Hotel has nice swimming pool, owner had arranged for superb activities. DJ was arranged for 31 st December night it was fun. We were 5 couples who visited the place. Nice hospitality was provided by the owner and best part of hotel was they asked arranged for our breakfast.
It was very calm and cool place. It has clean swimming pool and polite staff. Faced few problem due to bad weather as boiler was not working but they provide us hot water in bucket in the room. We reached hotel late in the afternoon and without any formalities, Mishra ji directly showed our rooms and arranged the lunch. I thank to him, that was very nice gesture. Hotel has a WiFi connectivity that help us to keep connected to whatsapp and internet as there was very low Mobile network. Swimming pool was small but very nice and clean. Food was very tasty with less oil and spice, I loved the paneer bhurj. Few suggestion to the hotel - they should provide geyser in the rooms so that we can have a Bath at anytime when we want. Towels provided were very small in size, it looks like child towel, so I request them to do needful. Blankets provided were warm but not soft, some time it was itching, so I request them to provide a soft blankets Overall it was a very nice experience. The climate of the Matheran was very nice because of the rain. So it was very unforgettable experience for us. I thank to hitesh and special thanks to Mishraji, they were gems of this hotel and all the staff of the paramount hotel.
It was an adventurous trip on 18 December, 2014 with my college friends and we booked "Paramount" as this was the only option available in Matheran on heavy discount through Goibibo portal. We paid 1795 INR for simple deluxe room inclusive of complementary breakfast for two of us. This was the first time when we were in Matheran and didn't know much about the place in advance. So when we reached at Matheran, a lot of people who were the coolies and horse owners started running towards at our car to ask about which hotel you have booked or looking for any hotel. When I said " sir Paramount", they said sir "It will take 45-60 minutes from car parking point and you have to take two horses or Cart". One can also go by foot but again you have to take coolie at least. Later I came to know that I could have board in the train from Aman Lodge station, 5 min walk from parking point and could have alighted at Mathran station from where you have to walk uphill for next 10 minutes to reach at Hotel . . Hotel was located near by Matheran Market, so don't expect much that you are much close to nature if you are looking for as It is not seclusive from hustle bustle. Swimming pool was not operational as It was cold but not looked maintained also. Room was quite average having small bathroom without toiletries. It was equipped with small TV set with limited cable channels, comfortable mattresses and no carpet on floor. Housekeeping and staff were really kind and prompt in response. The best part of the hotel is it will give you all 3 meals complementary and food was really good having lot of varieties which makes the hotel value for money in town I would suggest if one does not have expectation form room and does not want to spend much time at hotel then this is the best option in an economical budget Rest be careful in reaching at there from Car parking point. I Will recommend you to board in train from Aman Lodge(5min by foot from parking), get down at Matheran and hire collie from there in 50-100 rs. It wont burn a hole in your pocket. If looking for horse ride and cart for travel mode then get ready with your negotiation skills. I would say per horse and per cart pay(INR) 300-400, 400-500 respectively and for coolie 150 as confirmed with hotel manager at Paramount Don't take room on ground floor or opposite to reception because of lot of noise I would definitely visit this hotel in future but will be careful while dealing with horse owners and coolies or will prefer toy train as mode
Rooms: We booked a super deluxe AC room, just to find out it was not even worth of a standard room. Only good thing about the room was that, the AC was working fine, as soon as we entered the bed linen caught our attention rusty stains and old bed sheet. Same with the pillow and pillow covers, there were spiders coming out from below the bed. On our request the room service fellow changed the bed sheet, the new ones were also similar but with less stains. Somehow we decided not to get hyper and adjust with it. We had a very tiring journey hence thought of a shower, but no hot water, hot water is only between 7 am to 9 am and considering the climate in Matheran it was a task to have a cold water Bath, they should arrange geysers in rooms keeping in mind that the guests might want to have a hot water shower in the cold weather. To top it up, the shower didn't work, we had to manage with the bucket. The door mop was filled with mud, wiping wet legs meant getting the wet dust all over the room Food: Please be careful about the reviews on different sites which mention non veg food being served here, we fell for it, just to find out this is a pure veg hotel, we ended up eating outside as the veg food was very average Exteriors and entertainment: The hotel premises are good with a swing, swimming pool, sitting area. They have a DJ playing around 8pm to 10:00 pm, who plays mostly Bollywood music. The swimming pool is quite small Overall this place is good for big groups and families with kids, who prefer veg food but couples and people looking to relax please avoid For management: Please invest in some good bed linen, to be specific pillows, pillow covers and bed sheet, foot mops, curtains, property is good, it can be managed better though.
Old hotel but not maintained. Hotel needs renovation. Not good housekeeping. Laundry service needs much correction. Linens needs replacement Hot water only for 2 hours at 7 am Lazy services. Food was better than all other services. More than average food Hotel location is good. Small swimming pool, table tennis table, badminton equipment & place, carrom board are recreational things to enjoy WiFi is working fine around reception and not good enough at rooms & lobby. TV channels were not available & reception was very bad. Intercom was not working This hotel & other surrounding hotels have disco night sessions everyday in the open space creating nuisance till 10-10:30 pm. You can't have peaceful stay, as it's very loud and disturbing.
Hotel is with high price tag. However if you enter room it doesn't surprise you as it is with Old furniture, Old Bathroom. Hotel location is also not on scenery location. However afternoon gujarati food and morning was really nice compared to evening Punjabi dinner. Hotel is near to Market so walkable distance. Staff is less but cooperative.
