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

We were a family of 3 (including an infant of 15 months). This by far was the best elgin hotel. We also visited their Darjeeling and Kalimpong properties, which are good but not quite like Norkhill. a) Staff - The people in the hotel were so friendly. They went out of the way to ensure we were comfortable throughout our... More

We stayed here for almost 4 nights. The welcome drink after a long journey from Mumbai-kolkatta-Gangtok was refreshing. The live music and games for X-mas were good. The food spread was so good that we felt at home for entire of gangtok stay. We missed their food spread on rest of our Sikkim trip. Service is quick and prompt. The... More

Well, Gangtok itself is mesmerizing but if you are at Elgin right next to a fantastic football stadium and serene hills it makes it much more worth it. All the rooms are thoughtfully and the entrance lobby is really grand.
