We had been to Brightlands Resort for a Company picnic. The group was about 30 persons. There are big rooms with mezzanine floor which can easily accomodate persons each and there are smaller rooms which can accommodate 2 persons. There is a swimming pool and bar facility. A DJ plays music so the group can have a great time. This...

I stayed for 3 days with my family on a holiday. Rooms are average. The ambience is reasonably good as the property has open spaces where swings, a TT table and a swimming pool are there. However, there are monkeys all over the place, who create a nuisance. A monkey even entered my room and took away a bottle of...

I stayed at the Brightland Resort along with Friends. We opted for the Duplex Room so that 4 of us could stay together. The Room is Highly Recommended for Family with Kids. They'll just love the Loft Room. The Hotels a bit further down the Market so its quite a walk (You could take a Horseride or a Cart). But...

We took a short break after Diwali and decided to go to Matheran. A place that I wanted to visit for a long long time and was glad that we finally were going there. All my enthusiasm went for a toss till we entered the room that we were going to stay in for the next 3 days. It was...

free hotel stay was charged with full rent in the pretext of grown up children (one aged 15 years and other 9 years). Bad mannered manager without any coutesy and softness. Not a pleasent experience in hotel.

Okay, so you are planning a trip with a big family to Matheran? This would be the right place for you! Peaceful and cheap on cash ! It has all basic amenities , but the rooms we stayed in were not good, they were clean but badly designed and colored! The swimming pool was full of insects and dirt. Not...

The location of the resort is a nice quite one. The rooms are neat and clean. They offer meals at their other resort - Horselands which is an amazing place. You have the option to call for meals to Brighlands or you could visit Horselands. Any one staying at BL is generally offered usage of the facilities at HL's. Where...

We stayed here in matheran. The room service is very poor. While booking on phone from Mumbai, we got confirmation from hotel office in mumbai that we are being alloted an AC room. But when we went there, to our surprise we received a non A/c room. The room service was also very poor.
