Me and my husband had visited The Byke in the month of February 2014, the super deluxe room provided to us just adjacent to the directors room was not at all value for money. Although the room was large in size the amenities were not good. The old air conditioner was noisy, the sofa cover was torn, which displeased us.... More

Good view, Excellent service, Nice rooms, good place to go with family as a lot of activities are designed to keep your family entertained all the time. But be careful of the monkeys as they are big menace. Only veg food is available.

The resort is one of the oldest in Matheran. It is actually built around the oldest bungalow in Matheran, a heritage structure. The check-in was quick. The service so too. The resort is huge. Rooms are large, but not necessarily airy. As also, since its nestled in loads of greenery, the rooms are devoid of natural light. Another flip side... More

Visited this hotel in the first week of Feb 2014. Booked this hotel especially because they provide accommodation for 1.5 days which is a boon if you are travelling from Pune/Mumbai. This place is situated away from the Matheran market so be ready to walk a bit (of course you can always go for a horse ride but if you... More
