The property is amazing. It takes one back to the colonial era when (as old timers say) it used to be a privilege to be a part of the Club. Well, even today i find staying here is a delight. The stylish wooden construct, red-carpeted floors, private deck adorned with old-fashioned sofa and table, the long veranda and the dedicated... More

Quite convenient centrally located with good restaurants nearby. No disturbance inspite of being in the heart of city. It is advisable not to take food inside the room. Rooms are spacious and clean. Coal fired heating system in the room is worth trying.

The service is good, having good restaurant, the room sizes are big with nice view with fire place in each room and other areas are also having fire place as it is a heritage property. There is a bar and a billiards room and also a nice sitting area. Overall good nice hotel but it should be better.

I went with my family to Darjeeling, and we stayed at the Planters Club. We had two rooms on the first floor. Here is a list of the pros and cons: Pros: 1) The hotel's best feature is its location. It is centrally located, giving you easy access to the Mall, Glenary's, Keventers, etc. 2) On the ground floor of... More

Darjeeling Planters Club is a Raj era property. It has got a lot of character. The location is simply at the heart of Darjeeling. The rooms are huge - comes with a dressing room and a big bathroom. Every room has fireplace - one can use it but have to pay for the wood. It's a different experience and at... More

Went to this hotel with the intention to spent two nights here. However, the lady in charge was so incredibly rude, that on the spot we decided not to stay here and never come back. Coming from Gangtok, me and my wife were rather tired, and my wife wanted to use the toilet. She even refised this to my wife!!... More

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
