The location is excellent. The Frank Ross, Keventers, Gleneries restaurants are about a 60-second (or less) walk away. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The hospitality is warm and comes with smiles included (quite rare these days). I cannot fault this hotel. There is small restaurant on the ground floor called Devekas. I think theirs' is the Darjeeling's best... More

A lovely hotel in a great location. A welcome cup of tea on arrival was the perfect start to our trip (and most needed after a long, bumpy jeep ride!). Clean and spacious room? Very pleasant and helpful staff. Quick wifi connection in communal areas. Super fast laundry service too :) I highly recommend this hotel.

The area is more tourist in nature but it was a Tibetan and Nepali influence that is magical. The area is very peaceful and... More

This hotel was absolutely charming. The wood decore was homey, the view was great, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The hostess and staff were friendly and attentive. The bang for your buck is oustanding. I would highly recommend it.
