I was here in January. It was a relaxation trip with family. It was a very good stay. There was a friendly atmosphere. It had a very beautiful location. The appearance of the hotel was very gorgeous. The booking and front office was very good. It was booked online. Rooms there were spacious. Toilets were neat clean. It was well maintained hygienically. The overall service provided was very good. They were well prepared to welcome us. There was complimentary breakfast, which was very good.
We choose this hotel as it was very near to the cellular jail The approach to the hotel is not good. It says it is sea view but we cannot get into the sea. From the first look of the hotel from the outside we did not like it. It is literally an apartment converted into a hotel Once you enter the hotel It is very good. The staff is very courteous. They do not have any cooking there and once you order they get the food from the nearby restaurant. The food quality and quantity were good. There is a common dining hall where the food will be arranged.
Hi I Am Ranjit Port Blair is tourist destination here is a ever green forests and beaches here come in by ships and aeroplane The Shelter nice hotel in city walk able distance water sport complex cellular jail ferry jetty here hotel is a nice location in front of hotel Mountain herriet North bay is a view point 20 rupees note background chatham saw mill hotel staff nice Mr. Alam murgesh uttam home feel stay nice quality food provide here.
We stayed for one night on our way to Neil Island. The room has a great view of the sea. Cab/Auto would cost INR100 to reach the hotel. Inform front desk in advance for the ship ticket to Neil or Havelock. Staff is really caring and helpful. Water sports complex is walk able distance from the hotel. The room was clean and bed was good. The Nest hotel is on the first floor and is much more expensive and the Shelter is on the 2nd floor with a better view from the balcony. Overall a great stay.
Last dussehra we went for Andaman tour, we went by sea in M. V nicobar ship, had an complete different experience right from the start of ticket booking, as it was my first experience in booking a ship ticket at stars(ship ticketing advance reservation system)from Kolkata to port Blair in 2nd class cabin, about 2days of sailing in the sea, and we reached Port Blair. Booked this hotel online 40days in advance due to its pictures of amazing sea view from the hotel, as we reached. Received an warm welcome from the very professional. Helpful and attentive staff and management. Its an small hotel with about 6 rooms, we stayed in the deluxe room with breakfast included. Rooms were perfect for relaxation, beautiful sea view and are airy, spacious, nicely decorated. Wash-rooms were perfect as well with new and clean tiles flooring. Location was good, about 1 to 2km from the city centre, lot of variety of eateries are available nearby the hotel area. Cellular jail, marina park and marine museum were also pretty close, about to 2 to 3km or less. At night I just took a chair and enjoyed the fresh air of the sea along with its view and calmness from the balcony with the free WiFi connectivity of the hotel. Perfect relaxation place.
It's a decent spending plan loft disregarding the ocean. The perspective of the ocean, Ross Island and Mount Harriet is astonishing. The rooms are enormous and slick, clean with fundamental luxuries. A proposal is to have pot and tea sacks in the rooms. Rest it is a Mobile separation from the breakwater to Ross Island. It is 5 min separation to fundamental business sector I. E. Aberdeen via Auto. They charge 40 bucks for Market or Sagarika from here. Despite, the fact that the lodging is not on the main road The breakfast is home cooked and is great. They can add slice natural products and so on to signify the breakfast menu. The staff is truly decent here, they help you with whatever questions you have. The sustenance is gotten from close-by inns from where you can arrange nourishment by your decision. It's not a lodging for every stay, where you get sustenance cooked from here however, the adjacent eatery nourishment is sufficiently shoddy with a decent taste.
Outside hotel appearance is very good. Inside the room there was like homely environment, balcony view was very beautiful. There was kitchen attached to the room, the amenities were good, nature beauty was seen from the room balcony. The service of the hotel was excellent and the staff behave very well. Sea view was seen from the room and we were able to feel the breeze. Regarding food they didn't prepare in the hotel, they use to bring it from outside. Sight seeing was not arranged.
