Located just above kaventers with a panoramic view of Mount kanchanjangha. Rooms are big with king size bed. Wooden floors squeaky. Room service takes some time, so one needs to be satisfied with just hot tea/coffee.

If you want to feel the British Colonial culture with 19th century decor, can choose the place, the rooms are huge with all modern amenities but they dont have room service. The best part during your stay you can avail their club. Its very near to Mall.

I visited the Planters club last week with family and friends. I had earlier stayed at this place around 25 years ago. Sadly it felt that the rooms had not been renovated since then. Such a beautiful property lying completely wasted. Being located in a prime location, this place could do wonders. Shabby rooms, dilapidated bathrooms, uncomfortable beds, run down... More

Let me start of by saying that I would have given this place a poor rating if it wasn't for the great location and the view. This colonial era hotel sits on a hill, and is right opposite the famous cafe Keventers. The club has an outdoor seating area from where you can see the mountains and valleys. The rooms... More

This is a lousy piece of hotel which is grossly over publicised. Unfriendly staff, unclean rooms, high-priced facilities. I did not at all get why residents need to pay separately for the coal bucket to light the fireplace of a 4000K room! Highhandedness everywhere. The heritage is all they have got. No attempt of maintenance or upgradation. In fact the... More
