“'Ultimate Royality in Jorhat' What hyperbole!! It's acceptable though.”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

And, tolerable! We don't agree that the bathrooms were small nor food nor the floor attendant service were not acceptable. New Park is far from luxurious but, given the alternatives, we made do and got the most out of what it can offer. We came for the TOCLAI tea research station conference and stayed a week in this hotel.

This is a mid-sized, rather remote town so, don't expect much! The New Park is reasonably priced and has average (Indian-style), acceptable facilities. We did try elsewhere but, came to accept this hotel, in the end.

Our first night was a poor experience because we got the last room available... therefore, it had been raided of its furniture, eg. table,chair, bathroom bucket. The geezer was kaput and there was a exterior wall opening where the AC had been removed which allowed mosquitoes in! (We subsequently got a discount on the room rate for that night.)

We went looking for another hotel the second day. Found the Tourist Bungalow had very large rooms with classic old, wood furnishings and balconies but, the views from the balconies were uninspiring.

At the New Park, if your befriend the floor staff... they'll do anything for you! From Day Two onwards, we had all the furniture, daily fresh towels and sheets, laundry assistance etc. and smiles we needed. Give them a tip occasionally! These poor buggers work long hours for nearly nothing! Rs 20 every few days does wonders!!

The food in the hotel restaurant is acceptable. Particularly decent are the noodle dishes. The masala omelette w/ bread toast and coffee and tea was our regular breakfast. But, have it delivered to the room! The restaurant is a dingy, dark, miserable place and, true... you better bring "War and Peace" with you to read because it does take forever to get the order. So, waiting for your meals to arrive in your room is far better. There's the TV and your own comforts there.

We tried the 10 item Assamese thali for lunch at a hotel down the lane. We didn't care for it though it was served in a nice, dining room decorated with local handicrafts. Most of the reasonable Jorhat hotels are on this U-shaped lane behind the but "stand". The New Park is the best of the lot.

Room rates for us were Rs. 650 per night (the lowest rate) in November, 2011. Don't pay a higher room rate for a 'luxury' (Are you kidding?) room. There is hardly any difference in amenities among New Park rooms.

Room Tip: For best view, get a room on the highest floor available; facing the front of the building.

I stayed this hotel because I could not find room in any other good hotel like MD Continental in the town. My visit to Jorhat, happened suddenly, so I could not make booking of hotel room previously. However my overall impression is average. The room rent is quite cheap compare to the hotel rooms. But my most dislike of the hotel room is the bathroom. The bathroom is very small compare to the room. Overall the room and the toilet is clean. The second problem is with the A/C. It creates hell lot of sound which disturbed by sleep. The dinner facility is not that good hence taken food outside the hotel. The room service or the house keeping is not at par with other good hotel. The room boys had lethargy to respond any call. But the receptionist is quite prompt. The good part of the hotel is the location. It is just near to the main bus stand of Jorhat. There are also many nos. of hotel situated in vicinity of the hotel, so any body can check easily other hotels room rent and the facilities and can compare the same. I put this hotel in average rank however value of money is good.

Hotel New Park is a standard business/travellers hotel with decent rooms and good value for your money. Its clean and properly maintained. The service in the restaurant is, however, terribly slow. Stay for the night but go elsewhere for your meals.
