Reviewed March 26, 2011

Though I have not booked any accomadation before reaching this place the pittuwala recommended us Horseland Hotel and Mountain Spa. It is little away from market but a good hotel for the money we spent.
Children enjoed activities like Housie, DJ, Magic Show etc .
small swimming pool. average food.
we wanted two extend our stay for one more day but not a single room were availabe for third day due to christmas celebration.

General tip for booking in matheran: Never book and go. Matheran is a small and beautiful place. Just roam around, see hotels with interiors and then book. Just roaming in matheran is quite a nice experience. So reach early in matheran .... and in one to two hours you can see most of the nice hotels. Bargain hard. Internet photos and actual condition of hotel often do not match here.Dont worry about bookings being full unless Diwali/May/christmas week. DONT book a room if rates are more than 3000 for a couple including meals, unless you know that the hotel is very good. Try not to go on weekends........You will be surprised to see the rates so low. On weekends matheran is often crowdy.
Pros: Very affording..........but must bargain for that! Never in any season book the room at more than 2500 Rs. (at present rate) inclusive of all meals. At non-weekdays can get booking at 1000-1200! But BARGAIN HARD. Also have nice clean swimming pool.
Cons: Very very average food. Poor air conditioning. Rooms are damp. (Ask for room change). Average interiors. In fact a proprer AVERAGE hotel!

Went with my wife and booked a AC deluxe room for a weekend vacation .. There are cracks in the ceilings and no toiletries in the restroom ....The AC was a waste as there were very frequent power cuts ......Liquor has to be called from outside ...The food was Ok ok ......typical buffet .....the room phone was making too much of noise .....u have to call for the house-keeping for cleaning the room ...Pathetic stay and no value for money .....cant call for something other than the scheduled Bf/Lunch and dinner ....

We celebratedour first anniversary here and we are so grateful that we chose this hotel...
It was a wonderful stay for us for 2 nights and it was well balanced with fun activities like Housie, DJ, CampFire, Magic Show.. and we could also make out great leisure time..
Food was good however the rooms could have been better..
The swimming pool was a pleasure and we also took the Royal massage..

All in all.. 4 STARS!!!

After the tiring walk from the Dasturi car park to the Horseland hotel, we were shown 2 rooms by the hotel attendants. The first room was a deluxe room which was near the swimming pool. The other room was a bamboo house which had all amenities( AC/TV etc) but somehow we liked the first room better.
The staff at the reception were very courteous and gave us a good deal for our 2 nights stay. The best part of this hotel is that all meals(veg/non veg) are provided by the hotel.
The quality of the food was very good and we enjoyed most of the meals there.

There are many inhouse activities arranged by the hotel like Karaoke singing, Housie, picnics,jugglery shows etc which keeps the guests occupied.

There are also different games like carrom, chess, Table tennis, badminton etc to keep the guests occupied.

Our main reason to choose this resort was because of the "Mountain Spa" wherein we thought that we could relax with some massages. However we were very dissapointed with the organisation of the spa. They had a very fancy menu with many massages being listed, but when we started enquiring about them, we found out that most of the services were not available. For Example.. Ayurvedic massage was not available as the concerned masseur was on leave...etc... We finally settled with whatever was available.
Finally after many follow ups and reminders, we did get our massage which was quite good.

There is a swimming pool with a mini waterfall but the water was not heated and too cold to enjoy.

There are many monkeys around the place and you need to be careful to keep your rooms closed at all times, be careful while carrying/eating eatables in the open.

There are many guides at the reception and at the entrance of the hotel who will ask you to book horses for sightseeing trips around Matheran. Need to negotiate properly with them and agree on a good price as they usually quote exorbitant prices.

It was a wonderfull experience. Enjoyed good food in mid of the naughty monkeys, ducks & horses. It was a good learning for my daughter. most amazing thing about this place is the red mud all over the hill station. The hotel staff is pleasing with some excellent entertainment for kids and elders. Kids enjoyed the pool and the waterfall too.
The gym and the Kerala massage was also refreshing. although this is not a very big hotel but it has something for everyone. i got to try my hand back on table tennis after a long time.

It is a good place with lot of activities such as karaoke , carrom , TT . They also arrange activities eg during my stay a magical show was arranged .
Place is beautiful and surrounded by green wood.
It is located very close to Matheran Bazar .
We have taken two rooms on GF , one of the room was a bit smelly , i guess bcaz of rain . I paid Rs 10,000 all inclusive ( Tax and all food) for 2 rooms for 2 days / 3 night . I guess it was a rate offered for a off season , You may pad it up by 40% when you are travelling during the peak season .
Breakfast was basic
Lunch was very good
Dinner was good
Overall food quality is good.
Staff is really good and service is prompt .
