Recently visited Itachuna Rajbari on a weekend family trip. We took three rooms - kakababu, pishemosai and boro pishi. All were first floor rooms . Boropishi was in andarmahal and thev rest two at bahir Mahal. Kakababu is bit small in size and boropishi was royalty at its best. All the attached bathrooms were huge. Boropishi had fridge in the room The evening guided tour was super and was laced with history. The evening Sandhya arati was serene Special mention the flute player is magical Last but not the least, food was amazing. Never had such delicious Bengali food in any restaurant

We stayed for one night at this beautiful property at Choto Boudi room and had a fantastic experience. It is quite a well maintained property and small aspects like the evening property tour, Arati, flute during evening snacks and morning wakeup call with tea really differentiate the experience from any other holiday. Pros: Hospitality and warmth of the Itachuna team Amazing authentic Bengali food Rooms with old world charm that have pictures of the erstwhile resident members of the family Highly talented flute player Presence of a very nice boutique and scope to buy paintings/handicrafts made by local students Cons: Nothing that I can think of. Only one suggestion: it would be great if an option for having limited/ light comfort food for dinner could be provided Overall, a wonderful stay!

Extremely hospitable stay at an old zamindar house (not actually a palace, as explained by the local guide). Pluses : 1. Awesome homely food in large quantities. Best homely food i have ever had outside my home. The dining room is grand and the serving makes you feel like a king. 2. The staff are extremely well behaved, friendly, welcoming and helpful. 3. Premises are extremely clean and well maintained. 4. Soft music playing at all times in the courtyard. 5. Wifi is good. 6. Food prices are reasonable compared to the quantities provided. 7. View from terrace is good, and is only allowed during the guided tour in the evening. 8. Evening Aarti (Worship) in the temple is good. Minuses: 1. Food options are limited, but it is understandable considering the remote location of the place. 2. The 4 huts are located quite a distance from the main building, and is not advisable for elderly people. The area around the huts are too bushy, and there are a lot of insects/ants around. The place may become very muddy in case it rains. If you want to feel the royalty of the stay, then it is better to avoid the huts. 3. Guided tour in the evening is more of a marketing ploy, than an actual peek into the history of the place. Overall, it is a very good experience if you stay in the main building. Must visit for the food and hospitality of the staff.

Very bad experience. Immediately the title of rajbari should be withdrawn. If someone goes for a weekend relaxation, he will return with a horrible experience. Why aircondition should not run for 24hours when you are taking such huge amount of money. Moreover for lunch and dinner they are taking Rs 700 for veg thali. One has to pay extra for fish/chicken/mutton. Rooms are not spacious as like Rajbari. they are very small. Bathrooms are also not that of great quality. 2 hours in the evening and 2 hrs in the morning you will not have any A/C. Just imagine you have gone for relaxation in the summer . How will u feel. Staff behaviour not bad, but also not praiseworthy. Quality of food is good, but you can get the same quality in much less amount and with a better ambience. Overall I will not recommend anyone to visit Itachuna . However if someone wants to taste a bitter experience, they can go

Actually this is not a Rajbari. No taste of rajbari. Don't go in summer. Air condition will remain off for long period. Amount they are taking is really not worthy. Staff behaviour so so. Why Rajbari? Rooms are not all spacious and elegant, but neat and clean. If you start your dinner, and cross 10.30 pm, suddenly you will find AC is turned of. Horrible experience to go in summer

