My travel consultant told me that there is something special about Glenburn but I was not fully expecting the amazing experience awaiting me. I have stayed at some really special places over the years but Glenburn is right up there with the best of these. I stayed for three nights on a month long tour of Bhutan and Northern India... More

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...

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.
