BARRACKPORE MANGALDHARA TOURISM PROPERTY – Malancha Tourist Lodge


BARRACKPORE“It is a beautiful spot, looking upon that reach of the grand river which she was so fond of drawing, shaded from the glare of the sun by high trees and amongst the bright shrubs and flowers in which she had so much pleasure,” Lord Canning wrote about Lady Canning. This property is right on the banks of the Ganges and adjacent to the Gandhi Ghat. It offers beautiful views of the River Ganges and is about a 5 minute drive to the main town of Barrackpore. The walkway along the Riverfront is an attraction and is a wonderful place to enjoy the changing colours of the sky from afternoon to sunset and late evening and to watch the reflections on the water and glass panels of the Dining Room. The boat ride in the lovely weather will be a bonus.  We look forward to see you with us soon.

Barrackpore was one of the earliest British settlements along the Hooghly river. The name Barrackpore originates from the English word barracks. Barrackpore acquired the name as the site of the first major military base of the British East India Company. Prior to that time, Barrackpore was known as Chanak, and is mentioned by that name in the Manasa Mangal. Arguably, it is also believed that during the regime of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, this place was a major collection center of “khajna” (taxes) and then it was named as Barbakpur. With time, the name changed to Barrackpore. Famous for its summer breeze, it was a popular riverside retreat for the British in Kolkata.

  1. I had made a booking for one nights stay at Malancha Tourist Lodge Barrackpore. My comments are as follows:
    1. Location: Excellent. By the river.
    2. Rooms: Spacious but unclean. Only one chair for two persons. Layer of dust on all furniture.
    3.Bathroom very dirty. Not cleaned. Water all over floor. Door latch broken.
    3.Housekeeping: Very bad. Dirty and used linens provided.One dirty towel provided for two persons.
    4.Food: Horrible and expensive. 02 pcs. chicken or fish cost Rs 300/-!! Unwashed oily plates, which we cleaned with water and napkin before eating.
    5. Service: Terrible. Nobody cares or bothers about guests.Nobody bothers to listen to simple guest requests like providing a chair, providing clean linen, cleaning the room etc.
    6. Though we had booked for one nights stay, but we left after 03 hours stay.

    Suggestions: It is a wonderful getaway from Kolkata. The problems are with service, house keeping and sensitivity to guest requirements.
