“Gujrati Authentic unlimited thali with best service & courteous staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Bombay view hotel is managed by Mr.Gulab Bhai. This is an heritage property & nicely maintained with beautiful rooms, dining hall & Garden. The best thing which will attract people is its view. Food is traditional gujrati thali. The way they serve. The taste of food is just awesome. We visit every year, Bombay view is full of peace & comfort. Its just 2 minutes from paymaster's park.

Stayed in Bombay View Hotel for one night (22-23 Dec 2012). Found the hotel through their staff soliciting customers near Railway Station (Market area). On return from Matheran, was surprised to find this categorized in "B&B Inns". It is a proper hotel.

Pros:
1. Plenty outdoor space. Has lots of hammocks, easy swings to just lounge around. (Normally such properties have only couple of such installations but this hotel has plenty to take care of most guests).
2. Close to view points on the west side of Matheran (i.e. Echo point, Louisia Pt., Lake Charlotte)
3. Away from the din of main market, does not overlook any garbage dump or ungainly roof-tops of other hotels
4. Pretty delicious food. Completely veg. Since hotel is away from main market, it is imperative that food quality is good since one will have no other option nearby.
5. Space for some sports like frisbee, badminton, TT

Cons:
There aren't any cons. Since hotel is away from main market; so you need to plan your trip around Matheran such that you can minimize walking distances.

Cost:
I (traveling as couple) negotiated for 1,500/- a single night (on a weekend near Christmas). Included evening tea, dinner, breakfast. We were late in arriving at the place, so I suppose lunch on day of arrival could also have been part of the package.

Recommend especially to young people who are traveling in a group since the place affords enough space for some activities. May not work well if you have elderly people with you since reaching hotel from market itself will make you walk a lot.

Room Tip: The hotel has some rooms which can accommodate 6-8 people easily. If you are a big family, you can t...

I frequently travel to matheran for some change from hectic life & Bombay view hotel is the place were I stay for peaceful weekend. Food quality is good. Hotel rooms are decent. Hotel staff is quite friendly. Every time I come here there is some or the other person of hotel staff to receive us at station. Their menu during breakfast, lunch & dinner is always different. They believe in serving hot. Place is quite peaceful. It is quite reasonable. Every penny spent here is worth.

This hotel has very reasonable charges for the rooms. The room was good and well decorated. the staff were extremely courteous and friendly and gave good advice. I did not notice that I was only eating vegetarian food here, being a meat eating westerner, it was so delicious. A good breakfast was included in the room rate.

Good Value for Money place to stay at Matheran, the food quality was superb, and the property is cool, natural.. The only drawback, property is very far from the market and railwaystation. Travelling to and fro to the hotel is a pain.

Good property to go and just relax

I just had a wonderful experience of staying in Hotel Bombay View. We both (me n my wife/ life) will never forget those four days which we had spent in this hotel. It was our Honeymoon. When we decided to go to Matheran, almost all of my friends n relatives made a fun of us for such a boaring & old fashioned decision. But, after enjoying those four days, we are pleased to say that our's was a perfect decision.
What to say about Hotel Bombay View? It is just a paradise on earth. The location, the services, the food, the hospitality n last but not the least the Rate, everything is just fantastic. Even though it is a hotel or resort, the behaviour of the managment was homly. The food quality was the best.
Away from the noice n crowed, situated in green valleys, it is just a paradice. Every one must have this experience at least once in a life. We are definately going to have it again.

If you are a vegetarian and are looking to take the extended family out for a weekend, this could be the place for you. Simple, healthy vegetarian fare - the room price includes a hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The hotel is located well away from the crazy crowds of the main marketplace - it's about a 12-minute walk, so not too much of a hike either. It could be a little tricky to find the place the first time as the signs are not very helpful. Just call the manager and he'll direct you.
This is definitely not a place for a romantic getaway or if you're looking for a plush room and some pampering. It's a basic, no-frills place, but can be a fun outing for a large group. And remember, they only serve vegetarian food.
