Me and my friend went only for two days and just wanted to enjoy but at the same time wanted to stay in pleasant yet not too expensive hotel. We tried searching for hotels in Gangtok and to our surprise there are hundreds of hotel and it's hard to select one remotely. Thanks to reviews (all positive), Price (moderate) and location (very near to MG road and in the heart of the city) we booked it.

I feel great to write review and really like to compliment their service, help, cleanliness and friendly nature. Staff is superb who made sure we have a comfortable stay by providing best room possible, totally white hotel so it's peaceful, clean bathrooms (I just hate hotels with dirty bathrooms) and on top of it their valuable help in assisting us getting permits and helping in city visits. We just had breakfast and it was good too.

I would like to recommend to stay with friends, family without another thought, it must be the best one in this price. Looking forward to visit you guys again. Thanks Pranay and Vikas for helping us.

When we reached the hotel, we got a warm welcome. Rooms were neat and clean. Service was very good. Only problem we faced was hot water facility in the bath room. though the bath rooms are fitted with geycer, it was taking about 15 minutes to fill a bucket and also it was insufficient at that cold temperature. Food was excellent with very good service. Manager is very good at arranging the vehicles at a short notice. Really my friends and myself enjoyed the stay.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for the appreciation and wonderful review. Our team is very glad that you and your friends enjoyed your trip and the services.
I agree with you that the heating takes some time since the water which comes from springs & glaciers (sources) are very cold and it take some time to boil.
Thank you once again for choosing your stay with us. We would love to have you again as our esteemed guests.

I stayed in the holel from 25 jan13 to 30th Jan, with family, a good budgeted hotel. With clean and we'll furnished rooms and toilets, food quality ws nice, the staff are very co-operative with gud room service. Located on a walking distance to M G Marg. Overall its value to money. The owner Mr. Agarwal is a very gentel person.

We had stayed for our honeymoon at White Conch Residency. The people there were very courteous and were always there to attend whenever needed. Food was very good...It is located at the centre of the Sikkim and near MG market which one can walk and reach..

Room Tip: Although all rooms are good, its better to first check the rooms before check in..

The pluses of the room was the size, neatness and came equipped with all necessary furnishings.
The room was quite well-lighted as it has glass windows all around. The view from the largest window in that of the Kanchengunga mountain range and it is a sight worth waking up to! This teeny town has its greatest and one of the two shopping complexes, on the MG road very close by. The wooden floor helps absorb cold and you can dare walk bare foot despite the cold.
A huge plus is the size of the double bed and the excellent mattress used. Quite firm and gives you a comfortable sleep.
The staff is very courteous and try to help you in which ever way they can. The manager at the desk is quite informed about Sikkim and it is a pleasure to interact with him.
The minuses: Despite the fact that this is a hotel in the capital, they don't have the amenities provided in a larger city. Apart from the toilet roll, a soap and a shampoo sachet, there really isn't any other more-sophisticated stuff in the bathroom. And you don't really mind. That they have hot water from all taps 24/7 is enough. The best part is that the manager knows this and admitted that they, of course, can't compete with hotels of a bigger city.

Dear Subha,


Thank you for your wonderful review. Its pleasant to know your reflections on the hotel and the town. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay.

The pluses you mentioned was very thoughtful of you and at the same time I had a word with my manager this morning regarding the minuses you mentioned. We would be re furnishing on January with sofa cushions, adding more comfy pillows in quantity, change in drapes and adding some more of amenities. We would also be adding a new garden above the parking lot which I am really looking forward to. I hope you shall be back in town to see the pleasant change then.
