The hotel staff is very welcoming and hospitable. You would not get the WOW effect like any 4-5 star hotel so don't keep high hopes. The sitting area is very spacious with beautiful pictures of their kings and queens and loads of history to share but the rooms are small. The bathroom is also small but with good supply of... More

The Elgin Nor-Khill has a way of seeping into you and lulling you into a tranquil zone even before you realize it. It doesn't have grand size or picturesque location to awe you but whatever it lacks in these departments, it makes up in the sheer coziness of its guest rooms and the quiet, efficient manner in which the property...

The Stay was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and courteous, especially Mr. Ajay at the reception extended all the help in managing our Gangtok trip. Cleanliness has been specially taken care of. Food quality was awesome. It is indeed a heritage property which provides value for money. I definitely recommend for this property.

We were wondering how good the hotel will be when our agent suggested this hotel for our stay in Gangtok - and I must say, we have no regrets for choosing this hotel. The hotel is located not very far from the commercial centre of the city and is next the football stadium... the views are not very great but... More

This was my first experience at this hotel and it was really very good. I just loved this place and the hotel. From now on, whenever I visit Gangtok, I will stay in this hotel. Rooms were comfortable and the food was pretty good. The staff was nice and polite. Norkhill has it's own charm.

Nor-Khill is a beautiful little hotel situated in Gangtok. The lobby is beautiful, beds comfortable. The buffet meals are really delicious. The rooms provide a view of a nearby football stadium, and the players at you if you do. The gardens are picturesque. It is very near the Mall Road, and the people at the Desk are willing to help...

QUAINT CHARM This was my second stay at Norkhil, and I really enjoyed its quaint charm. Started as a royal guest house in 1932, this property is presently operated by the Elgin Group. The old furniture and pictures on the walls are lovingly maintained. The staff is extremely courteous and one is treated like an honoured guest in an aristocratic... More

A well managed old hotel - Heritage really. Good wifi in the Lounge. Excellent staff. Food good. Comfortable, spacious rooms. The stadium view rooms are best in my opinion. Lounge and outside lawn area are comfortable and welcoming. I'd stay there again.
