We stayed in the hotel during our Sikkim Trip in April, 2014. The hotel is just not worth the money. The lifts are antiquated and make noise that makes it impossible for anybody to get a sleep during the night. The service is really pathetic. The quality of food is just subpar. We had also stayed in another hotel (Suhim... More

Staff are friendly but Wi-Fi is bleak like most of the other properties in the Hills of WB and Sikkim. No parking at the Hotel which is a sort of drawback if... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a very pleasant experience. The ambiance is wonderful and the rooms are large and cozy. The location is average but convenient. You can get taxis for local visits and jeeps for visit to Nathula pass, Baba Mandir and Changu lake.

Tamarind Hotel Location is good - close to market. One can hire a share cab from here to reach the market. Rooms are quite spacious. The hotel looks like under renovation. Because though the room bed and wardrobe looked new furniture however, the carpet was looking very old and dirty. Bath was good too however, geyser heating capacity was less... More
