“Great Value in Matheran”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2010

I have stayed at the Gujarat Bhavan many a times & find it one of the best hotels in Matheran. The rooms are Average (Dont expect anything 5 Star), the location is also great (not every far not very close to the Market) but the thing that I remember this place is for the Food (the Gujarati Thalis are to Die for, but only Vegetarian).

They have enough things to keep the kids busy like a Pool, Play Area & Indoor Games. So for a Family with Kids, this is the Ideal Hotel.

Do opt for a Room closer to the Entrance otherwise its quite a walk. Overall, I would recommend this Hotel to people who are on a Low to Medium Budget (Not for the High Flyers).

We stayed at Gujarat Bhavan on 8.11.10 & 9.11.10 with family friends. Considering the high season charges were quite high but very little value for money. The owner of the hotel at the reception and he is a very good person. Only thing is that, it is quite old hotel needs make over a lot at various places. Food was good. One more plus point is proximity to market. I would recommend only if prices are low otherwise it would be better to go to Mahabaleshwar.

We booked this hotel thinking that it looks neat and tidy on the pics we saw online.
But our recation after arriving at the property was totaly different.The non ac rooms were very stuffy and bathrooms need to be mended.We had to upgrade our selves to AC room which was strictly manageable.The only good part of the hotel are its pure veg Thail meals and the dinner buffet at night.The hotel also has a swimming pool where families were enjoying. There is a huge garden at the entrance of the hotel ,where one a just have a laid back chat with your loved ones.
