You may stay in Gymkhana Club and get your meals from Big Bite and Lunar (for South Indian food). May is high-season in Darjeeling, you should book the hotel in advance.

The tariff would be around 2-2.5K for double room. You may try WBTDC Tourist Lodge (close to Gymkhana) also. Which can be booked on www.westbengaltourism.gov.in

The itinerary can be as follows :

Day1 Arrival - afternoon : roaming around the mall

Day2 Early morning - Toy train ride. After lunch - HMI, Zoo, Tea Garden.

Day3 Toy train ride, excursion to Rock Garden.

Day4 Ropeway ride (subject to open), afternoon - shopping.

Pl . let me know if I can book any of the hotel one week in advance,because it is too early now to book for May as I may not be sure to get leave so early.

Sorry, itinerary of Day2 Early morning - 'Toy train ride' to be read as Tiger Hill. Toy train ride is already there in day 3. It was a typing mistake.

Seven Seventeen is a good hotel. I second brave1's suggestion. Getting room before one week is a bit sceptical. Anyway, try to make a provisional booking with a token advance, if they agree.

Every hotel has its own menu for breakfast. In veg breakfast, you'll get Bread, Butter, Jam, Dosa, Idli, Aloo Paratha etc in breakfast. Go for CP, if necessary, you can always change that to MAP.

thank you verymuch Mr.Roy. 1) . Regarding toy train ride it is mentioned in some fora that we have to book in advance.Is that necessary? I have browsed IRCTC website .Ticket for joy ride is mch more costlier than ordinary travel from Darjeeling to Ghum in train from darjeeling to kurseong.

2). If we go by train to Ghum , can we get taxi for returning back to darjeeling?
