Lord's central is a wonderful place for a leisure stay. It's a old hotel and that's the beauty of the hotel. The place is so good that you feel you are staying in your farm house. Location is quite accessible, around 10-15 min walk from station and around 3kms from Dasturi Naka (Place where one should park their vehicle). The... More

This is an extraordinary hotel in an extraordinary place. No cars can reach Matheran. If you're sick of Mumbai traffic this is an immediate enormous plus.

The present owner Mr. Shiavax Lord is pretty knowledgeable about the history of Matheran and was instrumental in the legal battle resulting in Matheran being designated an eco sensitive zone.

It rained heavily for all the four days so could not see the valley at all from my room because of the mist and dense fog. I also could not see the sunrise from my balcony which other reviewers...

I would want to validate all the other reviews of this place that praise the food here, not forgetting the beautiful valley view this hotel offers. We were here for three nights and not once was the menu repeated. The non-veg food was excellent, while the veg was good without being great. Just to list a few of the dishes... More
