From the shabby tourist information centre near Damber Chowk, I was recommended Deki Lodge and was told many travellers go there. I walked up the main road, Rishi Road, for 10 minutes, turned left up the hilly Tripai Rd only 30 metres, and it was on the left side through an unsuspecting gate. I got a small and basic but...

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

Old style rooms downstairs with tiny TV's, short beds and cramped bathrooms...but with it cold and wet outside not a bad way to go...hot water geyser and plenty of blankets was nice...parking for our motorcycle and good food served...manager obviously told to jack the prices for tourists the big worry I would say! Not much else on offer in Kalimpong... More

Stayed in Delux room for three with TV en-suite and outside balcony which made for private out door area...price p/n double other rooms like Orchid Hotel in centre, so it pays to shop around on the day...but room hard to better compared to other B&Bs.

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

My wife & I stayed at the Deki Lodge from March 31 to April 2 2012. We were very pleased with the experience. The Manager and the owner were very helpful, gracious & friendy. 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
