In our last India trip, we wanted to go to Matheran with my parents and family. As we needed 3 double rooms, we were trying to find availability while not compromising on quality. Royal turned out to be a huge huge surprise (pleasantly) as it not only was conveniently located, but had fantastic rooms and their staff's service was way... More

They don’t have intercoms to contact reception or housekeeping. You have to press bell for drinking water, tea. All rooms have a common gallery. So if any one... More

It was... More
