Ive been visiting Shantiniketan for years and we usually stay here. At every point of time, I have found it to be well maintained. The Staff are courteous. The bungalows are spacious. What I like best is the food is authentic Bengali home food and not oily or what you'd find in a usual restaurant. Safe and great place to... More

The government run tourist lodge is best property in town. Don't expect star hotel facilities in Bolpur. But its clean, affordable and centrally located. Has adequate space and parking. Food is also not very bad. Apart from one odd recently introduced home stays by private individuals, this is the best place in Bolpur. Book on the net at WBTDC site

Conveniently located. Enough car parking space. We stayed for two nights in one of the cottages which are now renovated and good. Bathroom is very basic but clean and big in size. TV and AC worked fine. Food menu gives very limited choice but quality of the preparations are good. Staffs were courteous. Overall, the Government property is recommendable.
