Gujarat Bhavan Hotel stands out as a value-for-money destination with its tranquil, village-like setting and vast natural surroundings earning high marks from guests. The hotel's cleanliness is consistently praised, with special mentions of well-maintained rooms and a pristine swimming pool. Amenities are abundant, featuring a large pool, kids' area, and games, although some guests suggest the rooms could benefit from updates. Its prime location near the Matheran Railway Station and main market adds to the hotel's appeal, and the service is often described as welcoming and attentive, contributing to the overall homely atmosphere. However, while the rooms are clean, a few reviewers point out the need for maintenance.

Had dinner on one of the days of our stay at Gujarati bhavan. The food was just yummy to say the least. They charge 300 for dinner and 250 for lunch. Children are charged half. on the weekday we visited there were about 5 other families. Starts at 8 and would be good to be part of it when it starts.
First came the soothing soup followed by the best bhel i have ever eaten. Then came the main course of puri, paratha, khichadi and rice with delicious curries. Was one satisfying meal. The incharge was quite in command very watchful and making sure that things are served properly. My children just enjoyed it.

Note they serve jain food too and the food is not limited

i had a lastminute plan to visit Matheran, and decided to book my stay with Gujrat bhavan, which i had visited a long back. Happy to mention here that all staff , food , cleanliness of property did not let my expectation down and had a very comfortable and relaxing experience. Also the location of property is very nicely situated which is very convenient to reach to main market place and for hiring horse rides to view all major points.

We went on 07 to 09 Nov 2022 ( Week days). We liked the property as it is little away from crowded area(market) and food is good . Maharaj and Owner will come and ask each about food and that was nice. My wife was having fast on one of the day and they were kind enough to make separate food for her.

We were happy with the stay and we will be back to same place again in next future.
They have swimming pool too.
You can visit Lake , Eco Point , Louisa point from There and Try to see Run rise from Ram Baug point which is not much far from this location.

They server Pure veg so enjoy.

I have been visiting Matheran atleast once or even twice a year with my family since more than 30 years & barring a couple of occasions we have always been staying at Gujrat Bhavan Hotel (GBH). This hotel, which actually should be called a resort because of its vast area, big swimming pool with slide, kids pool, games, music system etc, scores above other hotels in Matheran on account of many points.
Greenery & forest atmosphere is the main attraction of Matheran And here at GBH they have preserved that charm. The surrounding area of the hotel is so vast that you can relax here in the completely natural atmosphere.
Besides that the hotel is centrally located in the heart of Matheran- just 3 mins walk from main market. Lake, echo pt are also nearby.
The hotel staff is very polite & co-operative. They treat & serve you with so much love and care that we feel very homely here.
The food over here is very yummy & hence is famous in the entire Matheran. In addition to traditional Gujarati Thali they also serve Chat dishes, Punjabi, Chinese and Italian cuisine. We very much enjoy all the varieties served in breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And last but not the least, the owner of the property, Shri Umeshbhai, is a very kind & humble person. All these years he has run the hotel not just with the intention of profit making but he has also maintained very healthy relationship with the customers.

So for me, As Matheran So GBH only!

Average place. Food quality especially lunch was good and so do the swimming pool. The co-tourists were family and that too was a good thing. on the con side, the list is long. Dinner was okay. Breakfast was poor. Rooms are in bad shape. The bed, blankets and pillows were smelling too bad. Very difficult to sleep for a sober person in such dirty smell and feel. Lots of misquotes. Wifi was not working and take several hours to get it running. The washroom were dirty and geyser was too slow. Poor housekeeping and no empathy for customers. It is an old property typically focusing its old and regular customers. Needs renovation badly. Location of the property is good. I don't think it is value for money. The feeling of newness is not there. Everything is old say the color, TV set, washroom commode, sink, water jet, geyser, mirror ... the list in very long. The management of GB needs to take major steps to revamp the facility. For tourist, a go to place if offered 40 to 50% discounts.
