Sinclairs is a place you would like to get lazy.You will have all sorts of entertainment-ranging from billiards to music(depending on the season).The food served would be just sumptuous...you will have no complaints.Consisting various dishes,your meal will be delightful.

The Hotel is good and provide excellent view of Kanchenjungha. Rooms are good with wooden flooring and cooperative staff. The hotel is not far from the main market but approach road is really bad and steep. Food is good. Overall its a comfortable stay.

Sinclairs is a bit pricey for what you get; however, it was a fair overall experience. The staff are hit and miss, some highly hospitable and some relatively surly. The rooms are spacious yet dated.

Visited Darjeeling in October ’08, and from the moment I stepped into the room, I was sure that I had made the right choice. The room had all wooden ceiling and flooring (even the passageways), the bed was quite comfortable and the bathroom, although a bit cramped, was adequate. The view from the room itself wasn’t that great, but each... More

We had three nights stay at The Sinclairs, Darjeeling during the period 15th-18th Oct'13. Hotel is good with excellent view of Kanchenjungha from the balcony of 2nd & 3rd floor, provided morning sky is clear. We were fortunate in that regard. Its a better option to stay here and see Kanchenjungha with a sip of Darjeeling tea early in the... More

Had a nice overall stay - however a few things - the place needs some maintenance. The staff, though polite and courteous, needs to be proactive. A few improvements required in the restaurant. The closing hours need to be extended. A lot of items on the menu are not available. They need to be better stocked.

I had been pre-booked into Sinclairs Darjeeling by the travel company that arranged much of my India trip, Immediately when I arrived, I had serious doubts. The entire place looked very run-down.
