Peace, Privacy, Food, Entertainment and service...all top notch. Though booking experience with clear trip was very poor. If you want to reconnect with nature and recharge ur soul from the daily hustle of city life, this is the best place just a step away.

Cecil is located in highly picturesque place with great view. Many points are very close by and at walking distance from the hotel. The service is highly excellent and owner personally looks after everything. Food is authentic Indian. Only problem is the quality of washrooms.

The hotel is one of the worst hotels I have seen since I started family vacations. Few of the points are as below: 1. There is no room service, if you want bed tea, either you will have to go to dining room to bring tea yourself or look for some staff to bring it for you. 2. They say... More

It is one of the oldest hotels in Matheran and if you are a nature-lover, this is one place you can stay. Another good thing is that the lodging is very cheap. Do not expect any additional facilities but the rooms are heavenly spacious and can easily accomodate 4. The food is not so great so one can choose to... More

We stayed at hotel Cecil between 27th and 29th Nov. It was a pleasant stay. The ambience and location of the hotel though far from the market is a walkable distance. It provides for a more closer to nature experience. The food offers great value for money. The hotel is a good place for a family vacation. It also offers... More
