This hotel brings in a classic experience in the Himalayas. The hotel is very conveniently located - within 5 mins walking distance from the Mall area and about the same distance from the Darjeeling Railroad station. We had a very family room - which is actually a suite with two bedrooms and one bath room. One of the bed rooms... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Rooms are clean.Polite staff. Located very close to Mall Road. This was the only place in Darjeeling where we really enjoyed the food. Lot of indoor games for kids. The only problem was they give only one free wi fi connection in each room. Overall very good experience.

Overall a good experience. The only problem we faced was that there was no parking available at the hotel and reaching hotel is a cumbersome job. After a tiring day one doesn't feel like climbing up the hotel. Otherwise the food and stay was comfortable the staff was also very cooperative. Overall a fun stay. The wifi was another problem.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For a tryst with the Himalayas, the one place of its kind is Hotel Sinclairs Darjeeling. The strategically located Sinclairs offers an inspiring view of Kanchendzonga on a clear day. Memories of that will never leave you. A few minutes pleasant walk from the town square Chowrasta, the hotel invokes the charm of an old country house. If the Himalayas are the piece de resistance of Darjeeling’s legendary charm, the hill station is full of magical beauties. Experience it all by being a guest at Hotel Sinclairs Darjeeling.A throwback to the Raj-era, the hotel exudes Victorian charm. Carved fireplaces, antique furniture, chandeliers and traditional artifacts will transpose you to a time you have always wanted to experience. Cozy atmosphere and warm hospitality will have you relaxed and fulfilled. You will enjoy the pampering by our friendly hosts and the “home away from home” feeling will ensure that you are comfortable throughout your stay at the hotel. ... more   less
