A home away from home

6.6/7
Posted 8 May, 2018

A fantastic stay with all the amenities, hospitable staff, friendly gesture and awesome food. Strongly recommend. A must stay for everyone. Probably one of the finest property in Shantiniketan. Each and staff is cooperative with a lovely helpful gesture. For a relaxed weekend, the tourist lodge is one best destination.

Food quality and quantity was excellent

6.1/7
Posted 31 May, 2016

I had visited this hotel with my family. The hotel was located inside the city. I didn’t find any difficulties at the hotel. The appearance of the hotel was new renovated. The check in and checkout service was done on time. The behaviour of staff's was good. The room service was good. Lift facility was not available at the hotel. All facility was provided in the room. The room was neat and clean. The food quality and quantity was excellent. The hotel had provided variety of vegetarian, south Indian and north Indian food. The best part of the hotel was food. Parking facility was available at the hotel. I went to this hotel by my own vehicle. I would recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers.

Very good government tourist lodge

5.0/7
Posted 18 Dec, 2015

Either book your rooms online or visit the West Bengal Government tourism center in BBD Bagh, Kolkata. All AC rooms are situated in the cottages, while the non-AC large and small double bed rooms are in the main building. All rooms look & feel alike, I. E ., same design and wall colours, TV and furniture. The only difference is in the size of rooms and AC or non-AC The lodge is good and very simple, with good food quality in a limited menu choice. It's very good for people seeking a quiet & peaceful holiday away from the city. The lodge has a large compound with its own garden Plan your arrival and departure times keeping in mind, the check-in (12 noon) and checkout (11 am) time. Breakfast is complimentary (for two heads). Place your dinner order by 5:30 - 6:30 pm. The staff in the reception and dining area/room service are good, everyone's behaviour is very satisfactory.

Nice heritage but service was very poor

6.6/7
Posted 24 Sep, 2015

When I went there I stayed in this hotel. Hotel has fantastic location. Hotel has old staff and they did not maintain time. They wanted tips in any time. But the receptionist was very helpful. The restaurants food was excellent. Room and attach Bath room was neat and clean. No facilities were there. Every thing was more valuable. Overall performing of the hotel was average. This was my 3 days experience about this hotel. I wish you to go there and enjoy by the too cheaply.

Fantastic food & fine services; average rooms

3.8/5
Posted 27 Feb, 2015

Hotel was nice but the food was excellent. It is just a standard hotel. It is around 5 km away from the station. Pick-up and drop facility was there but it was costly so we arranged it on our own. Rooms were good with AC, flat TV, attached bathroom, neat and clean bed sheets and toilets, etc. Basically you did not see the people staying there, they usually coming there and moving on. Food was fantastic. It was traditional kind of food. They arranged the food from outside. Location wise and look wise, it was good. Food service was very good and rest of service was fine. Reception services were good. Rooms were average. Activity part was very good. Santiniketan is a very good place to visit.

Good place to stay at

4/5
Posted 11 Jun, 2015

We had stayed in an A/C. Cottage. The room, though not very spacious, is fine. The attached bathroom is quite big in size and clean. The room service, bed linens are okay The lodge was very conveniently located near the Visva Bharati Campus, offers access to all the important places in Santiniketan A/C cottages are a little expensive (Rs. 2000+), but is very much needed during the most of the year. The non A/C rooms (Rs. 1100+) are also good which are housed in a storied building The A/C dining Hall offers good food at a reasonable price.

Polite staff & good parking facility; tasty food

4/5
Posted 5 Dec, 2014

The hotel was centrally located. There was parking facility. The staff behaviours were polite and decent. The appearance of the hotel from inside and outside was good. The room given was very neat, clean and spacious. It had all the basic appliances with proper functioning. There was no delay during check-in and check-out. The food was very tasty and delicious. Cost of the food was reasonable. There were no indoor and outdoor games. It was relaxation trip. It was not a satisfactory experience and would not recommend this hotel to others.

Average hotel with average service

3.4/5
Posted 7 Mar, 2014

It is a government tourist place. I traveled here with my family, near about 14 people, and more or less it is an average place to stay. We preferred to take our food outside only. We booked doubleheader room, it was okay. Rooms are manageable. I stayed for two days and cleanliness was good. You have to arrange your own taxi for visiting different sites. Room service was there, tea was served. Location is nice. It is near to the Shanti Niektan house. It is just adjacent to the main road only. A small lawn is there. It is near to University campus. Shanti Niketan is a nice place. Overall an average hotel .
