A serene place right on the banks of Rupnarayan River. All rooms face the River so, no need to worry about view while booking. Comfortable well maintained rooms, cordial staff and good quality food at reasonable price. Well maintained lawns, swimming pool and walkways make the stay even more pleasant. Very good stay arrangement for drivers

We were a group of 4 people, booked two rooms (1 deluxe and 1 superior) and stayed for one night. Check in process was smooth, they asked for ID cards, complete vaccination certificates and checked for temperature, from each one of us. One staff guided us to our rooms and helped us settle in (some towels/toiletries were provided on request). Things we did not like: The rooms looked a little old and some furniture edges here and there were coming off. Some of the furnishings in our rooms (sofa cover, bed cover, pillow covers, curtains) were permanently stained, which did not look comfortable. But, the staff were extremely cooperative, they changed some of the sheets on our request. The AC remote did not seem to be working, but the temp was set at 23/25°c, so we managed by using the main switch. Other small things like only black tea sachets were provided in the room( no option for coffee/other tea types), toilet dustbin foot-push was not working. In total, the property, particularly some rooms on the ground/first floor could do with a facelift. Also, safety precautions w.r.t. covid risks are one's own responsibility. Pool is open and is usually crowded. The property was almost fully booked for the weekend, so there was a lot of rush during the breakfast time. Although, it felt good to be among fellow travellers after a very long time, but since covid is still a matter of concern, certain restrictions/monitoring compliance could be added. Things we loved: The location - and design of the entire property. The riverside promenade beside the Rupnarayan was perfect for early morning and evening strolls. We were also delighted to spot several gangetic dolphins in the river, right from the benches on the pathway. The lush lawns and seating provided was perfect for evening tea and snacks. The restaurant - which had limited but delicious dishes. We ordered two types of Pulao, chicken makhanwala, kadhai chicken, malai kofta, plain rice, alu posto, alu dum, etc to name a few, for lunch and dinner. All of the dishes were very good both quantity and quality wise. We opted for room service for lunch and dinner. The breakfast buffet had three types of options - sandwich, upma, luchi/cholar dal and tea coffee etc. A few options like dosa, alu paratha, etc could be added, but again, what was available was good taste-wise. Overall, we had a good time and feel a few improvements could be made, given the price points of the rooms. We look forward to revisting in the future.

location is good, visited with family 11-12 sept, but 2km road to hotel main road is a hell...no road basically, no maintenance, pools are dirty, rooms r having no basic facility like a good wardrobe, side table, chairs...foods r costly. complementary breakfast is very ordinary and unhealthy. They charge me Rs 96/- for 2 bottles of water 1litre each...what the hell is this?? How can anybody be so cruel and ruthless to charge so heavily for drinking water..???

A very relaxing weekend getaway at Sonar Bangla Kolaghat with delicious food and a mesmerizing view. The property is very well maintained. Thd staff are well behaved and helpful. They attend to the guests personally even during rush hours. We took the superior delux room on the first floor which had a view of the river. The room was very spacious with a large balcony. I would recommend this place for short weekend trips with family and friends. Word of advice: a little fine tuning is needed. For instance, change the sofa covers and chairs as these have undergone natural wear and tear; Cover the AC pipes with wooden panels. The exposed pipes in the bathroom steal the beauty of the rooms. Most importantly, pursue the authorities to repair the approach road to the hotel. Overall, we spend a pleasant time together at Sonar Bangla Kolaghat.

After having worked so hard for a year without a break, you deserve some relaxation. But no sir, not for the management of Hotel Sonar Bangla Kolaghat. I had enquired about the availability of the swimming pool a week prior to our booking and was promised that it's open 8am-8pm daily. After check in I was informed that the pool will be closed for maintenance from 5 pm and will be available for use the next morning 8 a.m. onwards. Ok, so far so good. The next morning I go to the deck again and see a half empty pool and the pool manager says that it will be evening before I get to use it again. My point is why lie to us in the first place. It really hurts.
