Hotel Woodlands Matheran
Ranked #11 of 22 Hotels in Matheran
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Location: This resort is located 1km away from the main market. Because its not located in the middle of the market(like most other resorts) it is peaceful and relaxing. It is surrounded by forest from all the sides.

Positives: The service was amazing. The staff and management was courteous and accommodating. They showed me many rooms and asked me choose whichever I liked. The food(veg) was excellent. It was so good that I overate everyday. They do not make non-veg food but they offered to get it from the market for us. You can consume your own alcohol if you wish, they are hospitable enough to set up a table for you where ever you want. I guess they stock beer but not liquor.

Negatives: There were hardly any noticeable short coming. There was a bit of leakage in the bathroom tank, one of the bed made cranky sound sometimes. Bed sheets / towels were not very clean.

The negatives did not mattered much as I had an amazing experience. Overall the resort is well maintained.

Facilities: They have a badminton court, a TT table, a carom board and many swings.

Remember to keep a candle in the room as electricity goes off sometimes and keep a torch or something if you wish to walk around forest when it gets dark.

I would always stay here whenever I visit Matheran.

Room Tip: Take the cottage or the rooms on 1st floor facing the garden.

The hotel is owned by Parsi family but is being managed by South Indian manager. The place is neat and clean, well kept, and spacious. Staff is friendly and cooperative. Lunch was excellent, Dinner & breakfast could have been better! You can play table tennis, carrom board, badminton; plus they have many swings & slides for kids.
Matheran hotels are known to be expensive, no exception for this property. But this place is far better and hygienic than the Anand Ritzs and Rangoli retreats of Matheran!

Room Tip: try rooms on first floor they are spacious and have balcony.

Its is a perfect play to stay, away from the market. Such a calm and quiet place. The food is awesome and service is very good. Perfect place to stay away from all traffic and busy life of mumbai. But always beware of monkeys and its good if you can carry a stick when u go out for a walk.Thanks woodland for providing a wonderful stay.

My husband and myself stayed at Woodlands, Matheran last week and must may loved the place. They gave us a front-facing room (newly painted) and service was excellent. Like earlier times, reviews on TripAdvisor was really helpful to select the place. The place is calm and away from market noises. We loved the table-tennis and badminton facilities along with swings at the place. They have a mini-library as well :) The vegetarian food was really good.

The charges of the place varies in season and they generally have a two- nights stay package (for 2 people). We got a one and half day (1 night stay) package for Rs. 4150 inclusive of all facilities.

In Matheran, porters are available from Dasturi point to reach the hotel. Other option is to take the toy train till market place, then walk 10 mins to reach the hotel. Our porter Santosh also doubled as a guide and we had a good 3 hours guided tour with him covering five points.
