Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Hotel location is within 5 minutes walking distance to the main shopping street. We stayed for two nights in a spacious room with mobile heater, which provided adequate temperature in three room. Bar was well equipped, and restaurant dinner buffet as well as breakfast were both excellent. Staff was very kind and even offered hot water bottles for the night.

We found this place through good reviews on trip advisor and from friends.

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...

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
