I was in this hotel for 2 days for my corporate meeting. The hotel was booked by my company under group booking. It was a twin hotel where two hotels attached to each other. A place was balewadi around 20 km from Pune station. The hotel was very close to chatrapati shivaji sports complex and opposite to national insurance academy. A good ambience and spacious surroundings gives a good first impression. A well mannered reception team was another plus point The rooms were spacious, well furnished and very well maintained with a quality TV. A good bathroom and very soft and pleasant mattresses makes stay more comfortable. The food was good and has a wide variety. Especially breakfast was great. Lunch and dinner consists of tasty and delicious dishes and sweet dish was fabulous. Service staff too was co-operative except for one officer who was slightly rude. Overall my stay was comfortable. It is worth staying in this nice hotel .
Big property with wide open spaces around, has a kind of forlorn look once you enter the lobby. Breakfast in the morning had a nice spread of Marathi, Punjabi and South Indian cuisine. I like their hospitality and always ready to serve The rooms are clean and spacious. Rooms are very comfortable with beautiful interiors. I love the swimming pool area the most. The management is very friendly and cooperative. For a Mumbaikar, looking for a quick weekend outing, this place is perfect as it is on the outskirts of Pune and just on ending of Expressway The best way to travel from Mumbai is Bus or Train It's most reasonably priced hotel in the area. Staff is very friendly & courteous, quick response for every request. Very close to Hinjewadi IT Park. Overall experience is very good.
The location of the hotel was convenient. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was no delay in check-in and check-out procedure. The appearance of the hotel was marvellous. The room was spacious and well maintained. The basic amenities were working well. I could see the pool view from the room. The housekeeping service was excellent. They provided a hot and cold water facility all the time and washroom was hygienic. I had complimentary breakfast in the hotel. They quality and taste of the food was awesome and it was reasonable. They provided many varieties in the food. Gym and swimming pool were there in the hotel. Sightseeing was not arranged by the hotel. The hotel was valued for the money. It was a personal trip with family. It was recommendable hotel.
I will share this review based on my personal experience. Well I already have seen lot of good reviews about the Hotel but I would write it based on the day and time I was there and the incidents I noticed. You may surely feel it is judge mental but I would say that it was hotel's bad luck that I noticed their loopholes of the so called 5 star property Location is on Balewadi highway. Grand Look from far. Front desk too was quite professional however little mismanaged. When tried check-in they asked me from where did I booked the rooms and was it this property or some other orchid property. Then other executive found out my booking details and proceeded further. They have in-house Ayurveda massage service on which they were offering 80% discount. Bed was comfortable. Wash-room was good and clean. It had Bath tub but too small to even have a relaxing time in it. All the lights in the room can be controlled by a smart remote control sort of instrument which was a great fun as well as facility. Rooms provide dental kits, comb, shampoo, soaps, conditioners and moisturisers Negatives-. 1. They ask for your credit card/ debit card number (In case you run away after using their services). Who gives their card details these days? What if Hotel staff runs away with my card details. But it is one way trust which you have to show if you want to stay in hotel 2. Post check-in the front desk will point the finger towards lift and will ask to go on your own. (No porter or helper was assigned). Its when someone saw me struggling with my bags, a helper came running towards me 3. Electricity disruption. In my stay for 2 nights, hotel faced power disruption issues for about 30-40 times. (It may be more as I lost count after many of them). Hotel do have generator backup but it takes 30 seconds to activate it, which means one has to literally sit in dark at night for 30 seconds. Note- for all 40+ times electricity went off, TV & Digital Set Top Box use to get reset and I had to all over again search channels which I was viewing 4. Good service but extremely slow. You may get the feeling that you yourself would have done it, it would have be 2 times faster. Call of house keeping and house keeping will come after 15 minutes to reply you that he or she was busy with other rooms 5. Dhanvantri- A group of about 300 people were staying the hotel for their conference which was again arranged within the hotel. These 300+ people had just raided the hotel and every corner of it. They were in lobby, in lifts, in gardens and everywhere. This was the most disturbing part of my stay. They all were noisy people. They were in groups and use to block the passages to lift as they would feel its their right to be first in the queue. These people had literally raided every service offered by hotel Advice to travellers- If you plan to roam the city, do have a cab booked as it is extremely difficult to find a auto even though it is on the highway. Check with hotel if there is any group booking like I mentioned about Dhanvantri. If so, I would suggest you to change your plans as they would really make you have a 2 star experience. Hotel doesn't have adequate facilities to manage them all. Just 2 working lifts which had to be used by 300 guests at a time can be a challenge. I was made to use service lift just to go on 2nd floor as they do not even have fire exit staircases working (This is what I was informed by lady at reception). I am not coming back here as I would definitely find a better hotel at same cost somewhere else. Sorry Orchid but you definitely didn't give me 5 star experience. Even if I neglect Dhanvantri issue, you guys still have power disruption issues and unless that is not solved, I wont not even recommend this place to any one.
The Hotel was cool, The service and staff was too good. The service provided by the chefs were very good. The location was though approachable, but its away from the city. The landmark was very feasible to locate. There was believed stadium near the hotel. The Hotel is known in the Pune location. The appearance of the hotel was good both inside and outside, The interior decor was not that great but good and attractive. The staff were very friendly and courteous in assisting to our request. The female staff who were looking after the packages was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and neat and quiet calm. The amenities like AC, TV, air conditioner and geyser was functioning well. There were some properties seen through the room. The toilets were neat and clean. The food was served as per the client request the restaurant had both service and buffet. There was no delay in check in and check out. The hotel had a pool, but it was no that hygiene, there was both indoor and outdoor games.
