My wife & I stayed with friends at this delightful old colonial hotel as part of a tour arranged by the Indian based travel company 'Legend and Palaces'. It's very much from a bygone age which is its appeal. It has a lovely high position on Observatory Hill which gives views over Darjeeling and the distant Kanchenjunga. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a cosy coal fire in the evening. The staff are very friendly and the chef provides plenty of varied and tasty food. The bar and lounge areas are comfortable and take you back to the Raj and a bygone era.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are one of the oldest (and prize winning) Colonial Hotels in India - with reviews from the Asia Pacific National Geographic Magazine and The Sunday Times of London. We offer truly authentic and original suites from the colonial tea planter days, with absolutely FULL BOARD (4 MEALS PER DAY). Our hotel is world renowned, with many famous film stars and other celebrities finding a path to our door. Truly a "destination and not just another hotel". It is like being invited as a private guest and asked to stay and relax for a few days. We are aptly described as "one of the last Colonial Homes in the World". We have both Colonial Suites & Cottages, as well as standard and superior accommodation. ... more less
