Amazing place with Amazing people like Uttam, Krishna and the Didi-s makes it a perfect place to stay whenever we are in Darjeeling. The best rooms to stay are cottages, Pandim, Rathong, Kabru and Kanchenjungha. The last time we were here in year end of 2014 for 3 days - with amazing Kanchenjungha just in front us from the cottages... More

The hotel was located a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the main town. It was around 10-12 minutes walk from the mall. But the view from the hotel of the Kanchenjunga was amazing. The lawn in the hotel was very nice and one could sit on the chair and enjoy the bright sunshine in the cold weather... More

I have been to Darjeeling multiple times and always tried to stay in various hotels close to the mall. While they were good, but nothing can be compared to the experience of this hotel. I was there end of Sep 2014 during Puja vacation with wife and kids.The best thing about this hotel is space. Large rooms with wooden floors... More

I went there with my hub and a 3 months old son in Dec 2014. I was in the Azeliaa. The view of Kanchanjungha was amazing from the room and the bathroom window. The spacious rooms have a functioning fire place and wooden floor. The bathrooms were clean with western fittings and geyser. Room service met expectations. It was crazy... More

We stayed there for 2 nights during our trekking tour in Sikkim. The staff was very friendly and hostability. We welcomed every day with warm tea and fresh and delicious dinner. The hotel is very old so to people how likes everything from western civilisation it might be not the right choose.... i would book again.

Stayed in the Tenzig Norhay suite which had an incredible view of the Himalayas. Food was good, served in a dining room with a big fireplace. Fires lit in the evening which was appreciated because it was unseasonably cold. Unfortunately, not so at breakfast which meant even the staff served in their jackets! Some broken glass high in the roof... More

Our original booking was for Dekeling but thanks to a goof up by Goibibo we ended up spending three nights (28th to 30th September) in this hotel. This is a heritage property located on Gandhi Road, a few hundred meters uphill from Keventers and an easy walk down to the mall. One of the biggest advantages that this hotel has... More
