The 'Rajbari' is a sprawling property, old architecture, passages and staircases suddenly discovered, locked rooms with musty smell, archways.....something new to be discovered at every bend. Me and my friend and our moms - had an amazing time for 3 days at the Rajbari. We found the basic amenities in place, like modern bathrooms and toilets, and clean rooms. Rooms and furniture were kept as authentic as possible to preserve the feel of the place and they were perfectly comfortable. The sheets and towels were very clean and changed everyday. We did not find the price high because maintenance of a place like this is expensive. The management try their best to keep the place in good shape, which is a monstrous task considering the size of the Rajbari. The staff were helpful, food excellent. We were taken good care of. We particularly enjoyed the day when we were the only guests, and it rained as if the sky will fall off, lightning being the only source of light amidst the power cut. We enjoyed the rain and beauty of the Rajbari in the wild weather. The staff were apologetic about the power cut and about telephone lines being cut. But we could do without those.
It is perhaps not the place if you want a lot of 'fun activity' with friends and if you expect luxury of any city hotel and everything modern and spic and span. But it is definitely the place if you enjoy the serene beauty and walking around a place very different from the commotion of urban Kolkata.
