Cons- Standard deluxe rooms which is the lowest category rooms were not up to the mark in terms of infra, room size, interiors were too old. Special request... More

Bathrooms are in pathetic situation. Curtain rods are there but there is no curtain in bathroom, showers are not functioning, there is no table or stool to sit in bathroom if your... More

Just by its name you will surely think that its one of the best hotel in matheran, but its not. Personally i think it was the worst experience during the stay. The rooms are below average, and they charge a bomb for that. The room service is the worst, your tv or A/c will surely won't work. After complaining about... More

I had a very good time in the property. Pool, rain dance, tennis, indoor games, night disco were good. The areas surrounding the rooms could have been more clean. But there was no problem with the rooms. The food is inclusive which was great given there there is no great choice outside the hotel. However, It could have improved the... More

Expecting a lot probably but we're left starving for basic needs. When we checked in we came to know that swimming pool and rain dance was under renovation...that came a shock to us vacation means staying in a pool for long. Our so called top category villa lacked Wi-Fi connectivity inside room. Top floor tv was not working while telephone... More
