I visited this hotel on the suggestion of my friend. I really loved this place. It's very spacious and quiet. The room rate which includes breakfast and dinner was worthy and good enough for such hill station. Will surely love to stay there again on my next visit to Darjeeling. There was not much of food variety but the items... More

The hotel is a heritage property, offering cosy comfortable quaint ambience that distinctly remind you if the Raj era. Darjeeling was once the summer capital of the British, and some fine properties like the Elgin that exudes the old world charm are reminiscent of those historic times.

A lovely, classically furnished, colonial hotel in a delightful, peaceful garden. The lounges are gloriously presented and the bedrooms have everything one requires for a good nights sleep and good bathroom facilities. Free wifi in the lounge. But, oh dear, the food and service in the dining room was dreadful. Awful food, greasy, minimal selection and the waiters seemed to... More

A well maintained treasure with a warm welcome, excellent food and on top a superb location. This is one of the five Elgin hotels, all owned by a family with a real passion and knowledge of what hospitality is about

The Elgin in Darjeeling has an excellent location, right there next to the Mall where every tourist will eventually find himself in. Though the Mall itself is disappointing, the Hotel makes up for it. It's Heritage in every way and the ambiance is one of times long gone by. There's even a Tea Room and a Library! The guest rooms...
