They are also known for their food. Morning breakfast Afternoon lunch and evening Tea and night dinner. Everything is very tasty and healthy plus very much hygienic.
They also organize Magic shows and Puppet Shows for the guests.
"A decent Hotel for Family as well as Group stay!!!"
Booked this hotel for one night stay with friends...The location is about 10 minutes walk from Matheran station.. in the lap of the nature.. no shops or any other disturbance near the hotel which brings you more closure to the nature..
The property is very large and the rooms are scattered at a distance so there will be o disturbance at all from other rooms.
We had stayed in a large room of 7 which is part of a big bungalow.
had a swimming pool in front of our door...there's a kids pool as well. A very large play area for children....
Rooms are very neat and clean.. hotel has a restaurant but we did not use it..
Hotel staff is very cooperative.
Few people may find location of the hotel inconvenient due to distance from the main market.. though it is fund walking to this property...Overall very satisfied with the Hotel service and will definitely recommend this for
Room Tip: If you are travelling in a group ask for room in a bunglow
