Rater Tara Diner Rabi Guest House
Ranked #2 of 25 Santiniketan B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I visited this place in beginning of March. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and kept well. We four of us shared a room and the room given was ample for all of us. Loved their garden and the beautiful flowers they have grown. Food was also good, your customized requests are also taken care mostly.

Though the book keeping is still with pen and paper. I would suggest get some modernization in that department. Also create a small reception area for guests who come and visit them.

Overall a good experience. Would surely visit again and recommend others.

Room Tip: please mention the number of people you are travelling before you book a room.

Expected a lot given the reviews of Trip Ad visor... But was a big let down.. Visited on 29th March 2013 ..The upstairs rooms were very small ... Rooms were not cleaned everyday... The service was also not upto the mark... The only high point was the food which was actually good...

RTDR, Owner at Rater Tara Diner Rabi Guest House, responded to this reviewResponded April 18, 2013

The person concern was adviced not to book Room No.6 as it is meant for only 2 adults and very particularly for a young couple but at the time of booking he insisted our staff that though he is having a very young child with him, it would not be problem for him. Moreover he insisted to have drinks in the porch, which is prohibited and he along with others started shouting in the midnight, which our staff objected and it perhaps generated dissatisfaction. Any how, we are not going to yield to any pressure and we are committed to serve our guests as we are doing at present. Our motto "Athithi Devo Bhavo".

Situated on a quiet and beautiful stretch of road, away from the main area, its a quiet, beautifully ornamented and gardened place, with all the facilities one could possibly need or wish for. Shantineketan is a marvelous place, away from the hustle of the city, and very refreshing. And the Poush Mela and Basanta Utssab are the key attractions of Shantiniketan, steeped in culture and tradition. I had the privilege of visiting during Basanta Utssab which always coincides with Holi. Needless to say, my time there was far more delightful than I anticipated and a major part of it is thanks to the hospitality and comfort of this place, i chose to stay in. The staff are courteous and the food is really great, though it sticks to bengali cuisine, am sure there can be no complains about it.

I visited on 9th feb 2013 with my parents, wife and four year old daughter. My very first impression, it was a garden house very well maintained and the colour is eye refresher.
They serve lovely Bengali food, amount is sufficient and quality is excellent.
We visited khowai, Vishwabharati and kankalkali madir

But the best part is the hospitality from the owner of the guest house very caring and highly energetic and gentle person.

Room Tip: 4 and 6 are the best room

Rater Tara Diner Rabi is a beautiful, peaceful and exquisite escapade to stay at while in Shantiniketan. Its homely, rooms are neat and comfortable with each room having an essence of Tagore.There is a nice terrace on the top where one may sit back and relax with a cup of coffee or tea and plunge into the beauty of the place which overlooks the garden. The garden itself is a marvel, one of the best maintained and arranged I have come across. All the attractions of Shantiniketan for example Vishwabharati, Kopai River, Khowai, Amar Kutir, Etc are nearby and easily accessible. The food is good and the service is at par as well. Overall its a great place to stay at while in Shantiniketan. It stays on with you.

RTDR is an excellent place for home away from home. The food is delicious if you are game for typical bengali food. The people are freindly and will go out of their way to help you. The rooms are spacious and clean. The place is child friendly(I had my three year old daughter) with me. The garden right infront is well maintained. I would definitely stay at the same place when ever I am in Shantiniketan.

Room Tip: Make sure there is enough mosquito repellants

Average to good rooms. Beautiful garden. Caring staff. Good food. That sums up this little guest house at Prantik. The staff stand by your table during meals to ensure that you are eating properly. They even go to the local market to get that special fish for you. We had lobsters, which were just wow!
