Stayed with a group of family friends. Nice place with lot of historical values. Mallory started his mount Everest expedition from here. Good food. One of the rare hotel where fireplace is still available.

This is a lousy piece of hotel which is grossly over publicised. Unfriendly staff, unclean rooms, high-priced facilities. I did not at all get why residents need to pay separately for the coal bucket to light the fireplace of a 4000K room! Highhandedness everywhere. The heritage is all they have got. No attempt of maintenance or upgradation. In fact the... More

Spent a night at this place. Have been staying there since 2006 because of its great location and views of Mt. Khangchendzonga. I feel that this place needs good maintenances. People are nice and helpful, and older guests might come back to stay. But to attract new guests, the management needs to check the construction. There are visible cracks on... More

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
