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

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.
