Was here during the last week of December for 3 nights. It's a beautiful and well maintained property on the top of chalsaa hill. Rooms are quite spacious and large. The restaurant serves good food although a little pricey for the location. Good place to relax and rejuvenate

Well this review is long pending. I stayed there in May 2016 as part of my dooars trip.

Nevertheless, its perfect for a family holiday or a holiday with a big group as you have a big field and area to play games/sports. You have a gym and a badminton court as well. There is...
