The Verandah in the Forest Reviews
Lovely place to stay so close to Mumbai. Away from the main market area of Matheran, it's perfect if you wish to curl up with a book, play scrabble or go for long walks on the innumerable trails around
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.

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.
