Experience tranquility in colonial bungalow

by aarthee_jagan on 14 Feb 2019 (Couple Traveller)

Dune Barr House is a lovely peaceful experience for anyone looking to relax & unwind over weekend. Simple Colonial bungalow, tastefully designed & maintained in the middle of lush forests of Matheran- friendly staff who are happy to help & amenities sufficient to make the stay enjoyable. Reaching there- Google maps might show a longer route through Charlotte lake, find the Pisarnath Archway & follow road signs leading to property. Lots of horse rides will be headed to the lake taking the same...

Good stay

by bluespike2019 on 10 Feb 2019 (Family Traveller)

We had a short and enjoyable stay. The staff were very hospitable and went the extra mile in serving us. The bungalow transports us to the British era and is very peaceful. The food was also quite good. The resort is however quite far from the main market, which is a big a blessing and a curse. We would have loved to stay a bit longer.

Charming with excellent manager

We loved our stay at the Dune Barr House which is, indeed, a verandah in the forest. Be warned - you will be covered in red dust from head to foot (and it won't come off your shoes so be prepared to put them in the wash) by the time you get to the house, and you will be re-covered each time you go out for a walk to the many viewpoints or to the little town of Matheran. Rooms are comfortable with helpful notes on how to use the shower to best advantage, food is excellent and made to order (home-m...

Disappointing

by MZ07040 on 30 Jan 2019 (Couple Traveller)

We reached the Dune Barr House after a long horse ride from the parking area. We were greeted warmly by a friendly manager and kind staff, but the positives of the place essentially ended there. While the aesthetics of the hotel are lovely, the amenities were not. It was hot/humid while we were there and not only was there no A/C, we couldn’t leave our room door open because there were no screens on it. The two windows opened but provided insufficient ventilation and no cooling. And while we wer...

Relaxing stay in an old-world, imperial charmed building

by Pradeep A on 13 Jan 2019

Dune Barr House is an erstwhile building from the colonial era and converted to a hotel without changing much of the original architecture. This is the real deal with this place. So don't expect any modern amenities like wifi or TV or bathtub etc. However, the rooms have all the essential amenities including a tea maker, toiletries and even an electronic safe. Dune Barr house is a good one hours' distance from Aman lodge/Dasturi car parking place. You can either take the toy train from Aman lodg...
