If you want to spend some time in heaven, just be there. A fantastic lodge by WB government. A cup of evening tea in front of rhino, sambar, gaurs, what else you want?. Experience the jungle life. The room was pretty fantastic. The food was delicious and healthy. They treat their guest like home. The chef was very friendly and wanted to know what we wanted in food. We love their humble hospitality. I will be there every time.

The hotel was situated in outskirts of the city and I did not face any difficulty in reaching. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was good. The staff at the hotel were specialized and obliging. The room was spacious, dirt free and well-maintained with all the conveniences at good condition. I didn't face any delay during check-in and check-out. The food at the hotel was good. The money spent on the hotel was valuable within my budget. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

A known acquaintance of the Forest Department booked this Lodge for me from their office in SN Bose Road, and I faced no problem at check in and check out. This lodge is about 7-8 Kms inside the Jaldapara forest area. No doubt it was a good location. From the rooms one can see the animals roaming around as also they come to the river for drinking water; a nostalgic view. I stayed here for one day. There is a canteen from where food was taken. Since we were out the whole day, therefore, lunch was taken outside. The rooms and service was good. The staff behaviour was good and helpful; they would respond to our calls quickly and gave us good guidance for sightseeing. The rooms had a TV, chairs, table, etc. The food from the canteen was good. I made a visit with my friends to the forest in October 2012.

There was no any difficulty to reach the hotel but while booking we had problem because there was only four rooms. The appearance of the hotel was excellent and attractive. The room was spacious and well maintained. Had good view from room. I had very good quality of food at this hotel. There was no any delay during check-in and check-out. I visited this hotel with my friends for relaxation purpose in the month of February. There were no any activities and we had an elephant ride. And the hotel was value for money and once again if I get chance I will definitely visit the hotel and I had mind blowing experience. I will recommend to other travellers, but we need to book the rooms before three months.

If you can get perfect jungle experience, then I suggest staying at Hollong lodge at Jaldapara Madarihat, Alipurduars. Recently Jan 2014, I was visited Jaldapara with my family and stayed at Hollong lodge for 2 night. It was marvellous experience about wildlife. We saw one horned rhino, bison, sambhars, peacocks and deer. We really wanted to see bunch of elephant and tiger but unfortunately we couldn't. Early morning thrilling elephant safari was so good enjoyable experience.

Double bed one room 2500/- per day, extra person extra charges, food charges 400/- (evening tea, snacks, dinner, bed tea, breakfast) compulsory per head. Lunch 150/- optional.

It is a nice place for stay. Rooms were well maintained and well managed. They were neat and clean with all basic amenities as TV, geyser, etc. I went there with my family. Hotel has cottage-type rooms as well as normal rooms, and I stayed at normal room. Food was okay. There was Bengali food available. Both veg and non-veg food was there. I stayed there for one night and two days. According to budget, it is worth money paid hotel. Hotel services were good. Car parking facility was also there. Garden and pool were there. Road was not in good condition and there was some maintenance work going on. Hotel location is average. I made my booking directly with the hotel. There were no problems in getting the rooms. Jaldapara as a tourist place is beautiful.

Superb hotel! It was a 2 days stay there. Food is of best taste and quality. Different varieties of veg and non veg are available there. Services are very good. Rooms are perfectly maintained. Those are neat and clean. Geyser is there but TV is not available. Cottage type rooms are not available there. Garden area is beautiful. Hotel is situated in deep forest. It is about 8 km inside the forest from road. It was an awesome experience there. Hotel appearance is nice. You have to go with prior booking there. Jaldapara is perfect place for tourism. It is definitely a money worth hotel and perfectly recommendable.

Lodge is very good. I stayed there for two days. 24-hour hot water facility is present. Canteen food is mind-blowing. Both veg and non-veg food is present. Cottage rooms are not available. TV is present. Hotel is located right inside the forest. I did booking through a known person. Hotel services are satisfactory. Rooms are neat, clean and spacious. Non-veg is too good, just like homemade food. Hotel is recommendable to all. It takes almost 15 minutes from station to reach the hotel, so hotel location is great. Hotel is well constructed and well decorated. Jaldapara is an awesome tourist place. You have to place the lunch order before 9 o’clock in the morning. Food quantity is also nice.

Hollong Tourist Lodge - a property of WBTDC, maintained by the joint efforts of WBTDC and WBFDC located 8 km inside Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary from the main gate on the highway at Madarihat. This property was established long back when the rooms were available to VIPs only but presently this property is open to all. There are 7 double bedded rooms for tourists and 3 rooms reserved for VIPs.
Booking of rooms opens 120 days in advance. You must try from the first day of opening because it is very hard to get confirmation.

The property is made of wood and provide you the feeling of being in jungle. The lodge is built up on high concrete pillars so that elephants cannot make any damage. There is a salt pit just in front of the lodge. Forest personnel place salt mixed with soil and other things which the wild animals love to eat. This salt pit attracts wild animals like gaur (India Bison), elephants, rhinos, deer and many birds throughout the day. One can sit by the salt pit and view all animals feeding. The creek of the Torsha river separates the lodge from the salt pit. The salt pit is even visible from the rooms. One can spot a wild fellow even from the rooms of the lodge. The elephant safari in Jaldapara is done from Hollong lodge. Tourists staying in Hollong get the preference and first priority. There is very rush and craze for the elephant safari from Hollong, so tourists staying in private hotels & resorts and other govt. lodges would hardly get the scope for the safari from Hollong.

Food served and their service is really appreciable. I highly suggest this property if you have plan to spend nights in Jaldapara. One thing I must share that do not plan your trip as per your wish, it is better if you plan your trip according the availability if rooms in Hollong. This will confirm your stay in Hollong Tourists Lodge. Cheers...!
