This was shared the top most place on TripAdvisor and living here made me realize the hospitality they shared compared to other hotels. Nor-khill is a heritage property and you can very well identify it from its lobby and reception area. Rooms are up to date with all the facilities you can expect from a good hotel. Warm water and...

The hotel is charming and in the old world style - old architectural details, ornate furnishings and lots of photographs of royalty and celebrities, The rooms were old but large and comfortable. Location is excellent - a convenient walk away from M. G. Road. The food...

The hotel has a good location with a beautiful view of the mountains. Their well maintained garden was my favorite corner - it is a lovely place to sit down with a book and coffee and spend the day. You will also meet Lisa and Hilton here ( two huge white dogs that the kids will love!) The property itself...

This hotel is set right next to a very large stadium which slightly lets it down. Besides that it is charming and the staff gentle and attentive. The meals served were delicious and I think that I ate my best palak (spinach) dish ever there. We particularly loved walking to the paved pedestrian shopping area as this is quite unusual...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elgin Nor-Khill ("the house of jewels")is known for its tradition and ethnic Sikkimese ambiance. It is now a luxury heritage property. The Kanchan garden affords a rich view of the hills with the Mount Kanchenjungha in the background, which inspired the Chogyal (King) of Sikkim to paint for hours. The Elgin Nor-Khill was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 and is the oldest heritage property in Gangtok, the property has played host to numerous celebrity guests such as his holiness The Dalai Lama, Hollywood stars Sir Richard Gere, Michael Douglas and Shirley Maclaine, the US Ambassador to India His Excellency John Galbraith and many more.
