We stayed for two nights during the puja holidays with our 18months old son. The coordination between Hotel's Shankarpur Staff and Kolkata Staff needs to be better as they have messed up our request for a garden view room. Do make sure when you visit about the allocation of room and insist on a garden facing room.

Food was actually the best part of the Hotel, a Hilsa buffet. Just imagine for a foodie. Overall quality of food was good, but the staff needs to be better trained. They are not rude, but have to be made efficient.

The authorities need to work on the overall operations, as the front desk switches off the lift during the evenings to save power, but there can be other energy saving initiatives. They need to work on the essentials and non-essential energy consumption. Plus since they have a near private beach, extra care should be taken about its wellbeing. Cleanliness is a concern. The beach is littered.

One small environment friendly suggestion, they should use solar water heating systems and other lighting needs should be sourced from solar sources, would save money on bills, and also would not require the lift to be switched off in the evenings.

The experience was mix and match tends more towards negative. Shankarpur Beach is not vast and open like Old Digha or Tajpur beach. The beach has entry fee unlike any other beach in that section. Hotel is about a 1. 5 km away from the beach but they have shuttle service for guests. Nest's private beach is just a hype this is most busy section of the beach being the entry point. They beach has provision to either have food from hotel or from local shacks. Receptionists and few waiters are like local party hooligans who are extremely rude with guests and heard so many guests end-up with verbal fight with them. On top of that they have age old hand written bills. Please ensure to double check the final amount. In restaurant on asking ice cubes they have give us huge block of ice they use to preserve fish.

Bottom line is if you have option to skip this location they will recommend Old Digha and Tajpur.

Pros:

1. Room is warm in cold night.

2. Lawn is clean and well maintained

3. One has provision to have food in lawn and terrace apart from restaurant.

4. 24 hours instant hot water.

5. Excellent fireworks on the New Year eve.

6. No beach entry fee if you are using hotel's shuttle service.

7. Effective shuttle service to beach round the clock.

Cons:

1. Very rude receptionist and extremely slow process on check-in and check-out.

2. Non Ac Economy Double bed room is small like match box.

3. Bad sleep quality due to the rock hard bed.

4. Housekeeping not done in 4 days.

5. Have insects inside room sue to no cleaning for ages. Pillow, comforter or sofas have nasty smell.

6. Shower doesn't have hot water provision.

7. Restaurant service is terrible, food is served ice cold in case of room service.

8. Very cheap mentality to charge guests for ice cubes in bar.

9. Private beach is not private at all, just a hype.

10. High tax is charged if food is ordered for terrace or lawn.

Room Tip: Room no. 101 and 103 have adjacent terrace which is semi-private for evening gathering with family.

Pick-up from bus stand and from sea area was available. It attract us very much. Children's park is very nice there. There is also hand boating arrangement in their own area. Altogether it is very good experience.

A very beautiful spot, not crowded, serenity of the beach is maintained, lots of Casuarina add to the beauty of the sea beach. The hotel provides jeep to go to the beach area. There are shades & chairs arranged by the hotel on the beach, the rooms are nice but a bit far from the sea so you will not see the sea, a beautiful park is there in the hotel.

Hotel was nice. Hotel location was convenient. I traveled there by car with my family and friends. Parking facility was available there. I am not sure about Wi-Fi connection but lift facility was available in the hotel. Behavior of the staff was helpful. Services were on time. Room was spacious and well-maintained. All basic amenities were available in the room like TV, AC, geyser, etc and they all were in working condition. Garden view was visible from the room. Appearance of the hotel was okay-okay. Food facility was available in the hotel and it was tasty. I had no problem during check-in and check-out facility. Gym was available in the hotel but I am not sure about games. They had private beach also. Transportation facility was available there. My overall, experience in Shankarpur was nice. It was a reasonable hotel. This is a recommendable hotel to other travelers. There should be some improvement in Interior look of the hotel and also interior view of the room. Garden was available in the hotel.

The hotel was conveniently located near to the market. There is no delay in check-in check-out process. The hotel appearance was good. I visited with my family in month of June 2013. The room was clean and well preserved with all the basic facilities such as AC and TV. There is city view from the room. The food at the hotel was good lots of varieties in veg it is buffy system. The amount paid was valuable and I recommend this hotel to other travellers. TV remote was not proper so I would like to suggest proper amenities.

My stay was comfortable with family as it was a relaxation trip. The hotel is conveniently located as the hotel provided pick-up and drop facilities. The appearance was good. The staff were very helpful and quick to respond. The room allotted to me was spacious and well-maintained with all the essential amenities in proper working condition and had a good garden view. The food were delicious with all the varieties and the hotel provided indoor and outdoor games. There was no delay during sign-in and sign-out process. The hotel is worth for the money and I surely recommend this hotel to other travellers.
