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

I stayed here for two nights and had a suite. The owners are incredibly nice people who went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and all my needs were met. The room was great- beautifully appointed, very spacious. The bed was comfortable. I had a fire lit in the fireplace both nights whenever I wanted. There... More

Amazing resort with perfect location, straight view of Kanchendzonga Peak from the room directly. Very peaceful location, a little away from the market but the resort provides one free to-fro ride to the Dekeling Hotel which is in the middle of the market so the off market area becomes a treat!. Very courteous and helpful staff, the breakfast menu has... More

Right off the bat I would like to say that if you are a peace loving person with a family it would be a sin to not stay here. On a good day, right from your window or the small picnic area on the top one can get breathtaking views of Darjeeling and Kanchenjunga. To get what I am saying... More

Had a memorable 3 nights stay at Dekeling Resort during Mar'15. The most unique experience I had was interaction with Mr. Mrs. Norbu, the owner of this family owned resort. They are one of few nicest persons I have ever interacted with. I ran into minor issues at resort during check-in and Mrs. Narbu took personal care and arranged everything... More

Excellent Location and very caring and courteous owner of the resort, will surely visit again. The suite is exceptional and the view from it memorable, for the market we have provided the car to drop and pick us up.
