Serene & Nostalic. Must for eco tourism.

Posted 12 Dec, 2017

This is a hill station and one of the best in that kind all of Jharkand. The ambient temperature remains below 6-10 degree than all places below hill. Netarhat has two important Points. One is Sunset point/Magnolia point situated at western end of the hill top. Other one is the Sunrise point. Hotel Prabhat bihar is of govt. owned property. Nice food at resonable price.(one has to order 2 hrs before to get time."

Helpful staff and excellent service

Posted 24 Mar, 2017

In November we have been to this hotel along with friends for week end. I would like to rate as very food for destination as sunset and nature was good here. Location of the hotel was excellent as the place was excellent. But to reach the hotel road is difficulty. The appearance was good but it is under construction. Reception area was very good as the staffs were good and helpful. Booking was done direct. The room was good with basic amenity and wash room was clean but it should be hygienic. The service was very good as they fulfilled our demands. Food was good as it was like home food. My experience was good at this hotel and I will recommend this hotel for other travellers.

Wish we stayed there longer

Posted 22 Feb, 2017

In Netarhat choices for Hotel are not many. I always prefer a govt. run place for tourism as I found they are best located, rooms are quite satisfactory for the price and services are also satisfactiry unless off course some one is a fussy person. Our choice of Pravat Vihar in Netarhat was definitely a good one. Rooms were of adequate size with good bed and sheets. Toilets were clean and comfortable. They were very responsive with our food requests and served delicious menu. from the roof top, one sees the Aditi rising in the morning. how beautiful to watch the early morning glow, slow ascent of Markendiyo in the horizon. Hold a cup of warm coffee in the hands to keep you warmed

All amenities were working fine in the room. The complimentary breakfast was not provided by the hotel.

Good place to stay with clean rooms

Posted 30 Jan, 2016

I landed in Netarhat not knowing what to expect. All that I knew was that it was a hill station and I had gone to relax. I stayed at Hotel Prabhat Vihar because of its location. The Hotel can be called as an unexpected bonanza. Climbing only a short flight of stairs you reach the terrace from where you have an uninterrupted view of the sunrise. There are several 'Sunrise points' within the campus. On wintry mornings one doesn't have to 'dress up' or go long distances to see the sunrise as is the case in many other destinations boasting of Sunrise points. The rooms are just about clean, with a television and a small bathroom. The food is palatable and room service is available. There is also a small service restaurant and that's about covers all the amenities. Almost all other attractions of Netarhat are within a ten minute drive. Make sure you ask around otherwise you may miss attractions like the Netarhat School (following the Gurukul system), or the tank and water supply system and so on. Make sure you know the timings properly, especially about when the sun sets or rises otherwise you'll miss the sights There is no bar, so if you like a tipple, carry your own.

A hotel at good location

Posted 1 Jan, 2016

A picturesque place, a must-visit for nature lovers. Hotel Prabhat Vihar, run by the Jharkhand Tourism Devt Corporation, is the only hotel that is worth staying. The appearance of the hotel is modest, but the people are extremely warm and helpful. Like any othet rural place, electricity is a big problem in Netarhat. So is the network. One can be in contact with the civilization only if one has a BSNL connection. But a true nature lover would rather be far from the madding crowd. The hotel itself is situated in the lap of nature. A spectacular view of the sunrise can be seen from each room. The weather is awesome too. It is a place which can be visited at any time of the year.

Remote location & good food

Posted 22 Oct, 2015

Netarhat ('Nature Hut' as was named by the British) is still a Nature Hut with only Airtel connectivity, else you are out of the world. Though you have options in staying in Duk Bunglow, Forest Rest House, Prabhat Vihar is the best place to halt as the boarders there gets the 1st view of the Rising Sun. The hotel in such a remote location is equipped with AC, Geyser & Cable Connections. Food is cheap and good. If you can spare a couple of minutes in the terrace and there is a clear sky, all the cosmos are clear and prominent from here. Also do visit the Ghagri Falls, Abashik School & Sunset point the day you reach.

Nice place to stay

Posted 1 Aug, 2015

The hotel was reachable. I had visited this hotel with friends. The hotel staffs behaviour was helpful and friendly in nature. AC, TV and geyser were working properly in the room. I had taken food inside the hotel. The quality of food was good. Mountain View was visible from the room. The activities like indoor and outdoor games were provided in the hotel. I would like to visit this hotel again.

Good & tasty food; value for money hotel

Posted 26 Dec, 2014

I went there in 2013 with my friends. Room was neat and clean. Money spend there was value for money. Food was good according to taste and quality. Sunrise and sunset view was visible from the room. Food was served in the restaurant only. No activity was there. I can recommend this hotel to others. It is a good hotel for families also. Complimentary breakfast was provided by them. Parking facility was there. WiFi connection was also there but it was not working at that time.

Good location; need to improve

Posted 14 Jun, 2014

Hotel Prabhat Vihar is situated at very good location(Sunrise Point). You can also see sunrise from hotel roof. Rooms of hotel is good but cleanliness was not maintained by hotel staff. They swept and changed the bed sheets after two days. There are huge water crisis there. You have to wait for water for doing daily activity. Power crisis is also one more problem. Generator power was not available for more than three-four hours. Food was also a big problem in Netarhat. Only in limited place food was available. In Prabhat Vihar they provided food but cleanliness and hygiene was a big challenge in cafeteria. You get lunch after 2 o'clock and dinner after 10 o'clock. TV was not available for everyone, they provided TV in only A/C room. There are huge difference in A/C room and simple room. I suggest everyone to take A/C room if you go there. Internal telephone facility was also not available, if you want something then you have to go to reception area. There are many area of improvement at hotel. Landline was not working. Mobile no. of hotel Manager- 09304676275. If you want advance booking of hotel you can call and book hotel before reaching there. If you plan to stay there then stay for one or two days maximum.

Worthy hotel with good services & comfortable room

Posted 30 Jul, 2015

The location of the hotel is convenient to travel and I did not find any problem in reaching here. The appearance of the hotel is good but there was frequent power cuts. The staff members in the hotel are helpful and good in services. The room allotted to me was maintained cleanly with all the required amenities in good condition. The food provided was good in quality and taste. There was no delay made while check-in or check-out procedure. Overall, the hotel is good to stay and money spent was worth it.

Average rooms with water & power problems

Posted 27 Aug, 2014

I booked the rooms from Kolkata Office of Jharkhand Tourism and faced no problems. The location was very good. I know a friend who conducted this tour for us. The only problem that I faced was water supply and power cuts for 18 hours a day, even though generator was installed but they never used it. It was a normal room not much of any facility. The rooms were neat and clean; sunrise could be seen. The food was good because of my friend who arranged everything for us. In the dining hall TV and carom board was available. I went to this place with my family on an adventure trip in March 2014. I would not recommend this hotel.
