Hotel's Favourite
4.0 of 5 bubbles
This is a typical Sterling facility with good clean rooms and decent food. This property is just opened ( 7 months as of Jan 2024) . It has been taken over from an older hotel/stay. So the rooms are dated and with old fittings furnishings. All 24 rooms are same ( as per hotel staff) and most of them have balcony and view of the valley. The view is somewhat blocked for 1st floor rooms due to a hideous non-maintained property opposite the hotel. **** IMPORTANT NOTICE: Hotel doesn't have elevator/ lift and no rooms on ground floor******* So disabled/ old /limited mobility guests have a tough time.
It's in panchgani and far from Mahableshwar and little far from Panchgani market. This is both good and bad depending on whether you want peace or accessibility. You WILL need a car to get around. The silver lining is the hotel staff who are very friendly, accomodating and helpful. The front desk, the watchman, the housekeeping all are good. Special mention to the restaurant staff. They served good breakfast and were genuinely keeping up the service. They made sure we got warm food and even packed small stuff for the kids e.g. couple of idlis etc. Would like to mention Mr.Jagmohan and Mr.Anshu who took special care of us and our kids food needs and even went to prepare special meals( Paratha without onion) to make us feel special.
All in all good stay. But property needs a big upgrade/makeover.

Iwe visited with family and the staff were very accommodating in sanitising the room in front of us. There’s no lift so be prepared to climb a few flights. We took a super deluxe mountain view room. It had a decent view from the balcony but the room is slightly overpriced compared to other hotels in this category. Food is decent...and priced fairly. Pillows are very thick and beds are spring mattresses. Not good for people with back or neck issues. Hotel staff are courteous and responsive. Overall a decent stay.

The hotel is situated close to the main Bazar. Hence, travelling to the hotel seems to be easy.

Ideally, we had reserved a standard mountain view room but due to dissatisfactory cleanliness, we asked for a room change. We were offered another standard room or an upgrade to a suite room at extra cost. Considering the cleaning we choose to pay more and switch to a suite room.

Being a suite room with the extra charge we expected some additional amenities but the charge was only for a small living room and a sofa cum bed.

Being from a hotel background I expected at least a dental kit, room slippers, working minibar, etc. But to my surprise that was not the case. The only best part about the stay was the view rest the hotel is average. Cleanliness could be better.

Might recommend it if asked.

We visited this property in the first week of November. Stayed for 4 nights. Room selected was Mountain view AC super deluxe room. We stayed in room no. 202. The room had a balcony, sitting in which you can enjoy your tea with an awesome view of the valley. On the left hand side you can see the lake too. Rooms were very clean. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Food was good too.
The hotel is located on a hill. So there isn't any restaurant or shops within 3-4 kms.
The booking is done by the Gujrat office. The customer service lady told me on call that there is a lift in the hotel. But there isn't any. Our room was on the second floor. Did not make any difference to us as the hotel staff carries your luggage to your room. But in case there are senior citizens with you, think accordingly. To get a good view, select a room on the 2nd floor.
Few suggestions to hotel management - 1) Pls ask all the staff to wear a mask.
2) Pls fix a net on the bathroom windows as many insects enter the bathroom post evening.

Overall a very good experience. Would definitely recommend others to stay in this hotel.

Pros:
1. Hotel location is good
2. Rooms are spacious, well maintained

Cons:
1. Cuisine is very limited. Not at all recommended for a buffet. Food taste is average.
2. Very basic items were missing from the washroom like soap, handwash (there was some liquid mixed in tons of water), hand towels etc. We had to specifically ask for these items.

Sterling Holidays is a Professional Timeshare company.
It has many beautiful properties art different locations all over India.
Particularly this property is Not up to the mark of Sterling Holidays. This property needs renovation.
I visited here during peak Diwali season when it is completely Sold out and is running at 100% occupancy levels. May be due to that cleanliness was also not up to the mark.
Staff of Sterling is always very nice, polite and extremely helpful.
The Front Office Manager Mr. Sanjay Chouhan called me 1 day prior to my visit to confirm my stay and to know the time of my arrival.
Though the Check in is late around 2:00 PM I requested early check in and was luckily arranged by Mr. Sanjay.
The manager Mr. Rajib Das and Mr. Sanjay made sure and took extra care for our stay to be nice and comfortable. Kudos to them.
All Sterling properties which I have visited till now have restaurants with well appointed professional Chefs.
This property is no different.
The food was delicious.
The F&B manager Mr. ANSHU was extremely attentive and helpful and suggested best options for us.
I love Sterling Holidays but Sterling is Sterling because of its Managers and Staff who go extra mile for the Satisfaction of their Guests.
A loud shout out for all of them.

We visited the place in the first week of September 2021. This is the perfect time to visit Panchgani, thanks to its beautiful weather. Hotel Valley Nest is just a great place to enjoy your vacation. The gardrn/valley view room provides a beautiful view of the valley. The room is quite big, hygienic and has a sit out area which we loved a lot. 2 people can easily sit and have lunch or dinner enjoying the beauty of nature. The staff is very caring and humble. The food quality is great with variety of options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian people. You can enjoy the leisure time playing carrom, table tennis, fooseball or snooker. The area around the hotel is amazing and you can definitely enjoy selfies with your friends. There is also children play area for small kids. There is this amazing and well maintained garden and lawn in the front which enhances the beauty of this place. I suggest everyone in all age groups to visit Hotel Valley Nest and can assure you will definitely enjoy your stay!
