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

This was our first stop in our year ending break to the hills of north Bengal and Sikkim, and the first of the four Elgin Hotels that we stayed with, in this journey.

We only stayed one night, but I would have been happy to have stayed longer. Its location was great, easy walking into town. The hotel is very old fashioned, but I have no problem with that. Food was of a good quality although a little limited in choice. It was quite good value for money.

The hotel was great and beautiful, the location is good, and the food was delicious, with impeccable service. The only complaint we had was that the bed was very uncomfortable, we kept waking up with back aches in the morning.

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
