“Excellent Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

I had recently been for a couple of days to this hotel. Some quick points.

- Rooms are very clean as well as the carpet.
- Good amount of free space to walk alongwith so many fresh trees planted and very close to the forested area makes the view extremely beautiful.
- Sports Activities are good for amateurs and as well as for kids.
- The most important part of any trip is the food which is just superb and had it been a little closer to Mumbai would travel for the tandoori, khaman, dal, hara kabab etc.
- Room service is very fast.
- We were very late for the lunch but the two waiters serving four of us :P is too much. Even an attendant keeps track of that Monkeys do not come anywhere closer to the rooms or the dining area.
- Being a weekend we also had a nice magical show and discotheque.

Finally the biggest consideration is the cost which is very moderate for such a good place. Have been to the other good names like Richi rich now adamo and kumar plaza previously which look good but service is way too slow.

Room Tip: Choose the room closer to the dining area :)

We stayed during Christmas eve for a night or two and loved it. They are undergoing construction and hence during the day there would be some noise but we didn't stay much inside so didn't affect us much. They do have a few activities planned in the night but on the whole it is a nice place to come stay for a few nights.

Being a little away (~ 5-10 mins walk) from the market ensures it is away from the whole bustle and the noise but close enough to a few southern points.

Room Tip: Try and get a poolside room to get easier access. These rooms are also closer to the buffet / eating...

We stayed here during christmas time (i.e. 24th Dec 2012 to 26th Dec 2012). It was a very good experience staying at Westend Hotel. Had a great time in Matheran, it was refreshing.
Room provided had a good view and the rooms and bathrooms were clean and it was very relaxing stay.
Excellent food, both veg and non-veg (Breakfast, Lunch & dinner) and the pool side buffet made the food more enjoyable. Also there were some activities in the evening like magic show and the chrismas party was also good.
There were some other activities like games which elders as well as childern enjoyed playing togather eg. carrom, table tennis & badminton.
Overall had a great time. Good value for money.

We stayed here for three days 27,28, 29 Dec 2012. Although we were only two, considering the availability of rooms at year-end, we were offered a bigger room big enough for 6+people at no extra cost. We enjoyed our stay there and will recommend this hotel to everyone. Below are positive and some negative things we observed

** Pros-
- Value for money
- Good hospitality
- Very good veg food
- Excellent location. You can just walk to many of the popular Matheran points
- 10 mins walk to market. Enough to reach by walk while still away from crowd/noise
- Various shows/programs were arranged in the evening. Good entertainment.

** Cons-
- No sound-proof rooms. My neighbor complained me of TV sound at night. We also were able to hear outside noise
- Rooms/bathrooms are a little old looking
- Some rooms had older TVs. Unfortunately ours had an old, bulky and noisy one.

Had a good experience staying here. Food was good. Good breakfast , lunch and dinner. Lunch and dinner food was bit spicy, but tasty. Hotel should have more options for ordering in room service. We tried few things , but they were unavailable. However, whatever ordered was delivered in time and was up to the mark.
Swimming pool is nice and looked clean.
Its bit away from market place ,so its quiet around. Still Market is at walking distance.
Recommended.

We were staying at holiday home behind this hotel in Matheran. On our last day, we thought of shifting to this Hotel. There were quite a few rooms available and they allowed us to choose what ever room we want.

Nice & refreshing lemon ice tea was offered on arrival. The rooms were clean and nicely done. We requested for more blankets and pillows and they were promptly provided. The peak season was yet to begun and we went there on the weekday so the hotel was not very busy. The manager use to check with us what would we like for our Lunch and Dinner – which was nice.

The food was great … we were served near the pool area and nice hot food was served and lot of options were on offer.

It was all worth the money and we surely liked the hotel.

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
