Elgin Nor-Khill - Iconic for the fascinating history of illustrious people who have visited it, warm, inviting, well-lit with vibrant decor and above all outstanding staff. The rooms are overall spacious, very comfortable with a beautiful view. Sitting around in Elgin's lawns sipping tea/coffee with their cookies and cakes makes you feel... More

The hotel was straight out of the fifties, the lawn is a complement to the the weather. A quiet , small hotel in which you can be pampered. The staff is attentive to your needs, the breakfast is good. Food is not a strong point but the evening tea is just too relaxing. A must visit for people who just... More

Myself and two friends stayed here in Feb and were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! The staff were so friendly and courteous, and the food was very good too. The main lounge is just elegant and beautiful, and the whole hotel is kept very clean. Only one of our rooms... More

Good - the lovely old building with traditional furniture. The staff are lovely,though there are at least twice as many as needed. Rooms in the annex are good with lots of space but those in the original building are not so hot. Bad - the food. It was TERRIBLE. They can't even cook curry. You pay for half board but... More

Though this hotel's heyday is long gone and it exudes a charm which is peculiarly dated, it offers the modern traveller space, tranquillity and style in a town not noted for any of these attributes. Comfortable rooms and decent dining facilities are the key to its continued success.

We stayed there during the last week of February. The hotel is very very well maintained and from the Gatekeeper to the Manager everyone is very welcoming and well behaved. The only sad part was the welcome drink. The restaurant offers great food and they cater to special requests as well. The rooms are old but very nicely maintained and... More

Beautiful hotel perched overlooking the valley in Gangtok. The things that immediately envelope you is the friendly staff, the warmth of the hotel and the beautiful colorful and cultural furnishings. This is a step back in time to a beautiful residence of the king, fabulously managed and maintained and full of history throughout. The food was lovely, particularly the Sikkimese... More
