Most of my reviews are written from the point of view of people travelling with children and this is no exception. The property is beautiful but getting there is not the easiest and therefore just some things to keep in mind...especially if you are travelling with children. This will be a long, fairly detailed review - so please do bear...

This was our second experience with Neemrana, and it just got better and more delightful; there is some magic with the ambiance and hospitality of Neemrana; they very accurately claim "We don't let history become a bygone." Its truly a Verandah in the Forest; encompassed and enveloped with the Mesmerizing beauty of Nature. We stayed in the room called "Petit";...

Love the room we stay in (Kotwal), the excellent 4-course continental dinner served at a huge wooden table, and of course the very caring and attentive service of the whole team at Verandah. Would highly recommend to all considering a visit to Matheran.

We spent 4 nights at the Verandah, every bit of it was a wonderful experience. The place takes back in time with its colonial, old English feel, where you are totally disconnected with the outside world without the television, wifi and with minimum mobile network. You can spend your days on excursions at the various points or reading at leisure...

We had selected this hotel after reading its reviews on trip advisor. The property is very well maintained and service is very good. Food quality (specially dinner ) was superb. They need to work on their breakfast menu. The location of the property is just amazing. It gives you feel of forest.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The paths once cleared by the British in the forests of Matheran, making it the last British hill station have acquired a new identity as the place where Bombay’s movers and shakers which include filmstars and businessmen come to spend a few quiet and peaceful days.Perched atop the Sahyadri ranges, Matheran is Asia’s only pedestrian hill resort. Chug up in a toy train, trot, or arrive in a palanquin, past gigantic mansions built by the British, the Parsis, and the Bohras. The Verandah in the Forest was the second house to be built on the isolated Western Ghats, by Captain Barr. Now, with every facility in place, it is reputed to be second to none! Indeed, the nobility of the proportions of The Verandah bring civilizational honour to the Sahyadri ranges. Lounge like never before in this verandah of your dreams. Read under the highest domestic ceiling you would have known in the salon – 12 metres/35 feet high. Stroll down to Charlotte Lake. Or take longer walks with a picnic basket. Relish the local cuisines. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the oxygen back in your lungs. Link your planet with your own two feet.Find space for more space in your mind. Or lose yourself to find yourself anew.Long after you return, you will wonder who would have dared to sprawl out such a tree-home space in such spell-binding wilderness? ... more   less
