"Value for money"

6.0/7
Posted 7 months ago

Matheran is an amazing place for a short trip. In Gujarat bhavan, the rooms were neat and clean. The food was nice and felt good staying there. The behaviour of staff was good. Value for money hotel. The size of the rooms were big enough. Will definitely stay there in my next trip to matheran. Nice pool also.

Good place if you are going to relaxation for a couple of days. Rooms are good but needs more lights, location at the corner of Matheran. If you talk about food not much impressive for a foodies like me but as compare to other places of Maharashtra you can say it provides good Gujarati food. I had visited with my wife and son. We had a blasting vac....

The hotel is best among others in Matheran. The rooms are excellent and are spacious, also the hotel is very famous. Staff is very kind. Food provided is pure authentic Gujrati food which is mind blowing. Services like swimming pool, play area etc are provided. Overall a wonderful stay at Gujrat Bhavan. Would recommend to others.

The overall ambience is very good, ideal for families. Food and service excellent. Food actually holds the homemade taste besides they serve so very willingly that you cant resist overeating. All the hotel staff are very nice & very cooperative. I would love going back to the place again. The deluxe rooms are excellent, had a look at the regular rooms & was disappointed.

"Overall good with good swimming pool"

5.4/7
Posted 2 years ago

Our visit from 5 March 2014 to 8 March 2014 in two a/c deluxe rooms. Cost for midweek stay was Rs.3000/- for double occupancy with all food right from bed tea/ coffee etc. to breakfast, lunch, tea/ coffee and dinner. In between you pay extra for what you want. The kitchen is alive. From Friday to Sunday the above rate is Rs.3800/-. There are fixed timings for the food. Better take a note. Tea/ coffee/ milk in the morning served in thermos in the room. Then breakfast in the dining room at 8:30 or so with daily change and served hot. Lunch between about 1 to 2:30. Tea/ coffee/ milk in the room at 4:30 pm. Dinner in the dining room from 8:30 or so to 10:00 pm. There is an open air swimming pool well maintained. At Matheran city people miss the internet signals not regularly available and mobile networks may not be functioning or erratically functioning. When we went even the MTNL landlines were not working. We went from Ghatkopar east to Neral by private taxi Rs.2400/- plus the toll taxes both ways even if it is a drop. The local taxi operators who take people from Neral railway station to the hilltop at Dasturi. Aman lodge charge Rs.50/- per seat with 7 passengers crammed three in the front and four behind. One can hire the full taxi and pay Rs.350/-. It takes about 30 min to reach the top. All vehicles have to stop at Dasturi-Aman Lodge and there is a big parking lot. From here Matheran railway station is about 2.5 km. and one can walk along the track, or sit in man driven cycle or take a horse ride. Cooly are available at this point. Last December the authorities have started a shuttle hill train service between Dasturi-Aman Lodge and Matheran railway. There is an entry tax of Rs. 50/- per person. There is another way to travel from Neral railway station (base) to the hill top Dasturi point and that is toy or hill train. It is nearly 2 hrs. 10-15 min. winding its way up through the forest. But many times only skeleton services are available as engine is not working or some reason. During rains these trains stop plying. Even in March there was cold up there and one wore hot clothing. During rains most of Matheran empties out as there is no much tourism though it is most beautiful during rains. I think the best time to go would be beginning of rains say first week of June. Bargain and negotiate with coolies; cycle pullers; horse wallahs. I would highly recommend Gujarat Bhavan - Mr. Bharatbhai the Manager, Mr. Umeshbhai Dubal resident of Mumbai and owner who stays at the Bhavan on weekdays Fridays to Sundays. Their email and phone nos. are available on the internet. Search on Gujarat Bhavan, Matheran. Choose rooms facing East so that the rising sun rays wake you up inside the room. Beware of monkeys.

5.8/7
Posted 3 years ago

It was our vacation tour for my family.We stayed there for 4 night 5 days.The hotel is located at the end of market area.Having very peaceful environment. Good landscaping with medium swimming pool and two water ride and area allotted in pool for kids. Number of swings,slide,verity of climber for kids was nicely placed in campus.Indoor game,badminton court is also there.In short full of activity scope is there.Front desk official is very cooperative in all manner.He got enough knowledge for surrounding.He found very eager to help. Fortunately the owner of property was also there he is real gentlemen.We share lot about matheran. He is operating this business more then fifty years.The room is self contained with balcony,Very specious room with double bed sofa,TV,wardrobe and dressing table. Interior of room is good but the bathroom may not be consider good. Cleanliness of property is excellent. Food was vegetarian only and we love that food.The attendant of food service was very cooperative.He served food with different menu during my entire stay.Over all we enjoyed stay at hotel gujarat bhavan. We are not using alcohol if any one have fond of the same should make arrangement from village karjat,or pick up from your journey.
