Don't look for any extravagent things here but courteous staff and very clean room/hotel. Simple place surrounded by dense forest and tucked away quietly away from the market place. Food is simple too, not very elaborate though.

Though initially the rates were bit low but we paid up nearly 1200-1500 rs [as it was rush weekend for them] and paid approx 6000 rupees for next 3 days including breakfast tea, coffee, unlimited indian lunch, evening tea and and...

We reached here with lot of expectation but overall experience was very disappointing.We booked through makemytrip and were forced to stay there for one night because of non refund. Rooms are big but the beds sheets are stinky, toned... More

Took two bungalow rooms for two days. Rooms were not ready till 2.00 pm. Even then found unclean toilets and really bad towels & bedsheets awaited us. We weren't sure how hygienic the blankets were. Had to change rooms and then got rooms where doors didn't close. Food is at best average. Absolutely no reason to pay the kind of... More

We had lot of expectation but it turned out the property is not renovated since ages. Badly maintained interiors, red water to drink as well as for usage, unclean sheets, dump smell in room, overall bad experience. It was not at all value for money. After visiting Matheran we found other property which more clean and nicely maintained in more... More

Very few places have the ability to help one travel back in time, Matheran is one such place. We were a group of 5 friends going to Matheran and when we selected Cecil, the amazing rates we got at Cleartrip was the key reason to opt in. But when we reached Cecil we were in for a beautiful surprise... the... More

The journey to this hotel started as a nightmare where after returning from market in evening there were no lights on the road, hence, we got a nice haunted experience. In addition, there were monkeys playing around in hotel and in room there were blank ants all over. To add to our woes the bathroom was not maintained at all,... More

The hotel was the only highlight of our trip which unfortunately wasnt as expected. Bit of a walk but very homely. Staff members are courteous. Rooms were spacious but the bathrooms were horrendous. Better carry Harpic, disinfectant and a scrubber with you. Limited tv viewing options of non hindi crowd. The highlight is the veg food they serve. Mixed crowd... More
