We visited Shantiniketan during the eve of Independence Day in a ill planned holiday. However, once reached, we found the town to be quite and beautiful. The resort is situated somewhat far from the main town and is covering a huge area. The overall experience of the trip was good We booked the Room from the official website of the hotel. The Rooms were quite good and clean. Even the staff changed our room on our request for some specific amenities. The cable connection in the TV of our room was not good at all and picture was not at all visible. Interior of the room was beautiful. The Bathroom, Bath-tub etc was clean enough. There was also a small refrigerator in our previous room, though the same was not provided while we changed the room. The swimming pool was not really in state to use as the same was being filled with fresh water at that time. The food the hotel provided was not up to the mark. There are some facilities of indoor games in the games room, though we could not find the table tennis balls and the bats were not at all usable Behaviour of the staff were good, except during check out the receptionist exclaimed loudly in front of us about the how THEIR OFFICIAL WEBSITE is charging the rent which was supposed to be increased some times back. Otherwise the staff were good and was timely in handling requests Interior of the restaurant of the resort is good. One can have better food nearly 2-3 KM away in some restaurants like "Ghore-Baire" etc Overall our stay at the hotel was good and we enjoyed our stay at Mark & Medows
We are very disappointed with the service provided by Mark and Meadows to our elite customers, who also happen to be the Owner of M/s. Love Thy Nature. They have spent around 12000 for 4 PAX for one night stay in API plan. The A/C was not working for nearly 3 hours after their arrival, that was not certainly not expected from a 3 star hotel like yours. Management was below average, the manager always have a sorry and clueless look on his face whenever our guest asked them when the A/C will start working . . The service at the Mark and Meadows restaurant was VERY POOR. It seems that the employees are fresh passouts from some private hotel management college, who have no clue how to treat guests, as if they were not paid properly so they are showing this lenient attitude towards the guests. Especially the hospitality that our guests have received there is certainly not expected from a renowned hotel like yours. Anyway we will make sure that you will not get any bookings from us in the future. We will also notify all our B2B partners and Tour operators about this and anyone we knew that Mark and Meadows has lost its charm.
The resort external and internal appearance was worthy. I have stayed two days in this resort with my family for the purpose of relaxation. The staff behaviour was caring and supportive with good services. Rooms were large, neat and clean well maintained and all amenities were functioning properly. There was no view seen from the room. They provided Indian and Chinese food, and the quality was tasty with different types of quantity. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. I would like to recommend to other travellers and my stay was happy in this hotel.
This was our 2nd trip to Santiniketan. We travelled around Bengali New Year and maybe because of the heat, we did not find the place too crowded which was good for us. It is a old and famous hotel. We received excellent service and the food. Since it was not too crowded, we got the option of choosing rooms. Not all rooms are maintained but the room we chose was maintained though. I was sad to the children's park and the swimming pool not maintained at all. Since it's a big property, parking was not a problem. Then you can stay at this place as it is not too far from Santiniketan, 30 min in car. We could also negotiate rates. And there was Adivasi dance arranged in one of the evenings which was pretty good. Please take prevention for mosquito because there are too much mosquitoes.
The hotel location was good. The surroundings were neat and clean. The staff of the hotel was friendly and helpful. The interiors and exteriors of the hotel were good. The room was spacious, neat and clean. The amenities in the room like AC, TV and geyser were working properly. The food served was Veg as well as Non Veg and of good quality. There was no delay in check-in or check-out. The hotel arranges a sightseeing on request. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.
