Good hotel to stay


I went to Velneshwar and stayed at resort in the month of December for a holiday trip with my family. The destination was good as the temple was good. The location of the hotel is good. The appearance of the hotel is good as it is decent from inside than the outside. Reception was good as they were quick and polite. The room was booked online through. Room was good as it was spacious and comfortable. Service was no there at the hotel. Food was good as it tasted like home food. Overall the hotel is good to stay.

The variety in food was available in the hotel. The room facility was well maintained. WiFi connection was provided in the room. The check in and checkout was not delayed. The service was done on time. The behaviour of the staff was helpful. The best part of this hotel was food. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

Average place but helpful staff


I had stayed in Matheran for 2 nights stay How to Reach: The resort is located at Dasturi Naka - the last place up to which the vehicles are allowed in Matheran. You can park your own vehicle here and can walk to the resort. If you are coming by train, you can get down at Neural and can take the toy train till Aman Lodge station Weather: We travelled during the month of May, the peak of summer season but the temperature was quite pleasant. At Neural you could feel the pinch in the air but when you came to Matheran you were welcomed by cool breeze. You did not feel the heat even while walking around since ample shade was provided by trees everywhere including the resort Staff: The staff was courteous and were always eager to help The rooms were clean and we had no major issues. Hot water was available all through the day One point is to make sure you have plenty of drinking water with you, you may not like the water that is available at the resort There is a train starting right from the resort to the main Market with frequency of every hour. Last train at around 4 pm. You can take horses too from the resort to the main market Room Tip: Buy water / cold drink from places like train station, etc. Other places they charge extra 5-15 rupees.

Clean rooms but service needs to improved


The location of hotel is at perfect place near by market, but you need to do booking in advance. Room service can be improved. Good food is available near by. Overall its a good place to rest and enjoy your life. Since cars and other vehicles are not allowed in that place the location of hotel helped us a lot and we didn't faced any problems in check-in and check-out process. Rooms were also very spacious.

Best location but no room services


The best things first - location of the resort is the best when it comes to Matheran, since cars and any types of vehicles are not allowed inside Matheran. This is just at the entrance gate As of now there is repair work going on the steps that lead to the various rooms, this makes it very difficult to walk down specially for people with kids & ladies. Room service is non existent for various categories of rooms, not even tea in the rooms Market place is a distant 4 km from the resort and the only way to reach is either take a horse ride, hand carts or walk down. The best & cheapest way to reach the market is the toy train ride but the timings for the same is 9:30 am till about 3:30 pm only.

Helpful staff and good view from rooms


We had good rooms and the staff was helpful. The bed was comfortable, there was TV with cable. Housekeeping was good. Staff gives you a bottle of water & some fruits. The view of the hotel is very good. We use to have good breakfast and after that we use to go for sightseeing and return at night. We stayed for 2 days only.

Satisfactory services & superb place to visit


The hotel was good in food quality and amenities are really good. But the issue was with rooms which were not spacious and cleanliness was not up to the mark. The location of the hotel was convenient and appearance was pretty good. The staff members in the hotel are helpful and friendly in behaviour. The taste of the food was fabulous and there was no delay in service. The hotel did not arrange any activity but that was fine. There was one hour delay during check-in but check-out was done quickly and I would say the hotel was satisfactory for staying and worth for money.

Beautiful front office; staff is friendly

Posted 17 Jun, 2014

We went to Matheran for a Monsoon weekend break. The place is nice and easily accessible from Mumbai. It has a beautiful front office and location is just at the start of Matheran. This makes the place easy to reach. The rooms although non AC. The rooms are pretty big and spacious. There are different types of rooms available as per the budget . . The staff is friendly. The food offered is hot and tasty but a bit costly. Travelers are requested to take care of their belongings as there are lot of monkeys around. The place is good for a trek for nature lovers. There is lots of flora and fauna around that place. This makes the place more beautiful.

Fantastic hotel to stay with beautiful surroundings

Posted 22 Dec, 2014

The hotel was located near to the city and there was no difficulty in finding the hotel. The staff service was excellent and they were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were spacious, clean, neat and maintained. Pillows, blankets and bed sheets were in clean condition. There was a beautiful garden view from the room. AC, TV and Geyser with all other amenities were in good working condition. We had food in the same hotel, the quality and the taste was good but the cost was little bit high. There was no delay while check-in and check-out procedure. Overall the stay was value for the money and I would like to recommend to other travellers.

Average stay, poor hospitality & room, good food

Posted 27 Jul, 2014

My wife and I visited Matheran in last November. We had got reservations in advance at. As we reached there, there was no one to receive us. Is 2km away from main city. The room was not up to the mark. Sanitation is below average. The food was good. But surrounding was horrorful. Nothing was available. To go to main city every time one has to hire horses. In all my experience is average.
