Near to nature; good service and cosy cottages


It was a very nice place to visit. Location of the place was really very good and is very near to nature. View from the rooms are very scenic. Wooden cottages are cosy and good. Service of the resort is good. People can go down to mountain who loves adventure. Food is good.

Nice resort with good services and room


I had booked this resort online and I tracked it through GPS so, there was no problem in travelling. The appearance of the resort was good and interiors were nice. The staff members were helpful and friendly in nature. There was no delay in check-in or check-out procedure. The room allotted to us was spacious and maintained with amenities like TV, AC and geyser working properly, and there was a sunset view. The food provided in the resort was very good in quality and taste. There are no activities or games as such conducted by the management. Overall, the resort is very good and money spent was surely worth it.

Very hospitable owners but dissappointing stay


It is located mid way between Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar after the turning from the main road, the road is narrow and not concreted for the most part. Thus, reaching the hotel especially in a big family car was troublesome. Need a good driver to negotiate the muddy curvy road leading to the property. Parking was definitely an issue. There was space for only 2 cars, turning each car to go up and out was an ordeal We were allocated 3 cottages. The architectural and interior design per say was very good, with wooden flooring and ceiling and a wooden balcony offering an amazing view. However, the flooring was cracked in places, beds were creaky, rooms were dusty, linen and towels was not fresh. The bathroom had glass doors and a glass divider. Good for honeymoon couples. This glass door had an OLD STAINED shower curtain for privacy !! The commode creaked There was french windows and a door leading to the balcony. Would have been wonderful if there had been clean curtains to draw at night. But this was covered with dirty dusty plastic SHOWER CURTAINS The saving grace was the warm hospitality and good fresh delicious food cooked by the owners. They also order food from not so near by hotels for you but that is time consuming. Best to ask the owners to cook for you There was a small rather un-kept garden area with a swing and slide for the very young. The same staff multi task- housekeeping, carrying your bags, serving. Service was slow but with a smile It would be good if the owners invested in refurbishing the property and got fresh clean linen and extra staff.

Spacious rooms and fabulous service


I was here in the last summer. Mahabaleshwar, which is located in the ranges of Sahyadris is just an awesome place to visit. During our visit we were in this hotel for 3 days. I don't think we had any problem with anything there. Rooms were well-maintained, spacious and clean. Service provided was also fabulous. Staff was very polite and gentle. I would prefer going here only if in future I ever visit Mahabaleshwar again. Would recommend other travellers also to have a visit here.

Good hotel in good location


Hotel was located on main road, mainly for the travellers. Me and my friends visit this resort for a night. Next morning the hotel management prepared a small travel in forest and give me some food and other travelling guides. I best recommend this resort to the people who love wildlife. Rooms were good and service was also good. Food offered by them best suited the forest area and we all like the food. Then all of us leave the resort and the manager gives us a small farewell gift.

Food was brilliant; staff was polite


What a brilliant weekend stay we had here. My family totally enjoyed it. We had stayed there for 3 nights. Awesome property, big sized rooms, cleanliness was maintained. Interior was excellent. Staff was polite and ever ready to attend guests. Food was brilliant. Overall nice stay. Slightly overpriced but then trust me every penny spent is worth here. Highly recommended!

Excellent view; good food


I had visited this resort few month back. Reaching there was bit difficult since there was no tar road up to the hotel. But once you will reach there you will feel very delightful. View of the valley from hotel room was excellent. Food and breakfast was very good like our home-made food. We also had bonfire at night which was very soothing experience.

Cottages made out of wood with all new facilities


I have visited Panchgani in the month of March 2014 along with family. The Forest Valley Resort was ideal for our stay. Our stay was for four days. The cottages were constructed with wood and were very decent with all modern facilities with beautiful view of strawberry farms. The staff was very cooperative and housekeeping services were good. The food was very tasty and reasonable. It was most amazing trip of my life.

Cottage provided with delicious food


Location of the hotel is excellent. Cottage is located at nice place. Staff is quite courteous. Hotel is equipped with eight cottages. The taste of the food is same as you enjoy in the home. There are lots of indoor activities available for children with a nice play area. You can enjoy mother nature even from your bed. But no swimming pool facility is provided.
