Ashok Hotel
Ranked #9 of 26 Matheran B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 January 2013

Most of the people expect 2 things from any hotel: good food and sound sleep. This hotel is good at food but worst when it comes to sleeping comfort.
This hotel is not meant for couple like us but for family-friends.

The room offered to us was damn small and can only fit in bed. On asking receptionist was told that couple rooms are of this size only and being long weekend all other rooms are full. Remaining rooms looked bigger though.
Mattress of bed was horrible and while sleeping if we turn around also used to make noise and disturb our sleep.
Also room was not clean enough with dust at the edges of wall.
For charging when we used socket it came out with live wire hanging near switch board.
For watching tv when switched on the TV it always used to start up with full volume making us frustrated.
Room intercom phone dead.
During night times in washroom you will see big ants (makoda) moving around.
Swimming pool is just of namesake and was it for kids or insects :P

On positive note, food was appreciable with gujarati taste. Also jain food was served with many dishes.
Hotel has spacious area for playing around with outdoor games like badminton, cricket, table tennis, volleyball, carom, etc.
Proximity much near for most of the points.
10 mins walking from station.
Cheaper rent compared to other hotels... if well maintained improving just few things can attract much tourists else itz pathetic, especially for couple no no.

If you are expecting only good gujarati food then this is a right place for you but not if you also want to have pleasant stay. The rooms and especially beds are very uncomfortable...It doesn't appear like hotel at all. It is a good choice if you are going with large group as the hotel is very spacious and enough space to enjoy outdoor games...

Not reccamended for long stay. There is no management. Have hired unprofessional people to run the hotel which once upon a time was among the best. Owners have made their money and resting in Mumbai at the expense of unaware customers

Good things about Ashok hotel are the cheap room rates and a huge play area. Rest is all ordinary. The toilets were swarming with black ants and the bedsheets were not very clean. Televisions were not very clear in all the rooms. Even the food served was quite oily. The swimming pool is actually a kiddies pool, about 4 ft deep and about 20ft by 10ft in size

The hotel, with paint peeled off at many locations, and broken doors gave an image of a very good past. Overall, its only recommnded if a cheap trip is the prime objective.
