Excellent Hotel to stay in all Matheran. Went to couple of hotels to check the rooms (will not name any of them) but found the property of Usha Ascot to be excellent. The food is absolutely awesome. Very well maintained property.

This is a very nice family style resort in Matheran. The property is pretty much in the village, so not more than 5ish minutes after the train station. The rooms and arranged around a central pool and where breakfast and dinner is also served. We stayed in one of the renovated rooms, which was modern, clean, and up to snuff. Some of the older rooms are more run down. The staff at this hotel, from the owner to the manager to the front desk staff to the people who come to the rooms, are uniformly friendly and helpful. Indeed, they truly make it feel like the family hotel it is. Food is above average. Over a 3 day stay, they varied the menu so no repeats. It's Gujarati vegetarian and excellent as such. The only not complaint but fact is that it is noisy. Because everything is arranged around the pool when they being their evening program of music or games it makes quite a racket. Between 5 and 10 pm this does detract from the peace. At the same time, you get used to it, and if you have kids they'll love it. An excellent choice for Matheran. Will surely find myself here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated rooms.

We spent two nights here, a small group of college friends, coming back to Matheran after some 25 years. It was as perfect a getaway as we could have hoped for. Our rooms, on the left side of the pool coming down from reception, were very clean and extremely comfortable. Lots of energy around the poolside dinner helped along with a reasonably talented single man band! Many "view points" are within a 20 minute walk from the hotel, and the motor-transport free Matheran is a walkers' paradise. And the Guju thali for lunch is just what you need to quench the appetite you work up with those looong walks. Be watchful for the monkeys though...they are absolutely alert to drop down from the trees and snatch away your precious food packets.....we lost a whole box of pan to the beasts in an unguarded moment. Definitely intend going back here for a vacation again.

Room Tip: If you value quiet, and are just a couple travelling, choose the deluxe rooms facing outside (non-po...

We spent two nights in Matheran which was a happy time indeed. The hotel is very nice, and the cental area around the pool was a delight (even with the monkeys who stole my DIet COke bottle!)
The food was very good, especially the thali lunch served in the dining room, while I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea - cake, biscuits and coffee by the pool. The room was nice with views and the service was terrrific (cleaning, getting the tv working properly, laundry etc)

Room Tip: just be carefull of monkeys in the gardens and it's quite a walk from the station but interes...

My husband and I stayed in Usha Ascot over Christmas 2013, for 3 nights. We were pleased with the friendliness and warmth of the staff, especially the manager. The food is also good, especially the lunch which turned out to be a sumptuous gujarati thali. Though we walked over to Lords Central for Christmas lunch - a gujarati thali no matter how good doesn't work for Xmas - we didn't miss non veg much. The rooms are clean and well furnished, but beware of the monkeys lurking around, so forget about opening the windows.
The only trouble we had was that guests here usually travel in large groups so it can get quite unsettling for couples who looking for peace and quiet. And the evening entertainment - a ghazal night - can get a tad monotonous if you're spending more than a couple of nights. All in all, recommended for a pleasant stay if you have a tolerance for a lil cacophony.

We had no complaints about this hotel. The location, service, cleanliness, room were all great. The food was average though, except for the night that some regular NRI visitors were in town and they made some special food.

The property is good. Food is decent. However, rooms are not upto the mark. The rooms offered to us (No View rooms) initially were damp and we asked for a change immediately. We had to upgrade to finally get a decent room.

The pool setting for dinner is good. They have some light gazals going on (same gazals everyday it seems).

Room Tip: The No View rooms are really bad. There is a wall right out side the room. Also the rooms are damp a...
