The hotel is located beside the NH. So its quite easily accessible. The food provided here is excellent. The food is homely. Not too much spicy. The staff here are very friendly and courteous. They received us warmly. They are the only hotel on Daringbadi which as their own in-house restraunt. Also they provide a kit that contains all the necessary things like soap, comb, shampoo. So no need to look after these small things in Daringbadi. They also provide pick up drop & sight seeing at very nominal rates. I checked the price with other hotels but Utopia prices were genuine. The owner too is very friendly. She comes to the hotel every evening and talka with the tourists everyday and takes feedback.
Great budget hotel at a reasonable price in Daringbadi. Located centrally inside the market in Daringbadi. Well behaved staff. Cleanliness and furnishing are quite impressive. They serve freshly cooked homely preparation as per your order. They even make custom made dishes as per requirement. The only hotel which has an in-house restaurant that only provides food for the tourists. So no one has to go outside and have food. Even the other restaurants in Daringbadi are very unhygienic. So I would recommend every other fellow tourists to choose this hotel and have food from their in-house restaurant. The price of the food is also very cheap as per the quality of the food they are providing. They also provide a kit in which they provide all the essential toiletries. Loved the stay with family.…
This hotel is centrally located in Daringbadi. That is the main advantage. Staffs are prompt and cooperative. Food is very homely and hygenic. Would love to stay here again if got a chance to vist Daringbadi again.
Hotel is located on the main road and hence conveniently located. Rooms are clean, good comfortable beds, water closet moderate. Rooms are stuffy as there is no cross ventilation. Installation of one exhaust fan is suggested. Restaurant food quality is not palatable. However, nearby shops are there and reasonably good food is available . Hotel staffs are helpful.
We have visited Daringbari very recently. As the Eco Resort was in renovation, we booked UTOPIA. The overall experience was good. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. No bugs problem!!.. Even they provided free wifi service to the rooms in 1st floor but not 2nd floor. Its restaurant is the ground floor and provides quality foods. You have to order everything previously as the cook goes before you come for dinner or lunch. For snacks also limited options are there ( which is very much common in remote areas). Breads are not available in this place, so you have to adjust with puri-sabji. Even there are no other shops for your breakfast/lunch/dinner. The Hotel will provide you pick and drop facility from Brahmapur (it costs around 28000 INR for non AC Bolero & 31000 for AC Bolero car). For local sight seeing you have to book yet another car which will take you to places like waterfall, sunset point, lovers point, coffee plantation, Eco park, Pine tree forest. a total of 1 day tour is necessary for these. you can also go for local parks which will give you beautiful scenic pleasure and wonderful view of sunset on the hills. You can easily walk there or take an auto (total INS 50). A total 4 days trip is necessary (with 2 nigh stay in Daringbari).…
Daringbari being at 3000ft the place is blessed with natural beauty.. But an average town and been maintained averagely by local administration. Utopia is one of satisfactory places to park while in Daringbadi. Rates not withstanding take a surge on non availability of accommodation. Please pre-book to avoid last minute compromise on your stay
I stayed in this hotel in January' 2017 with my friends for 3 days. The food they offer is horrible. Stale fish very spicy cooking. Quality of rice is not good. They gave butter toast with stale cold breads from refrigerator. Room service is too bad. They did not clean the room themselves we had to push them again and again to clean the rooms. Price is not reasonable comparing to food and stay they are offering.
We visited Daringbadi on 30th and 31st of December. As rooms were not available in ECO DEER resort on 30th, our travel agent booked a Dormitory for us at Utopia. We arrived at Utopia at around 1 pm on 30th after a 6 hours journey to be informed that no reservation had been made for us. We called our agent who confirmed that money had been transferred in September, yet the lady who owns the place continued to maintain that no such reservation had been made. What irked us even more was her attitude. She had a permanent smirk on her face and was having fun at our predicament. We also received feedback from local people that this is something that has happened to other guests too as when demand increases, they conveniently let out the rooms at higher rates to other guests. As there are very few options at Daringbadi, I would suggest you opt for some place where people stick to their commitments. Location wise also it is not all that great and the rooms looked very small. We finally had to travel to Baliguda and stayed at Santhosh Bhawan which turned out for the better as the rooms were much more spacious and cleaner…
Rooms are small but clean. Location is not so good. Service was not bad. Rooms @ 2nd floor are better. If you want, they will arrange car for sigte seen. They have a very small inhouse restaurant but limited food items.
please avoid it as this is very bad in terms of servicd as well as room quality..the foods are even worse.. I cancelled my booking and was lucky to find accomodation in DEERS ECO RESORT.. Their behaviour was also rude and not at all professional..Its best if you avoid it..
