Hotel Woodlands Matheran
Ranked #11 of 22 Hotels in Matheran
Reviewed 27 March 2012

I visited with my family & in-laws, & as I stay in a typical crowded urban city; my first choice was to find a secluded place in Matheran where vehicles are not allowed in the interiors of hill station. The hotel provides packages with food included for 2 nights or more. Hotel is located away from main market area of matheran, amidst a dense forest with only one more hotel in vicinity and away from main street on which horses ride. After sunset, we got a thrilling experience of walking through a dense forest and finding our hotel, with one or two signboards for direction at crossroads. Few rooms are secluded for privacy. Hotel serves fixed menu. Food is simple, limited & sometimes spicy. Horse rides can be booked from hotel and all scenic locations are away from this hotel. Monkeys & domestic dogs give you company during daytime and monkeys are aggressive. Its best not to instigate them by feeding even once. All belongings need to kept in room & room locked, as monkeys have learnt to open the latched doors. Room rates & service is excellent. Hotel staff is very very courteous. Its not a posh hotel, but very relaxing.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side, facing badminton court provide privacy.

We have been to Hotel Woodsland about a year ago. Its an extraordinary hotel not in terms of Luxary but in terms of peace, and calm surrounding. Rooms are very spacious & even the bathroom gives you enough space to move & are clean.. Pure veg food.. The food is simple but very tasty. Its a place you can go along with your family and parents because decent family visit there. People who have been there seems were not the first time visitors ... There first two rooms are very big with a very different look there is a stares within the room wich will connect it to the 2nd floor. .. Sply good if a joint family is going for a family get together... Its a typical parsi hotel.. very spacious ... good for someone who wants to come out of his 1BHK life style.. Else there are many 1BHK's available in matheran... its little away from the market that's the real beauty of this place. So its makes it less crowded. .. After been to this place cant think of any other place in matheran so i am going back to woodsland once again this weekend along with my sister & brotherinlaw.. Staff's are very friendly & treat you like family. Thomas uncle who's the manager there is also very cooparative. Price wise its value for money. Little bit of extra cleaneness sply bedsheets & pillow covers will make it will make it more perfect.

Room Tip: A basic travel tip for ever, and it works - Always be polite with staff's. Try to shell off 20...

Good things first: The food is awesome and the staff is very helpful, prompt and polite. Location is really awesome and it becomes beautiful in monsoon. These things actually absorbed a lot of bad experience in Hotel Woodlands Matheran. We had to deal with really bad, dirty, ragged and smelly pillows, bed-sheets, and towels. The hotel management should sort out these things, as we did not get the value for our money.

if u r looking to go out of city , but budget is an issue...this bunglow fits well in one's pocket
food is home like
no frills hotel
one who loves forest feel plus monkeys , dogs
negative point :bit far from main market , but the 10 min walk is quite scenic n serene but one has to return to hotel before sunset , as roads are not well lighted plus no sign boards.
way back can be bit tricky.

Woodlands Hotel is situated in the middle of dense woods of Matheran and is a favorite resort for me. It is a charming colonial-style hotel with a homely atmosphere & food. It is close to, (probably a ten minutes walk) the railway station and 30-35 minutes walk from the Matheran taxi stand. The food is exquisite and simple. The hotel offers excellent games for little children, all this at a very affordable prices. Great stay for a great leisure trip.
