It's a great hotel, probably one of the oldest in matheran. The rooms are okay. Could have been cleaner. And yes keep in mind they don't have toothpaste in the room so make sure you carry it with you if you choose to stay there! But by far the best thing about our stay was the food. It was one of the best vegetarian food I had. You can tell they make it with special care. And you can't beat the variety as well.Location wise it's about 20 mins walk from the train station so if you plan to walk there then pack light.
