This old property of the Government of West Bengal was redesigned in 2015 and now under PSHR (Punjab Sweets Hotel and Restaurants), is one of only few places where you need to stay over and over.
Situated just at entrance of barrister colony in old Digha. In our opinion, this is the best-found lodging in old Digha with all rooms facing the sea except Hotel Sea Hawk.
We went there without booking and fortunately, we got a room. Stayed at Hotel Saikatabas for one evenings on 22.01.2018. Got one double room on the first floor. Each room offered a decent view of the Bay of Bengal through a big sea-facing window. The rooms on the first floor have preferred sea view over those on the ground floor.
Best sitting arrangement in front of the hotel to enjoy hassle free quality time on the beach. You sit there till 10PM (as per hotel authority instructions) to enjoy sea. Not so over crowded as in-front of other hotels. For bathing, Sea beach is just 5 minutes walk away (better than crowded New Digha beach).
Hotel Restaurant in the ground floor with part of menu for your decision. Cost is on bit of higher side. But quality of the food justifies the price. You have other food options in a cheaper rate outside the hotel. Room service is also available
Few areas however need attention of hotel management, such as need of a higher watt bulb in the toilet and a chair or few hanging pegs/hooks for towel etc. in the room.
Online booking is not available.
