“Average property”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

I went in to the resort with lot of expectations after having read the reviews on Trip advisor as well as considering that this is the 5th best property in Matheran. However, the experience was very average. Please do not go by the pictures on the web as the reality is a lot different. The swimming pool is much smaller in size than what it appears. The rooms too are not well maintaines, with the bed linen and towels appearing old and with stains. The walls and the overall decor seam to old, clumsy; something similar to what you can expect in a cheap lodge. The food is also average although they serve you a variety of dishes. My suggestion: please do not expect anything great from the property by reading the other reviews.

A very nice property to stay at Matheran. Good for family stay.. But the food served was just average, or below average..
The property is nice and well maintained. Location is apt and close to the market.
Nice activities being organised by the hotel to engage kids..
Kids would enjoy the place a lot.

Room Tip: Select pool side rooms for nice view

The hotel hasn't changed much since I was last here. The food is good and the staff is friendly. They are repairing the rooms and still haven't finished construction on the second floor.

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated rooms.

If you are expecting a quiet holiday, then this hotel is not the place to be in. It has many enjoyable activities for its guest and we 3 friends totally had a blast. Since the hotel has many activities, the noise is on from evening till late night, like I said if you are looking for a place for solitude and calm, you will find it only in the morning till afternoon. Also we were impressed that it had many fun games for the children as the kidzees were also seen enjoying themselves immensly. Hot water in the bathrooms is not available in the evening but the hotel were so nice and provided a bucket of hot water in the evening time and we truly appreciated it cause Matheran is a place with red mud and with horses as the only means of transportation, you have a lot of this red mud flying around, so after the sightseeing we are all red and dusty and it was so sweet of the management to provide us with hot water. In the evening times we had a blast with the games and won prizes. This time was also a great time for bonding with the other guests as well. The food was simply delicious not only the non vegetarian fare but also the veg food was awesome and the same goes for their desserts. The location of the hotel is walking distance from the train station yet away from the crowded section so one really enjoys the tranquility in the morning time. It also has a very clean swimming pool. Also I would like to appreciate their staff who were always very courteous and helpful and we felt safe staying there. Overall I would recommend this hotel to any one who would like to visit Matheran. I will definitely stay here on my next visit :)

Room Tip: Take rooms on the first floor on the left hand side as it offers a very good view below

i read few reviews of this hotel & made this mistake of booking for my anniversary.. it was ranked no 5 hotel in Matheran.. believe me, its one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in.. dirty lenins, stinking coridor/ public area, old look of the place, room furnishing (bed, cupboard etc) was without paint... none of the matteresses in hotel is straight.. thats the terrible part since you end with a sprain neck & spine & can not enjoy peaceful sleep... seems everything in the room is bought second hand from other hotel..ac didnt work (excuse is electricity not available, then why do you charge a premium for ac room); no hot water in room; food was huh.. lesser said better for them.. yes, staff was corteous.. open disco will not let you sleep uptill 11 pm.. hotel staff probably tried their best to keep guests entertained.. but idea of moving out from city to a quiet (spa) for a holiday was to gather some peace, but they keep playing music at high volume for some strange reasons whole day, then construction/ renovation in hotel will not let you live in peace.. i guess the good reviews mentioned here were either paid or some relatives/ friends of the owner as my experience was no where close to it.. its not a value for money for sure.. you pay 1000/- extra & better stay in other hotels near by.. if you are looking for a peaceful holiday, relaxing & enjoying beauty, then this is NOT a place..

They do justify their Slogan...."Come as Guest and Go as a Friend"

“We loved the warm hospitality & excellent support of staff, KIDs were so comfortable"

The rooms are spacious and comfortable with amenities.

NO DOUBT...The Food was Best..! Varieties of options for Breakfast / Lunch and Dinner.

Indoor games to keep you occupied with table-tennis, badminton, caroms, cards and cool Swimming Pool for Kid and Adults as well

The hotel crowd was decent, family will definitely NJOY.
Activities for KIDs with Pony Ride, Duck/Rabbit Feeing, Puppet Show, Drawing Completions
Kids also enjoy with the activities for Adults with Jungle Track, Camp Fire, and Site Seeing, Discotheque and other Group Activities

Over all a Grrreat Experience.....We will sure be back . !!”

An amazing place run by the previous owners of Brightlands 'Adi'. The rooms are spacious and comforatable with amenities. Breakfast is good - dinner excellent. Pool is good with water falls for both the young and not so young. A lot of indoor games and activities to keep yourself occupied. The 'disco' at nights is worth the time spent. Market is not too far - remember everything in Matheran is on horse back on on legs eleven!! Staff is very hospitable. The 'owners' are real great people to deal with. Overall worth the money spent.

Room Tip: Honey mooners book the rooms facing the woods - pool facing rooms could spoil your romantic settings...
