Average location

Location place is average but the place Dandeli is superb for friends trip, it is adventures. The food and service are good but the rooms are not so maintained correctly, the hotel is good for couples. The road to hotel is not so good, going with own vehicle is better

Awesome experience with the camping

5.5/7

The location is good with rich nature and the ambience. Service is equally good and will provide friendly suggestions on site seeing. They will take us to trek. The trek is okay but the beauty after the trek is awesome. I never imagined the food will be so Yummy. I love the stay with Magazine house.

Awesome Experience

6.4/7

Old Magazine House is an awesome place to visit. If you want to be with nature, have a restful time and get disconnected with all hustle-bustle, this is the place you should go OMH is perfect in every way - They have the best service, helpful staff, natural ambience, neatness and most of all Yummy food in the midst of forest Now talking about our stay, we wanted to do river rafting and hence planned to visit Dandeli and selected OMH after Reading about it. They have 2 options for stay - Dormitory and Cottages. We were a huge group of friends and hence Dormitory that has capacity of 16+ adults was a perfect fit. We rented a car to reach to Ganeshgudi - OMH and were welcomed very well and we were amazed with cleanliness of rooms and washrooms. It is very safe for girls/ladies if you are concerned about the safety. Unluckily water rafting never happened during our stay and there are very little options to do apart from relaxing. They have a famous spot for nature lovers and bird photographers, where a lot of exotic birds stop by and give us a pleasant view. Must go Don't forget your

Heavenly places with great staff

7.0/7

We were at Old Magazine House Forest Camp for 2 days. Main motto was birding and bird photography. It is truly a great place. Wonderful Hospitality. They have Cottage and Dormitory. All meals are included in your room rent. Rooms are simple but clean and tidy. The staff is very polite and helpful This place is paradise for bird watching. We enjoyed birding for 2 days. I could manage to click around 50+ species of the birds excluding the common birds. The resort naturalist guided us in spotting the birds all the time and gave useful information about the birds. For evening time, they took us at water pumping station where we spot more than 40+ hornbill birds Old Magazine House Forest Camp serves tasty food. It includes veg and non veg meal. Best part is when you are busy with bird photography within resort area, they constantly serve tea and coffee to refresh your mind. Evening camp fire is the best place to meet up with other tourist and exchange knowledge on birds and photography skills I simply loved this place ad will visit again for sure.

Awesome place to be one with Nature

6.1/7

It is a quiet gateway - a perfect place for those who want to be one with nature. The resort is perfectly blended with the surroundings. There is minimal to no connectivity which is really the best thing one could ask for. No televisions to distract one from the peace that surrounds the place The staff is courteous and always ready to help and accommodate your requests. This is not a place for those who seek luxury. The rooms are clean and maintained. Hot water is available during certain hours of the day given that water is heated using olden day methods Food is awesome - be it breakfast, lunch or dinner food is well done. The spread maybe limited, but tasty and wholesome. There is enough variety for children to choose from and healthy as well. Snacks and soups are healthy and in plenty. Overall this is a good place, if one wants to blend in with nature.

Overall a good resort with awesome activities

5.0/7

The resort is one of a kind. But that comes with a price. They conduct a bunch of activities For example, the boat ride, trekking, and the bird watching. The lunch and dinner buffet are good. The rooms are typical forest type. I personally didn't like the layout of the rooms. And if you are 4 in a group. Then, you need to adjust a lot. As the rooms are very small. Overall a good experience. Planning to visit again.

Well-behaved staff; good food and amenities

6.1/7

The behaviour of the staff was very good. I had no delay check-in and check-out. It was located near bus stand or near to road. Inside and outside of the hotel was good. The room was very neat and clean with view of forest and watching the birds from my room. All amenities like AC, TV and geyser were working properly. The quality of food was very good. All types of foods were provided by them. They arranged forest trip for us. They provide you to all facility. The appearances of hotel were good. They should provide transport facility. Sometimes they never provided transport facility. The hotel was reasonable and I will do recommended others to stay.

Could have been a great place to unwind

4.0/7

We were the only guests in the property. We booked 2 rooms and I assume that they would be the best rooms allowed to us (I haven't seen the other rooms). There is good amount of maintenance required to be done and since we were there at the beginning of the season, they told me that there was lack of interest in the management to maintain the property. Our room didn't have a mirror above the washbasin in the bathroom and the shower head was missing and was replaced by a dummy which was leaking throughout our stay. The commode seat cover was missing a nut that holds the seat in place and was shaky even after it was reported. The best part of the stay was the food which was quite good and we could pretty much get whatever we wanted in the local fanfare. The trek to the top of the mountain where you can have great views of the kali river was amazing. The trek itself is a good exercise and is not for those people who are not fit enough. You need a lot of patience to sit in one place quietly to do bird watching and photography. Carry a big zoom lens at least 400mm. The bigger the lens the better to get a close-up shot of the bird.

Location was inconvenient but stay was good

5.1/7

The location of the hotel was not convenient and it was far from the hotel. The service at the hotel was very good. The room I got was spacious and maintained also. There was forest view can see from the room. The food was also good and has nice quality vegetarian items. There were no delay happened in check-in and check-out process. They provided sightseeing facility and we enjoyed it well. I think the hotel valued my money and would like to recommend to other travellers.
