Our stay at "rater tara diner rabi"was just outstanding and brilliant.
From your room -always listen robindrasangeet,always have tasty indian foods, always see beutiful flowering garden and alway be happy.

Best Experience: Best location on the main road in between prantik rly station & viswa-bharati university campus,santiniketan.both are only 5 minutes away by rikshaw from the guest house.
Beautifully planned cottage with elegent mood of tagore's art & culture, marvellous flowering garden (eventually 1st position holder in both 2009 & 2010 all-santiniketan flowering garden competition) warm reception, outstanding service,enormous amount of tasty breakfast,lunch,dinner & snacks-round the clock tea/coffee & snacks. The service people were very sincere,homely & responsible. They were always attentive & eager for our best service .during our 4 day stay there they didn't ever made us dissatisfied.
It appears to me that all these are because of the main arkitect of "rater tara diner rabi" -mr.brajeswar banerjee.his professional managerial skill along with a constant personal supervision let this guest house to become such a pleasant place of santiniketan within 3-4 years time.
It is a memorable stay for us at santiniketan-i mean especially at "rater tara diner rabi" justifiably named after the tagore's great song.

Worst Experience: They didn't gave us any chance.
Whenever we go to santiniketan we will stay only at "rater tara diner rabi"

Rooms are spacious and clean. Landscaping is a plus. The staff are extremely courteous and make you feel at home.

Visited this guesthouse during Poila Baishak this year with my mother-in-law and my 6 year old son. The rooms were extremely clean and cozy, washroom very clean spacious. We stayed in first floor and the large balcony in front was very attractive to spend hours and hours just .The garden is colourful and well maintained, my mother-in-law in fact asked the gardener to bring few saplings for her which she liked in the garden. Food, service and hospitality is well appreciated.

Best Experience: The overall ambiance lighted up mood. Both my 70 year old mother-in-law and my 6 year old son enjoyed thoroughly the place. Planning to visit the place with hubby dear next poila baisakh.

Worst Experience: nothing as such.

I went by the overall reviews of this property on this site and was very disappointed during my stay there. I did not visit Shantiniketan expecting 5 star luxury and service, but then the pricing has to be done the same modest way.
I would give thumbs up to cleanliness and peaceful surroundings. But that\'s it. And the peaceful surroundings are not something unique to this property anyways, and have to do with the place itself.
Meals were a let down. When you have checked-in evening after day\'s travel, you can\'t expect to retire to bed early as the dinner here is served only around 9:45 pm.
There\'s nothing to do in the evenings, and no local folk Baul music was arranged despite specific request. However, you would not be able to avoid the salesman who comes there daily to sell his merchandise to the guests. Even the so called and advertised charm of Rabindra Sangeet claimed to be played every morning may elude you if there are few guests staying in the guest house.
Not sure if it\'s wit all the rooms, but the room I was staying in had its electrical points operated from outside the room also, which meant that anyone could intentionally or unintentionally turn of your fan or TV from outside. This was definitely something unique to this place and I\'ve not seen this anywhere else.
It was only when I was at Shantiniketan that I came to know of better and cheaper accommodations like Maharshi Guest House.
Anyways, although I\'d like to go back to Shantinikatan, but do not intend to stay at Rater Tara Diner Rabi.

Wonderful experience. The rooms were very nice. Very courteous staff who were very helpful and they accommodated all our needs. We also liked the food very much. The cook arranged for all the special dishes we requested. We really felt at home, considering the fact that we traveled all the way from Chicago for our first ever visit to Santiniketan.

Best Experience: Great service. Very clean and spacious air-conditioned room. Beautiful landscaping. Great food. Will recommend to anyone.

Worst Experience: None
