My stay was very comfortable

Posted 17 Oct, 2016

The hotel is located conveniently and I did not find any difficulties. The staff were very good and quick in services, but they were not so professional. The room given to me was very good and maintained in clean condition with all the required amenities. I did not notice any activities in the hotel. There was no difficult during sign in and sign out process.

Not to expect much

Posted 25 Dec, 2015

The hotel is located in Rishyap hilltop. The road to Rishyap from Lava(9km ) is very bad. Rooms are okay but the geyser and the heater were not functioning because of power problem. Only positive side is that Kanchankanya could be viewed from the room provided the sky is clear. Food is good. In my view, visiting Rishyap is not suitable for all categories of visitors. It may be alright for young adventurous people, but not for elderly person requiring moderate comfort.

Excellent location and perfect for the couples

Posted 13 Aug, 2015

Nice resort having cottage type rooms. They have cottages with basic amenities. Western type bathroom plus toilet with 24x7 hot and cold water is available. They have their own kitchen and room service, but food options are very limited. However, we enjoyed our stay very much. Perfect for the couples looking for serenity in the lap of mother nature.

Food is good in quality and functioning amenities

Posted 27 Jun, 2015

It was holiday tour with friends. The hotel was good. But not all room was view room as they say. The staff were good and friendly. The hotel had good scenic view. The appearance was good and very good budget hotel. The room heater was not working apart from that room was good and all amenities were functioning. The food was good in quality and they had arranged for barbeque which was nice. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. There were no activities. We had managed our own sightseeing. It was a good budget hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Breathtaking views from balcony; reasonable tariff

Posted 1 May, 2014

I visited Rishyap, West Bengal during March and I was so happy to stay in Hotel Sonar Tori that I decided to let people know about this small but beautiful property in the lap of Himalayas. This hotel is actually an extension of Neora Valley Resort and is situated one case lower than the parent hotel offering 360 degree open view from all the 9 rooms it has. The upper floor rooms are costliest because it is at same level with the road and it offers more beautiful view of the valley . . The room tariff is however very reasonable. Rooms were comfortable with clean bed linens and blankets and other amenities like LCD TV, geyser was also available. The hot water however was supplied for only two hours in morning. The hotel is having own generator and it is operational up to 10 pm. They don't allow candles in rooms, so it is advisable to carry a torch. However, power cut is not an issue in this part The best part of the hotel is definitely the balcony and the places around the hotel which offered breathtaking views of the valley, blue mountains, mighty Kanchenjunga, trees with colorful leaves, chirping birds of himalayas and the colorful flowers. If you are a shutter bug, it's just a heaven for you. The hotel has got a restaurant which offers homemade Bengali khana and I loved the food very much. It was cheap and stomach friendly. Only thing I did not like about this hotel is that a dog of this hotel was barking continuously in night and my parents could not sleep well. Other than these few hiccups, this is a good budget property and I will love to stay in this hotel in my next visit to Rishyap, the hidden queen of Himalayas .

Excellent stay; outstanding location

Posted 18 Feb, 2015

Rishyap is one of the lesser known hill resort spot in West Bengal. Situated in a valley surrounded by towering hills, makes for a great sunrise and you never knew the snow covered Kanchendzonga changes so many hues during sunrise. Our cottage was on a hill top too. Surrounded by sparse forest and no boundaries to the resort we explored and trekked. The tall cottage (one and a half storey) has a single room but the real surprise is the wooden ladder leading up to a wide bunk, housing a mattress for two. My son went mad with joy. The nights need room heaters and bonfire while the days are not too warm if you have clouds swirling past your window. At 7 in the morning you still get to see the ground and all plant & trees covered in an ice layer or frozen dew and of course the tap freezes and you are on napkins till the sun's up properly.

Satellite television and geezer are provided

Posted 6 Jun, 2013

The location of the resort is best in Rishyap.The resorts are spread in a small valley like place which is the property of owner of the resort. There are seven rooms and one dining cum kitchen where the owner family also stays at an adjacent room. The quality of room and cleanliness of both room and bathroom are excellent and comparable with wbfdc/wbtdc resorts.Satellite television and geezer are provided in every room.Though Rishyap is known for deficient on water supply we didn't face any dearth of water at any time of our stay. The quality of food was also good. The only deficiency there was availability of service. They provided telephone in rooms but that did not work always.The weather was very bad during our stay and we face difficulty to reach the kitchen resort every time to ask for something during rain. The main reason behind this I think the owner family's aloofness about the matter. Though they stay there they left every thing on their employees.One more area where the owner needs to take care is to clean the jungle from the adjacent area of the rooms to restrict insects entering the rooms. Overall,the resort is an exceptional place for stay.
