We really enjoyed high tea about 16h30 here at the Elgin. The waiters put us right in front of the fireplace, which was heavenly given how cold it was this week. Thoroughly enjoyed tea and snacks for about 1.5 hours--- relaxing and talking. The Elgin itself is a lovely hotel/bar/restaurant, and staff were so friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Famous for its chocolates, the place also has on offer great bakery products and a coffee shop with a good view. This place is a must visit during your visit to Darjeeling.

we went to Elgin for high tea and were relanctutly served by dirty waiters with attitude on top of that. The room is very Old Raj and nice but the food is disapointing: scones were dry with no cream nor butter, sandwiches were soso, the pakhoras were good though. Again lack of serious management like so many indian ventures.

We visited the Elgin for high tea (unfortunately the rooms were a tad out of our price range!). Whilst the high tea was nothing like the high tea you would expect in the UK, for a mere £3.50 or so one cannot complain. The surroundings were lovely and we felt really welcome, perfect if you feel like an afternoon of... More

Stayed for 4 days in 2010. We got the attic room which was stunningly beautiful. It felt like a tree house. Room had great views of the mountains. Food was average and so was service. The hotel lacks a spa which would be an excellent facility to have. Bar is a nice place to sit around and read during the... More
