Excellent place to stay specially with kids. Light and sound system in the garden is unique and lovely ground for playing with kids. But it is expensive in comparison with other nearby hotels. Elephant safari can be booked from here but the seat is limited. Staying in this hotel does not confirm your elephant safari per se.

The lodge is a place just like home. Neat, clean, homelike food, courteous staff and a beautiful lodge. the rear side opens up to a dense forest. The elephants come to the rear side of the lodge....it was wonderful.

Booking this lodge was the right decision. We tried to book the Holong resort at first place, but due to non availability we ended up booking with this lodge. I was very disappointed at the first place, but to my utter surprise, the lodge just the opposite of what I was thinking. The hotel should change its name from lodge... More

Stayed here for 2 nights... It is actually owned and maintained by WBTDC. Surprised to see that a govt owned place is well maintained. Rooms are ok with basic amenities. Food is average but considering remote place asking for premium service is too much. The property is well maintained and is very near to the reserve forest.

Next we tried Jaldapara Tourist Lodge and got the booking. Nearest station is Hasimara. We reached Hasimara about 11a.m. From there our driver Ajit took us on hotel. Ajit is... More

Set amid the dense forest of Jaldapara, this WBTDC property is just 500 mtrs from the Holong Safari gate. Holong Bunglow is about 4 Kms inside. WBTDC tourist lodge is a big complex with a very professional, smart and helpful manager, Mr. Sanatan and his team of equally friendly and helpful men. The lodge is set amid picturesque background with... More
