The resort is located far away from the crowded and bustling market place nested in the peace and quiet of the green forest. Has scenic views of the surrounding panorama. The staff is prompt and courteous and very helpful as they quickly unloaded all our luggage and guided us to a clean and well equipped room. Since my wife was feeling cold, the caretaker immediately gave us additional blankets. They provided us with drinking water regularly and promptly. And not to forget, it was mid December 2013 and my wife was feeling sick due to cold at night so I requested the staff to light a camp fire with wood, else the condition could have become serious. The staff did it for us without charging anything for the same. All to their courtesy. Also she needed some medicine for which the staff went to the main market at night and brought the same for us. The hotel food is good and very homely which I and my wife liked very much. I would certainly recommend one more stay at Hotel Gourish!

Just back from a long stay at Gourish Mahabaleshwar. A relaxed holiday in the lap of nature. The resort is nested in dense forests, home to deer, wild boars and the ever elusive cheetah. The rooms are reasonably good, offering a panoramic view of the forest and the table-land beyond. Running hot water available, the house keeping staff were very prompt in their services and always there at your beck and call. One with a keen ear can hear the cries of different birds and the lucky can even spot these winged guests on the numerous Jamun trees loaded with blackberries (of course at this time of the year). Occasionally you may find a black-faced langur peering and frowning at through the thick foliage of the trees.. Though the restaurant claims to offer multi cuisine variety, it is unfortunately far from it. Of course , the restaurant manager Deepak Bhaiya goes out of the way to pamper you and the demands of your palate. Inspite of the earnest efforts of Deepak Bhaiya and his team, be prepared to dig into sweet Upma/ Dosa/ veggies/ even chicken.

Now to the not-so-good part: Since Gourish is 7 kms away from the main town, i.e. the market place, you are totally cut off from the outside world once you are inside. Hence it is advisable to have your own vehicle with or else you will really feel the pinch on pocket every time you think of venturing out.

Those who are planning a holiday with children, do carry a stock of grub enough to last you through your stay. If you don't mind these little inconveniences, then go ahead and plan next getaway here. You will not regret it, I promise.

There are not such good amenities in this hotel, but it has good location in jungle and quite beautiful surrounding a can watch sunrise from hotel itself also the food provided by them and the snacks is very tasty and not too costly as served in hotels or in the market. The rooms provided by them were also good it contains refrigerator, TV, phone, attached toilet with bath tub and good service. Even the manager and country club person gives good advice about the sight seeing and other thing to do there and what to watch, purchase and etc. It was a great experience visiting there with my family, my wife and two kids. We had enjoyed a lot as we stayed for four days. There is a children play park and every one there are supportive.

Hotel location is average. Appearance is okay. It has old type building. I stayed there for three nights and four days. I did try only veg food at the hotel. Natural beauty was very nice there. I went there with my family. I booked only one room there. Food was very nice. I very much liked lunch and dinner at the hotel. Rooms were good. TV, geyser, and other basic facilities were available. Hotel staff was excellent. No outdoor activities were available. I booked my room there through by travel agent. Mahabaleshwar is a good place for tourism.

The location is very calm and cool. The ambiance is also good. You get very nice food here. The rooms are clean and neat. The service is very good. Activities are also good. You can enjoy trekking from here into the jungle. The hotel is very cost effective and must be visited.

Hotel Gourish is much before the main gateway - checkpoint to the town, infact it is on the way to the old mahabaleshwar town and it is easy to get lost as the road leading up to the hotel is forested, quaint and shady with almost no traffic at all on either side. As there are no signboards, you need to rely on locals to guide you up to the hotel.

The hotel does not boast of any amenities like a pool or games etc, so be sure to cary your own stuff to kick up some fun. The amenities in the room were good..LCD TV, hot water, clean matresses, quick service.

If you are looking to have fun, this certainly is not a place for you. however if you are looking for some peace and relaxation, this is the palce to be. The food quality is good and largely local food. Veg as well as N. veg food is available and generally made on order, so expect some waiting time.

Finding public transport in and around the hotel is dificult so ensure that you have your own car or have a pre-arranged transport.

On a overall basis a good place if you are looking to chill and relax.

The property is decent, clean and spacious rooms, location is peaceful. However, the service is very poor and the hotel does not have many facilities for indoor and outdoor games.
The food is good and homely. The rooms are well laid out. It is right next to Anand Van Bhuvan.
