“Value for Money (only if you dont book using travel vacanza)”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

Beside the excellent views that Matheran has to offer the Royal Hotel was at first impression very disappointing. The plaster on the ceiling and walls was coming off and the bed was damp and the rooms were very old. Swimming pool is slightly bigger than a bath tub! I realized later that I got a bad deal since I booked it using travelvacanza.com which cheated me and priced the room for 1000 Rs. more. My advice: never use travel vacanza to book any hotel. Book this hotel directly.

The upside of the hotel was food. It was excellent and my friends decided not to eat outside food as we would miss great food in our hotel. It's a nice budget hotel and they are getting new rooms renovated. I would definitely stay here again.

It is a good hotel with very less price. Location is very nearer to Railway Station so that the cost of transport can also be saved which is very high in matheran. Food is average. The property needs to be renovated. However overall it is a good hotel

We booked this hotel for our 3 days stay in Matheran

We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Price-wise it was ok compare to other Hotels in seasons.

It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this small family-run hotel. The owners and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. In the afternoon, the staff would bring out snacks and coffee for guests who had opted to spend the day in the shade of the palm trees in the little garden. At no charge.

This said, there is nothing wrong with the facilities. The room we had was spacious and pretty, the breakfast is good and the distance to the beach is limited. The garden may be small, but it’s a relaxing and quiet place – one where you really don’t mind spending an afternoon or two with a good book. We like the Gujarati food of the hotel.

We stayed with family at this Hotel at Matheran during April 2011. Hotel is conveniently located near to matheran main market and railway station area and central location for all nearby mountain view points. We liked the vegetarian food served at the Hotel and its can be called value for money hotel.
They have small functional swimming pool, adjoining resting place for elders and small place for childern play area too wtih badminiton facility.TT board was non functional. On sataurday they organised a magic show too. Sleeping bed was not too good, although shower functioned well. Although i am not completely satisfied due to sleeping bed, food was very nice with good serving staff and location was very convenient.

We had done booking through Bhagyashree Travels in Pune about couple of months in advance.
Hotel is nicely located. Just next to the market yet very quiet & serene. Matheran - since vehicles are not allowed - this place is just at 2 minutes walk from the Railway Station.
Plenty of open space is available. One can play Badminton, TT, Carrom, Chess. Swimming Pool is available (is a small one; but OK). Electronic / Video Games are available.
Rooms - OK to Avg.
Service - OK.

Dining (Lunch / Dinner) is also available - but only Gujarati Thali is served (unlimited) - no other options.
However, proximity to the market is very much useful. One can just go to the market have their own choice of food - from Pav Bhaji to Chinese to North Indian...

definitely Value For Money...!
