The property is quite big but the same could have been maintained better. Rooms are big and can accommodate 6 adults easily but they are dimly lit and the walls are damp. The washroom is not that clean and at times smell too bad. Room service is poor. You may need to wait for an hour for a mug of... More

Brightlands used to be quite a lovely resort - however, like Matheran itself, it now caters to the absolute 'aam janta' (comon crowd) with very average facilities and an overall decline in standards. Avoid visiting during monsoons - the dank & damp walls, linen and furnishings reek! The staff is still quite friendly & helpful - making the best of... More

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
