Its a beautiful heritage property located very close to the Mall, the Mahakal Temple, the Darjeeling zoo and other attractions in Darjeeling. The rooms get plently of sunlight and the decor captures the old world charm pretty well. The lounge and tea rooms together with outdoor areas are perfect spots to enjoy Darjeeling tea. The food could be a bit... More

The rate we were offered was higher than on the web but we accepted. We were given the impression the hotel was full but in fact... More

This used to be the residence of an erstwhile royal of Coochbihar (what I heard). But irrespective of that - it's a nice property - situated 5 min walk from the Mall... More

We stayed in Elgin Darjeeling last year during our honeymoon to Sikkim & Bengal. Rooms were cosy and had a vintage feel to it. Loved It! Food was also good and more importantly staff was courteous and well behaved. Would highly recommend this hotel to other travellers.
