It is always an amazing experience to go to both nor-khill and mount pandim. The fixed menu lunch always has a good spread and great taste. One should definitely spend some time in the bar which is relaxing and enjoyable. Also the lawns ffer an amazing view of the stadium and the valley beyond. The rooms are done up well... More

We spent two nights at this hotel, and we felt that it was the most disappointing in the Elgin chain. It felt that they were trying too hard and it didn't quite work. We were expecting the usual Indian buffet and were surprised to be greeted with Chinese food which was only average. On the second night they served Sikkimese... More

We had a truly awful stay in this hotel. It transpired they were hosting a Tibetan wedding, which was fascinating in its own right, but the first night they put us in a suite overlooking a building site that also turned out to be just above where all the wedding preparations started at 5 am, followed by the building work...

This hotel was built in the 1930s as the king's royal guest house and as a kind of dignitary is exactly what you feel like after a warm welcome by the staff and a welcome drink, some kind of very tasty local liqueur.

Though Gangtok has been a favourite destination since 1999, this was the first time I was staying at the Nor Khill. The greatest strength of the hotel is its service and the staff.

The hotel was great and beautiful, and we were able to observe a socker game in the stadium next door which was good fun. The location is good, and the food was delicious, with impeccable service. The only complaint we had was that the bed was very uncomfortable, we kept waking up with back aches in the morning.
