Whenever I think of Hill station Darjeeling starts appearing in my mind.. and whenever I decide to visit the Queen of Hills,.......

We have stayed at this place this time too and during tthe Christmas. I am aware that this place at first look is provides a little disorganized look when you compare this with the likes of some really nice hotels of Darjeeling. But for us, the old world charm of a 20 by 16 room complete with ante room and... More

We were told this was beautiful and charming and made a booking. But upon reaching the club we were in shock. The place is dilapidated, everything - yes, everything - is either broken,ragged, dirty, messy or under repair. They have some big renovations going on so one hopes it will be restored some day to what is said to have... More

This place is a real one off and I loved. It is really old fashioned place, slightly disorganised but really friendly. My room was was massive wooden panelled, they have a billiard room and an amazing view of the Himalayas. If your like posh chain hotels you will probably not like this place as it's quirky, has no lift, wifi... More

Old and atmospheric. Empty due to being poorly signed and well about the pedestrian walkway. Tables were a bit dusty. menus were filthy and old, but soups came in clean tableware and were hot and very spicy. Excellent prices (e.g. soup 100rp) mains approx 150Rp. No wifi despite prominent signage promising it !!

This is an old club from colonial era which is now used for a hotel kind of stuff. The rooms are good for the tariff but lack maintenance in totality. The view of Kanchenjunga is awesome from balcony and that makes for other deficiencies.

The club is very old and is located at very a good location. The property is very big but not well maintained. The rooms, staff and service is very awful. The food too is very poor. The rooms are quite large but not properly furnished which gives you a bad feel about the club. Verdict: Avoid if possible

This is a well located, decent and attractive hotel providing glimpses of Kanchenjunga, eastern Himalayas and Darjeeling town from its verandahs and terraces .Suites are available at reasonable tariff and give feeling of bygone era. Though maintenance is a bit lacking but the location and views of Darjeeling landscapes and mountains compensates for it. Chaurasta Mall, the central place of... More
