Visited the place during monsoons in a group (10 adults + 2 kids). Here are some pros and con for the hotel

Pros:
(*) Close and accessible from the market.
(*) Like many other fellow reviewers, I would rate the food very good. It was all vegetarian but was very nice. Also they do not mind if you get non-vegetarian food from outside which I thought was very good.
(*) The rooms have a good enclosed veranda in front which was excellent. Being closed there was no menace from monkeys ! (which is extremely important anywhere in Matheran)

Cons:
(*) Unfortunately all the good points end here. The property is very very old and needs urgent upgrade. I am sure it would have been extremely good during its peak days but not anymore. All rooms have creaking furniture, smelly beds (I understand it rains heavy in Matheran but this was smelly beyond words) and leaking rusty taps and showers. We had booked 5 rooms and all had the same fate.
(*) The price was too high for what was available. Monsoon is a relatively off-season for Matheran and hence other good hotel were much cheaper.
(*) Although the hotel ground staff was good the management was pathetic ! We had made a prior reservation (which was a big mistake) since we were a big group. There was a refund they had to make at the end of the stay. The hotel management refused to pay us. We finally got it when we made several rounds to their Mumbai office.

Overall, it was a bad experience for us. Would not recommend this unless they charge half of their published tariff.

Room Tip: Avoid making a reservation before hand without seeing the room.

We went to Matheran on Oct 20-21. The toy train is still not working which was a disappointment. Had to take a shared cab from Neral.

On arrival in Matheran we were hounded continuously by the ghodawalas and hotel agents which was v.irritating. I was told later this could be because there was less crowd that weekend due to Navratri and hence they hounded the few who came to Matheran.

We stayed at Hotel Panorama which is located near the market & is easy to find. The rooms are nice and clean, though not top class.The food was veg, but simple & nice - had thali for all meals, though I hear generally there is buffet for dinner. Another good point is that monkey menace is less in this area as compared to hotels nearer to the lake. The staff was friendly and courteous. They provide hot water in the shower in the morning. It is a good hotel, though I feel price is slightly higher but I guess that is true of most hotels in Matheran.

We enjoyed the walk and the pollution free environment there as well as the weather.

we had stayed here on 15 Sep for 01 night. Altogether it was an ok property. Food is great and specially the deserts, they are yummy.. Staff is friendly and always ready to serve you... Rooms are also spacious. the day we entered the room was slightly smelling may be because of the rains but after when we kept room open for sometime it wasnt... the play area for kiddo is nice... my lil champ had a nice time

We had been here for our 1 year anniversary. We were looking for a really quiet time, and didn't want any fancy hotels. Hotel Panorama worked well for us.
It is decently priced, serves good food and is well located. We got a room facing the entrance, and didn't have any good views. It could have done well with some lighting, the room was a bit gloomy.
They had a working cable TV, and had hot water for bathing in the morning too. They used to have a decent spread for all three meals. It was usually some tea and french fries in the morning, followed by breakfast that included idlis, sandwiches, bread+butter / jam, some wadas etc, cut fruits etc. Lunch and dinner were decent too. live pav-bhaji counters, not too spicy, not too sweet vegetables, hot chapattis etc..
The property is situated on a hill slope, and is walking distance from the railway station. Look for rooms near the swimming pool as they tend to have more sunlight during the day.
Note: Monkeys do come on the roofs and around the courtyards sometime. But this is quite common in Matheran anyway.

Overall, if value for money is your mantra, and aren't expecting lavishness, Panorama will not disappoint you.

Its a good relaxing affordable place with good food...nothing extraordinary...but nothing bad...good part id it is in the market and the station is very nearby
but be careful of the monkeys with no fault of the hotel this is a problem in matheran.
one should always travel with family or friends as this place is very subdued so if you are not looking for alone time or time with someone special I would strongly recommend to visit in groups.
