Oneday Trip to Itachuna Rajbari,Hooghly
on Oct 26, 2019
I had a one day trip to Itachuna Rajbari with one night stay. I would recommend this place for any couple/family to spend some time away from the city life. The area is good and well-maintained. The hospitality is very good. Food is also awesome(bengali food only veg/non-veg). I stayed in a mudhut which was also very clean and comfortable. They try to provide a village type ambience, with a lot of trees, pond etc. You can find insects and rats which is expected I guess. They have a disclaimer stating that they do pest control twice a month, but still if anybody is bitten by snake, or anything else, the authority cannot be held responsible. But, I did not find any snake there. Winter would be a good time to visit here.

We were a group of 7 ladies who went on this visit. This heritage home has been maintained in excellent condition. We were made to feel welcome with a delicious welcome drink before being shown to our rooms. Lunch and dinner was of excellent quality with lots of traditional Bengali dishes being served. In the evening we had a guided tour of the place followed by evening Aarti. The lady of the house interacted with us multi times and made us feel welcome. All in all would recommend it for a short trip from Kolkata, specially for those who love to immerse themselves occasionally in tradition
Experience the richness of Bengal

I have had heard about this place a lot from people all this while and even read in the print form. I could only experience it this time and its really worth every penny. Right from the hospitality, food , ambience, maintenance of this place is impeccable.
We traveled from our ancestral house in howrah , to this place, by car in 2 hours time. They have even thought and have arrangements for drivers accompanying you.
The prices are displayed in their official website. They also do due diligence (multiple times) to check food preferences , etc.
The old place has been refurbished and made commensurate for modern day requirements (including the attached bathrooms).
The crew is very polite and well trained. They do their best to make the guests feel at home and treat them like a "guest" !
My only suggestion would be if at least one of the familiy members come and interact with the guests, it will really help the guests to feel better .
There is a guided tour of the place in the evening. However, this could be made much more informative.
Need to put in watch list. Service is bad

Some of the rooms are good but few of them , are real bad. Check before booking.
A C gets turned off in the evening and in the morning after 8 am when they want you to be kicked out for next guests.
Behaviour of the servers in the restaurant is horrible. Real bad experience with rude staff.
Rest are ok and passable.
