Silver Tips is a good base to explore tea country. It's not too close neither too far from the town centre, in fact it makes a very pleasant walk to and from the market, you get to see the local people going about their daily business and it feels perfectly safe and peaceful (I really have to say that people here are fantastically friendly and helpful). Even standing at the hotel gate watching people go by is a very pleasant experience. The whole hotel is movie themed, which is fun even for those who are not familiar with Bollywood. Apparently it's the hotel where Ang Lee and crew stayed while shooting The Life of Pi. Dinner is served in a huge hall with a stage where Bollywood hits are performed live, the singers are competent but the sound from the mics is harsh and a tad too loud, echoes down to the rooms. I always bring my earplugs, though, there's always some chance of noise during trips, never let it take away the pleasure of travelling. Rooms are spotless, bathroom ok, reception polite and helpful, free wifi. There is also a spa facility, with a doctor giving ayurveda treatments at very reasonable prices. He was nearly fully booked when we arrived so only few people from our group managed to get sessions, and they were very satisfied. Food ample and decent.
