Reviewed 5 December 2013

Very nice place to stay, Not very far from the market place but still peaceful and quiet. Good option to chose from the relatively noisier hotels right in front of the station.
During monsoon, the rooms are more moist and the mattresses as well, but I guess that would be overall case in very hotel in matheran.

Rooms are sufficiently larger. All meals are included in the package which is very nice.
The food served is nice and simple veg meal but extremely delicious. For non veg dishes you need to inform them earlier of your preference.

The hotel staff is very helpful. Every possible way they will want you to have a pleasant stay.
All worth a visit.

Best to visit end of monsoon season.

The toy train passes right in front of the hotel. During monsoon the toy train works only between matheran station and Dasturi (where the cab drops u) this is a fun 20 mins ride.
Neral to dasturi, share cabs run which charge around 70 rs per person

Room Tip: Check the rooms personally and then choose.

A simply good hotel for Matheran. Good at service, food, and also for nice morning views. Rooms was net and clean, staff was goo at service but fear of monkeys here. You have to be aware from monkeys otherwise the hotel is good at all. But cost was so high for us.

With friends it really does not matter where you stay, so staying here did not matter much.

The rooms were damp, sheets were stinking, cockroaches on the bed, bathroom very small. I think this says it all. However, from what I knew, in Matheran, this is a problem with most of the hotels.

Hot water was available only in the morning, that too between a specific time.

The staff was courteous and food was good.

All in all, a very basic hotel with basic facilities. Only meant for a one night stay. It is quite close (10-15 min walk) to the railway station so it scores well on the location.

Recently visited Woodside during our Matheran Trip for 1 night. The staff is very caring and courteous. The hotel is clean but the weather in Matheran during rains can play villain with dampness all around. This hotel does provide all basic facilities but dont expect anything exceptional as they don't charge as much.
As already commented by others, the food is homely and decent.

Most of the hotels in Matheran charge per head per day for fooding and lodging. I liked two things about Woodside-
First, foods were really awesome- they serve multiple items for meal with reasonably good breakfast. We loved each of the veg dishes so much that never bothered to order any extra non-veg dish after our first lunch.
Second, I liked the location because this is not absolutely in the interior. This is located before the market place/ Toy train station in Matheran. So it was easier for us to drop the luggage in hotel first and then begin our exploration in the woods. Lush green trees are all around this hotel which totally holds the charm of ‘woodside’. Don’t be surprised if next morning u see a monkey sitting outside your room staring at you.
Overall, the place is nice, stuffs and rooms were decent, I enjoyed our stay at Woodside during our Matheran trip.
