Pineridge Hotel
Ranked #77 of 126 Darjeeling B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Hi..

We stayed there on 28 Feb,1st March. Location is pretty good. You can access the mall at any point of time during your stay. It is 30 seconds walking distance from the mall,4 minutes to Glenary's,6 minutes to Caventers.

For the older people it might be diffecult to walk through as after certain point, no vehicles are allowed and you have to walk through with your luggage.

At night, the age old hotel reminds you about the hanuted stories you heard from your ancesters..

Jokes apart- They are having big rooms,fireplaces. the bathrooms are big too. In the morning you will have fantastic view from room no 229,230.

But it needs some more maintenance. In March first week also,without lighting on the fireplaces, it is hard to stay in the rooms..

I can recommend this property to others..

Room Tip: 229.230 deluxe room you can stay. But take a look before they will handover the room key to you.

This is an awesome hotel. The location of the hotel is very attractive, just over the mall. This can become a heritage hotel. What is needs is proper maintenance. Hospitality is beautiful. Rooms are superb. Lawn beside is very good, full of variety of flowers...

Room Tip: Choose 2nd floor rooms facing the road.

My stay at this hotel was very peaceful, comfortable and relaxing
Pros:-
1. Just next to Chowrasta.
2. The room I stayed in had beautiful natural views.
3. No disturbance of any sort.
Cons:-
1. Not satisfied with the room service. Have to manage for the things.
2. Very valuable property at prime location but not maintained at all. If It is maintained properly not any other hotel in Darjeeling would be better than this.
3. No vehicle goes up to the hotel so have to face little on arrival and departure days.
Neutral:-
Hotel Manager Mr. Suraj is nice, THAND(cool) type man does not like to bother much, but helped me indeed. He is requested to show bit personal interest.

(They have one restaurant named “MINUTE MEALS FIESTA” right on the Chowrasta, food preparation is nice mostly (except south Indian), staff mainly Cashier cum Manager Ms Sushma is very accommodating and takes personal care. Keep it up Sushma and team.)

My stay at Pineridge was excellent, Rooms are big and spacious, with fireplace at every room, Reception are very helpful and Food was good. The view from the Room was excellent. Only issue was that the property is old, but very good location just next to The Mall. E recommend everyone to stay here before trying anywhere else.

I come across this when I am looking for a good option to stay on my second visit in Darjeeling next month.
Well I stayed at this hotel in October 2007 (not as travel dates indicated as the system won't allow me) with my graduate college group. I wanted to check out immediately but since it was a group thing I had to compromise.
The rooms were pretty damp, unclean and reaked of rottening wood. Quit like a very old Indian Govt. building.
I wonder how people give ratings like royal stay for this place! That makes me doubt the other reviews :(
J'ai des plans de visiter Darjeeling le deuxième fois et ce sera le dernier choix pour moi!!
