Modern amenities with quality food

5.5/7
Posted 21 Sep, 2014

I went to Jaldapara in the last year, November with my family and stayed at Jaldapara Tourist Lodge. It is situated within the forest. The environment was calm quite. We have stayed at cottage; from the cottage balcony we got the total view of entire tourist lodge. The bathroom was neat and clean with modern amenities and 24 hours hot water (geyser available). The room service was satisfactory. The restaurant service and quality of food was appreciable. Apart from family restaurant a separate bar is present at the lodge. Tea and evening snacks are available at room, the room was spacious and easily manageable for four persons, in that case extra bed charges will be applied. Looking for good location with budget plan at Jaldapara┬Ł then Jaldapara Tourist Lodge is the indispensable choice. The overall experience was so nice and so thrilling at Jaldapara Tourist Lodge. Local people are very simple and honest.

One of the oldest tourist lodge of WB Tourism

5.5/7
Posted 15 Dec, 2015

Very big tourist complex having old wooden block, new concrete block and the cottages built very recently. Rooms are spacious with modern amenities. It is located adjacent to the forest. Monkeys are seen and at times they come close to your room for food. The complex has a well maintained garden where children can play around. The reception staff arranges tickets for elephant / jeep safari for the guests. This is an added advantage for staying in the JTL There is an in house restaurant and a bar. Meals are tasty and in expensive Located about 150 kms from Jalpaiguri railway station), takes a drive of 4 hours. Advance booking is possible for which web site of is referred.

Comfortable and serene place to stay

5.1/7
Posted 29 Nov, 2014

I visited Jaldapara as a part of my wandering spree in North Bengal. I had already covered Gorumara and was on way to Jayanti after Jaldapara I was trying to get the Hollong reservation and settled down on this one since it was totally full. The place is very easily walkable from Madarihat railway station about 15 minutes comfortable walk. The first glance of the lodge beyond the wooden bridge gives you a taste of the wooden wild life world. The front desk is very professional and friendly and they guided me immediately to my reserved room. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and airy. The ambience of the lodge is that of old time wooden jungle lodges and I loved the warmth of the corridor. The rooms start at 1500, 2000, 2200, etc. If you are a single traveller like me they give you a 25% discount. All booking to be done online on site On arrival, after check-in they advice you to book the elephant safari for the first trip in the morning. They have just 2 elephant trips at 5. 30 am and 6. 30 am from Hollong. They drop you to Hollong and take some basic charges for the vehicle and guide fees. The restaurant also has a bar so you can have your drinks at the place. I being a veg didn't enjoy the Bengali veg meals served here. They were too bland and tasteless. Although the Punjabi food was edible. I guess the non-veg might be a better bet. There are no great eateries or restaurants near the place so if you care about hygienic food you would have to end up eating at this place only. Meals are reasonably priced and the breakfast is complimentary They also have a dormitory that they give out for big families, these can't be booked online. Otherwise, they occupy drivers. There are no add on amenities like pool. The cottages are separate from the main wing and seem like a quaint place to be. You would need to carry all your own toiletries. None are supplied here. All said and done, it's a good lodge, very comfortable and serene.

Pleasant forest stay and quality food

5.9/7
Posted 17 Feb, 2015

If anybody wants to visit Jaldapara wildlife sanctuary then they must stay in holiday resort. The Hollong tourist lodge should be the first choice as it's located inside the forest but if you don't get a chance then obviously select Jaldapara Tourist Lodge which is located just at the entry point of the main forest It's nearest railway station is Madarihat but all express trains don't have stoppage there so, you have to reach via road from Hasimara junction. A local cab will charge 400 rupees to board you the tourist lodge from the station The room rates are moderate but not very cheap but the room quality is very good. All the bookings for local sightseeing, jungle safari can be done from the lodge reception and every destination has a fixed rate(no bargain) The hotel has a busy canteen with good quality of food which are available with pre-orders. The breakfast and morning tea is included in the tariff package. A light and sound show is arranged by the lodge in evening but not sure about its schedule The jungle people are helpful. They will not cheat you. But the animals may cheat you if you don't have luck with you. Try to opt for jungle safari in the afternoon as said by the forest guides because the chances of seeing animals is high before the sunset. You can visit Phuntsholing, Bhutan as its not far away from Jaldapara.

