This is my first post on TripAdvisor and Ive decided to start with a review on my favourite hotel- Lords Central at Matheran.
In October 2013, it was my third visit to the hotel in the past 7 years and it only gets better.
If you are a person who loves the old world charm, good Parsi food, and warm people around, this is the place for you. The Lords family makes you feel just at home.
The first recommendation I would give is that opt for a valley side or facing room- we always stay in room 10 which gives a brilliant view of the valley. The rooms are not 5-star but very clean. They have a central hall, which has a old piano and television, where the food is served.
The food in included for in the stay and the Lords kitchen which is personally monitored by the owners, is amazing. They will feed you till you cant eat anymore. They have unlimited buffets - that include the 5-course soups to deserts. I personally love their roast chicken, dhansak and fried local eel fish.
The hotel has a swimming pool, which is very well maintained, just enough for a dip.
I have strongly recommended this hotel to people who are looking for a quiet vacation at Matheran away from the mad-crowd.
Rooms facing the valley are better- especially room 10
