Brightlands is slightly towards the farther end of Matheran. Its a decent hotel which would fit your budget. The rooms are ok but smell of dampness specially during rains. The food is average too, wlthough the higlight of the place is its swimming pool and the bar beside it (although you can hardly call it a bar). Overall an average... More

You enter the hotel after a lot of pain (we walked), and you see shattered huts with discarded iron stuff all over. Reception welcomes you and allots the room. However the rooms are poorly ventilated and washrooms are dirty. Hot water is available only in the morning. Beds are hard. Walls are wet. Meals are served in buffet style which... More

Matheran is a nice place for people who loves nature and like to explore the bio diversity of nature, but not at all suitable for weekend leisure. Our stay at Brightland took away all the charm of the visit. Resort is very poorly maintained as compared to the tariff it charged.It seemed that it has not been renovated since its... More

Got things done quickly without much waiting.The linens were torn though. Activities for kids & family were good to keep the evenings occupied. Kids specially loved the place due to this. Swimming pool was... More

Returned today after 2 nights stay at Brightlands Resort with family. Got a decent deal after speaking to the brightlands office at Mumbai. This was better than the deals you can get on travel sites. The rooms are pretty ok but there is a room for improvement like layout etc. Room service is good and staff was helpful. Got things... More

Overall it was a good stay at Brightlands. Though initially we had to follow up with the reception to get the linens, etc changed. The condition of the rooms leaves much to be desired. Other than these 2 issues, we had a good service. The food was very good and room service decent.
