Hotel Woodlands Matheran
Ranked #11 of 22 Hotels in Matheran
Reviewed 29 July 2012

Matheran is known for its pollution-free pristine forests. Hotel Woodlands adds to this magic with its location far from the madding crowd of the railway station and market on the main road. True to its name, this beautiful old Parsi property is nestled right in the midst of the evergreen woods. The rooms are simple and elegant, the food – umm – finger-licking and unending in portions, and the hospitality very warm. At an average of Rs 1000 per day per person including food, it turns out to be most reasonable for a middle-level travel-enthusiast family wanting to spend a short leisurely and peaceful holiday. But most of all, what caught my eye and stole my heart was the small library in the office room. Between the long morning walks and horse-rides and chatting with my co-travelers, I found out time to read a Marquez novel. Thank You Woodlands!

very good location, budget hotel and helpful staff. Food was awesome, we really enjoyed the food. Hotel looks little old, though they need to renovate the rooms a little, but clean and peaceful. away from market and crowd, so no noise. Be sure carry some cash with you, as the ATM machine in matheran never works. Hotel management helped us in that as well, we had very little cash for shopping, so manager asked us to swipe in his machine and he gave us cash. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Value for Money Hotel. Food is better than Excellent. Service is very good. Staff Co-operative. Necessary Amenities available like Carrom, Badminton, TT and also playing area for small children. Nice Location about 15 minutes from the Railway Station and adjacent to the railway track. Rooms are good both A/C & Non A/C. Cleanliness has been maintained though being a hotel in the woods which is also a plus point.
All in All a Very good Family Budget hotel to stay with 4/5 rating..

There are couple of things about the hotel. Good things first [1] Location is good . Away from market inside the woods so basically away from crowd and noise, however incase u want noise and crowd then this may not be a good option. [2] Food is good simple and tasty ... In terms of luxury , please don't expect anything fancy, the rooms are neat and clean without AC (but with air coolers) , however very small in comparison to another hotel nearby ( there is a hotel - Cecil just opposite woodland which had really huge rooms - and by huge i mean really huge rooms and bathrooms) ... The hotel staff is very nice and helpfull ... esp Unni and Raju.. Nothing bad about the hotel. We went during June 2012 when it was raining. Matheran is very beautiful during rains..

This was the first time ever I was having such an awesome experience with my wife. Food here is very tasty. The staffs are very humble and friendly.
As far as the location is concerned, it is very nature friendly.

I really had a great stay here, looking forward for more stay here soon :)
