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.
Hotel was very good. They welcomes with soft welcome drink. Lunch and dinner was very good. Even play area for children was very good, near to station. All the places are nearby. I will advice travellers to visit this hotel only with low rates. Even night disco arranged over there
Last December I have stayed in this hotel, Gujarat Bhavan is the best hotels to stay at Matheran. 10 mins walking distance from Matheran station. The rooms are well and good. Food is amazing and they serve quite tasty food, there is a buffet system in this hotel and I feel good experience. Its services is also very good compare to different hotels. It's location is very nice. Overall room, staff services and food were all very good and excellent. I personally feel that it is"excellent and a pleasant" hotel to stay for every people.
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 vacation specially my son enjoyed a lot.

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.
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.
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.
The hotel is a good budget hotel. The rooms can be booked before hand , as the hotel has a office in Mumbai.The rates keeps on changing as per the season.1 day stay or package booking is also available.The hotel is only 5 minute walk from the Matheran Railway station. The room charges includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & morning , Evening Tea. The staff is very friendly. The best part is that B'fast & Dinner are Buffet, and food is available till the end, and there is no shortage of food. The Lunch is served in the restaurant, and is served till you are completely satisfied.( Mind your do not over fill yourself, as walking will be difficult afterwords).The restaurant also serves on a la carte, on extra cost. The food is pure veg, and they serve authentic, Gujarati Food, so if you have a flare for Guju food, this is a place to be.The breakfast 7 Lunch is served in the restaurant, and the Dinner is arranged near the pool. The hotel has a neat swimming pool which can be used any time till 6 in the evening. There is a small part for kids to enjoy the swing, slides and kid stuff. For the adults there is Badminton, Table Tennis, Chess, Carom etc. The hotel also accepts Credit Card, but it is on your luck if the network is working.So cash will be the best option.
