Stayed 4 nights in all. Staff is very friendly and owners are very hospitable and try to make your holiday as comfortable as possible. Excellent views of the mountains from the rooms and the common lounge. Add to it the fact that the pricing is very competitive, it makes for a "must stay" location in Gangtok

Stayed for 3 nights in this gem of a boutique hotel in Gangtok. Its set in a quiet location, around 15-20 min from MG Marg, offering great views of the town. We were a big group of 14 and had the hotel pretty much to ourselves. What sets this place apart: - Great service: Aunty and her crew do a... More

This really is the only place to stay in Gangtok. Superb! We only had a few nights at the Hidden Forest but wished we'd had more. The rooms were spacious with private balconies and there is a large covered searing area that allows you to sit out, even when it rains (which it did!) and enjoy the stunning views. The... More

This was my second visit to the place, and Hidden Forest certainly did not disappoint. This time I stayed with my wife, kid and parents in the first week of January, 2015. Hidden Forest Retreat may be one of the few places in Gangtok where you get a sprawling garden attached with the property and a view of the mountains.... More

Let me talk about the short comings first. 1. The rooms don't have telephones so there is no conventional room service available. 2. You can't view the Kanchenjunga from this property. 3. Its quite a distance off the main town center. 4. You have to eat whats being cooked in the kitchen. No last minute change of mind entertained. But... More

A must visit hotel in Gangtok if you are planning for a nice stay. Food was awesome. They are really friendly and have world class furniture. Wi-fi service is available and the room service is so good that you need not to call anyone for anything.

Hidden Forest Retreat is a hidden gem. Every minute spent here felt like bliss! Tucked away quietly right before the Mall road, 10kms further above from the famous Mayfair Resort, we were more than happy that the latter was fully booked and we were forced to look for an alternative. To begin with, it's not a 5* property so don't... More

We were in Hidden Forest for three nights. You cannot ask for more when you are out on vacation. Staff is very helpful. The rooms are spacious with individual deck. Lunch, breakfast, dinner menu was changed as per your requirement. One day when it was raining outside, they served us hot pakodas for evening snacks as soon as we requested.... More
