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).
