This is the best hotel in chalsa area, and very well maintained. The campus is very nice with facilities like swimming pool, cycling, spa etc. The restaurant is nice but food taste can be improved. Complimentary breakfast is also nice. Overall, very nice stay for weekend.

We had our annual sales meet here for eastern region . The rooms and service are good as is the food. The pool however seemed a tad dirty with green water and unoccupied. The food was also quite good.

The perfect place to stay if you are visiting dooars. Everything one can expect from a star rated property is available here. Only the car rental is over priced i think. Also there are many less explored sight seeing areas about which the travel desk needs to be updated.
