Me and my friend had a terrible experience. After spending time at some super home stays in Himachal and Sikkim, we were expecting a good experience here based on the reviews. When were entered, it came across like a cheap one star hotel. There was no family to meet. The rooms were clean however, were quite dingy. We preferred to... More

We contacted Mr Gailly over mail in the month of April 2015. It was a sudden decision to visit Darjeeling. He was kind enough to revert on mail though he was travelling in Bhutan. We booked online and he had provided us with a booking confirmation and a pickup from NJP. We were picked up from NJP on time. Prenesh... More

The hotel is located in the centre and hence we can walk down to nearby restaurants to eat since they do not have restaurant inside. But the rooms are very good, give nice complimentary breakfast made in the home upstairs itself.

I contacted the Snow Lion by internet from outside the country and was dealt with promptly and efficiently. They organised relatively economical pick up from airport making the journey easy after what had been a long flight from the UK. The rooms are beautifully presented. I was there in the Winter and each night I was provided with hot water... More

The owners took very good care of us and made us feel like family. I was travelling alone with my 4 year old daughter - and when I got sick one day they took so good care of both of us. The livingroom was nice and cozy and the food was good. The road outside is a little bit noisy... More

It's a small hotel, with excellent rooms, the best thing about it being pet friendly. It is located just besides the main road and very close to the main market. The staff is polite and courteous. The hotel rooms are not very heavily priced and hence affordable. The market is hardly 6-7 minutes walking distance.

The only drawback was the water heating system which needs to be changed as it gives you half a bucket of hot water and you have to wait for another half an hour in the biting cold to get another...
