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.

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

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
