Shivsagar Farmhouse, Mahabaleshwar
At-Post Bhilar, Â Main road Bhilar Village Tal-Mahabaleshwar, India
We visited Mahabaleswar on 02/04/16 and 03/04/16 and stayed at Shivsagar farm house. We are from Mangalore, Karnataka. We booked this place after researching in Tripadvisor. We stayed as a family of five members for two days in Non-AC rooms. Our purpose was to tour Mahabaleswar, Panchgani. Overall it was a very pleasant stay. Anyway I shall start with the cons (if at all) Cons: 1. Away from the bus-stop, difficult to locate the place. Pros: 1. Excellent service from the staff. 2. Tasty food- they use fresh vegetables grown in their farm 3. Very clean- linen, towels, toilet 4. Beautiful interiors with spacious room/ bathroom 6. In the midst of a farm with calm surroundings 7. Dinner and breakfast could be taken in the lawn in front of the hotel. It was 18 deg and very pleasant in April. A very memorable experience How the management got away with the cons: The authorized driver of the hotel, Ajith, arranged for our pick up from Pune bus-stand. He took us around Panchgani and Mahabaleswar in the Tata Indigo next 2 days. He planned the itinerary for us. The return journey to Pune station included stops at Wai Ganpathi temple, Mapro factory, Prati Tirupathi temple, Dagdusheth Ganpathi temple and Kelkar museum. All this was planned by Ajith. He doubles up as an excellent guide and made our trip memorable. In a nutshell, really liked this place and would like to stay again if we happen to visit Mahabaleswar. We recommend this place to families who want to tour Mahabaleswar, a place worth visiting.
My stay at this hotel was for adventurous trip with my family in January month. My travel destination was excellent since I like many point. The location would be very god as it is strawberry farm. Best way to reach the hotel is by road. I would rate the appearance excellent. They gave good service. The front office was excellent whereas the manager was cooperative and check in check out was done on time. The hotel was booked through goibibo website. The room and the facilities would be excellent as I like suit room and back view. The overall service provided at the hotel was excellent since they gave on time room service. The food was excellent as they provided traditional food and I like strawberry milkshake. Complimentary breakfast was given. They have strawberry farm and children play ground. Wi-Fi facility was available and was good. Sightseeing and cycling was available in the hotel. Travel desk facility was available in the hotel. I would expect swimming pool in the hotel. It is recommendable hotel and we had excellent stay and were satisfied. I like the strawberry farm very much.
An absolute consummate place for a couple wanting to spend some casual time this vacation. All I could say was "Wow", the moment I stepped in the hotel and the room. A perfect location far from the traffic and crowded markets of Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. The hotel is located amidst greenery and strawberry farms and is at the brink of the Panchgani valley. Serene beauty is the only thing that you see from the hotel balconies. Each room is tailor-made to suit a couples requirement of a perfect honeymoon destination. The hotel premises is well maintained with wifi services and cleanliness is maintained at all times. For an exemplary vacation, go for an Executive Room or even an Executive Suite and trust me you wouldn't regret a single penny spent. Free pickup and drop service from the Bus stand. Food is an amazing factor there as they grow their vegetables, hence you get fresh homemade food when you order. In short, my stay at Shivsagar Farmhouse was indeed a perfect one and it is confirmed I am staying at Shivsagar the next time I visit Panchgani.
I stayed there many times and mostly I stayed there only for one night. I had gone there with my husband for personal purpose in the month of November 2014. My overall experience there was pretty good. Location wise, the hotel was situated nearby the city. Inside facilities of the hotel was nice. Staff behaviour was helpful and professional and they gave on time services. Check-in and check-out facility was smoothly done. Appearance of the hotel was okay only. Rooms were quite spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained. Pillow, bed sheet, washroom and other furnishing were in clean condition. I had no issue about their room. Hot water facility was available there but it was only for limited time but on request they had given in the evening time also. All basic amenities were in working condition like TV, etc. My room was on the ground floor that’s why no view was visible but from 1st and 2nd floor nice view was visible. Staff of the hotel was cleaning the room regularly. Food facility was available there with veg and non-veg varieties but I took veg simple food there and it was up to the mark. Price wise, the food was bit costly. Swimming pool and other activities were not available there. I am not sure about travel desk facility. Money spend there was worth. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers. They should need to provide the hot water facility for 24 hrs. It was not a luxurious hotel. Mahabaleshwar as a destination place is excellent.
The hotel is located in the city hence I did not face any difficulties in finding it. The appearance of the hotel was good and services provided by them were good. The staff members were cooperative and truly professional. The room allotted to me was spacious with all the comforts. The hotel did not delay in check-in or check-out, it was done respectfully. The hotel is worth paid for the money.
