“Memorable & Comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

The hotel offers very comfortable & nice stay with great food option. The cost is also very reasonable. Compare to the food along with the good accommodation that it offers; Worth. Little outside market, towards Dasturi. Hotel need to provide more breakfast like meals.
Also, please keep the doors closed, as you may get a Monkey as a visitor in a room (We lost our big Fanta bottle). Staff is very good & courteous.
Suggested to take a/c rooms as the non a/c rooms are without gyser & provides hot water only in the morning.

Room Tip: Rooms are good, clean, but basic. Almost all the rooms are with DBL bed, few with extra bed inside.

Booked this hotel through a trek agency in Mumbai, as the plan to visit Matheran came up impromptu and no other option to book in advance through a travel website.

The rooms were full of moisture (rainy season), even the bed was almost wet..couldn't sleep properly at night. Add to that monkey menace - if you leave windows open all kind of insects and monkeys creep in.

The garden and the play area was good in the morning. Did some yoga there and had breakfast with the cool wind blowing in. It was quite relaxing. Playted some carrom and chess at night, provided by the hotel.

Food was pathetic - typical indian thali in dhaba types- that leaves you desiring that you never had it in the first place. Had to order snacks with beer from outside, as no bar.

Room service was also slow, as they dont have many people. Infact same 3-4 ppl cover everything from kitchen to reception to room service.

The jungle starts right below from the hotel gate so you can take a trek easily.

All in all, a bad experience.

Hotel Woodside is situated away from the regular hustle bustle of the Market areas (20 minutes ) as cmpared to other Hotels in Mathern. It built on a good ladscaped property with cottage type rooms .Both AC and non- AC rooms are available as per individual budget. The roomsa are very clean and the bathrooms are well maitained. The stay package includes breakfast , lunch , evening tea and dinner.

The food is homely and mostly veg but you get non-veg (try their butter chicken) on request. You can also get jain food again on request. The staff is very co-operative.

We (me , my wife and my 4 yr old daughter ) stayed there for a weekend and loved the experience. They are very flexible about the check in and check out timings as well.

Overall a good hotel at a good price in Matheran

Room Tip: Book early with thier Mumbai booking office

The manager lied to my face that he dint book a room for us. He dint have the courtesy to say this when I called him up from the railway station. Instead, he insisted that we come to his hotel 1st. Then he informed us that he hotel was fully booked, blatantly lied that I had any conversation with him the day before, and told us to find some other hotel.
He dint have even the decency to help find us a new hotel too, even when I asked if he could send anyone from his staff to guide us.
Awful

Hotel is located between dasturi and market, market is around 1 km from hotel. Location is nice, trees all around & quite. We were a group of 7 & booked 3 non-AC rooms. Booking was done through their mumbai office. Rooms were very small & just OK. Hot water only in morning for 2-3 hours. Staff was polite & helpful. Food was decent & homely.
