This was an impromptu trip to Matheran, my husband and I drove on our two-wheeler from Mumbai. It was a first long drive for us and great fun too! This resort is just near the parking and entry into Matheran, at Dasturi Naka, close to last point for vehicle entry. Being weekday, it wasn't crowded either. We chose this resort... More

The only goods thing about this resort is its location. There was no room service provided despite being mentioned at the reception. Stairway leading to the rooms was all dug up for repairs, it was very difficult to walk down with a small kid in arms. Beware: Not to keep the door open or walk around with eatables in hand,...

The resort have a variety of rooms ranging from Rs 1500 to Rs 5000 inclusive of taxes, and the conditions of rooms are good and the resort is located right in... More

Location: Advantage: Close to the Dasturi Naka Car parking. Disadvantage: 3 kms away from Matheran City and all major points to see. Toy train from the resort runs only from 9 AM to 5 PM. Hence you need to plan your trip to the Matheran city or hire horses (which are too costly, INR 300 per person one way). Food:... More

First of all, please note that if you take the Toy train from Neral Junction to Matheran to reach this place.Get off at AMAN LODGE.(name of the station). We didn't know, there was no information online so we wasted time going back and forth. Local people may even misguide so just get off at Aman lodge and from there it's... More

I stayed in the economy room. The room size is small but it was clean. The location is good. The mini train stop (that takes you to matheran market area) is very close. Complimentary breakfast was icing on the cake. To sum it up its cheap and safe.

Room: We stayed in the family room (paid for 2 extra beds at 300 each) - the rooms are spacious and clean Food: Awesome - they don't have tandoor but regular bread (roti/chapati) was no doubt excellent. Food was served a little slow but no complaints as it was freshly prepared and it does take a little while unless you... More

MTDC is an adequately maintained resort in Matheran. For around 1200 bucks for a room with a double bed and bathroom, this is as much a budget option as any other place. I've not stayed at any other lodge in Matheran but I believe most other resorts will charge almost twice for the same set of facilities. MTDC is close... More
