Excellent service and behaviour by staff

Posted 13 Aug, 2015

I loved the service here provided by the staff, I am really surprised by seeing this type of a behaviour by staff members to the residents I just loved it. I also suggest all persons to check-in these hotels only where the services are good. The food was also amazing. I enjoyed my vacation a lot and great experience here.

Serenity redefined and cordial staff

Posted 25 Nov, 2014

After a thorough research we zoomed in on Prokriti Bon Bungalow for a mid-week sojourn at Bolpur. We had a memorable stay at Prokriti during November 12th to 15th, 2014 . . Prokriti Bon Bungalow, located closer to 'Prantik' station is synonymous with solitude. Nestled by Sonajhuri forest at one end and tucked away from the bustle of busy Bolpur, Prokriti is like soothing balm for the frayed nerves of sutured souls. The small patch of garden around the resort is very well tended with many leafy trees and potted plants. I also discovered a fruiting olive tree in the garden. Bereft of any frills, the rooms are spacious with a doubled and quite a clean attached toilet. The room did have a TV though we had never used it. We chose room nos. 08 and 09 on the first floor. The AC rooms had a common balcony overlooking Sonajhuri forest. Such 'no frill' philosophy of the resort has squarely contributed to its price-point making it attractive for the budget conscious. The doubled AC rooms with breakfast for two cost us Rs. 1550/- (inclusive of all taxes). We always went down to the small dining hall of the resort for food. We had toasted bread, eggs and rosogolla and luchi-sabji and sweets in breakfast. The food at the resort was affordable and prepared well almost in the lines of home cooked varieties. Veg curries such as alu-posto (potato in sauce of poppy seeds), alu-kopi (potato & cauliflower curry), Dale (lentils) and non-veg dishes such as chicken curry and 'kochi panthar jhol' (mutton gravy) satiated our palates well. Chicken pakora served as evening snacks was savoured by all Mr. Nibir Bandyopadhyay (mobile: 09434249688), owner of Prokriti goes beyond business to run the resort. I truly appreciated his concern for the guests " the day before we landed at the resort, I had received a call from Nibirbabu trying to ascertain our time of arrival and whether he would arrange for our lunch! The resort staff were cordial in their behaviour and always eager to help the guests. Prokriti is located away from the 'happening' places of Bolpur " hence, one would need a vehicle to go around the town. But if your agenda of tourism includes communing with nature, watching the young sun with golden hues inching above the far out coconut trees, soul searching under a starry canopy in the evening and ambling across the forest to head towards the tribal village nearby, you would hit the bull's eye at Prokriti!

Poor room maintenance, poor service

Posted 3 Oct, 2014

We went to Shantiniketan with our friends to have a beautiful experience. I saw the images on the net and fell in love with Prokriti Bon Bangalow. Thus booked three non AC bedrooms and one AC bedroom thinking we'll have a wonderful experience. When I walked into room No 1, I was shocked to see ants crawling all over the bed and on the floor. It was an ugly sight and frankly very disgusting. They did not have any bed sheet in any of the rooms but just a bedcover, no coverlets, just one towel to share between two people and just one extremely helpful and a cordial attendant named Shuvo who was looking after not only the reception, the rooms, the food service but also to all other requirements of all the guests of every other room (the place was almost full). There was this maid who was called in to clean the ants from the bed and the room on requesting her to clean the room she bluntly stated that ants could not be swept away by a broom stick. On complaining again in the evening the owner kindly shifted us to another room which thankfully had no ants! I will never go back!

Excellent food and cordial staff but average rooms

Posted 7 Aug, 2014

It's just excellent place to stay and such a lovely romantic environment with Sonajhuri Jungel surrounding the hotel. Hotel is constructed in a resort form trees, flowers all around. Pathway is made of small pebbles, walking on that is so fantastic but the rooms has to be little better because there were no furniture other then bed and bed were not that comfortable. Food is excellent like home cook food and staff is very cordial. If you want to go for a quite romantic holiday or week end its just perfect. Hotel also provides parking space and good place to be during weekends.

Staff behaviour was codial; below avearge rooms

Posted 2 Jun, 2014

My overall stay was nice at this hotel. Staff behavior was cordial and friendly. Services were average. Food quality was below average. Rooms were up to the mark. Room service was available. TV and other basic facilities were there in the room. I stayed for two days in this hotel. Garden area and small open space was present. Car parking facility was available. I traveled via train here and it was a nice trip. Hotel is located about 2 km from the university. Location was very nice. Appearance was nicely maintained outside. I made advance booking by depositing money in their bank account. Online booking is not yet available. Reception was cooperative. Shantineketan place is best location for two days vacation. I can recommend this hotel.

Excellent food & hospitable nature of the people.

Posted 24 Jan, 2014

Off to a refreshing trip to Santiniketan over the weekend, made me land at this gem of a hotel. No idea as to what the place was like, it turned out to be like a breath of fresh air, in the middle of Sonajhuri forest surrounding it on all sides. Quiet, in the midst of nature, yet beautiful and heritage looks just was a fascinating experience. The only downside if I must pick any would be the rooms, which could have been a better furnished, but apart from that, the excellent food and the hospitable nature of the people was just ideal for the weekend retreat.
