Although the coaches were a bit old, the on-board catering service was one of the best I have experienced on the train. You get a bottle of water, 1 facial tissue, 1 Frooti to start with. Then you will be served chicken soup with breadsticks. For non-veg lunch you will get 4 chapatis, rice, 1 dal packet. Chicken curry, pickle, mishti Doi and vanilla Ice-cream! What more can you ask for? There were mobile charging points even. Itís a superb train :)

The road is now smooth and safe, comfortable to drive, three and half hours from Kolkata to Digha. It's a beautiful experience driving on NH-6 in the morning, then the Haldia Road is also excellent. From Nandakumar to Digha, the road is single but smooth.

Money wise, the hotel was not worth. Sea facing rooms were great there. Room was well maintained but not too much spacious. AC, TV, geyser and other daily use items were available there and they all were in working condition. Staff cleaned the room regularly. Sea view was visible from my room....more »

Since Kolkata is a city full of traffic and roads are terrible, hence, a drive along the highway to Digha is quite comforting. If weather is cool then the drive becomes more better which in our case was good as it was a winter day. Its a total of 180 km from the outskirts of Kolkata to reach Digha. One has to pass by a lot of small towns which are very crowded so driving has to be proper. Moreover since almost of the distance is single road and narrow highway so one always has to be cautious about the traffic which usually are tourist buses and cars.
