A nice and cleaned hotel. Probably the best in Shantiniketan .Location is good Nice flower and vegetable garden. Neat and blean.Food is little costly but tasty.Staff are good.If you want to take rest and visit Shanibarer haat only then this is the best place to stay.

We are glad to know your opinion about our Guest House. We supply fresh food daily that's why it's little costly but from 1.4.2017, we have revised our price and guests may get food now at much cheaper rate than earlier prices. We do hope that you will visit again very soon.

We have visited during Basanta Utsab 2017, 3 rooms booked for same price. Although, two of them were quite good and similar but the third one was not up to the mark and not comparable at all with those rooms. Specifically Room no. 8 should not be booked with the same price with which Room no. 9 and 10 should...

Stayed in this guest house for two days from 20.12.16 to 21.12.16 along with my brothers family . Its close proximity to the main tourist attractions of Shantiniketan was a guiding factor for the choice . We were allotted room nos.9 &10 at the back @2200/- per night ,per room. A common balcony overlooking the kitchen garden adds to the...

It was after a long day of traveling that we'd reached the guest house, and I was blown away by how beautiful it was! The location is a bit off from the university, but it's more than made up by the brilliant garden and the staff. The garden covers most of the property, and it's a sight to behold in...

Room 1 was large and specious, but room 2 is small and shabby. Signs of damps on the walls. But the rooms and toilet were...

Glad to know your pointwise observation, now food prices are moderate with outside prices but you must appreciate that we provide 6 to 7 items in our meals, which perhaps you will not get in other places and we always provide fresh foods daily as we don't keep extra quantity of previous meals for the next day distribution.

This is a guest house so don't expect the benefits of a 4/5 star hotel and the same is mentioned in all their communications. So if you want to stay in a homely environment with simple bengali food and loads of peace and serenity then this is it. The guest house welcomes you with a beautifully crafted garden. The rooms...

Its a guest house only, so resort or 3/4/5 star hotel lovers need to check before booking. Though its nice and the location is good even the manager and the cook both are very good. They lack in basic hospitality rules, amenities and cleanliness. The inclusive breakfast is very sub-standard and it is fixed they don't offer exception. So it...

We stayed for 2 nights, with our children aged 6 months and 3 years. We were looking for something convenient, clean, calm and convivial and were very much satisfied. The garden is beautiful. The food is good. I warmly recommend it.
