as soon as I reached there I inquired about food availability (since from internet I got information that late evening I will not get any food there), people there in the guest house told me that I shall take my dinner before 7 pm since the food counter closes at 7pm. so I rushed to get food and had it !! due to the fear that I will not get food if I decide to stay there at night. However when I finished and started towards Jahaj Mandir (temple on a ship) I saw that there is a hotel providing food at late evening too ! as well as stalls for fast food like bhel,pani-puri etc. so even though u r late there u can get food, if not in the 4~5 km range big hotels are seen on road to kolhapur.
anyway .. we though of staying there at night as an experience, and booked one room, but when we came back from visit to the Jahaj Mandir, we found that we were alone in the complete complex, it sound so wearied that we decided to head down to Kolhapur ! although there was security !! but u know how can we stay in such quite place alone ! so we left to kolhapur. if u r group of people u can stay there.

Since it was late night we could not goto the main temple to see Shri Bahubali, since you need to climb 450 steps to visit this place and that is possible only in day light, so next time I would definitely visit this place.
