Cliff View Residency
Ranked #11 of 19 Lachung B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Before I write about the hotel, I would like to write about the journey to Lachung from Gangtok.
The journey is not for the light hearted, roads are not good so if you have some health issues avoid going. Having said that the journey is quite an experience.
now the hotel, well lachung is a very small village, all the supplies come from Gangtok.
So to expect 5 star service is a bit too much. The location of the hotel is amazing and the view of the mountain is awesome, but the property is not maintained adequately. The service is decent and people out there are helpful.The food served is simple and good.
i would recommend this hotel at the same time would like to inform that one shouldn't expect a lot in terms of service.

We were 3 couples who visited the Hotel in June 2013 for our trip to Yumthang Valey and Zero point. All our rooms were cliff facing and offered amazing views.. The hotel has got young and energetic staff who are humourous in their own way and makes the stay different as compared to other properties.. They did take care of few of our requirements.. No doubt Lachung is a remote place and almost all hotels in Lachung are not equipped to provide adequate facilities.. Would like to mention that all rooms had LCD TVs and geysers in bathroom had proper heating capacity unlike other hotels in Lachung... Guess this is the only hotel in Lachung with only vegetarian food and prepares jain food as well and hence we chose this property..

However, the hotel does not have a dedicated reception area neither it does have a telephone in room.. So it is strange travelling down from the rooms in search of a hotel staff for any requirement.. Bathrooms are old fashioned and dining area is small.. so in case of many guests visiting the dining area at a time it becomes too crowded and noisy..

Considering the remoteness of Lachung and similiar or worse service levels in other hotels in Lachung, you can consider staying at Cliff view. However, if you do not want to compromise on service levels and other points as mentioned above, would suggest to pay extra bucks and stay at Yarlam Resort !

first you climb all 3 floors searching for anyone at all, as there is no reception/lobby, then you chase him again to clean the small rooms, then you chase him for a room heater and you pay Rs. 300, (wrong to pay for heater as the gen set is put off at midnight ) then you give up on the TV and my BSNL mobile does not have coverage. So why we went there ? The view from the tiny balcony is a mountain face with snow on top and waterfalls, Breathtaking !!
The next day we went to Yumthang valley and Zero point, 30Kms (which is similar to gulmarg-but no cable car)

Room Tip: Tip : go to the front of the hotel, enjoy the view and stay elsewhere !

We stayed in the Hotel for 2 nights in April 2013- we had Super Deluxe Rooms. Rooms are excellent (very nice wooden paneling, running hot water, large size, good beds and bed linen etc.). Other rooms did not look too great so request this room when booking! Food was included in our package- food quality was very good (VEG ONLY) and the cook is brilliant. Lovely paranthas, bread toast, Poha etc, for breakfast, daal, roti sabzi for lunch (2 sabzis) and soup and different veggies and dall for dinner. Chef and waiters have a very bright and humorous way of handling people, sing very nice songs and are very friendly. Feels a bit like home. Hotel location is awesome and the view of snow capped mountains and the cliffs is truly to die for!

If you are visiting Lachung,Cliff View Residency is your best choice..Reasonably priced, they give you the best service.The view from the hotel is beautiful.Wooden floored rooms help a lot in the chilled atmosphere.The taste of the food is too good and they surprised us by serving hot tasty poha at 7am, (it is rare in sikkim that you will get to eat poha!!) before we left for Yumthang.The service is also good and the rooms are spacious.The only problem is that they dont provide heaters and as the temperature is quite low,you have to do with the blankets only.All in all it is the best you can get in a place like Lachung!

We stayed in the hotel for a night and the next morning we were off to visit Yumthang valley and then back to Gangtok. I should mention the great food we had in Cliff view residency at Lachung. They had prepared pure vegetarian food and even Jain food (without onions, garlic) was available. Jain food was prepared specially for some Jain guests.

The view of the mountains from the hotel were great.

Coming to the minus points, the room provided to us was very small. When we reached the hotel, it was raining and all our clothes had gone wet. We asked for two room heaters and they had only one for which they charged Rs.250/- from us.

Overall I would say, this is a hotel with great view and great food minus some basic facilities.
