"Well protected place and good service "

6.7/7
Posted 13 days ago

My wife and I spent a day at the Verandah. We needed a horse to take us to the place as the distance is too much to walk. The place is well protected and beautiful. Good service. Spent quality time taking in the silence.

"Excellent property with nice rooms "

5.1/7
Posted 3 months ago

It is an excellent property with large rooms and period furniture housed in an old bungalow. The bathrooms are a bit letdown. The continental dinner was excellent. The breakfast was standard though. Please note that this is at one of the farthest points in Matheran and involves quite a bit of walking / horse-riding and the road condition is not at....

"Property was quite charming & room was clean"

4.0/7
Posted 9 months ago

We visited this property during a long weekend from Mumbai. The trek - While the drive from Mumbai to Matheran is quite nice, the last few kms need to be trekked on foot, by manual rickshaw or on horseback. As there are no pucca roads, it's quite an adventure. It might not be recommended for families with small children or older people. My paren....

You are forced to take lunch(buffet) and dinner because, the location of the hotel. It is far away from market place and there is no restaurant nearby. No la carte me....

"Amazingly located and well-maintained property "

6.0/7
Posted 1 year ago

This is a pilgrimage place for us. We go there once at least every year. It is a place to relax. There is no TV, so families can actually bond with each other. Activities include just one Table Tennis table in the garden. So if you enjoy hustle and bustle this is not the place for you. There is a tree house which we enjoy sitting in in the evenings....

"Good hotel experience and well-maintained "

6.0/7
Posted 1 year ago

The hotel is a little out of the center. Stayed here drinking tea and the rooms, unfortunately for viewing only. The hotel is very well-maintained and lovingly decorated in colonial style. Spacious rooms, comfortable, very good restaurant. The staff are very courteous. Highly recommended. On our list for another stay.

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.....
