“Re treat to mountain”
Reviewed July 1, 2011

Our journey to Darjeeling and stayed at THE RETREAT was an outstanding experience since it’s excellent location at the lap of Himalaya gave us a paradise beauty, enjoyed the day by looking Kanchenjunga from room ,furthermore the warmth of staff members ,good quality of food ,overall a homely atmosphere were so admirable that we would like to stay at RETREAT every time.

i really don't know that how i should start writing about my experience at DARJEELING as i have visited that city countless time (almost) for business purpose and the absence of neatness always caused distractions in me. but finally due to keen interest of my wife we went there at the weekend and stayed at hotel RETRAT. what to say, it changed my whole conception. the beauty i search, the green, the serene, and of course the hospitality every thing made a new impression on my mind.
i will love to go over there again and will enjoy the open window and its horizon with a cup of Darjeeling tea.
regards,
kuntal bhattacharyya.

Was booked and recommended by Travelmasti , they said its a good property , but as you get into the room you can feel the foull smell . If you happen to peep in the kitchen you can see the filthyness. Infact saw one of the persons smoking . Bathroom fittings are old and are badly operated .Only stay if you do not have a better option.

The staff was enterprising and friendly always willing to go the extra mile to make our trip comfortable. The rooms had excellent views, majestic enclosed balcony overlooking the valley, heater that worked and hot water geyser. Good food, customized to our needs, served with care.

Cons:
One room did not have hot running water as the geyser was not functioning however staff got us hot water.

Indira Bhat :
Date: 18th April 2011.
Hotel : The Retreat, Dargeeling, India
We stayed in this hotel for three nights (8th, 9th and 10th of April 2011) with two daughters. This hotel is a real gem and has all you ask for. The Friendly service , Hot food all the times, the home like comfort the hotel provides is exceptional. Our rooms had great view of the mountains. We have stayed in several hotels many times , but when we left this hotel we felt really sad. We missed staying at this hotel. Next time when we vacation in Darjeeling, my first choice would be this hotel for stay. I would recommend this to one and all.

Room Tip: Talk to the manager, he is very helpful.

The hotel is placed amongst the Darjeeling's best location wise. It offers excellent view of Kanchenjunga as its alongside the view point on the Mall Road of Darjeeling.
Room service and food quality is very good. Good management and a very helpful one too.
With the services and splendid view it offers, the tariff is not at all heavy on the wallet.
During our 3 days stay at the hotel's deluxe room, we enjoyed many amenities such as lounge, library and internet/computer access.
I recommend this hotel highly as I am only able to remember pleasant experience about the stay.
