This is a very unsafe property and doesn't have proper cleanliness or security. It's totally unguarded at night with no one to call for. Also, the rooms have transparent windows and full of bugs, lizards, etc. And unclean bed sheets. Also, in the night unexplained sounds, knocks and annoying noises can be heard on the doors and windows... please stay away!!

Came here in Feb 1st week 2019 and had a very bad experience. Please do check their kitchen. Bedsheet had a hole and they didn't change it and I had booked the AC cottage. Such a waste of time and money.

We stayed there on 28th and 29th jan 2018. I stayed at this place earlier also. This hotel is very good as location wise as you can easily visit sonajhuri haat ( on Sunday) or Amar kutir. It’s only walking distance. Hotel is having a very big ground and open space. Pet friendly. We went with our Shih Tzu - Bhutu and he really enjoyed playing here and there. Only this facility made our trip enjoyable. Other than that maintenance is very poor. Bathroom fittings are not working properly. Foods are very bad. But you will not have any choice to go out at night and have food as it is not near to locality. Foods are expensive as well. Not at all worth for money. We have not seen any professional approach from any of the hotel stuff. Good thing about the hotel is, it is situated inside the nature and Saturday also some local people sits out side with their handicrafts work and prices of the product is very cheaper than outside of the market.

I went there in Feb,2017 and booked a AC cottage for 1500. It worth the price. First of all great ambiance. Very cozy rooms with beautiful clean decoration. Food are awesome, I can say I had the best khichuri her. Foods are very fresh room service is very good. The hotel compound has a small market of local people for handcrafted cloths and decorative materials and the market is open only Saturdays and Sundays of every week. This hotel is also very close to Shiniketan and Khoai Hatt, actually in between. Nobody would regret staying her.

A nice property in a great location is being ruined due to lack of maintenance. The lawn grasses r not being shredded transforming it to wild grasses. No intercom facilities available the staffs doesn't have any hesitation to tell u to call from ur mobile number to hotel reception whenever u need. Make a habit to drink hot tea before u go bcoz they will ask u to give back the flask as soon they serve u tea or coffee. The only thing they are still maintaining is the room rent which haven't gone down along with the services.
