“Cedar Inn - A beautiful place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

My first impression of Cedar Inn was of the hospitable staff who made us comfortable and welcome .We had arrived from Pelling after a gruelling 7-8 hours on road.
Cedar has the old world charm and the rooms have fireplaces to keep you warm
View from the room is of the great Kanchenzonga which takes your breath away !

Food in general is good with a choice between Indian and continental .Location is also very good.Though it is not on the mall road , it is a mere 5-7 minutes driving distance

Room Tip: choose a room with a view of the Kanchenzonga so that you can sip a hot cup of darjeeling tea just l...

View of Kanchenjunga from the window, the bon fire in the room and the lush green garden is what makes "Cedar Inn' a place to be in Darjeeling. The cottages are neat and clean and the chirping of birds around would add excitement to your stay. Friendly staff too !!. But the food options are limited for Veggies.

Room Tip: Chose the cottage which has the view of Kanchenjunga !!!

The hotel is up in the hills but there is no problem to get a taxi from down below at the mall.
great food! dinner has to be ordered until 18 h, they change the menu every day (no menu card, you hear about the dishes of the day in the lobby.
definitely try Indian food for breakfast if offered! I prefered it to the egg varieties!!
bar opens if you ask!! (until 9 p.m.)
very nice garden and staff is also very very nice!
wifi in the lobby. also have shuttle service to the mall if needed.
the room we had was also very nice with sitting area and you could smoke in the room as well (windows to open)
would definitely stay there again!

Look at the photo, and its exactly like this. Though its better known competitor Windermere is more charming and romantic, I would still rate Cedar Hill as the best Hotel In Darjeeling. Imposing building, Elegant interiors, very neat and clean, very good dinner, breakfast limited but very tasty, and the location is just perfect. It towers over Darjeeling at the top of a hill, away from the filthy mess that is Darjeeling, its got a shuttle service to the main square which is quite regular.

The one point lacking is that the management gives a very polite planned no if you ask for any minor facility. But that doesnt matter because they do their main job efficiently, and you get more than what you have paid for. The junior staff is very good, restaurant and housekeeping is excellent.

The hotel is abit out of the main noisy city up the steep hill and that is the one reason why I liked it. From my room, I could get a direct view of the Kanchenjunga mountain ranges(Even better than the Tiger Hills for which I had to disupt my sleep and had to get up at 4 in thje morning in chilly December !! I hated it.)
The rooms are very clean, with hot water, cozy fireplaces. Room heaters are provided on request. The staff was was very courteous and polite. It also has a garden facing the entire darjeeling valley.
Food menu was limited but everything used to be fresh and good. I stayed there for 4 days and it was great time there. Being in the outskirts of city, hotel provided complimentary car pickup to and fro the market.
