The charming hostesses, Victoria & Aurielle. The refined and pedigreed estate manager, Parvez. The silent, yet efficient and courteous staff. All of these complement the greenery of the tea estate and make for a wonderful experience at Glenburn... From the time we arrived at the station to the time we left the airport, we were extremely well looked after. The... More

Trip Advisor has only 5 stars but I would gladly give more if I could. Just got back from a 5 night stay (please don't opt for anything less than 4 ) at this heavenly place. The location on a working tea estate of 1600 acres is excellent and the views are to die for. From the moment you arrive... More

This is a breathtaking place. It is quite exceptionally beautiful, both the hotel itself and the surrounding steeply mountainous setting; and it is also a working tea plantation, with many opportunities to see the tea being harvested and processed, and to taste the many varieties produced. On a clear day, you can see the dazzlingly beautiful snow-covered mountain, Kanchenjunga -... More

A wonderful unique property with stunning surroundings and views (weather permitting). The property is based on a working tea plantation and is a great base for day hikes around the picturesque estate. If you are not energetic it would be a great spot for chilling out or doing a day tour to nearby Darjeeling. A tour of the tea factory... More

We expected good things when half way from Bagdogra to the hotel the driver stopped at a lovely view point and laid out a fabulous tea including lovely china tea cups and delicious First Flush tea. The hotel is on a beautiful, peaceful working tea estate and has stunning views. We stayed in the Water Lilly bungalow and had a... More

Fantastic place, made even more so by the friendly people and high quality of service. I would recommend this place to anybody who wants to visit the hills and tea gardens of North Bengal. Three nights is a minimum recommendation but more the merrier. There are facilities for hikes and trails and fishing or just relaxing with a books from... More

I had high hopes of Glenburn and it certainly did not disappoint.. What a fantastic place to relax for a few days. We had a beautiful big room with a balcony overlooking the tea plantation and with fabulous views of the mountains on the couple of occasions they actually appeared through the very unseasonable haze. Everything about Glenburn is immaculate,... More
