We had been travelling for days,across bumpy dusty almost non existent Indian roads. We had stayed in some interesting hotels but nothing quite prepared us for The Glenburn. To call it an hotel doesn't seem right,it's Colonial charm and quiet demeanour makes it feel as though Brigadier Brown and his lady wife may stroll along at any moment! Instead we... More

We stayed for three nights over the xmas period and enjoyed every moment of our stay. The hotel is situated right in the middle of a large tea plantation and has wonderful views wherever you look. We were a party of two couples and stayed in a separate house just below the main house. The rooms were huge and beauifully... More

An exceptional place draws exceptional guests. Glenburn draws such an array of guests that the resident English managers, Victoria and Auriole, do not lack for social interaction despite managing a remote tasteful boutique hotel set on a ridge 3000 ft above the plains of West Bengal. Tasteful restraint in a country overrun with a riot of colour and excess is... More

Stayed here two nights and not long enough. Most unique place I stayed and the best food in a recent three-week trip to Bhutan and India. Quite a few activities including hiking, fishing, exploring, tour of the tea factory and just relaxing. A working tea plantation with a fantastic history and extremely well maintained. Mangers Victoria and Auriole kept things... More

After a rather uncomfortable 4 hour journey from Bagdogra over very rough roads we arrived at the Glenburn Tea Estate. What a blissful place, great room with good bathroom facing Kanchenjunga which is about 90 km away, but is so clear and beautiful. The food was sublime and dinner is eaten around a single large table with name places so... More

The views from the tea estate are gorgeous, and the place is very serene. The food was excellent one night and so-so the next but the staff aims to please if you have any special requests. The rooms are quaint but note that not all of them have screens. We met some great guests over cocktail hour and round table... More

Whilst the Glenburn Tea Estate looks great on the website, I was not prepared for the soaring epicness of the place. Surrounded by fantastically deep valleys and towering mountains you can see the snow-capped Himalayas the hotel - a majestical view which I had not realised we would be enjoying.

Let me start by saying, I was skeptical of the place. My wife had heard friends rave about the place but I was not convinced. Price seemed a bit steep and I did not know what I or the kids would do. However, gave in when a few family friends made a plan together. I as surprised beyond my expectations.... More
