We have been to this property 4 times till now & planning to stay here once again. Superb location. We enjoy a walk from Dasturi Naka to this Hotel while going there as well as while coming back to Matheran. Food is very good. Every day different variety. Love this place.

Peace, Privacy, Food, Entertainment and service...all top notch. Though booking experience with clear trip was very poor. If you want to reconnect with nature and recharge ur soul from the daily hustle of city life, this is the best place just a step away.

Cecil is located in highly picturesque place with great view. Many points are very close by and at walking distance from the hotel. The service is highly excellent and owner personally looks after everything. Food is authentic Indian. Only problem is the quality of washrooms.

It is one of the oldest hotels in Matheran and if you are a nature-lover, this is one place you can stay. Another good thing is that the lodging is very cheap.
