We had a really nice stay at the place. My second time here, came back after 10 years, a bit nostalgic as I write this review. Good rooms, freshly painted, awesome interiors and well maintained property. The coolies charge approx Rs 300 for 2 people's luggage from dasturi. If you are young makes sense to carry a bag pack and ride on a horse - Rs 500 for 2 people. They have a rate card in matheran for horse rides but they normally negotiate and take you for much lower the amount. The toy train is not working. You get share a taxi from Neral for.Rs 80 each. Good maruti breeza car pick up - Shivaji Shinde -9422594734 and 8446744696. The first 15 days in the rains should be avoided as it gets muddy. Really good food, the akhrot halwa was just fantastic. The service though prompt can be improved. Lunch timings are 12.30 to 2.30. If you go late for lunch you will have to dine on dirty table covers as they do not change the same. They have gujarati lunch. Tea and biscuits are complimentary in the evening from 4.30 to 5.30. They have a magic show in the evening for kids and housie. The ghazal night with dinner is amazing. As you sit below the stars listening to timeless songs in the soulful voice having dinner, you wish the night does not end. The dinner which is mostly punjabi and Chinese has too much maida in it. Who eats white bread in the era of whole wheat and multi grain bread. Makes no sense to cut costs on quality when the price that is being charged is fairly high. Monkeys are all over the place and it is impossible to even keep the window open. No mosquito nets either, though all the rooms are AC. Done up in modern way,the place is absolutely a must visit when in matheran.

Matheran is one of my favourite hill stations and Usha Ascot is my favourite hotel there. The reason we keep going there again and again is to hear the singer who sings bollywood songs and ghazals in the evening near the pool during dinner time. That is the perfect evening setting!!! Food is average, could do better.

I have visited this palace on 3rd 4th and 5th December for 2 nights package with my wife on their Executive Deluxe AC Room category. It was Swimming Pool view. Balcony attached. Room was nice & elegant. Staff was good & courteous. Room service was at par. Receptionist was Courteous. Since years they are claim to be best resort among 5 star category in Matheran. But i would rank them 3.5 out of 5.

Though its a very good ambience at reception area & outer & inner elevation of the hotel. But it seems they are not maintaining Garden Area at all. Understating Monkeys stroll all the time but they need to do alot for maintain landscaping looking at wide spread property to attract more customers to having feel like 5 star. Further they have not maintained their gaming area. its seems like we entered in to Khander Room while approaching towards games. Only Badminton Court seems good.

About Food (Particularly Lunch & Breakfast) is the attraction which i found was worth having. Pure Veg and widespread having multiple options and will not be repeated. At Dinner Paneer was very hard. Rest Sweet Verity was excellent.

I have requested them about i'll check out around 12.00 noon as it was monday & resort was quite empty. They have considered. Even i had my last lunch by paying extra on the last day.

Overall good experience.
