Its like going back to the childhood when we used to visit Darjeeling with our parents. The rooms are very spacious, with fire place inside the room burning throughout the night. Had a romantic nostalgic feelings attached to it. The property has huge space and you can find local youth skating and playing different games inside the clubhouse. It takes... More

We stayed at Gymkhana resort in Darjeeling for one night in December 2014. The location of the resort is really convenient as it is very close to the mall road, yet away from the humdrums of the centre of the town and quite peaceful. With wooden floorings, high ceilings and nice paintings decorating the resort, the club has a classy,... More

Its a heritage place. Stayed in darjeeling gymkhana resort during May second week. Food is tasty, with limited choices. But the rooms could be better for the tariff. Interiors of the rooms could be better. Felt, its not a great place to stay for the tariff which we pay

We stayed at the resort during an Amateur Tennis Tournament at the adjacent club. The Resort is basic and serves only Vegetarian Food (Not even Eggs). The staff is helpful but the cleanliness and service can be better. The location is good though.

It is one of the best budget place to stay.It is old British Style and not modern look. But it is real fun to stay at such hotel with tradition value with great service and good food. Rooms are big and cozy. You can not expect star facilities but I am sure if you stay you would be happy at... More

Spacious family room on the top floor. It's located near St.Andrew's Church - a bit far from downtown and be cautious when walking back in the nightime. Surprised there is... More

On entering the site it looks like a bomb hit the hotel! The personnel are very nice and accommodating but in January although there are fire places, they are not clean or lit and it was freezing!! The toilet was leaking, and the shower blocked. They brought us hot water bottles for our beds and a heater for the room... More

I stayed at Darjleeling Gymkhana Resort, at the Mall, Darjeeling. This is very old (more than 100 years) resort. It takes you to a glimpse of the british era facilities. The arrangements at reception, dining hall and the rooms takes you through the royal feelings of olden day life.
