AH !summerhouse of Maharaja of Nazargunj is now MayFair resorts Darjeeling. No doubt you experience royalty.
The rooms ie. cottages are smaller with all necessary gadgets and most furniture is wood which is aplenty in Hills. Its the place to stay in Darjeeling quite close to the Mall, which is the only place along with mahakal temple worth mentioning in the so called 'Queen of Hills' fading away into oblivion. May Fair has most things in place for a recreational 3 days of tranquitly and the food needs a special mention es. their authentic South Indian varieties esp their crispy Vadas and Dosas, Sambhar still needs more work on the magic masala, but their continental and also basic yellow dal was tasty. My favourite was the Kichadi made perfectly in gujju style.

The room service is efficient and so is their house keeping keeping up the standards of hospitality.

A Bright Ray in the Hospitality Business.
Disclaimer. My food reviews are for the hard core vegetarian .

Room Tip: cottage no. 103 has good views.

Mayfair is the Best place to stay in Darjeeling. Its a beautiful property with cozy british interiors of the rooms and lobby. Almost all the rooms have a brilliant view of the valley. I had a change to stay for 4 nights last week for business. The housekeeping staff is very courteous and warm. Moreover for our conference we got all the instant support from the Hotel staff instantly. What I loved the most is the Lobby and common area which has an amazing Tenzin Library. Only regret is you will struggle to find some good wifi connection here. But the internet in the lobby is decent. Overall an amazing place to stay..

'Opulence' is what comes to your mind when you first enter this property, and is you happen to be a fan of Old British style architecture, you are sure to fall in love with this place. That is what exactly happened to me. I fell in love with this property. Brilliantly done it has a distinct colonial charm and a mystical appeal to it. The rooms are perfectly done in the Old Colonial style too. Done up luxuriously with wooden floors, antique decor and those lovely fireplaces, the rooms make for your second home in an instance.

Room Tip: If possible go for the attic room.....its simply superb...a different feel and style.

The rooms were nice and comfortable, though a bit small. Room service prompt and staff very friendly and helpful. The food (breakfast and dinner) was average. It is at a walking distance from the town centre so was easy exploring city on foot. The best thing about the hotel was the fantastic view it offered of the mountain ranges. Would stay again if i go back to Darjeeling.

Room Tip: Any room/cottage from 104,106,107 have excellent views of the mountain ranges.

After having stayed at Mayfair Puri in Oct'11, we decided to experience their Darjeeling property too. We had booked it for 1 night stay only, but after looking at the property, my family fell in love with it and insisted me to drop the next day travel to Kalimpong and extend the 2nd night stay there only. 1st day happened to be mine & my son's birthday. They treated us with 2 complimentary cakes and became part of our celebration. On the day of leaving, we had to leave early at 6am so as to catch our train from NJP. They took all the pains and were ready with our packed nice breakfast well in time. We will cherish these memories ever. I would call Mayfair-The perfect in hospitality.
