The Erstwhile Rail Companies

These awe inspiring rooms take you back in time and give you the  seclusion one needs to enjoy your stay at the Chanakya BNR. Inspired by the Erstwhile Railway Companies like the South-Eastern Railway and the Bengal Nagpur Railway to name a few, each room speaks the of the grand history of the Railway companies from a bygone Era. The colonial furniture, antique feel and subdued lighting add to the historical value. Your mood will be further enhanced by the wide balconies and the spacious bathrooms. Enjoy the cool sea breeze in your private balcony or just sit out and immerse yourself in the grandeur and the mystique of the railways.
