3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We stayed at Tara palace at the beginning of our 9 day trip to North Sikkim. There were no tripadvisor reviews then as the property was new and my travel facilitator insisted that it is a five star property we should consider. We reached at 8-9pm and no-body even outside the hotel had heard the name of the place- but that could have been because it was too new! We stayed the firs two days and the hotel was dealing with new property hiccups. The rooms were huge and am sure the balconies must have had great views- if only there was no fog! Food was okay but the best thing about the place is the proximity to the mall road(MG marg) which is just an awesome road lined with shops, restaurants and cafes. Its the best mall road in any hill station in India I have seen- and I have seen most of them! If you stay at Tara palace, please keep frequenting the MG Marg- for food, coffee or just a nice stroll!

Never the less we thank you for your sincere feedback & I hope we have been able to iron out all the issues. if you ever revisit Sikkim i would like you to stay with us.

How can I praise this hotel enough. It really made my holiday a memorable one. We were there in between 19th - 25th December 2013. We took 3 rooms. All the rooms are big, spacious and extremely well planned and decorated. They all had balconies with mind blowing view anyone can ever imagine, the view of the Himalayas. The furniture in the room are immaculate with wonderful internal decoration. The beds are extremely comfortable and we all had very long and good nights sleep, woke up to the wonderful view of Kanchenjunga (only wished the weather to be slightly better). Considering the cold weather in Gangtok in this time of the year the temperature inside the rooms were nice and warm.
The staff working in the hotel were extremely helpful. The hospitality and respect they showed to us was of 5 star standard. The room service facilities was excellent.
The bar is really nice and cozy and we spent quite a lot of time there.
What do I say about the food. The Indian cuisine was the best I ever had. wonderful taste hence not spicy. Undoubtedly the best chef I came across. Mouth watering food.
I would recommend TARA PALACE to anyone and everyone. Best hotel in Gangtok.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but choose the rooms with view of Kanchenjunga

first of all let me start with the person who let this lovely experience be comfortable and fabulous ..His name is " Partha" and he is from the management team.. his mobile number is 08017716055... Is comforting assurances were enough comforting in an unknown different language place for us.. He is very friendly and so any one can contact him..he is the perfect solution.
Now for the hotel...very friendly front office or restaurant or house keeping staff.. the hotel is neat and tidy.. any day worth a stay..The food too is excellent and mouth watering...
the view from the restaurant or the room is so lovely..that any one would just admire it for hours
The hotel is near to M.G. Marg which is a nice place to go to.. for shopping or just to sip a leisure drink..
I would highly recommend Tara Palace to stay in..if you are in Gangtok ..

The hotel boasts some of the best views of the valley and himalayas. Located less than 5 minutes away from Gangtoks city centre walking distance from restaurants and shopping. By far the nicest places to stay at in Gangtok.

I had superior room which is a good size, as compared to the deluxe room, and comes with a balcony. It has a nice view of the valley in comparison to the view of the rooms across the narrow road for the deluxe rooms. However, on a cold day the small heater provided may not be enough to warm the room properly.

When I was there there were very few people, so perhaps I can only comment on how they would work with few guests. Overall the service at the restaurant the few meals I ate there were good, with some food good and some not so great. The staff at the restaurant and the hotel were friendly and helpful.

However, it took me 45 minutes to check out. Luckily I was checking out the evening before I was leaving so I did not get too stressed. As there were few people in the hotel, the hotel saving on energy costs decided not to provide hot water in the bathroom taps as they had said from 6-9 in the morning so don't assume the taps will have hot water as they say.The wifi is available in the lobby, though I did not try it.

The staff is very helpful if you need to get a taxi or need suggestions on what to do and how. Also, the hotel is within a 10 minute walk from a number of eateries and the main shopping area in the city.

We stayed for 2 nights in superior room and 1 night in deluxe room. The superior room is perfect and value for money. It has a very good view of the valley. The room has an attached balcony a tea table and 2 comfortable chairs overlooking the valley. Amenities are modern with hot water available from 6to 10 in the morning and evening. The deluxe room has a miserable view of facing the other building. Hence it is very warm inside. And what's worse is it does not have a fan hence the air is focused only on your legs and not circulated in the room. There are other hotels available for the same price with a much better view . Hence do not stay at Tara palace if you are selecting the deluxe room.
