Absolutely safe to confess that this is one place you cannot go wrong with --what with the property being walking distance from the main market but despite that being so quiet and well designed to include beautifully set up rooms --a great restaurant and lovely flowers around the garden and lawns ---cute boutique type hotel with lots of character--

Lovely hotel, breathtaking sights of mountains from the deck and from the mountain facing rooms. The rooms are quite big with wooden flooring and large windows. From the outside, you may not be able to gauge the beauty/expanse of the hotel, once you are in the room/common areas, you would be enthralled by the neatness and grandeur of the interior.... More

The Silver Oaks Hotel is part of the Elgin chain and reflects British colonialism. The main sitting area, bar and dining room are posh, luxurious and very comfortable. The food was good and the service by all staff was excellent. The rooms vary in size, especially single occupancy. One of our "single" rooms was very small, the other "single" had... More

This is a hotel that has a old world charm to it. The rooms are beautifully done and cozy. The staffs is very helpful.

Room 56 is a suite that befits a Raj style hotel with elegant furnishings, a lounge area and views. Good food served by the enthusiastic and friendly Ramesh with his team of skilled dining room staff. Lovely gardens, good laundry, variable WiFi, grumpy male reception but graceful reception ladies. Easy walk into the town.

staff were there catering to our every need, so helpful. Beautiful building, lovely views when the mist cleared. Don't pick a room overlooking the street as you get kitchen fumes and much though I liked the food I don't want to smell it all day. We changed to a side view, which was bigger and less smelly.

Kalimpong is small but it was totally worth a visit to this town due to Silver Oaks Elgin. Overlooking the beautiful hills and having lived in the Hill facing rooms, it was totally a magnificent experience. Service is the finest I experienced among the entire trip to Northeast.

This is a classic hotel for sure. However, the neighbor, downwind of us, burned garbage for 7 hours which meant our room smelled like smoke. Luckily, we were not facing the noisy street. Food was yummy and we liked the town.
