One good thing about the hotel is that its not in the market place. It give one a real feeling of Matheran forest as its surrounded by dense forest.
The reason for choosing this place was because it serves Non-veg which is limits us to only a few options. As the hotel was well occupied on the day of our visit, we enjoyed good buffet meals. They have a small swimming pool but it was too cold so could not really enjoy it.
We got good rates as this was an off-season.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Westend Hotel with 29 cottages and 2 tents are brimming with old world charm, what with their beautiful old British-style preserved architecture and spacious verandas. From the minute you step in, you almost wonder if such hotels exist. And to think, its mere 2 hours away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Tucked away in the forest, all you will see are the tree tops and hear only the sounds of the forest. The beautiful Lake Charlotte is just 10 minutes away as is the main bazaar and a few of the famous viewpoints. The sole aim of the hotel is to make you relax. Trek through the forest, amble along the natural red mud paths, take a horse ride to the various tourist attractions, play the numerous indoor-outdoor games, soak in the silence or just laze on the hammocks, there's enough and more to keep you busy for as long as your stay. And whatever you choose to do, you'll certainly leave with a rejuvenated mind. ... more less
