The Elgin Darjeeling is very pleasant. It is beautifully decorated, most of the staff have been around for years and know how to serve, and its location is quite central (5 min walk to the Mall).
However, for a property of its standing in the erstwhile Queen of Hill Stations, the food is so-so, there are no views worth mentioning and the twin beds are seriously narrow.
It is very pleasant to sit out in the garden, though, and look down on the town.
