Hotel is bit far from main market (almost 1 km) but it is calm and quite and this is the only good thing that I have to tell about this hotel. 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.

Cecil is very near from the starting point (from where cars are not allowed). Very near to Matheran railway station too. Huge beds and rooms (a bit damp during the rains) - but that's okay considering Matheran has torrential rains and moisture can not be avoided. Great balcony and huge common dining area. Good wholesome food (not fancy but nutritious).

Location Of THE Hotel Was Good.Service Provided By The Staff was also satisfactory.Amenities provided by the hotel were not adequate.There was no ward robe or clothes stand provided in the room.Maintenance and house keeping was very poor.It Is an outdated resort and lot of scope is there for its improvement.Room tariff does not COMMENSURATE WITH FACILITIES AND AMENITIES.

Pros: hotel exterior is full of greenry, rooms are simple but clean, food is very tasty, staff is very supportive Cons: hotel location is far away from most of the points, dont expect any modern amenities, adherence to schedule for food timings lagging a bit. Overall nice place to stay with your family and friends.

Location is awesome. But a slight expensive one. Great place to stay. Rooms are of good quality. Food is ok. Will definitely visit again. Nice place for a short vacation. Highlight is the location n size of the room which makes the hotel stand out as a unique one.

The location of the hotel is excellent inside the green and peace of nature, much away from the hustle and bustle of the daily monotony and the service provided by the hotel was also good. Room rent is also affordable
