We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful heritage hotel on the tip to Ranchi. It was like stepping back in time to the colonial days. It appears predominantly favored by British travelers. It is elegantly situated just next to the railway station. What a place to be marooned in. The staff was both courteous & helpful. The food was excellent.

Visited Ranchi on business on 20th March and stayed at above hotel again. Pleasantly surprised to get free upgrade to a suite. Very comfortable room. Bathrooms were very good. One advice to house keeping. Dustbin in bathroom was kept deep inside below the washbasin that it was not assessable. Had to use dustbin of the bedroom. Had Chinese lunch. Good... More

Excellent Staff, Food and extremely comfortable stay. My Wife and daughter enjoyed the stay even though it was for only a day or so for them. I have been to this hotel almost 3 times in last three months and have been always been happy. Good food and good people.

This is a beautiful hotel, sister of BNR-Puri, I visited last month. This is blend of heritage and Modern. The heritage rooms are in ground floor with tiled roofs, rooms are big with high ceiling and heritage furniture. The modern building has smaller but cozy rooms with all modern amenities. The hotel has a small swimming pool and lots of... More

Quit good location. Walking distance from railway station. Not very far from airport. Good ambiance. Nice reception. Great food. Awesome staff. Away from the noise and traffic. One of the oldest hotels in the city but perfectly maintain quality and services.

Me being from Ranchi itself, do not get an opportunity to stay at this hotel. But as we were a part of a Rally, stayed here. WE checked in past midnight, but still had no issues with the staff at the front desk. The overall experience was good. The rooms are a bit small. Neat & tidy. The breakfast is... More

It was located exactly opposite to Ranchi Railway station, just 2-3 kilo meter from Birsa Munda International Airport. Location was nice and room size was also spacious. Food Quality can earn 4 star. Recommended for others.

I had a large suite room where you could hold a small meeting or gathering- living room like space. But hotel is lacking in cleanliness, well needing an upgrade. The carpets in the hallways are filthy, the common area floors not well polished. The front desk staff mean well, but don't smile much, handle money exchange as if it stresses... More