Excellent services and comfortable stay in tidy room

5.6/7
Posted 10 Apr, 2015

The hotel was convenient to locate but it was little far from the main city. The appearance of the hotel was good and interiors are also quite good. The staff members in the hotel were helpful and good enough in services. The food served in the hotel was good in quality and taste, and I preferred only veg food. The room allotted to us was spacious and cleanly maintained with all the needful amenities in good condition. There was safari facility available which was organized by the hotel management. The hotel management did not make any delay during check-in or check-out procedure. Overall, it was a very good experience here and money spent was definitely worth it.

Nice rooms but no amenities

4.8/7
Posted 31 Jul, 2013

I with my family members were for holidays, being from Nagpur we did not know much about the Jaldapara, through agent we booked. It has been renovated recently so the rooms were nice and beds were also in good condition. As there was no amenities as such except a big garden and food we ordered we got, being vegetarian, food we got was good, staff were very cooperative. Best thing of this lodge is that you don't have to go anywhere to book elephant safari as here we get the preference then private. There is no choice of food as there is no restaurant nearby . . I will suggest everyone who goes Jaldapara to take elephant ride as we enjoy so much when elephant crosses rivers at least 5 times and chances to see rhino is almost 100 % and the path of the elephant is through jungle and the grassland where the jeep cannot go, the best time to visit is in winter season There another govt. Lodge in the jungle, Hollong Tourist Lodge which is very nice situation wise, otherwise, Jalapara Lodge is much spacious and comfortable. From here Bhutan is only 30 km away. You can take this trip of Bhutan as we did.

Good rooms and food, helpful staff

5.4/7
Posted 24 Nov, 2011

Jaldapara Tourist Lodge, under WBTDC is a place where couples with young kids (5 years and below) should choose over Hollong Tourist Lodge. The Hotel is well landscaped with lovely garden having models of all creatures which exists in Jaldapara Forest. Since it is outside the Forest area, there is no restrictions on movements.

Reasonably good hotel with nice service and good food

6.6/7
Posted 24 Apr, 2015

The hotel is conveniently located in city and its appearance is quite good. The staff members were helpful and good in service. The room provided was neat and clean with all the needful amenities working properly but geyser was not good. The food served in the hotel was good in both veg and non-veg dishes. There was no delay in check-in or check-out procedure. I had been here with my family in the month of January for sightseeing which was replant by us. I did not notice any activity at the hotel and our stay was quite good and money spent was reasonable.

Posted 25 Mar, 2010

The staff were very friendly and accomadating. Booking has to be done with an Indian credit card, so that was a problem for us which we resolved by going through a travel agent. We originally booked dorm rooms, but they are NOT recommended. The doubles were fine and the price included 3 meals. Wildlife safaris can be arranged at the hotel. We saw 5 rhinos, a bison and lots of birds. Elephant safari was great. This site is recommended and the lodge was fine (as long as you aren\'t expecting 5 star...this is a good 2-3 star lodge.)

Posted 5 Jun, 2010

there should be lot more transperancy in terms of the charges for instance room rent,food extra charges like car safari , elephant safari.It seems that the tourists are sometimes at tyhe pity of of the employees of the Jaldapara Lodge.Their should be a prepaid counter for the tourist department to facilitate the families with fare car rental tariffs as there it is no bar when you ask for a car on rent to drop you at NJP or Siliguri.I was charged 2200 for ny room which was in fact for 2000 as it was a brick construction not a wooden construction but got to know this later when I reached in Newdelhi and then enquired with my friends.I had my son with me who got infected with some insect at the elephant safari but had to wait to reach NJP as doctor facility is not available.I regret to say may be the above said facility is available but didnt have any clue as their is nobody to handle the guests as relationship officer orlikely.Two faces Mr SAHA and another fellow with him only manages the whole lodge which puts more pressure onthem and also gives us very less time to enquire about anything.
