I had a very good experience of this hotel property. rooms, food and even the hospitality is very good. Just at the end of the market area this hotel is a very good property to spend your holidays especially in weekends and public holidays.

the hotel is not far from railway station and close to important places like echo point, charlotte lake, aleaxander pt. food is good. rooms were clean and newly done. service is also good. Only beware of the monkeys which create nuisance. And i had a bad experience as it harmed my child in the room. Rest is fine.

I would recommend this property to stay at Matheran, although i haven't stayed any where else to do a comparison. This property is about 15 minutes walk from the station where toy train leaves you. It's difficult to find this property unless you ask locals who are very helpful
This property is right in the middle of nature and hence offers lots of greenery and fresh air. The rooms are large and well lit. Food served was very good and a highlight of the hospitality showered by the hotel. The property organizes special evening programs like magic show, DJ night etc since there is little that you can do in Matheran after the sun sets. I would recommend you carry your own toiletries when you visit as the hotel offers pretty basic sachets. The only other thing which could be better was the frequency of cleaning the rooms.
They have a nice aesthetic pool adjacent to which the food is served.
The staff is really helpful too.

Leave your worries back at your home and enter your home in the heaven "Matheran".
What more can I say? But still to just elaborate, have been staying at Westend since 2009 almost twice a year. The Rooms are excellent and clean. The food is fantastic quite a variety though can be a bit spicy or oily sometimes. The entire resort has been excellently developed keeping in mind the nature. The forest cover has been kept intact. The swimming pool a new addition is really beautiful and very well managed. The manager Mr Shailendra Chaphekar and the owner Mr Ahmed have just done a fantastic job. Kudos to you guys. And thanks for all the hospitality we get every time. Looking forward to a visit coming monsoons may be.

this was first visit to westend, i normally have been visiting matheran for past 15 years now. Westend took me by surprise with its room, service and most important the hospitality. Great time spent within a limited budget, real value for money. The manager shailendra was of real help, i could see him personally executing the team to see that all guests are comfortable. the food covered your picnic motto but did not spoil your appetite. I recommend this hotel in matheran as a ardent traveller to matheran. They also this tent room concept which is a revelation in itself.

Had been here for 2 days & thoroughly enjoyed the stay. good food with a lot of variety in the buffet system. Rooms were really really clean & the staff & service is good. . Swimming pool is well mantained. If you are looking for a good weekend getaway with your family then Westend is the place to be.

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
