Nice place to relax - near the Mall, and lots of facilities inside to enjoy... with a cup of Darjeeling tea or some drinks, next to the fire place, or in the library...

I went to Elgins for tea three times and each time the tea room was empty and so peaceful. We ordered a small pot of tea which came with cookies and cakes for only 150 rupees. We chilled on the wifi for a while on the comfy couches. It's so cozy there in a cold day. There's a fireplace going... More

We stayed at Elgin so had most of our meals here, which were mostly buffets as it was included in our package. The spread was mostly India (veg and two non veg options) with a pasta or noddles thrown in. The breakfast was part english and part Indian - eggs on order, cornflakes, Indian options like Idli, uttapam, poha etc.... More

Minus the confused desk managers, the hotel is plush with British antiques and excellent service staff. It's extremely comfortable and the bed warmers are a homey surprise. The location is central to everything and they have excellent drivers - especially ask for Sunil. He is always in a good mood, knows everywhere - even remote specialty shops I wanted to... More

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!
