Fantastic setting overlooking the valley, we sat outside in the front garden enjoying our drinks which were brought to us by a barman, we were taken care of very well. Inside the hotel is beautiful, very spacious and clean. Food was fresh and tasty and I would recommend this... More

We only spent a day here and we really relaxed. The rooms are Victorian styled with large bay windows, a perfect place to sit with a novel and sip tea. The hotel is beautiful. The food was pretty good too. Hotel is located at a walking distance from the main bazaar.

Elgin silver oaks is a fabulous and classy hotel with beautiful surroundings with scenic beauty at kalimpong. The food was good with a feel of home food and the hotel staff was courteous. but there is some improvement required in washroom i.e there should be some extra space other than bath tub.

Just like Gangtok, the view from the rooms is lovely, the hotel is beautiful, the staff is courteous but for a hotel selling packages with food needs to provide you decent food. Again, no naans, no curd, no fresh juices in breakfast, no international food for foreign guests and a feel of home food like Ladyfinger, Lintels, Potatos and Indian... More

When arriving at this hotel we weren't even sure if it's open or not because the whole place looked rather like a construction site than a boutique hotel and the receptionist was more interested in watching the men work than checking our reservation. After receiving our room we had to find out that the bedclothes had not been changed (!)... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more   less
