Top Reviews of The Ffort
Purpose of the visit was mainly for leisure activities and wanted to spend quality time with Family. Raichak on Ganges (Ganga Kutir, The fFort and fFort Suites) really provided a memorable experience. Hotel is nicely situated in exactly on Bank of Ganges (Hoogly River) it offer three types of accommodations, The fFort is for small family, fFort Suites for little larger family and Plush kind of experience in Ganga Kutir. We stayed in fFort for three days and two nights. All the amenities are actually available mostly in the ffort. So if you are planning for Suites or Ganga Kutir be prepared to walk at least few KMs to avail all the amenities. We were not able to utilize all the amenities because of time, rain and humid weather. But still we were able to play football, Table Tennis, Carom, Cycling and a real big Chess. Other than this there were Tennis, Basketball, Pool, Swimming pool, video games and Darts are also available. Other than that we have done paddle boating and visited the temple inside it. You can also take Ganges river cruise in evening if around 15 people are available to go for cruise. Cost is around Rs 550 per person for river cruise. It also got Footloose (Bar + Disco), Anaya (Spa) and good two swimming pools. Food is a plus point here. You can go for exquisite Bengali lunch or dinner in Sonar Tori. Other than that you can taste food in Reflection (Indian and Continental) or in the Orient (Oriental). fFort Suite also having a restaurant though we have not tried it. Sonar tori are with Gang Kutir rest was with The fFort. People are helpful there. We faced only three issues in entire trip. Wireless was not working and they are not able to provide in entire trip (due to some network issue). World cup final we had a horrible experience and not able to watch for 35 min. In that experience we faced the worst experience as Manager was not came to help us in proper time. But later when he arrived he is able to get a solution and thankfully we were able to watch the final Match. 3rd Issue I feel as it is more than 17 years old property it needs a bit of renovation. Few areas look really old. But thankfully today I saw renovation has been started. That is actually good news and hoping to have much better looking property in next visit. Room suggestion from my side is the fFort and 5th floor river facing room, it really ravishing to watch The Ganges in different time of the day. Also rooms are really quiet and all amenities are easily reachable. Best time of visit should be from October to February. There is no nearby sightseeing area so enjoy the hotel to full extent and have nice quality family time.
It was extremely beautiful. I got a warm welcome at the front desk as I had a previous booking. The person accompanying me to my room elaborated the facilities available at Ffort Radison. The way he was talking, it seemed he was inviting me for lunch at their restaurant for Bengali cuisine \'Sonar Tori\'.
I stayed the Fort Raichak with my family for relaxation trip and it was very good hotel to stay. It was not more convenient to locate the hotel but surrounding was good. There was no pick up and drop facilities. The appearance of the hotel was good, both internally and externally. I ate food and it was good in quality and in taste. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The staff members in the hotel were helpful and they were quick in services. There was gym, spa, activities and pool organised by the hotel management and we enjoyed a lot. The room allotted to me was very good and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. Overall, the destination and the stay at the hotel were excellent.
The location was also very good but it was outside the city. We took a flight from Kolkata airport and then hired a car provided by the resort, so we reached the resort without any difficulty. The staff of the hotel was very nice and helpful. The hotel looked very good from inside as well as outside. The room provided to us was spacious. The amenities provided by the hotel like AC, TV, fridge and geyser were working properly. There was very nice garden view from the room. The food at the hotel was expensive, less in quantity and the same items were repeated in the menu. Amenities like swimming pool was very far from our room and that was very inconvenient, because the golf cart provided to us was not working. We asked the hotel to arrange for sightseeing and they arranged it. I would recommend this place to travellers with caution because the food was very repetitive. I would suggest people to check whether golf cart is working before booking the hotel as swimming pool and fort is very far from the resort. Overall the place was good.
Raichak is an awesome property with breathtaking view. The service is fast and the food is great. I just enjoyed the stay and its ambience.
