Recently visited The Elgin for 3 nights as a family of 3 with a toddler. The place itself was beautiful! Like a large scale B&B set in the late 1800s. Awesome nostalgia and even better staff. They were very accommodating with all of our requests. The food prepared was diverse enough for our 3 dinners and breakfasts. Really no negatives.
*Be prepared if coming in from Bagdogra Airport as the ride is just around 3 hrs.*