Coming from London, I had wanted to live this experience for a while now. Unfortunately because of the Omicron pullava, we had to cancel our booking in Dec 2021. But in 2022, we made it! When I first entered the grounds, I was immediately fascinated with the well kept gardens, lush green foliage and the array of colours from the diverse tropical flowers in all their glory. The marble floors were clean and polished so that they literally shone! Two ladies approached us and were polite and courteous and because we were early we sat in the cool gallery, sipping lime water served by them, sheltered from the heat. After check in all the timings were explained in detail by office staff. Our rooms were very clean. Bathrooms catered for both Western and Eastern habits and the furniture brought home the past glory of the Raj. It was all well organised and beautiful! Lunch was exquisitely laid out in the royal dining hall, decorated with chandeliers and flowers in vases, crocheted table-covers all in regal red!! The staff were polite and attentive and the manager himself came over to speak to the guests. The food thali is vegetarian and again laid out for a king. I personally LOVE home-cooked food which wasn't spicy or greasy, so for me it was absolutely perfect! We ordered fish as extra because how can you come to Bengal and not have fish! Sacrilege!! The palace tour takes place from 4:30pm.and must not be missed! The evening aarti is also a sight to behold and must not be missed. Overall if you want a couple of days of peace and quiet away from the pollution and noise alongwith home comfort Bengal-style, this is the place to be. Smoking and alcohol are not allowed so please come prepared for that instead of moaning later!! They have a gallery and a shop on site with beautiful items on display made by locals. We bought some rings and stoles and my mum bought some "bori"(lentil pellets) and ghee- also made by locals. I also bought a painting by a local teacher who holds art classes for children every Sunday.

Overall 2 days coverage with Performance was satisfactory but very limited food and too less items. Not happy with the breakfast, Lunch and dinner. In my life time for the first time i experienced that desert is limited to 1 small size rosogolla, 4spoons of sweet curd. The chutni container (mini) really made us laugh significantly. While we asked to Puri, the service person came with 2 puris in the container :P Strange item selector, Sweet Pulao without any gravy item in the dish. Room is so so. No cleaning until we checked-out. AC supply is within stipulated time but our connection was discontinued 1 hour before without any notification. Overall nothing great, overall manpower is very very limited. I would summarize telling that this is one of the unique example/sample of doing business in the cheapest way.

Another winter knocking our door. If you plan 1 or 2 night spend in a sea side then Mondermoni your best destination. Amazing Bay of Bengal always touch with you. Clear sky, blue-green sea, lots of greenery and marvelous beach. your holiday became dermic. Most of the traveler confused where to stay. Last Saturday (08.11.2021) we stay at hotel NILKANTHA. It's a mesmerizing experience. We stay in Room No, 208 (1st floor). 180 degree horizontal wide sea view and exquisite tide experience we can't forgot. Room-Balcony and Sea nothing more. Amazing experience. Enjoy your trip. Soumendra Darbar

Perfect blend of majesty, originality and heritage. Less gloss, more substance. An historical building, grand and old charm from outside, complete with all contemporary amenities inside the rooms. Staff are exceptionally good, trustworthy and helpful. Well planned arrangements, with lunch, guided tour, puja and arati, tea and snacks, flute recital and dinner. Ideal for those wanting to get a taste of life here, unsuitable for loud groups and those whose entertainment is synonymous with alcohol. (They allow self bought liquor consumption in rooms, but no food).

The visit was to get a taste of royalty. Pros: 1. Excellent behaviour of people 2. Touch & feel of history Cons: 1. The booking experience - Response and behaviour were rude and not truthful 2. Cleanliness Another driving factor for our visit was exquisite food. But UNFORTUNATELY the food was very much average (moreover the fishes were not even cleaned properly but cooked). Overall experience could have been made much luxurious by still keeping the historical feels. For e.g. 1. The room and bathroom amenities could have been made much improved. 2. For evening tea we had to go to "Cha Ghar" (tea room). It was too shabby and walkway was also not well lit. 3. The rooms and bathroom were full of insects. 4. Even the balcony was not well lit without any fan working, hence sitting there in the evening & enjoying a quality family time was impossible. 5. Most of the extra paid food (over & above thali) were poorly cooked. For e.g. Mutton was too hard, Pabda fishes were having full of blood inside those, Chicken quality was worst, Pomfret was made extremely spicy. The only good part was Bhetki shorshe. 6. The evening tour of the Rajbari could have been made much more interesting. A light & sound event on the "Thakur dalan" with sitting arrangements on that lawn as well as the balconies could have made this a star attraction.
