“I enjoyed my stay at JP Cottage, Mahabaleswar. The room was clean. The room service was good. JP cottage has its own garden. A kettle was provided in the room. The bathroom was clean and quite spacious. The breakfast was complimentary and was good. If you are looking for privacy then book a deluxe r“ oom instead of a standard room. The standard rooms are located on the ground floor and are adjacent to the parking area. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at JP cottage.
