We went to Matheran on a long weekend (1) to get away (2) our anniv was around the corner. We chose Byke after reading a few reviews and after getting first hand inputs from a friend. Over all we were not dissapointed.
The rooms were OK - a reminder of what may have been an illustrious past. But they were clean. Room service did not change the bedsheets every day, but they changed the towels. The food was great. The evening entertainment programs were the highlight. Very relaxing. My family had a great time.
Matheran itself is very beautiful and serene. Must see/do - early morning sunrise, A horse safari and some adventure sports at Honeymoon Point/ Louisa Point.
