We arrived at this hotel in the middle of a thunderstorm and therefore had little choice but to remain, despite vastly inflated prices compared to anywhere else we'd stayed and little quality to show for it. The staff were friendly though and we had a mediocre meal in the restaurant. After an exhausting day we went to sleep but found... More

There is nothing bad about this place, it's just well overpriced for what it offers. We got a room outside for 600 rupees a night (double). The room was cute and cosy, but it didnt include a geyser, or hot water, or a fan, and had a squat toilet. It's also a fair walk out of town up a steep... More

My first trip to Kalimpong was made so sweet because of this place. Homely and lovely, the 2-night stay at Deki Lodge was very warm to say the least. The dining room, the stairs, Bhutia ji's wonderful cooking (especially the chicken curry :P), and Tashi and her dogs made our stay really memorable. In the evenings, switch off the lights,... More

Not much else on offer in Kalimpong... More

We stayed two nights in this place - the owner was nice and the room was clean and quiet. The hotel has a good location, not far away from a noisy town center. The food was OK, you can enjoy it on a great terrace overlooking a small garden that separates the building from the street. The garden does help... More

Room was clean and the food was good. The Lodge is in a good location too, central to town, but not in a loud area. We... More

I travelled in India for 6 months in 2011. I nearly forgot to review this lodge because I showed up a bit sick and lost a day. I also didn't like Kalimpong very much. But this was a fantastic place to sleep and recover. The food was very good, and I enjoyed the owners. It had a lot of character... More
