"Excellent stay with awesome food"

6.0/7
Posted 9 Feb

I had been to the hotel in the month February with my family. The destination of the hotel is good as it is pollution free place. Location of the hotel was brilliant as it was close to market. Best way to reach is walk. The appearance of the hotel was very good ass greenery was good. Reception staffs were excellent in the hotel as check in was done on time in spite of reaching the hotel late. It was a direct boking. Services are also considered to be excellent as the staffs were good. Room allotted to us was good to stay as it was clean and every balcony was closed with the net, the room was also spacious. The food was very excellent as it tasted awesome. They had games like carom, table tennis and chees. I wish to recommend this hotel for other travellers as the food is very awesome and the location is very convenient. Overall it was an excellent experience.

"One of the Best"

5.8/7
Posted 20 Jun, 2016

Provides big rooms to stay for the family. Can accommodate easily upto 6 persons in a room. Have plenty of rooms. Packed on weekend and holidays. Lot of space to enjoy and play for children. About food, can provide buffet for every time meal, but lacks in facility for the snacks. Average quality food, which can goes to very good on occasions. About staff, full marks for each and every staff. Very humble, courteous and friendly.

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.

5.5/7
Posted 1 Aug, 2015

It was a very good hotel. The hotel was located conveniently. The appearance of the hotel was good looking. The staffs at the front office were very good. They had not delay in check in and checkout. The room service was provided on time. The housekeeping staffs were good in their service. The room assigned to me was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. Hot and cold water facility was provided in the room. The amenities were in working condition. The hotel had served only veg food. The price of the food was a bit expensive. The hotel had provided some indoor games and a swimming pool also. It was a relaxing trip with family. I would surely recommend this hotel to other travellers. I don’t have any suggestion for the hotel.

6.4/7
Posted 4 Aug, 2010

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 13 May, 2014

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.

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.
