I visited this resort with family. It is very remotely located and accessing the same was a great experience. As expected service was not that good, however, food was cooked in a traditional way and delicious. At early in the morning you will have a scenic view of Kanchanjunga from your window which changes colour as sun rises. Its an... More

I visited this hotel alongwith my family on 19 th May,2014 to 20 th May,2014 for a holiday. This hotel was earlier owned by Sonar Bangla Hotel and now has been handed to someone on lease basis. Please do not expect so much from these kind of remote located holiday destinations. But the quality of making food by the staff... More

We have a very nice experience to stay here. The best part of the hotel is its position. If weather is clear you can view Kanchenjunga from bed through its windows covering the entire front of the room. Rooms are clean and spacious. No geysure in rooms but whenever required hot water will be given to you in bucket. Food... More

Its a very nice hotel to stay with family. However rooms are not that much spacious but quality of service & food is too good. One shud try Fish tikka for regional flavour. If the hotel had been more spacious , it wud have been one of the best in darjelling overall rating. Courteous & time bound service.

We reached rishyap one cold december evening, after driving many a mile. The last few km of the road is really very bad. Steep gradients over dusty and rocky terrain. We had no reservations, but looked around and saw many hotels, some with great views and some not. Then we saw this hotel with a large courtyard in front with... More

We went to Rishyap from Pedong. The last mile to Rishyap is really the last mile before end of Universe. There is virtually no road available and our vehicle had to negotiate the steep rocky village road. But, once you reach the hotel, it is pure bliss in front of your eyes. The hotel is very basic but it has... More

The property is moderate - there was shortage of water, no gayser but rooms were OK. Specially Room Nos. 1 & 2 were specious and well maintained. From these... More

The Hotel "SONAR BANGLA" is an average hotel with good service and delicious food. I visited Rishyap with my husband and daughter early this year. The hotel staff are well behaved and soft spoken. The food is very good especially, the 'Aloo Paratha'. The first floor rooms provide a mesmerizing view of the Himalayas The maintainance of the hotel is... More

The Hotel perched on a Hill Top gives you an excellent panoramic view. The food is homely and the rooms have excellent views. The staffs are very friendly. There is a courtyard in front of the Hotel which has options for Camp Fire. The place is a nature lovers delight.
