The Byke Heritage - Matheran
Ranked #8 of 21 Hotels in Matheran
Reviewed July 5, 2010

Had visited Byke resort this monsoon.....This is not at all worth of money....The facility provided is like any other average hotel in Matheran.....Rooms were pathetic with very very sad Bathrooms....Food was average but with limited spread.....Serving was not at all organised......Pool was very dirty and kids pool were not working only

It is very much evident that Management only focussing on collecting money from guests without any focus on service quality and hygiene factors

The Byke is one of the finest hotels I have ever visited in my life.
The Rooms and the surroundings are Super-Clean, the Service is excellent but the cost is a bit high. The hotel is located around 20minutes from Matheran Station. I would definately Recommend it all the people.

Great Food. Period.

It seems everything else was chargeable. They kept feeding us throughout the day which was good.

The Byke is one of the oldest hotels in Matheran. The hotel is well spaced out with lot of open space.

The rooms are pretty spacious with decent ameneties. The meals are bundled with the room charges and hence it reduces one's flexibility to go in for a-la-carte meals or eat outside.

The swimming pool was dirty and was poorly maintained. The rooms had a row house kind of a structure with an open balcony in frront of the room (good place to enjoy a drink in the evening)

The hotel landscaping was nice. But the rooms and furniture were not upto the mark. Definitely not like the pictures they show on their website. The TV was a nice LCD though.

Food was served near the 'poolside' but was not well organised. It was a crowded collection of plastic chairs and tables put together. There were too many monkeys in the hotel..Can't understand why someone would keep an outdoor-only eating arrangement with monkeys around. The monkeys would pounce on any of the dining tables and take food and run! I don't know about the others but this wasn't my idea of adventure! Even during other times, it was impossible to move around the hotel due to the monkey nuisance.

We went to Matheran on a long weekend (1) to get away (2) our anniv was around the corner. We chose Byke after reading a few reviews and after getting first hand inputs from a friend. Over all we were not dissapointed.
The rooms were OK - a reminder of what may have been an illustrious past. But they were clean. Room service did not change the bedsheets every day, but they changed the towels. The food was great. The evening entertainment programs were the highlight. Very relaxing. My family had a great time.

Matheran itself is very beautiful and serene. Must see/do - early morning sunrise, A horse safari and some adventure sports at Honeymoon Point/ Louisa Point.
