Me and my wife stayed here for a day and I must say the service is just too good...the food quality and taste was matching the taste of food we have back at our home in Delhi...!!.. The rooms are also pretty spacious and airy too !! Kudos to team Sood's garden retreat team :-)

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

The Sood Garden Resort is an average hotel, but I believe in Kalimpong its a mid budget hotel. The best hotels are Elgin and Silver Oak. The room was large and basic. The new wing is much better. The old wing is quite Dam and soggy . We had gone in May and the rains had started. It is around... More

An Amazing vicinity and a beautiful scenery. Had some mind blowing rooms and was really comfortable, definitely a perfect place to stay. The food was spectacular some I've never tasted before. We had an amazing fun time and we spent a good time having a campfire in the area.

Absolutely magnificent place, clean spacious rooms, great environment, spectacular views and great service. Truly the most preferred place of stay during my whole trip. Recommended to everyone. The only complain I can think of is the moth/mosquito infestation during the night. KEEP THOSE WINDOWS CLOSED.
