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.
