“nice place in a remote location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

I stayed in Golden retreat for 15 days... the ambience is nice, it is built like a majestic palace. I offers indoor games including snooker, biliards, etc. The swimming pool is nicely built but closes at 8 in the evening which is a minus point for, also the lighting in the evening near the pool area is not good. The gym is decent with basic facilities.

The view from the room gives a lush green view which is quite relaxing.

The food is nice and the restraunt offers lot of varities but is bit over-prized for a single traveller.

I used to stay at Golden retreat during my business visits to Haldia. It is clearly the best hotel in Haldia. The ambience is great with neat and tidy rooms and hosiptable staff. It gives a resort-like feel with lush green garden and a pool in the backyard. The restaurant China Garden serves hygenic and tasteful food. The breakfast basket used to be very good. All in all, a great place to stay at, away from the hustle bustle of the city.

Hotel is located ideally close to the Haldia port, which is probably the reason you are in Haldia.
Haldia is abt 3 hrs drive from Calcutta airport. Always hire a cab for return journey as it is not easy to get a cab in haldia.

The hotel is built like a palace, but not maintained like one. The hotel also runs a hotel management institute, hence you will see a lot of young crowd in the hotel specially in the evenings.

If you are a sea food lover, do try the betki and hilsa fish, you will love it.

Hotel also has a swimming pool, and try to get a room facing the pool.

Wifi service is available in the rooms (paid) as well as in the lobby (free).
Room rent includes breakfast, but this rule might change depending on the amount of guests in the hotel.

Stayed here on a business trip to Haldia. By far, this is the best place to stay in Haldia. Very good for corporate business travelers. Has good conferencing facilities with a well equipped bar. Restaurant also serves good food & has variety of food to offer. When I say it is good, it means for a place like Haldia, to have this hotel is good.
It has been quite a few years that the hotel was built, so you can easily notice that the rooms require maintenance. Service was bad although people manning the front desk was always eager to help. The good thing was that they do have faciity for driver's accommodation at a very nominal charge & car parking is free.

Room Tip: Ask for a corporate discount when booking
