Reviewed April 27, 2009

we wanted a little break from the busy city of bombay. but we didn't want to go to far away. we chose the perfect hotel in the perfect destination. the hotel is well located, close to the market.
the service was excellent and adjusted and complied to all our needs. the atmosphere was well set and there was a variety of cusines that defered every night. they also provided south indian massages and special waterfall bath therepies. it was the most ideal getaway which we greatly needed.

Matheran is the nearest hill station from Mumbai and situated amongst mountains, jungles, vallies and the clouds. The peace and the tranquility of this hill station is incrediable. All the nature's ingredients have been well preserved at this hill station. The mini train ride is also an adventure. Monkies, although very mischievieous, are also an attraction.

Matheran has been our favourite hang out for the past about 20 years for short holidays. We must have visited Matheran for almost about 50 times. We have just returned yesterday i.e.on 13th January , 2009 from a 2n/3d all inclusive holiday package at Horseland Hotel & Mountain Spa. The hotel has very much improved since our last visit during last year. The food, veg as well as non-veg unlike before, was very tasty and delicious frilled with a very courteous and personalized service.

Children had a lovely time at the kiddies' pool. The rabbits and ducks, besides swings, mary-go-round, slidding boards etc. were also an added attraction for children. It was so lovely that it became very hard for us to return. In our opinion it was truely " A Real Value For Money " package. One must visit the place to believe.

The website of this hotel is full of lies - the hotel does not look anything like the pictures and is certainly not the beautiful relaxing place it is made out to be.

Firstly, our room was full of damp and so it smelled awful and everything in it was damp.

Secondly, the pool was full of dirty water - certainly not useable. When we asked about using the spa - the jacuzzi, sauma and steam room we were told none of it was in use.

The food was ok - not great.

The worst part was when, after lying on the bed reading for a while, I got up to discover a bug on my pillow. I then looked underneath to find several bed bugs crawling around on the pillows. Thankfully I had spotted them, or we would have got bitten to death in the night - not very pleasant. We were given another room - once again very damp. Understandably, we then did not get a very good nights sleep since we were worried about being bitten by bed bugs.

We also did not get a hot shower - it was freeezing cold.

The only good thing about this hotel was the massages we got.

I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

MATHERAN: Horseland Hotel And Mountain Spa
DATES: March 6 & 7 2008
REVIEWER: Ms. P. Pinto, Mumbai
MOBILE: [-]

We visited Horseland Hotel And Mountain Spa just last week i.e. on 6th & 7th March 2008 on a 2N / 3D, all inclusive package. The hotel is really good with very spacious rooms. The service was very warm and cordial.

The pool is lovely, adjoining a beautiful man-made waterfall. Our kid age 3 years enjoyed the most in the kiddies' pool, on the swings, on the mary - go - round horses, on the see-saw etc. installed in the hotel. Excellent place for children too.

The pure-veg food was good but not so good as claimed. Definately requires improvement.

We have visited Matheran atleast 30 to 40 times having stayed at various hotels. We visited this hotel for the first time. We thoroughly enjoyed natural peace and tranquility in this hotel. The atmosphere is covered with greeneries all over. Now onwards our regular hotel at Matheran will only be Horseland Hotel And Mountain Spa.

Overall, I would say this is probably the best hotel we have ever stayed in Matheran at this price.

Horselands Resort was a wonderful experience. We were there just after Christmas 2007. Though the rooms are not very modern or well decorated, they are fairly large and comfortable (ask for a softer matress if the one you have is too hard). The room service was very good, as was the service during the buffet meals. However, the mosquitos were a bit of turn off and the unheated pool far too cold to swim in in the winter. Overall, we had a great time and I will not hesitate going back there, with alot of mosquito repellant.
