Usha Ascot is without any doubts the best resort in Matheran.
I have been to Matheran before. Our weekend trip to Matheran this time was surely better than the earlier ones thanks to the beautiful monsoon. No doubt monsoon is much better at the hill stations.
This resort is towards the South of the main market. Although, it is 0.5kms farther away from the market, the location is much better compared to other hotels near the market. There are number of tourist points quite walkable from Usha.
The food is truly amazing! Wide array of choices for breakfast, Gujarati thali (although fixed items but plenty to eat) for lunch, and North Indian/Chinese/Italian buffet for dinner.
Live music during weekends makes it more fun!
Activities/amenities inside the resort are also quite good - swimming pool, badminton court, table tennis, pool, carom, etc. Ofcourse, when you are in Matheran, you have to be outdoors! But, for some reason such as rain, you are stuck inside the resort - you won't get bored for a single minute!
The room itself is little inferior compared to other facilities of the hotel. E.g., the towels at first were not so clear; however, they were changed immediately when we asked the house keeping. The TV was not working properly, but we didn't care much! After all, Matheran is the only hill station of India with no vehicles! So get the best out your time while you are there! The bed was quite comfortable. The staff is very friendly.
To summarize - Usha Ascot is definitely one of the better resorts of Matheran.
Tip: Monsoon package from cleartrip.com was cheaper than the one from hotel itself!
