A warm welcome and excellent service from everyone at this Heritage Hotel. Excellent Bar! Food very traditional and good quality. Rooms very comfortable. Our brief stay did not enable us to explore fully but was sufficient to tempt to plan a return trip and we will certainly choose the Elgin Nor-khill hotel. Lovely views of the Himalayas from the garden.

Excellent old-world-charm hotel where they provide the local Cherry brandy as a welcome drink upon arrival providing instant warmth in the cold weather! A well manicured lawn makes for (limited) outdoor seating. The best part is that while this hotel is in the heart of the city it remains undisturbed and peaceful providing its guests the best of both worlds...

We had two cosy rooms with room heaters, hotel water inside bathrooms and morning tea service in room when requested. Hotel has nice breakfast & dinner included with good but mainly Indian dishes. This could be a problem for non-Indian foreign...

The food was the most amazing i have had. The stuffed kulcha was out of this world and the turnip peas curry was truly exceptional. The chef is from bihar and truly enjoys his profession and appreciated that we enjoyed the great food and the simplicity of tastes true to the mountains.

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. The lobby is resplendent in the bright folk Sikkimese art with design motifs depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas and ornate Sikkimese furniture (bachu, chocsue) and traditional jewelry. ... more   less
