The room was spacious with a nice view of the hills with big windows. Room was nicely furnished and comfortable. They have a small nice garden... More

A perfect place to lodge in-one line which may define Sood's Garden Retreat;a taveller's must-be addrress at Kalimpong.Our short stay at this place was a memorable one.Undoubtably,the best hotel in Kalimpong was a few steps away from the main city area.The speciality about the rooms are that you can adorn yourself by sitting on the sofa by the window with...

Nestled in the lap of mother nature, with clouds hustling down from the mountain tops to greet you, is one picture-perfect backdrop of the resort. We had stayed in this beautiful property on the first night of this New Year and I have no qualms in admitting that the stay really gave a charming start to the New Year. A... More

We (self and wife) arrived at the hotel on 27th night. I had booked a Standard room through Cleartrip. However the manager offered me a semi deluxe suite without any extra cost. Sweet. The room was very spacious and neat. The room had a view overlooking the valley. Bathrooms were clean. However we faced some problem with the geyser which... More

The only correct bit about the name of Sood's Garden Retreat is the first bit. It is owned by the Sood family. However, I had chosen it after reading about the garden and the hotel's quiet location. Neither is correct. The "garden" comprises some potted plants and two tiny, unkempt patches of grass, one of which is used for drying... More

The hotel is about a 15-20 minute walk from Kalimpong market and has spectacular views - or rather it would do if the weather hadn't been so bad during our visit. We had occasional glances of the mountains in between lots of clouds and fogs. We had room 101 - next door to reception. It was ENORMOUS - way too... More

5 Miles is where you will find us, just 800 meters before the hustle and bustle of the market area set amidst nature with a breathtaking view, on the sunniest part of the hills. For whatever you have in mind you can't be better located. Near to all the site seeing interests. Laze on the rolling lawns and gardens or just admire the glory of the mighty Mt. Kanchenjunga from the restaurant, balconies or lawns. Let the children get naughty on the outdoor play area, swings and slides. ... more   less
