We stayed for 4 nights in this resort near Murti. They have 3 cottages each with 4 rooms. We stayed on the ground floor. Every room has an individual balcony with a table and 2 chairs. The rooms are very tastefully done and are very clean. The furniture is very nice with bright curtains and clean bed spreads. Every room... More

Linen was clean and rooms beautiful. If u want to visit Gorumara National Park, inform the hotel in advance or they will charge you an... More

We stayed here with family for 2 nights. The hotel is well equipped and has very nice comfortable rooms. The resort itself is quite spacious and has a swimming pool and gym too. Rooms are well organised with balconies. The food needs to be ordered in advance and you may not have many options on the same, but get good... More

I and a Norwegian friend of mine had a most enchanting experience at this hotel. The hotel had just open for the season the day before our arrival , so we two were the only guests - but I did not mind at all. I presume that when the hordes descend on this place, it might be quite noisy and... More

We just stayed there for about 2 nights. To be fair, this was just after a cyclone hit the area so we can see a lot of downed trees etc. The service was very strange - the staff doesn't seem to know what they are doing. The food is always a bit late. We can never find the staff when... More

It was our fourth trip to Dooars. This time we stayed in River Wood Forest Retreat, near Lataguri for the first time. Located in South Dhupjhura, adjacent... More
