I stayed in retreat twice and my experience was amazing. It gives a beautiful view of kanchanjanga range amd perhaps no other hotel can give such view from their rooms.Staff of the hotel were very helpful.Special thanks to the senior manager of the hotel Mr D.P.Sarkar who made our overall experience such a memorable one.

The hotel is cozy, rooms are modern in look and spacious. They have to improve a lot in the service part all tough all staffs are well behaved. My special... More

The journey from Cochrane Place(Kurseong) to Darjeeling had been a visual extravaganza . But the real surprise was waiting for us @ The Retreat. The Royal Deluxe room allotted to us by Mr Sarcar had a mesmerising ringside view of the mountains amidst plush settings! The service was impeccable and the food great ... made even better by the camaraderie... More

Last minute reservation landed me in this dreadful hotel which gave me a feeling of living in a "ghetto".Extremely bad lighting ("0 WATT" bulbs) gives you a feel of a "dingy country bar".Broken charging sockets.I was unable to charge my phone.This hotel functions on the will and whims of Mr.DP Sarcar who has vowed to make every visitors' life miserable.It...
