“Worst Hotel for a Trip”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Worst hotel....the actual scenario of the hotel is just exactly opposite of what is shown in the pictures. The behavior of staffs are pathetic & they do not want to help their guest. Rooms are discolored, with patches all over. Bed sheets are not washed properly with spots all over. TV does not work properly with gloomy looking lights in the rooms.

Only good thing about the hotel is, it is located near the beach.

The location was one of the things that would make this a top runner among the hotels in Shankarpur. The view is blocked by some trees but you can catch a few peeks of the beach sometimes. The beach is a 2 minute walk and the food is tasty and reminds you of home. The staff is extremely helpful and the mattresses are better than the ones I have at home, (the extra blue colored ones), the maintenance of the rooms could be better and perhaps sheets cleaner, but overall it was an amazing experience and a modest on too. I suggest talking to the locals, it is really humbling.

Room Tip: Look for the rooms on the ground floor, much bigger spaces are available and it is very close to the...

This is an old fashioned hotel with staffs getting out of their way to help visitors. Food is good, the bar is closed. But they will serve you drinks in your room. For hot water, you also have to depend on room service. Food is simple & tastey. Staff is very very courtious. Rooms are quiet old & bit small in size. One cant exactly get sea view due to trees & sand dunes in front, but its the best location in Sankarpur. Overall a fine experience.

The location of the property was great...sea beach is 2 minutes walking. Very friendly and co-operative staff. Rooms are a bit older looking for the price. Maintenance of the rooms should be much better.

The location of the hotel is fantastic. The top most floors have views of the sea and you can hear the roar of the waves from the room. The vast expanse of the sea greets you as you wake up each morning. The food, prepared in very Bengali style is very tasty and the service is good too. However, the property does require some renovation. However, the overall experience was indeed satisfactory.

Room Tip: The rooms on the front side of the second floor are best.

Stayed there for a day only 10th June 2013. You shall be able to see the sea from your room. Food is so so. Bed dirty. Room stuffy. Wet bathroom. Poor room attendant. AC worked. But overall experience is good for solitary of the beach.

Room Tip: Stay here, dine else where.
