I visited with 2 other friends and I was very happy with the room number 301 and its unobstructed view of the Kanchenjungha from the room. We were not lucky as it was raining but it was a beautiful view nonetheless. The hotel room had basic amenities and was comfortable. I wish the extra bed was not a mattress though.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laced by horizon-kissing green tea-estates and foggy hills, Darjeeling is the 'Queen of the Hills' in all its own splendour. For the world tourists, trekkers and globetrotters, Darjeeling is the gate to a tranquil world that is filled with enchanting and breath-taking picturesque beauty. The sunrise from atop the Tiger Hill is mysticism beyond compare. And who ever misses a walk to the Mall Road for some woollens shopping, or a ride on the famous toy-train that whistles its way through the greenery? Darjeeling will wrap you in its beauty, and your stay at The Retreat will make your trip more memorable. Here at The Retreat, you can see the Kanchenjunga peak from every room! ... more   less
