I spent two nights of my trip in middle Pelling at hotel Hill retreat. The room on offer was spacious, clean with a spectacular view of the Himalayas and the kanchanjunga range. On request, an additional room was provided immediately with minimum fuss. I was a little under the weather when i arrived but the staff treated me to warm lime water every half hour in the freezing temps till I recovered completely. I was traveling with my mum and mamaji who are a little strident about food but the cook made the simplest of meals delicious. the staff here is always attentive and polite and endeavors to meet every request made. The good part about the location is that it is slightly away from the more active upper pelling, where there are too many tourist vehicles commuting up and down the narrow road- yet it takes only a 5-8 mins walk to get right into the centre of the town.The hotel boasts of a small organic garden in the backyard where they grow their own vegetables for staff ( i requested them to feed me whatever they were eating), and just two shops down the hotel is the local milkman selling organic milk! The second evening, the manager Dev Bista even strummed his guitar on request to belt out a few songs under starlight! A magical and most memorable stay, inspite of my being ill, which is really saying something! kudos and thank you to the hotel team for making me feel right at home so far away from home!
