We have just spent a week at Hotel Ivy Castle in beautiful Darjeeling. From the first minute, all staff made us feel very welcome, letting us check in early and providing us with tea. They also provided us with a heater on request as it was a cold week in Darjeeling. The room was spacious with a huge window with... More

In the second week of our Darjeeling stay, we moved to the ivy castle guesthouse. It was recommended to us by a fellow traveller because of the reasonable prices, the good atmosphere and the possibility to use the hotel's kitchen. And indeed, we found it to be a place, where the rooms are a good deal, with some nice views... More

I definitely would recommend Hotel Ivy Castle during your stay in Darjeeling. Helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, hot water(during cold,rainy days very useful), internet,tea delivered to your door every morning and starry night in the room are only good things to mention and there are more. Hotel itself is newly reconstructed with beautiful view on mountains and great location.... More

I found Ivy Castle by accident but I am so grateful for that. Before I was in some other hotels in Darjeeling which all were cold and sad, as well as I stayed in family guest house in Darjeeling and I was also not happy there. Ivy Castle looks almost like european hotel , which is pretty rare for India.... More

I really liked Hotel Ivy Castle. The facilities were good, beds were comfortable, and it had this nice open feeling. Hot water is available and the rooms are nice and open. The views are amazing. So, for the price you pay you get even more. The real gem is the staff and the atmosphere. I recommend staying at Hotel Ivy... More

A great place. Nice view from our room and good atmosphere in the shared kitchen. My biggest negative feedback is that the staff often played loud techno music which I didn't enjoy -- but they were always happy to turn it down when I asked. Thanks Ivy Palace!
