5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Visited Matheran last month on marriage anniversary. Property is well maintained. Staff was responsive. Enjoyed live music program with delicious dinner. They have bar also. Best part was disco. Danced after a long time, baiscally to give company to wife. Had mouth watering Jalabies in breakfast and sweet mava kachori in lunch. Food quality and taste was excellent. Enjoyed horse riding next day. Overall paisa vasool. Recommended to all.

Good Food.
Packages not very expensive.
Service Very Good.
Maintenance is Average.
Location is too Far and after a walk from Parking to Hotel to climb the hotel hill is worse.
Staff is very friendly.
Serene Quiet Ambiance.

Room Tip: Ask for Rooms near Restaurant or Reception.

Matheran itself is very beautiful and full of greenery. The Byke hotel has enhanced it by keeping the same look of its property. It is huge property. But one has to walk a lot to reach the rooms. The rooms are too far from the entrance, and one has to climb a lot of stairs too. The pool and dining area (open dining) are really nice. The rooms were a huge let down. Not at all clean and appealing. They were even stinking. Same was with the bathrooms. The lighting in the rooms too was not up to the mark. For the amount that they charge, the rooms are not worth it.
The food is good. The garden, swimming pool and games area etc are very nice. Big groups can really make the most of this property. On the whole if you are willing to overlook the rooms ambience and cleanliness, then this is a nice property in matheran.

Room Tip: Those facing the pool

the byke was a surprise for my family as we found it extremely matching our taste. wt u want in a vacation- rain dance, pool, disco, spa----they have it all. Food served is totally vegetarian n they have a nice cook. It is one of the oldest heritage property of matheran. It is near sherlotte lake so u cn enjoy evening walks to lake easily.

Room Tip: Reach at matheran before 9 pm to avoid walking on foot.

Well the experience started the moment we landed. My friend Siddhartha had booked a room for 3 guys at their Mumbai Office for Rs.15K (2N), but the reception charged us Rs.17K. We agreed, one because it was around 10:00 in the night and we sort of liked the place.

We were quite impressed by the place but were equally taken aback with the bad service. People were missing two important facets of the service industry - courtesy and an urge to provide fine service. To make things worse, there was a cockroach found in one of the desserts!! One of the groups from Mumbai who had a sizeable Jain population was so aghast that they lodged a police complaint. Neither the owner nor the manager were relenting or apologetic.

Its quite overpriced for the place, but had they provided good service, it would be worthwhile.
