Sinh Sadan Guest House
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Sinh sadan is the best place to stay as its run by goverment of gujarat. you get all the information about gir national parks and the near by surrounding areas where you can go its the center of the natonal park so u can get transportation,food,market very easily and near by but you have to do advance booking for sing sadan as most of Ministers,MLAs,IAS and goverment officers stays here so its better to book your room in advance..........

Room Tip: corner a/c rooms are large in good.

Nice location and traditional cottage type accommodation with spacious surroundings. Management of this place is under forest department. Management of the guest house and lion safari tours are co-operative and helpful. Furniture and interiors require some renovations/replacements but architecture gives you feel of mid 1950's era. All resident guest in this place don't have to worry about getting permits for lion safari. Travelers looking for modern 4/5 star resort facilities should avoid this place. This place has nice gift shop run for the welfare of forest department employee association.

Room Tip: As you will take the lion safari next day morning, it's advisable to arrive here late in evening...

Location location location. The biggest plus. All the safaris start from this point and need to be booked from here. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Visited in Dec so did not need AC.

Food leaves a lo to be desired, but i guess in the middle of the jungle you dont have much choice either.

And cheap tariffs as well. Another plus, on some nights, you can hear the roar of the lions as well.

Only negative is that you dont get bookings easily. My first choice would be Sinh Sadan in Gir

Room Tip: Book in advance and enjoy the trip

A tourist stay point, right in the middle of Gir Forest, only abode of Asiatic Lions. The place is 102 years old. You cant even imagine so big and spacious rooms in our era. Well maintained. Ambiance is too good. Wash rooms are truly royal. No hassles, no disturbances. If you love tranquility, you must stay at this place. Its run by government, and you will change your opinion about places run by government in India once you stay at this place. I have never seen such a dedicated staff. They run a dining hall services here. Food served is Indian (vegetarian) at most reasonable rates. Hygiene and quality of food is excellent.

I had chosen Sinh Sadan for its reasonable tariff of Rs1500/day for an AC room and because the Safari bookings are made from its premises. The first safari booking starts at 5:15 am so it was easy enough to trudge along to the reception in a sleepy state.

Cleanliness and hygiene: The room linen isn’t changed as a rule on an occupant’s exit–our bedsheets looked somewhat crushed while taking the room and weren’t changed even upon requesting; even after paying the required charge of Rs100, I’d to pay extra tips to get a spare mattress, clean sheets, blankets and towels. All 3 blankets were torn in places. I’d to absolutely insist on a set of clean sheets to line them; the cleanliness level of the otherwise tiled bathroom and its western pot was poor and required a renewed resolve to use the facility; grimy dustbins and poor sweeping of the room often increased one’s discomfort over being in the room too! The room was equipped with a 29″ TV airing 100 channels but I wished it had offered clean linen/washroom instead.

Food and refreshments: Food is laid out buffet style in a common dining hall but every meal required one to repeatedly tell the Incharge about one’s plan to eat the next meal there or the food isn’t cooked for that guest; food is simple and vegetarian but nice to taste if one doesn’t peek too deeply into the kitchen or its counters or floor; bed tea is promised but doesn’t reach before 6.30 am—the time to be at the Sanctuary gate. For dinners, one must get the word to the Incharge by 5.00 pm and secure his nod. Breakfast of poha, toasts, butter+jam, plain paranthas+dry aloo sabzi is served on one’s return from the morning safari around 10 am. One can drop any of these items from his breakfast but not expect anything other than them. A pot of tea or coffee is part of a reasonable breakfast charge of Rs40/person. Lunch or dinner comes at Rs80/meal per person and includes rotis, 1 curry dish, 1 dal, rice, salad and paaper.

Tips: Most services require regular tipping to keep motivation levels high or one is left wondering about most basic facilities.

So, I’d say that one would do well to stay elsewhere and let that hotel offer a better experience of Gir. Or, approach Sinh Sadan without any illusions about its facilities and instead spend the money saved on making multiple visits to the sanctuary.

Usually, we dont stay at government guest house as there is always some problem with the amenities that they provide.But this one is wonder. We booked AC rooms of higher category just for 1500 rs per night only. The rooms were stunning. Nice beds,big flat screen and really spacious rooms. Much to our awe, safari booking is done from campus itself.The guest house is located in the center so almost everything around is accessible by walk.Near to lap of nature you can see lots of birds around in the morning. Awesome place to be!

Room Tip: Choose higher category ac rooms. Non ac rooms arent that good.

As I travel quite a lot for wildlife photography, I generally prefer forest / govt properties generally because of their location. Sinh Sadan turns out to be probably the best place to stay at Sasan if your are on a wildlife trip. It is not luxury class, but decent property with a nice green campus. Given 80% people goes to national park and yet seek luxury, they will not like this place. Rooms are in an old heritage building, and hence size are palatial. That too for a paltry 1500 for AC and 500 for non AC rooms. Main room was about 12x20, then two separate toilets plus a changing room. This was built for guests of erstwhile king of Sasan. The biggest plus is that safari booking office is located in the campus itself and is also the start and end point of safaris. That way you save yourself precious 30 min extra sleep in morning. If you stay elsewhere, then you will have to come well in advance to collect permit. If you stay here, then just walk out of your room 10 min before safari starts. There are several eateries opposite the campus gate which also is another good reason for staying here. Highly recommended.
