“hollong banglow is too good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

we spent one night and two days in hollong banglow in the puja holidays in 2010.
in the night we could easily see the rhinos, bisons just in front of the banglow from our room. it's really adventureousin the evening when wil animals just come in from of banglow the staffs show them by search light. if one can awake full night he can watch wild lives from his room. beside the behaviour off thee staff specially the manager, i can'nt recall his name, is superb. elephant safari is good though we did not find any big cats or rhinos. but staying in hollong banglow is really amazing. one should visit it as I think it is the best forest banglow in west bengal.

I and my family stayed in the Hollong Tourist Lodge on 28th April, 2012. It was a wonderful experience I must stay. We saw different wild animals (Bison, Barking Deer, Peacock, Rhino, Snake, wild Elephant etc) from the Living room. The early morning elephant ride was too good as well. One shouldn’t miss it. I would also like to appreciate the effort of the staff who helped all the tourists to see the wild animals during night hours, by focusing a powerful search light. The food was awesome.

On the negative side I want to mention that they charge heavily on anything and everything. The booking charge doesn’t cover the fooding part or the Elephant Ride. You have to pay Rs.330 and 300 respectively to avail those services. The car which would drop you there would be charged for its entry and (Rs.100) and parking (Rs.40) even though it just drops you and go by. Moreover, the AC doesn’t work.

Superb location to viewing the one horned rhinocerous at close quarters. Atmospheric, difficult to get a room without a local contact. Great people, no frills, good food (breakfast and dinner). Excellent elephant safari in the early morning (6am). Basic accommodation, plenty of insects in the rooms. Hot water, fans, comfortable beds and nets. Rs. 9000+ taxes for a double for foreigners (double the price of a local tourist).
