I stayed here for three nights while attending a training workshop at the same venue. For workshops it is a good place as the meeting hall is quite conducive for participatory training. The food was also tasteful and fresh (though spicy for outsiders). The rooms are of good size, clean linen, but mini bar/ fridge not replenished - nor operational. The entire property is spread over 100 acres and offers multiple options from Rooms to Cottages. The biggest problem for me was corridor noises. Being on highway and one of the oldest resorts, it attracts families who wish to spend a night and many check-ins take place around mid-night. Finding sleep was a challenge.
The rooms were good and spacious. However the hotel location is not ideal, unless you have your own means of transport. Food options are limited within the premises, but there are better places a few hundred metres away. The gym on the premises is ancient and creaky but fun to use! Can be a noisy place in wedding season (usually winters) with lots of wedding parties and receptions.
Had lots of good talks in mind as told by colleagues and friends. However not up to the expectations. Cottages and rooms are spacious and old fashioned. Decor ordinary. Service very slow and lousy. Very limited menu to have in dinner or breakfast. Portions very large, of course sufficient enough for 3. Variety needs to be added. Lots of improvement possible.
It is located on Mehsana - Abu Road highway... we stayed here in Sep while driving back to Delhi. The surroundings were dark and nothing is available outside... one needs to have food inside if staying here... Good points: 1. Huge property... ample parking space... inside compound. 2. Big rooms...A/C, TV and geyser working. 3. Food is available, though its tasteless 4. Linens are clean 5. Staff is courteous Improvements: 1. Expensive, considering the facilities... not worth the price 2. WiFi was non-existent in rooms, though common areas, the signal was strong 3. No cell phone signal in rooms... Airtel was dead...and so was vodafone 4. Bathroom tap was leaking...
The Saffrony Holiday Resort in Mehsana has large spacious rooms. However the bathroom taps are leaking and they could do well to fix it. Staff are cooperative. Cost appears to be slighly on the higher side.
