"View from hotel was beautiful!"

4.3/7
Posted 5 months ago

Beautiful view and I see sun rise from the window, I like that. Service is good. Nature was beautiful and fresh. Very happy to stay in Matheran, hotel is nice but road is so dangerous, early morning was so romantic, I will go next time definitely to Matheran.

We visited this place with my friends last month in August from 17th to 19th. I booked this lodge on the basis of previous reviews. At the time of booking, Rane kaka informed me about all the services he provide. And planned our 2 days trip starts with timings of train to reach to dasturi naka. He himself came to receive us to Dasturi Naka. And....

"Best place to stay in Matheran "

6.5/7
Posted 9 months ago

I visited Matheran last weekend with my college friends and it was worth visiting! Such a memorable getaway to cherish! We had a stay at Vakratund Cottage which is close to Dasturi and market. It also had a beautiful valley view with decent rooms. Customer service was awesome as Rane uncle (owner) guided and planned our trip so well that we coul....

"Great Disappointment ; poor stay "

1.8/7
Posted 12 months ago

There was no swimming pool & there were no servants. Everything was self service. This includes carrying a bucket of water for bathing. We booked the hotel after reading previous reviews on net. I'm wondering whether we stayed in the same hotel or there is any other Vakrutund!? So first visit the place and only then pay. Definitely not recommend....

"Overall poor service and hotel maintenance"

1.4/7
Posted 12 months ago

We were promised a bungalow close to the market with home cooked food and an excellent view. However we received multiple shocks in the form of poor location, tin roof with no AC giving us a restless night sleep. No facilities in the rooms or bathrooms and clumsy dangerous staircases with an extremely indifferent but, very polite owner cum host cum....

"Location is poor and not recommended for families "

1.8/7
Posted 12 months ago

If you are expecting a comfortable cottage with nice facilities, then this is not the place for you. We had booked the cottage for our family holiday in April 2015. We had been attracted by the home cooked food that other reviews talk about, particularly because we have a child with nut allergies. Mr Rane was charming on the phone, assuring us t....
