THe hotel is in walking distance from most of the attractions and good market areas. View from the rooms are lovely as it is almost at the top of a hill. The evenings are an wasy walk tot he most famous cafes down the street and to the chowrastha... Definitely worth staying at this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a big room heater, they are most accomodative

The Hotel was very good. The restaurant staff and the manager were very friendly and on their toes to serve us. From the balcony, a good view of Mt.Kanchendzonga could be seen. It's on the way to Tiger Hills.But the location is inconvenient. One has to park the car on the narrow lane very far from the hotel and find one's way uphill to reach the hotel. Maybe its because of the landscape of the town.Can't help it.

Room Tip: Choose a room which has the view of Kanchendzonga

As our booking for Sterling was cancelled, we were given this hotel by the travel agency. Rooms are very nice and clean. Food taste and quality excellent. service too is excellent.
The location was difficult to access. When we visited, some road repairing on the way to hotel was going on, so we had to park our vehicles few hundred meters away from the hotel. Except access to the hotel, overall stay was excellent.
