Bit obviously poorly maintained. Such a big property. You feel like you are in a palace. But Lawns are not taken care of. You can tell many things against. But can't get any in this price range. You won't get variety of food but food is good. Room is spacious. Staffs have become cordial. I frequent there for many many... More

I stayed here once in 2013. Its spaceous, location is good, staff are good but service and maintenance are pathetic. Lizards are roaming in toilets and giving creepy feeling once you enter into it. Food taste was above average.

Decent Rooms, but pathetic service. This is a government tourist lodge, with decent rooms and good space. It is quite centrally located. The only demerit is its service. Very poor service. They cant serve when there are many guests.

In spite of being a WBTDC property, it is a well appointed and well maintained Tourist Lodge. It is a bit away from the humdrum of the city, but that is a plus point. The staff were helpful and courteous, helping us with our baggage. Whether you book on line or walk in, the checking in is at par with... More
