Per day tariff of the room was around 3800 rupees. Location wise, the hotel was located near to the lake and also it was situated at walking distance to the railway station but it was located bit interior and so one could reach to the hotel only through horses and if you wish to go for any sightseeing then also horse are the only available option. Appearance of the hotel was very nice. Room was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. Geyser and other basic amenities were available in the room and they all were functioning properly but AC and TV were not available. Nice view was visible from the room window. I took my food inside the hotel and quality and taste wise, the food was very good. Both varieties were available there veg and non-veg. Complimentary breakfast they served. Check in and check out facility was not delayed. behaviour of the staff members was very cooperative and services were also quick. Indoor games were available there like carom, etc. I stayed there three times. I visited there with my family in July month 2013. They arranged horse facility for sightseeing trip. Overall my stay in the hotel was good.

The hotel was very good. The appearance of the hotel was very good. The room was good. It was not spacious. All the amenities were working properly. There was a valley view from the room. I had food in the food. They provide only veg, it was good. There was no delay in check-in and out. I don't have any idea about the extra activities in the hotel. The hotel was worth for the money paid. I will recommend the hotel to other travellers. I don't have suggestions regarding the hotel. I went with my family. It was relaxation trip.

If you are looking at a peaceful, relaxed serene getaway, Verandah in the Forest is your answer. Not only are the surroundings charming, the rooms are also spacious with vintage wooden furniture and named after Parsi families. Please expect to be totally cut off from the world, as there was no mobile network, internet connection or television, and that for us was just what we look for, while planning our holidays. There was a lovely sitting area in the huge verandah where you can have your morning breakfast, afternoon lunch or evening tea. It overlooks the property, and you get a view of the wonderful trees surrounding it. It was quite romantic, to sit there, sipping on tea and looking out. There was a lovely common room where you can meet the other people staying on the property. Sometimes, you get to meet intellectual celebrities too, if you are lucky (we met Adil Jussawalla, the poet). The best part about this place was the evening dinner. A lovely 4 course continental dinner, in a candlelit spacious dining hall was a beautiful experience. That was one of the memories that we cannot forget.

A little vintage bungalow type property located in the matheran city. What a peace you get spending the weekend here. Its been my 3rd time and they really have been very consistent with the quality. I never saw any guest complaining about anything while my all of the stays here. Superb staff really, food was nice always. Room was well-decorated and provides nice ambiance. I loved the stay.

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!
