Great Experience,

Visited on 12th of this month for 2 nights with family, room was clean, bathroom was small, but comfortable, we cannot expect 5 star services. hotel is opp to matheran railway station, as others commented that the staff was rude etc., but i have not found so, they were so co-operative to us. Specially the food manager, he was personally looking after all arrangement. food was out to outstanding. swimming pool was neat and clean.

last but not the least thank you very much clear trip for the guidance

overall i will prefer the same hotel if i visited again

I came for a weekend getaway from noisy Mumbai. As others have said, the location is very good and across from the train station. I found the room to be basic but very clean and quiet. The dining room was spotless, and the food was outstanding. I had no health issues eating any of the hot or cold foods. The afternoon tea delivered to the room was so nice and made my stay all that more enjoyable.

Now my experience with the staff was quite different from what others have described. The reservations desk was always helpful and very patient with me since I did not speak Hindi. After check in, they gave me a map of the hill station and made recommendations on places to see. The dining room staff were extremely attentive. As soon as my plate or a thali bowl was empty, someone was there asking if I would like more.

I never used the pool so I cannot judge except to say it looked small but quite suitable for children.

I have recommended this hotel to other friends and they have echoed my comments. Perhaps a change in management and/or staff has occured. I am planning to return to Matheran and I will stay at the Rangoli again.

This hotel is located exactly opposite to the railway station...so very near to market as well..
when we booked this room we have asked for the front facing room and they assured as that they will give us one. but when we reached there they gave us some side facing room from where we can only see the walls of the property next to hotel...so we were disappointed...

nothing much to write about this hotel.

The hotel was just opposite the railway station and near to the market. The rooms were not of star quality but quite clean. The rooms were quite spacious but the bathroom was quite small. The food was excellent Gujarati food and the staff serving food made us feel at home. I did not find the reception staff coperative . The A/C was not working whenever there was power cut. On the whole it was a wonderful experience. Its really worth staying at Rangoli Retreat.

You need to be alert while dealing with these guyz, they would claim any sort of nonsense rates and then do a large bargain..Would try to shell as much money from u as much possible...u need to be quick and have knowledge of the rates..otherwise they would cause u a large financial loss..although room service and the foood was awesome..only the thing which they lack was honesty...
