Good Family vacation

5.0/7

This is well maintained large club mahindra property. It is on main Kalka Shimla highway, 30 Kms before Shimla. So away from Shimla's traffic and nestle. Check-in was very smooth. We were given best 1BR room of property an from room balcony we could see beautiful sunset. There are lot and lot of activities like zipline, sobbing. Fun zone was very much active and there are lots of activities and family games every day. Overall a very good experience.

Superb resort with beauty all around it

6.5/7

Amazing experience at club mahindra kandaghat, if you plan to come to Shimla anytime in the future, then this is the hotel for you. 20 kms from the main city, it has an amazing view of mountains all around it. There is much to do inside the resort itself which is the largest individual property in the whole of Simla. There is paintball, an excellent Fun Zone with PlayStations, Air hockey, pool table, bouncing castle etc, also many adventure activities like trekking, zipline and rappelling are available for reasonable rates if you take the full day pass. Cons:. In my opinion is the food which is very expensive and not worth it. Facilities are limited, and there is no swimming pool, massage centre, and gym. Other than that, the room, activities and staff are all brilliant. 5 stars

Good room service and friendly staff

5.4/7

I visited this hotel in the month of February for a Holiday trip with family. The city was excellent I liked the place and hotel location was very good it was the outside of the city. The appearance of the hotel was very good I liked the nature of the hotel appearance. The reception was good, they were very friendly. Service was good; staff behaviour was very nice and helpful. The food was average, it was an overrated. The complimentary breakfast was given. I liked the WiFi facility with free access. The room was nice it had a garden space. The overall experience was good.

Memorable experience

6.0/7

I visited Club Mahindra Kandaghat from 05 to 07 August 2016, along with my three friends. When we reached the resort, we were impressed by the maintenance of the lawns. Club Mahindra Kandaghat is perhaps one of the biggest resort of Club Mahindra spread over 15 acres of land, surrounded by mountains and lot of greenery. The resort is situated on the Kalka-Shimla Highway and is around 4 km from Kandaghat Railway Station. Even though it has 72 rooms, the CM Kandaghat should be one of the busiest resorts Club Mahindra has. We had difficulty in booking the rooms they were filling very fast. Therefore, we could not get a longer stay than 02 nights. We had taken the morning Kalka Shatabdi from New Delhi up to Kalka (which reaches Kalka at 11:45 am), from there the Himalayan Queen, the connecting train, which had only non-AC seats, which leaves at 12:10 noon. From Platform No. 3, where we got down from Shatabdi Express to Platform No. 5, where Himalayan Queen train was waiting, had just a short walk of 5 minutes (or may be less). Out of five, four bogies were reserved bogies (38 seats in each bogie) and one unreserved bogie. The train took almost four hours to reach Kandaghat, as it was running slightly late. After the first hour, the journey became tiresome. From Kandaghat Railway Station to CM Kandaghat, which was around 4 km. We took a taxi and paid Rs. 200 (and the same amount was charged by CM Kandaghat Travel Desk for our return journey to Kandaghat Railway Station). We were welcomed by a coloured drink made of some flower (do not remember the name of the flower) but it tasted good and had the fragrance of rose. The check-in was smooth and it took hardly a couple of minutes to complete the process (thanks to the beautifully dressed golden girl at the Reception). On our request we were given accommodation in the main building as three of us were senior citizens and the building had lifts. The 1BR room (No. 1009) on Minus-2 floor was a huge room (50 x 15 ft. Approx. ), But did not have any balcony unlike we had in CM Binsar Villa. There was a window which gave a brief view of the mountains. The room was clean but we missed the Towel Art in the rooms (in CM Mussoorie and CM Gir, the CM staff had kept the towels on our beds in the shape of flowers or some bird). The bathroom had the facility of Bath tub (which we had not seen in CM Gir, CM Mussoorie and CM Binsar Villa) in addition to shower. There were two restaurants, one, an a la carte restaurant Blossom and two, a restaurant providing buffet meal. However, we had opted for Room Service. Surprisingly we found the service to be a little slow compared to other CM Resorts we had visited. But the service staff was very cordial and helpful. We had also resorted to a restaurant near the entry gate of CM Kandaghat, but we were a disappointed. The fun zone had lots of activities especially for kids. Table tennis, chess, carom, etc. And a lot of art activities for kids like painting. CM Kandaghat had a variety of other activities for guests like Tambola, singing and dancing, DJ, Movies, and so on. There was a fountain with an open air bar which was not working when we had gone there. The lush green manicured lawns and the fountains added to the beauty of the CM Kandaghat. The lighting arrangements of the lawns and the buildings also added to its beauty. If CM Kandaghat provides a gym, it will be an added attraction. Since we did not have much time, we had gone to Mohan Shakti National Heritage Park, situated at a distance of 16 kms off Kandaghat-Solan road. The taxi took us Rs. 800/-. Though the Park had started only recently and only the temple is open for public, the visit was worth. The Park proposes to expand in the years to come, with a Yoga Centre in the caves across the hill and a university too with ropeway access. If you have time, you can also visit Chail (29 and/ or Shimla (30 for sightseeing. Overall, it was a memorable experience with weather supporting us. Would like to visit again, this time with family.
