Overall a great experience, with very helpful staff. The deluxe rooms are huge and great to stay in while the standard rooms are comfortable. We drove down to Shirdi, the hotel had ample free parking as well as someone to wash the car for a nominal charge of Rs.100. The travel desk was also helpful. Only two issues (i) the water in the pool was murky and (ii) the standard rooms did not have a tea/coffee maker. Due to the rush there was a slight delay in making rooms available to us but that was compensated by way of a late check out the following day. Overall for the price, it was a great place with a 24 hour shuttle service to the temple.
Right from the point of check in through check out the experience was very pleasant.
1. The property is quite new and well designed. The spacious rooms feature panoramic windows. The widows in our rooms looked out to the east absorbing views of sunrise over rural farms and natural wilderness.
2. The building is fitted with WiFi (complimentary for our stay even though it was not included in our Expedia package), sprinklers and fire safe exits.
3. Two swimming pools and a play area with swings and slides offer opportunities for kids to have fun.
4. Although the hotel is 1.7 km from the Shirdi temple, they offer a 24x7 complimentary shuttle service which was very convenient.
1. The bathroom is designed to take in natural sunlight to minimize electric consumption - at the guests' discretion
2. They conserve water by reusing/recycling as well as rain water catchment
The buffet breakfast offers a lot of variety including Western, South Indian and North Indian options and a wide selection of beverages. The quality of the South Indian food was beyond what I had expected in Shirdi - simply awesome! It was topped only by the exceptional service from the staff. The cafe is a great place for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner (call in advance to know if the buffet is offered at other times of the day).
I would highly recommend this hotel when visiting Shirdi.
Marigold is just not hotel but was an extremely satisfied experience.This hotel in Centrally located with best and clean rooms with all 5 star Annuities.The staff was friendly and very pro-active especially the manager Santosh.The car facility was also provided for temple and was very reliable.The restaurant got all the best collection of food and the best part in that there is no burden of taxation and Vat.Very Much affordable.I will strongly recommend this hotel to Family because of safety and peace.I am very sure people will find it better than 5 stars.
Hotel Staff - Excellent, perfect guidance for temple darshan
Food - Breakfast excellent, Lunch / Dinner - little greasy and spicy
Distance from Sai Baba temple.. less than a quater mile.. very convinient.
Over all - Very Good
We stayed in the first week of march and a wonderful stay I must say.. Polite staff, good food and nice calm ambience. Being a punjabi, I felt one little thing, there should be other varieties of food in breakfast rather than south indian food..
Must recommend to people planning to stay in shirdi.
P.S. they provide round the clock cab for darshan
