Reviewed August 31, 2010

We were two couples which went for a week-end trip.

Hotel is located at a very good place with a quiet peaceful surroundings and at the same time 2 minutes from the main market. The hotel is quite big and built in a open space. Architectural pattern resembles the old heritage.

We booked the super-deluxe rooms. Rooms are quite spacious and not at all conjusted. Food was very good.

Staff were very much co-operative and friendly.

Was there during 2010 new year .. every night there was a special dinner plus events/programmes going on to celebrate the new year.. both for kids, families and elders. The rooms are OK, if you are looking for a lot of luxury this is not the place but a decent clean place, lots of trees, garden, and quiet atmosphere is what it gives you. The restaurant is also quite good.

The hotel is one of the oldest in Matheran and that gives it a heritage look. Having said that, its well maintained and clean. Rooms are nice and clean, and the staff is just a ring away, always at your service.

The food is so delicious that I overate almost all my meals.

Proximity to the market is another plus point.

Overall, a great place to stay in.

it's one of the oldest hotel in Matheran , best for foodies as Gujrati Thali is simply delicious , rooms are good enough to accommodate a family of four , indoor \ outdoor games , magician's tricks , swimmin pool , jacuzi are more than enough to entertain whole family . It's near railway station & market area of Matheran .You can get Horses here for sightseeing at reasonable rates . The staff is very co-operative , it's green hotel !

We had booked at Regal Hotel in July last year.

The location is wonderful and the hotel staff were very helpful with everything. Stayed overnight and most of the time was spent outside in Matheran exploring the wonderful locations and scenic points.

The rooms were alright, but I can really complain at the price I got them for! The food was bundled along with the room charges and being a Gujarati place it was Gujarati cuisine. I am not a big fan of the cuisine and chose to ate out most of the time! Wish they had room offers with an option where the food is not bundled.

Check Makemytrip and Cleartrip for good offers at this hotel! Matheran is lovely!

I have stayed at quite a few places in Matheran, but if you are a family with kids then Regal hotel is perfect.

Compared to some other 3-star hotels, the rooms and other facilities in Regal are not as good but the property itself is wonderful. My son had a great time out in the open. The pool was the best feature. My son spent about 6-8 hours in the pool for all the 3 days that we were there.

The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Although alcohol is not served in the hotel, we did not have a problem as we would just request any of the room service guys and they would get it directly from the market. In case of beer they even store it for you so you can get it whenever you want.
Although we are mostly non-vegetarians we were not at all disappointed with the food which was awesome, pure-veg mostly Gujarati food. There was a lot of choice in the dinner buffet with Mexican and Italian veg dishes thrown in for good measure. We did not eat out at all for all the 3 days that we were there.

The management could look into improving the rooms and the the facilities provided in the rooms. The pillows are too hard for comfort and the AC is a relic from pre-historic times. The water pressure is not good enough for taking a decent shower but it could be just the room that we stayed in (101).

All in all, it is a great place to chill out, relax and generally do nothing. I would recommend it to families with kids. For couples I would recommend something on the lines of Usha Ascot.
