We went to New Digha to spend a couple of days away from the roller-coaster life in the city. We were 12 people with 2 teenagers and a kid! My room was in the topfloor and I am satisfied with what I was provided. The bed was big enough to fit 3 people, a nice couch, dressing table, tea table, 2 chairs and dustbin was in the room. The AC and the flat screened TV worked properly. The washroom had a basin and western toilet both commendably clean. The room, bed, pillow everything was very tidy. There were 2-3 plug points including the one for the TV. A clean towel and soap was provided by the hotel. The room had only one window devoid of any view and an attached balcony from which the sea was partially visible. Only the topfloor has rooms with balconies from which the sea is visible. However not all rooms are of equal size so check before finalizing the deal. The topfloor also has an open roof attached with it from where pleasant views of the sea and the coastal town could be enjoyed. The teenagers were given the room downstairs and they complained about the washroom being too small and not that tidy. I visited to see for myself and confirmed the information. The topfloor is the newest so it boasts of the best quality rooms. The lift/elevator does not work till the topfloor but one level below it and it's speed is very low. The dining hall is AC and of okay quality. The beach is just 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. During our stay our room and washroom was cleaned each day by the staff. The restaurant of this hotel serves delicious food. I tasted rice, mixed fried rice, parantha, pulses, vegetable curries, chicken, mutton, egg, prawn and all the dishes were finger licking good! Just the prawn dish was not up to the mark I felt. My advice for you is to take the topfloor rooms because they are of the best quality and also comes with partial view of the sea from the balcony. And you must taste the food of the restaurant here even if you are not staying in the hotel! The hotel does not provide any WiFi.
A revelation about West Bengal Govt Tourist Lodges
After a splendid stay at the Tourist Lodge in Darjeeling a few years back I eagerly looked forward to a great stay during a short weekend trip to Digha and I must say that I was completely satisfied. A two nights stay at this property is a reaffirmation of the fact that with a bit of effort, West Bengal Tourist lodges are capable of giving a run for money to the more renowned private hotels.
Location : A 5 min drive by car and 15 min ride by van brings one to this property located in Old Digha. The beach is approximately 200 metres from the property. It is nested in a calm neighbourhood yet very close to the main market. Some rooms offer a view of the Bay of Bengal from the balconies.
Rooms : The rooms are very spacious and have a balcony which is a big plus for drying clothes after a dip in the sea. The furniture is basic but adequate. The rooms are equipped with LCD TVs and the split air conditioners in the AC rooms work perfectly. The wash rooms are clean, equipped with geysers and also have an adjoining changing room. The bed linen & towels are clean. In a nutshell one can't complain.
Restaurant : With a capacity to accommodate 30-40 guests the restaurant is clean and has an adjoining open air seating arrangement. The food was a let down to some extent. We had tried Bengali cuisine but though tasty it was too spicy for the kids in our group and even for us. The cooks despite requests failed to scale down the spiciness.
Breakfast is complementary but with only two options : Indian B/F- Four puris and subzee English B/F- Two slices of bread and one egg (omelette / fried). One needs to pay for any extra add ons.
We had a one year old child with us and the restaurant staff were very co-operative by allowing us to use the kitchen for boiling water and preparing meals for the baby on our own. We are greatly indebted to them for this generosity.
Bar : The bar was a mixed bag of surprises. It was pleasantly stocked with hard liquor and beer (no wine though). Sadly there was no arrangement for ice!
Activities: The patio adjoining the restaurant can be a good hangout and a swing near it is the only option available for kids.
Checkout is at 11.00 hr and one needs to have a chat with the staff for late checkouts. Staff was friendly and co-operative. Credit card facility is available subject to link availability.
Tips : Don't buy mineral water from the shops across the road.
Booking : Book online through the West Bengal Tourism travel portal.
Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it. Those who have doubts of this property simply because it is Govt run can rest assured that a visit to this place would change perceptions.
