By all accounts, planters club was one of the best places to stay in Darjeeling, but sadly no more. The rooms are huge with separate sitting area, dressing area and bedroom. However, the furnishings are old and need immediate renovations. The toiler was dirty and very clumsy.
The hotel offers no room service but they do have a nice restaurant called Opium. However, the service is really pathetic. It took the restaurant 45-50mins to bring food for 4 adults.
The hotel's location is its biggest plus point, located right under the mall. It is walking distance to the mall as well as the legendary eatries like Keventers and Glenarys.
