We stayed at Byke for 2 nights on our visit to Matheran. This property is bit far from Matheran railway station and market but located in a very scenic and quiet place. The resort has different types of cottages and we stayed in pool facing cottages. Our cottages had nice seating area with in front facing the pool. However, one should be careful of monkeys since they are in abundance in whole of Matheran. The resort serves pure veg food and was amazing in taste and quality. Overall, we had a good stay with lots of memories.
The rooms are good. The hotel is pure veg so veg people will enjoy the food. In morning the breakfast is best and with monkey all around the securrity people try their best to get rid of them. So we can enjoy a lot. Hotel has number of activities and children also loved it. The bad part is it s located at the last past of Matheran. But still okay
It is located little away from market, around 1 kms. But starting from rooms, they are decorated in British era decor. But the peace in resort is so captivating that you will just keep resting in room or swinging on many swings there. Food is mostly included in package but its really tasty. They serve buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner but its very delicious and had lot of options. They have well maintained swimming pool, rain dance, live karaoke and disc for late night dancing. Overall even if you stay in resort only you will never be bored. Awesome service, awesome food, awesome place . Can't stress enough on how happy I was out there . Love you Bike Retreat If you are visiting in couple or with family, go for it !!!
I went to Matheran in the month of November 2016. It was an official trip. I booked this hotel directly. The destination was a very nice place. The hotel location was very convenient for our stay.

The service staff were provided all wants on time. The booked room was well organized and well cleaned. The bathroom was clean and tidy. The bed was clean and comfortable.

I visited this property with my office colleagues for a overnight outing. This is a Heritage property located in an area of 7 acres surrounded by dense trees and away from noise. Byke Retreat is quite a walk from Matheran taxi stand as it takes almost 1 hour walking to reach this property. This property consists of various cottages, deluxe rooms and executive rooms all of which feature balcony. We had booked the executive suite which consists of 2 bedrooms and a balcony facing the front. The swimming pool was big enough but since it was winter, we did not dare to use it. This property also has its own discotheque and it played very groovy songs. Charlotte Lake is the nearest tourist point which is at a walking distance of 30 minutes from this property. The food was good but they only serve pure vegetarian and Jain food. Staff and the front desk were friendly and always ready to help. Overall a wonderful and peaceful stay for all of us. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone for peaceful and enjoyable stay.
Not worth the money (Rs. 6500 for a super Deluxe AC room for 1 night) for Byke Hotel, considering a 3 star Hotel. I had very short planning & time; I decided to go with make my trip, as I saw some discounts that I thought I could apply to a so called 3 star Hotel. Post discount I had to pay Rs. 5400. The other one I saw up the list was Usha Ascott (maybe I should I have tried that one! When we reached the reception, we were asked to pay another 1380 for my kid of 4 years, while online, I saw it was only 1200 INR. I was denied additional corporate discount for my kid. In spite of paying additional money, there was no additional facility for my kid. I had to call housekeeping for an additional pillow. The bed-sheets were untidy & I had to call housekeeping to change them. The room look like a super Deluxe OR up to that standard as it was stinking. I had to make the guy put some air freshener as well. One of the good things about the stay was the Lunch, Tea & Dinner, which was good (not excellent, as I am a non-vegetarian). I would personally say, no value for this much money.
