GLENBURN TEA ESTATE
The Glenburn Tea Estate is expensive but worth it. Not far from Darjeeling it is really a first class establishment. Situated amongst a working tea plantation with rooms straight out of the 1920's many with views of Kanchenjunga. Remembering of course that October and November are the clearest months for seeing the mountains. March onward you will get the smoke from farmers burning off undergrowth etc. Great food, great staff, great rooms, generally great plumbing and electrical fittings, decor perfect and location perfect if you want to escape the hurly burly of India. Getting to this part of the world can be a trial as the roads from the airport are the worst in India. Yet if you stay in the area for 7 or so days it is not an issue. Just make sure you know what days the strikes are on because you may not be able to travel anywhere on those days. One of the best hotels in India. Can't imagine how someone could not enjoy this hotel.
