The hotel has excellent view. The owners are very nice and helpful. They provided with the free shuttle whenever we wanted. The only negative point is the food is not good , they have to improve on their cooking.

The hotel is totally unhygienic with not cleaned bathrooms- flush not working and foul smell in room (something that cannot be captured in photo), untidy pillow covers, room wardrobe used as crap storage and to top that no hospitality/service at all. The hotel manager refused for getting the rooms cleaned. We've not been provided with mineral water bottles rather a... More

We had booked 3 suite rooms for 4 days with a clear instruction that they should be on the same floor only tofind that we were allotted 3 rooms on 3 different floors. Rooms were great with very good view. So were the common places like the lawn, sitouts and library. Unfortunately the services are poor. Staffs are well behaved... More

We stayed in Dekeling Resort between May 26, 2015 and May 29, 2015 and had a memorable stay. The rooms were spacious and the staff courteous.. We got a room with a classic view of the Himalayas (K2) and though there was fog, still the views were great.

This place is a bit far from town center, but has a complimentary car service, which takes you to its parent hotel right on the Mall - Dekeling Hotel. The advantages of the Hawk's Nest resort far outweigh this slight issue of location. Some of the advantages include: 1) Great views from our windows - you can easily see the... More

We arrived on a lovely day in Darjeeling and were very pleased with our room. It had a very comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom (the best one I had seen in India). The down sides were that there was no wifi even though it was advertised and there was a lot of building work going on which prevented us... More

The large, comfortable rooms and great mountain views fail to make up for slap-dash service at Dekeling Resort. I stayed four nights and was consistently disappointed by the staff and management. After several mix-ups with our booking, the resort agreed to discount our stay. However, this was the beginning and the end of our positive experience at this hotel. Rest... More

This resort's major strengths are its excellent views of the valley and decent rooms. However, I find it hard to recommend due to the difficulties in dealing with management. Overall, they leave the impression of not being concerned about their guests and a number of unpleasant surprises left me with an increasingly poor impression. A few key examples below will... More

+ves - 1. Location - Away from the crowded mall. The Chowrasta is a 15 minute walk downhill. Walking back up can be a problem if you are tired. I liked the location for the calmness. The Japanese peace is 10 minutes walk. 2. Facilities - Stayed in a Deluxe double bed room which was well furnished. Nice view from... More
