Did not stay but looking round found it very 1930's England, group of bungalows with character furniture. But did have 'high tea', served from 4pm each day in one of the sitting rooms. Beautifully presented small sandwiches, shortbread, cake and scones with jam and cream and, of course, excellent tea and all served with a smile. The ONLY place to take tea in Darjeeling and a blazing fire as well.
