If anyone is looking for great sight-seeing, then Tarapith is not your desired place. The main attraction is the Ma Tara Mandir. The atmosphere and aarati in the temple is stunning.
People often say Tarapith is bad place, bad hotels, etc. The reason - they have not been to Sonar Bangla yet.
This is my second time in Tarapith and i am completely in love with this hotel. I stayed in the premium section second floor, which is near the pool. I went during hot summer it was around 39-40°C but it was cool inside the rooms.
I loved the entire stay. Good Behavior . Great food just fish items were not available and biriyani is bad. [ They said about the biriyani before]
Great pool. Clean toilets.

Room Tip: Of course the premium first floor rooms are the best

Basically if you want to stay nearby the temple nd enjoy with ur family in relaxing mood, it's a perfect location. Food is also up to the mark, the pool is lovely, nd the rooms are also specious nd comfortable.

The rooms are good but the hotel isnt cleaned properly so yo will find lots of dead leaves and trash on the grounds...
The hotel is in a walking distance from the temple..contact the hotel directly and book and you will get some reduction in prices as they are quite negotiable..the food is not at all something you will enjoy..infact its pathetic..and the way the waiters talk its like you are staying there for free and they are doing you a favor..
check the room before booking them and also the ac is in working condition..

I've visited Tarapith with my family on second week January, 2014 and stayed at hotel Sonar Bangla. The hotel is on the walking distance from the Ma tara temple. This is the 2nd time we have visited this hotel.
We have booked the Two AC Premium Suits room by contacting the htel directly and found the rooms are spacious. They are having one big bedroom & a small drawing room with an open Balcony facing the Pool. They are having a good lawn inside the hotel, where the kids can enjoy too.
The service of the staffs are good, however sometimes few staffs in the hotel receptions are skeptical while replying your queries. The breakfast should have been complimentary as the rooms charge are very high. One main thing is that the food-quality in the hotel restaurants needs to improve to commensurate with the price-tag as the prices are generally very high for every food.
In a nut-shell we have enjoyed while staying in the hotel minus the food & few behaviours from the staffs. I wonder whether the hotel management is ever taking their interest to look in these reviews or not.

Room Tip: Rooms which are AC premium Suit & pool facing are quieter & spacious. these are the better o...

I had booked 2 double bedded A.C. room but due to some unavoidable circumstances was unable to go. My only mistake was that I had booked through cleartrip and they succeeded in gobbling up my money in spite of telling them 24 hrs, beforehand. I lost about Rs. 5000/-. The hotel was not able to help me as I had booked through cleartrip. My only advice is NEVER book through CLEARTRIP as at the time of booking they promise one thing and never bother to keep the promise. NO BOOKING THROUGH CLEARTRIP FRIENDS.

stepped in for lunch during our visit to Tarapith, though haven't tried the rooms, but owing to its ownership history, we decided to lunch here. the food's nothing to write about, pretty average. but the staff is pathetically hopeless! their attitude is the kinds as though they are literally doing a favor attending to u! no warmth, no hospitality, the 1st word that comes out of their grumpy mouth is a NO! a no for anything and everything! seems like these folks take their guests for granted and hold no respect of any kind! a seriously disheartening experience!
