The house keeping staff were very nice , the other staff were just average. The food at the bar was awful. Basa fish tikka was half done. Paneer tikka was just average, even the green chutney was watery. Veg platter just had paneer, mushroom, and fried besan tikki as variety. The breakfast stuff was however good with good staff looking after you. Very high priced

Very expensive place compared to the services provided
Compared to the services provided, the hotel is very expensive, especially when you visit in peak season. Food is average, services (specially in restaurants) are below average. No one attends you properly. Even in the ala-carte restaurant, staff doesn't attend you and very reluctantly takes the order, like he's actually not interested. So overall a turn off.

Good value for money
Had an excellent stay. The hotel staff stood out for us. Though the quality of buffet breakfast could be better.

My feedback on trip to dukes retreat
Cost of food not included in the booking cost & the charges would set you back by approx Inr 1600 for 2 people for lunch/dinner in buffet format. A la cart is charged extremely high so that you opt for buffet format.

Its a Treat at Dukes Retreat!!!
Location, Clean Property & Polite Staff.
Visited this beautiful property on weekend for 2 days with family. Got my bookings done from and cracked a grt deal!!! Wht should I say abt this iconic place, its just the way one expects it to be--PERFECT. PROS:- We were staying in room no. 323 & 324 which had expressway view. Rooms were quite spacious with clean bathrooms which I appreciate a lot as I am very fuzzy abt it. There was Ghazal Night on Sat and Sun which actually made our trip more memorable and a special mention for that Maestro singer. The best part was the Deck area where one can relax and rewind themselves.....the view is breathtaking. All the staff were extremely polite be it in restaurant, cafe especially house-keeping who made sure that we had a good comfortable stay. I was really happy with their gesture of keeping chocolates on every bed once the room was clean, I was quite surprised of this sweet note:):):):):) CON:- Now comes the most important part----- FOOD They have a very limited menu if you choose A La Carte especially for vegetarians like me!!! We had buffet breakfast which was nice with many options to choose from. Since we are poor eaters we didn't take buffet lunch and dinner which was Rs 990 plus taxes pp. It would be nice if the management elaborates the menu for a la carte but I think they want everyone to opt for buffet and so not interested much in anything else. Lastly, I had a good quality time in tranquility so guys keep the good work going on........

Good place to stay
Deck view, location and courteous staff
Our stay was a pleasant one. The location was great with brilliant views of the valley. Will recommend for those who want to visit Khandala. The only suggestion to the resort is to serve tea / coffee in flasks (given the cold climate).
