Recommended Stay: Delightz Inn

HolidayIQ reviewer Arpita Banerjee describes the stay, "Delightz Inn is nestled amidst lush green hills and every room on the upper floor gets to see the mesmerising sunrise and mist play depending upon the rain gods. The kitchen has a multi-cuisine menu and the kids tucked in good amounts owing to the quality of the food. The breakfast served on the lawn was novel. It maintains a very good garden which includes many species which we paid to see at the Botanical garden! Horse riding has to be paid for."

Other Facilities: Sports club for kids and adults and bonfire.

Recommended Stay: Kodai Resort

HolidayIQ reviewer Subhendu Chatterjee talks about the specialities, "Cottages with a rustic environment, great view and open areas to relax. With big open terrace balconies, you can witness beautiful sunrise and rain. With Coaker's Walk and Bryant Park just across the road, spend the morning and evening with a spectacular view of the valley. Walk to the Kodai Lake through the Bryant Park and enjoy cycling, horse riding and boating to your heart's fill."

Other Facilities: Ayurvedic centre, beauty parlour, souvenir shop,  kid's play area, campfire, reading area with mini library.

Recommended Stay: Radisson Blu Hotel

HolidayIQ reviewer Shubhro says, "The thing about Radisson Blu, apart from being the oasis in the middle of the winding confusion of Agra streets, is that they make the effort to get to know what kind of a patron and traveller you are." HolidayIQ reviewer Subhasis Sahu says, "The beautiful location near Jamaal and Agra fort, the night viewing of Taj at moonlit night was mesmerising. The food, the hospitality and the ambience were all excellent for a family visit or for romantic nights. Horse riding to Jamaal at stone's throw was amazing.

Other Facilities: Indian Nawabi cuisine, sports bar, spa.

Recommended Stay: Usha Ascot

HolidayIQ reviewer Saurabh says, "Usha Ascot is a very good hotel located in Matheran. It has all facilities like swimming pool, spa and all. The hotel service is good and also the staff is cooperative.
