frederick, Mahableshwar, one can't imagine the poor condition the hotel actually is in! No wonder they don't have full blown pictures of the rooms on their website. The staff is cordial but meals are average. The location is superb but the stay is definitely not worth remembering. The rooms need renovation and maintainence (big time).

Hotel Frederick is located just before the Mahabaleshwar town. It has 30 odd rooms, all on the ground floor. It is one of the heritage hotels in Mahabaleshwar. It is full of old world charm and overlooks the Venna lake. I have been a frequent visitor to Mahableshwar for the past 20 years, and rarely stay anywhere else. It is one of the few hotels which welcomes dogs, and that too without any extra charge. The hotel is expensive especially when compared to some of the other offerings in the area. Unfortunately, over the years the rooms have slowly dereiriorated, and the quality of food is no longer the same as it was a few years ago. The excellent four course meal used to be a prime attraction, and I could gorge myself silly for each of the meals. I'm sorry to say that recently there has been a definite drop in food quality. The rooms too have not been maintained, nor is the linen clean. Most of the staff have been there for decades, and are like old friends. They are always quite attentive, and often go out of their way to help. If you are looking for something more contemporary, go somewhere else. If you want a place full of Old World charm, albeit a little worn out, this is the place for you.

Reviewed 7 November 2010

November 2006

This is a typical house from the British era, built in 1924 and run by a christian lady. We have not seen bigger rooms or washrooms in a house. The cottage / hotel is a typical English house with anitque teak woodwork, furniture, fireplaces and artefacts. It takes the guests back to that era. In fact, when we visited, the only cuisine available in the restaurant was continental / English - the recipes dating back to the pre-independence British raj period. This was not exactly a palatale taste for us - though still an experience. On site magicians, hadicrafts sales and other salesmen of local produced products were enchanting and gave the feel of an era bygone. And, here we must mention the breathtaking mountain views, play area for kids and huge landscaped lawns as well. Except for the food, everything about this hotel was fantastic. Great value for money as well.