I went to Digha with my wife on 8th March and stayed there for 2 nights and I found this to be a very good place to stay. This hotel is in New Digha near Nursing Home, easily accessible from Digha Railway Station. It takes 5 mins of drive from station, local vans are always available and it takes around Rs. 10 per head from Railway Station to the hotel. This hotel is located at a distance of 2. 8 kilometers from Old Digha sea beach and 1 Kilometer away from the hotel. The location of this hotel is away from the crowd which I really liked, it's surely a peaceful place but it's just that new Digha sea beach is not at a walking distance but I am sure no would mind that because you will always get vans to take you to the new Digha beach at a cost of 10 each. Rooms are good, staff are really very cooperative, the hotel is just awesome starting from beautiful entrance and with well decorated garden where you can go and spend some time along with your tea and food which can be served there in the garden to have a good experience of having food under the sky. I would surely recommend this hotel to everyone, specially to those ones who wants a peaceful place to stay because Digha is a very crowded place and you at least need a peaceful place to stay. They have a restaurant on the ground floor but the food is not very goofirst taste wise, its an area where they need to improve. It's preferred to have food from the road side dhabas if you want to get tasty food. Reception and Overall I will give 5 out of 7 to this hotel and would surely recommend this to everyone.
I must submit that I faced a horrible scenario at my first visit to this hotel. The experience was so alarming and horrendous that I was left with no other option but to leave the hotel at the very onset and go to a far better hotel with everything managed professionally and satisfactorily.
Please pay your hid to the most depressing and frustrating points mentioned below which me along with my family including my 4 years old child faced at this hotel:
At the very entry to the hotel there were no staffs available to carry the luggage to the lounge and we had to wait a long time at the gate to see the face of someone for carrying the luggage.
When we entered the hotel and presented ourselves at the reception for check-in nobody seemed to even aware of the fact that me along with my wife and little child had been standing there for more that 15 Min unattended. Nobody seemed to even care for the fact that we were in the middle of a hot afternoon tired from a long train journey and deserve to be met with a smile and hospitality. The looks on the face of the reception staff were so dejecting that we felt as if we were annoying them every moment with our presence. I want to remind the hotel of one of the very basics of hospitality which starts with first smile that you give to your guests. A guest who faces a group of blunt and dejected faces is bound to get the first blow of frustration.
After the long wait when finally the check-in formalities started I was surprised to see the tortoise speed of the staff which took more than probably 10 Min to just find out what were the formalities that needed to be done. There were 3 of the staff at the check-in counter and nobody seemed to be confident and firm regarding the system and processes involved and kept discussing among themselves about what needs to be done and who needs to do it. It was almost like a relay race with the baton being passed from one person to the other without any progress being made.
While I was doing the check-in formalities nobody seemed bothered to show the bare minimum courtesy of offering my little child and my wife to go to the room while I finish the formalities. They were very tired and my child was feeling sleepy and even then nobody cared to even offer the sofa to them for taking rest. My question to the hotel is what kind of training do you give to your staff? And what criteria do you set for them for being recruited at your hotel? Do you just bring in any one from the streets without any bare minimum knowledge of courtesy and hospitality???
Now came the room!!! It was nowhere near the pictures they gave in the booklet and was ill maintained with bad odour coming from it. My child was having nausea after entering the room such was the stench. We requested for some room spray and it took the good for nothing staffs more than 40 Min to get a room spray. When questioned on the delay the blunt reply was the hotel was full house. For the kind information I have visited many places in India during peak times and nowhere have I heard this lame excuse as the cause for delay in service.
The AC!!!! The AC was not working at the room and after enquiring the same again a relay race started and I was first told to call the room service, the room service told me to call the reception and the reception told me that I need to wait but there was no mention for how long. Our wait continued while it was already more than an hour and a half at the hotel for us without any refreshment, without any tea or rest. When no one responded for the AC we again called the reception and I was told I would be shifted to another room. On going to the other room there were more surprises!!! The door lock was not working!!!! , the sofa was torn apart and not fit for sitting. The toilet was not clean and again a horrible smell was greeting with its fists clenched. By this time my child was feeling sick from the journey and the irresponsible behaviour of the staff.
Hotel is good but they will try to dent your pocket
If you want to stay in old Digha it is worth a try. We first tried at Saikatabas and then Sea hawk but didn't get good room there that's why came to this hotel. Initial look & feel is very good. There is a small lawn, birds, fishes in aquarium. Rooms are spacious, clean. To go the beach it is very close but sea is not that clearly visible from room. Staff are friendly but they will ask for tips separately, one group who work in morning shift and another group who work in evening shift.
Thankfully we made the mistake for only once and had all of our further lunch, breakfast & dinner at that outside restaurant named 'Khaobo Jatone'. Excellent food was served. We booked an AC room and just entering the room and keeping the AC on, felt that AC is not needed it's becoming too cool. And cancelled the AC of the room by submitting the remote control at reception. AC was on for hardly 20-30mins. Next day they charged Rs. 200 for the duration AC was on, unbelievable.
