me and my husband spent 5 days in darjeeling in march. this was our first trip to India so we were not sure what to expect. the whole trip was wonderful but our stay at Shangrila Regency deserves a special mention. We booked the room from the UK by email and the manager was really helpful and gave us lots of helpful advice. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and courteous. we stayed in one of the attic rooms and could even see the mountains (when they weren't covered in cloud) from the bed!! The hotel is spotlessly clean and we enjoyed eating our breakfast in the rooftop lounge where you can have a pot of Darjeeling tea and watch the changing panorama of the hills and mountains. We had a mixed bag of weather with some rain and a lot of cloud but when the kanchenjunga is visible we could see why Darjeeling is still a popular tourist spot - its absoulutely breathtaking.
We would definitley recommend Darjeeling to any visitor to India and in particular a stay at the Shangrila Regency.
