Heard a lot about this place. It's really true. Excellent rooms with awesome FOOD and Service. I have highlighted food because it's really lip-smacking and homely. I would suggest all planning to visit Santiniketan to stay here, relax and enjoy.

Five people and a baby went there for an extended weekend trip. Out of the 5, there were two senior citizens. The stay was comfortable and relaxed, thanks to the warm and pro-active hospitality displayed by the hotel staff. The property is situated at a serene corner of Shantiniketan, but quite well-connected to all parts. The food is simple, yet delicious and made more so by the cooking style of the Birbhum cook. We were offered pick and drop from station. Overall, it was a nice and worry free experience.

It was an enjoyable stay. Hospitality and behaviour of the staff commendable. Food was very hygienic and healthy. Cleanliness worth appreciating. I wish I had more time to write a more detailed review. This is not yet infested with odd type of travellers therefore it remains an ideal spot for peaceful travellers who wish to have a few days respite from a busy daily life.

It was a family visit for me, a day to explore the town laced with the memory of Kabiguru and also to see/purchase some of the artwork that Santiniketan is famous for. I booked two double bedded AC rooms. The hotel location is not all that great as the places of interest are at such a distance that you just can't walk into and hence you need a vehicle. The hotel exterior is maintained well, although its actual beauty is little less than what it looks in the picture provided by the owner. The room, bed, AC etc. Were fine. There is perhaps some scope for improvement in cleanliness and housekeeping. The quality and taste of the food served in the hotel was really good. However, there is no outside restaurant available in immediate vicinity of the hotel. I took the cab services from the hotel as i had not worked out for any option before hand, but they provided an old Ambassador car which was less than comfortable for travel. I also felt they charged little more for this service. I had to travel to Nabadwip from this place (travel of around 100 KM) and when i asked for a car service, it was the same old car on offer and that too with very high rate. They did not provide me with other alternative solutions. Finally i managed to book a Swift for this travel at much better rate. Hence, advice to other travellers - prefer not to take their services and have your own car rental arrangement. I made the booking to this hotel online through booking. Com and the site did not have any online payment system. The booking confirmation that i received has mentioned that i can make payment directly to the manager of the hotel when i check in. However, later i got another email from the owner that i need to make advance payment (by cash to their Kolkata office) to be assured of the confirmed booking. This was so much inconvenient for me, as i started travelling when i got this email and i did not have any arrangement to make the payment. There was angry response to my email to the owner complaining of the inconvenience of advance payment. Finally he relented though, with my promise of making the payment as soon as i reach there.
