Experience was slendid.The USP of this resort is the location which is totally isolated and away from the noise of the market side.Most of the points were very near to this location which makes this resort all the more fit for a perfect experience.

Best Experience: The location of the hotel was the best part.Followed by the spaciousness of the rooms and the service

Worst Experience: Everything was perfect about this hotel!

I had a fantastic time at the Verandah in the forest.
This property stands out tall amidst all the other places that exist in Matheran. Amazing rooms, extremely courteous and accomodating staff, serene and beautiful, no non-sense and hustle bustle, extremely awesome food, nice guests... everything about the place is mindblowing!
I must say, Neemrana has changed my perception of a holiday.

Best Experience: There were quite a few. To name them:-
1. The tree house.
2. The cozy sitting outside the rooms.
3. The candle lit dinner.
4. The rustic feel of the place.

Worst Experience: Nothing! Nothing at all!

Very nice. It really feels that you are staying in someone\'s home. No formalities of a hotel at all. I would recommend this group to anyone any time. Even for the honeymooners, its best.

Best Experience: Dinner

Worst Experience: Nothing.

A little over a couple of hours from Mumbai, who would have thought such a place of peace existed. A little vintage bungalow in the middle of the woods, a horse ride through winding paths through the forest, and you feel you're in an Enid Blyton adventure.

Sit back in the long verandah with your hot cup of chai, or if you'd rather fancy a hammock in the garden, bring along good book and slowly find yourself dozing away, under the crisp rustle of trees and chirping birds.

Oh, watch out for the monkeys :-)

Best Experience: The service is impeccable. The best part was our dinner in the long royal dining table in the central hall. Beautifully laid out, candle lit, romantic. Takes you back to another bygone era.

Worst Experience: I can't think of a bad experience. I have been there twice, and both times, perfect.

This property is located in the forest so there is no network coverage for telephones which we found it to be a problem. It looks like a haveli sort it was good but i think it is mostly catered to foreigners cause of the cost.

Once we arrive in the resort, its like coming back into nature..we arrived on a rainy evening...the mist was floating into the Verandah. We were quickly settled down by the staff. It was tea time, so there was hot masala chai with some yummy pakoras on the table in no time. The children were happy to run around in the verandah and we adults were happy to relax in the plantation chairs and sip tea. The resort is a heritage place. The cielings are high, the bathrooms can fit your entire modern apartments. The rooms are extremely spacious. It felt like we had entered a bygone era. Its a perfect place to go and spend some quality time with your folks. However if you are looking for modern amenties like a pool or an AC in your room then its not the place. The food options are limited but yummy. They actually have sit down candle lit dinners. Its an experience to be had. Matheran itself gets wet and beautiful in the rains and this place by sheer location and ambience gets the best in terms of view.

Best Experience: The staff is extremely helpful..to an extent that one of them went with a torch at about 9 PM in the night to fetch my better half who arrived late in matheran..and the place gets real scary. There was not a murmur when we made this request..a torch was arranged ..an umbrella picked up and the staff got going in like 30 secs.

It was amazing experience , the ambience,the food and not so hotel feeling .We really felt pampered.

Best Experience: The evening candle light dinner in a very imposing dining area was beyond words .The colonial feel was soothing . The other guests became friends so easily because of eating at the same table . It became almost like a family .

We went to Matheran on a weekday, so it was very quite and pleasant.
No network coverage.
The place is very romantic for couple, since they do not have any facilities like T.V., play area it is little boring for kids but if you want to destress yourself and rejevunate then this the place to be at.
They have a huge spread of Breakfast, Indian Lunch and continental four course dinner.
Though the place is little towards expesive side but it is worth the money spent

Best Experience: Verandah in the Forest is almost end of Matheran.Since we went there in a rainy season, when we were on our way to the Hotel we felt as if we are entering clouds.

Worst Experience: Nothing as such.
