I had been trying to book this place since a while and finally got a chance to go here.. and its definitely worth the wait. Although i went here in the summers which made it hot during the day, evenings are cool and pleasant given the elevation to sea level. Monsoon and winters would be ideal to visit this place... More

We absolutely loved the place. By-gone memories of staying in pre-era house. You wake up to the chirping of the birds. The food was excellent. Shankar bhai was very pleasant, kind, friendly and helpful. Simple but hygienic food is served,

We went as a group of 4 for 1 night. I had read Trip advisor reviews before coming and thought we would manage easily. We are all used to budget accommodation and living without creature comforts. However, what was in store for us was something none of us expected. We liked the picturesque setting and the helpful staff but sad... More

Pros - secluded location in the middle of the forest - no connectivity (could be a con depending on your requirements) - different experience with the heritage setting - Nice long walk upto one tree hill point, where it is located (again could be a con depending on whether you enjoy hiking) - You can pay the caretakers to get...

I am the kind of person who had lost hope of finding good places for a lazy weekend near Bombay. Fleetwood, or Salmona as the locals call it, gave me hope. This property is a very beautiful bungalow far away from the usually crowded and cliched Matheran. The walk is about 6-7 kms from the market but the quaint nature... More

I think this place makes sense if you are in a large group, which we were. We took the big bungalow and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place is a bit of a walk from the station and can be difficult to figure out where it is exactly, tip: just keep asking for one tree hill, which it is really... More

We went as a couple to Fleetwood House for one night as a getaway from Bombay. We paid Rs. 5500 for one night, all included: breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The location is nice, next to one of the best view point in Matheran: One Tree Hill Point (breath taking view). Although you need to walk about 30-45min from... More

We had an enjoyable stay however there are some minor issues which if taken care off could make the stay even more enjoyable: - The bathrooms have geysers but do not work. However the caretakers very smilingly provided heated water but this off course takes long time especially when the wood (used to heat) has moisture due to the rains.... More

I have personally renamed it as the ‘Fleecewood Bungalow.’ I am going to be sharing only facts in this review- and not my personal opinions (You probably know my opinion by the new name I just gave it!). We paid Rs 5500 for a couple inclusive of food for one room, one night. And here are my observations. 1) Location:... More

We, a group of 20 family members with our pet dog, were at Fleetwood house for two nights on 23/24 Dec 12. We had chosen the place for its uniqueness and old world charm, knowing very well the presence of dogs and horses at this place. Let me assure you all that what has been written earlier by some people... More
