It is one of the oldest hotels in Matheran and if you are a nature-lover, this is one place you can stay. Another good thing is that the lodging is very cheap. Do not expect any additional facilities but the rooms are heavenly spacious and can easily accomodate 4. The food is not so great so one can choose to... More

We stayed at hotel Cecil between 27th and 29th Nov. It was a pleasant stay. The ambience and location of the hotel though far from the market is a walkable distance. It provides for a more closer to nature experience. The food offers great value for money. The hotel is a good place for a family vacation. It also offers... More

Hotel is far from the main market. If you would like to stay in a calm and more natural environment, this place is good. Rooms are not very good. Service is average. Food is excellent. Staff is friendly.

Rooms are not clean at all, you can spot spider net here and there inside room. Bed, pillows, towels.. not even a single thing is properly clean. Food is... More

Real extravaganza. Loved the beauty around. Food was tasty. Service is good. The heritage itself is a plus point. Though there is no AC, you get to feel the real coolness of natural air. If you looking for a change from city life, this is it.
