Pros: 1)...1st thing 1st Mr. DP Sarcar is a gem of a person, he can be the reason why you should revisit Retreat. 2)... Max 5 to 7 mins walk to MALL road (10 to 12 walk to Kevinter's and Glenary's) 3)... All rooms have clear view of Kanchenjunga Range. 4)... The roof of the hotel is basically a public... More

I booked from cleartrip because of good reviews. But before 2 days of checking, cleartrip agent called me with some disgusting excuses to inform my booking was cancelled by hotel. They said that hotel was already full for those days but they didn't update online. And that time I don't have much good option. After efforts we have to adjust... More

We went during the pujas...the hotel is located near the raj bhavan and is far away from the crowded mall area though you can easily walk down to the mall... Kanchenjunga is clearly visible from the rooms itself...the staff of the hotel were courteous and warm and the manager Mr. Sarkar deserves a special mention. The breakfast spread however needs...

If you are looking for a nice and clean hotel room from which you can look at Mt Kanchenjunga while lying down on your bed, or standing at your window, or while getting dressed , or from your balcony while sipping the golden brew, then stop at The Retreat Resort and look no further. Located at a two- minute walk... More

The manager of this hotel, Mr. D.P. Sarkar is a great human being to know. We felt at home with his warm hospitality. The same holds true about hotel staffs, especially Raju @... More

The USP of the hotel is its location.It is completely secluded from the crowd (due its proximity to the Raj Bhavan) ,yet it is just 2 mins away from the mall.The perfect location you might be looking for.The mountain view that you get from the room is breath-taking.The valley view that you get to see from the room is the...

This "resort" is located near to the raj bhavan, or the far end of the mall in case you are familiar with the local area of darjeeling. The main city center "the mall" is hardly a 5mins walk, along the mall road where motorists are banned so it is an pleasant walk amongst nature. Though vehicles are banned in the... More

The hotel is located just next to raj Bhabwan which mean no cars allowed and that translates to pure bliss in Darjeeling which has become too noisy and polluted with so many cars. Rooms are really good but it can be improved even further. Not sure why they have wifi only in the lobby..should be in all the rooms. The... More
