I believe the star ratings are managed here. I follow Trip Advisor ratings & reviews, but this time we're in for a rude shock! We stayed there on 12th & 13th May. We were given a room which was very dirty, the bathroom with mould and dirt. It was leaking too. About the views... the window opened up in the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights beginning of May, in one of the VIP rooms. Room was really great, with separate terrace/sitting area. Unfortunately did not even get a glimpse of the mountains during the 6 days….so there is no guarantee that if you go to Tiger Hills early morning you will see anything… Room was unfortunately very...

Stayed with my family for 3 nights in this property. The hotel has a personal touch with the manager Mr D P Sarcar always ready to help you. It is situated at a 7-8 min walking distance from the mall just around a quiet bend from the Raj Bhawan. Service is good, most rooms have excellent views. Bathrooms are clean... More

The hotel has an excellent view from especially dining room and terrace. Hotel is away from market area. So those who love to spend leisure time will like this place. Do not go for the Kanchenjunga view point at 4 in morning because no guarantee of Kanchenjunga view even after spending half hour travel in such a morning time. From... More
