LONELY PLANET. Lords Central Hotel... May not be the most luxurious around, but it's a charming place whose owners bend over backwards to make you feel at home. It has a well placed pool, small library, bar, dining room and a giant chess board. Per head rates include three fabulous meals.
Rough Guide - "These days, however, few foreign visitors venture up here, and those that do hang around only a couple of days, killing time before flight or to sample one of India's most charming colonial-style hotels, Lord's Central Hotel. Lord's Central. Matheran's most characterful landmark, near the railway station. Genteel Raj-era cottages with terraces and superb views across the Western Ghats from a relaxing garden. Excellent Veg and Non-Veg menu including Parsi and British food."
