“A place with its own heritage.”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a well located, decent and attractive hotel providing glimpses of Kanchenjunga, eastern Himalayas and Darjeeling town from its verandahs and terraces .Suites are available at reasonable tariff and give feeling of bygone era. Though maintenance is a bit lacking but the location and views of Darjeeling landscapes and mountains compensates for it. Chaurasta Mall, the central place of the town is just at a 5 minutes’ walk from here and on the way are a number of restaurants if you prefer eating out. The in house restaurant and bar is also very good and offer verity of food and beverages. Suite rooms are warm and cozy, provided with room heater and geyser. Coal fired fire place can also be enjoyed at an extra cost. The photographs, cannon and other memorabilia displayed prominently resurrect memories of colonial era. A very good place to stay and to enjoy being at the center of the town.

Room Tip: Suite rooms at first floor are good.

great place to stay, great location, view from balcony is awesome, hotel building was constructed more than 100 years ago, once enter into hotel a heritage feeling comes automatically, its a club property, administration maintained by ex- army men. room service is okay. but if someone stay in this hotel then should go out side for breakfast, lunch and dinner, because plenty of good restaurant available just outside of the hotel. The room we stayed was awesome, gave us a feeling of 1960's, if you stay here a must visit place is Glenary's Bakery just a minute walk, have your food and splendid view of the hill.

Room Tip: Try for room no 4 to room no 11

Excellent if you are interested in heritage building. Spacious rooms, though not well maintained. Be careful of mice and rats in few rooms those may cause damage to your valuables. Service is not praiseworthy. There is scope of improvement as far as housekeeping is considered. Located at one of the best places if you are interested to spend your holiday in the heart of the happening city market.

Room Tip: Prefer to stay in the rooms on the First Floor. You can get a glimpse of Himalaya and can can spend...

A very old property and the hotel reception staff is too arrogant and not at all helpful.It seems they are doing a courtesy by providing you a room.There are too many hidden costs involved in the room tariff,you would not be told about the fire place charcoal cost while they will light the same for you every evening and when you pay for your stay u get a shock.The room service is terrible and the beds have bugs.We had to change two rooms within one day to get warm water and that too the geysers would give you warm water after 1 hour.Overall very bad experience and the staff is not helpful.

Room Tip: Try going for boulevard's inn because there rooms are better.

We were lodged in VIP rooms and they were quite comfortable. Big size and wood paneled. Nice and clean toilet. Cozy rooms with fire place and external heaters. Only problem with this utility is service which is horrible. They have a good restaurant called Opium but staffs are not well trained. difficult to converse in English.

Room Tip: Room Nos. 4 & 6 were quite good.

It has the old Circuit house and a dak banglow kind of charm, but needs some more renovation ... great location, just that can be noisy at times ..... specially when all the cabs are honking at 3 am to take the people to tiger hills .... food is good .... service is terribly slow ... they dont serve breakfast ... dont even waste your time ... just walk across to Keventers bang opposite ... still a nice place just to sit, relax and watch the madness of the mall road below ...

Room Tip: Try and choose rooms on higher floors will be less noisy
