The property is well-located with easy accessibility to the market and also away from the hustle bustle. It has a well-equipped children's play area and the swimming pool is also maintained properly. Staff was very helpful, courteous and cooperative. Food was excellent and so was the ambience that it was served in. No two thoughts on the best hotel. This is an old property with basic amenities. Rooms though certainly can be improved. Beds are Ok. There is a swimming pool, which is Ok compared to matheran standards. Check the water quality before you take a plunge in. The play area for children is good.

Food is excellent (Though only veg). Room service is not very good not fresh. Towels were provided the next day. Rest all is average. Its quite a bit away from the station so avoid if carrying heavy bags. We had 3 days stay but if you want quieter environment then ask from the room away as there was lot of noise from the DJ of adjacent hotel.

It is an average hotel with a not so clean swimming pool. But fantastic Gujarati food with such dedicated and servile waiters who keep serving you food. You have to force them to stop. Also earlier Matheran was smelling of horse and I got nauseated eating this food. The Management must improve the activities and add Karaoke to their list of activities. I remember that they have carom and tt and the usual swings.

Swimming pool and garden was available. Matheran is a beautiful place.

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.

Stay is good with a/c and non-a/c rooms, service at reception is good, food is excellent with lots of variety, but not for non veg as it is pure veg restaurant, though it is Gujarat bhavan but open for all castes. Activities like carom, swimming pool and table tennis is good. Good for family trip and outing away from Mumbai busy schedule, very easily reachable from Mumbai. Small train wonder at Matheran. Enjoy the ride in sahyadri hills with no pollution as no vehicles are allowed only horses are available. Must visit once in life time.
