“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

One of the loveliest hotels with a super view on the valley and very centrally located, but just a few min away from the hustle and bustle of the main road.
The rooms are very well furnished and the fireplace keeps you warm. It has an excellent library of books and dvds.

The only reason its not got an excellent rating is the wifi is very expensive (you can use a public pc free) and the food is a mishmash of every other Indian cuisine but the local food.

One of the finest I've ever stayed at any on the Indian Hill Stations. Located at the right place for you to enjoy the serenity of the mountains while you're just a few flights of stairs away from the Mall. Superbly done rooms with their Lobby to match are surely worth revisiting while in Darjeeling. The buffet spreads are nice but they arguably can do better. Love the way they welcome their guests in the traditional manner.

An old renovated with love residence, lies on several levels, beautiful and spacious rooms with views of the surrounding hills. All the staff was professional and happy to accommodate our requests. Varied food every meal, always well presented. The only drawback was the bathroom above the kitchen with smell not always inviting, with limited water for the shower.

Darjeeling is such a crowded place with small roads winding by the side of mountains.This hotel is just a 5 mins walk from the Chowrasta market area and yet once you are inside you feel like you are home ... away from all the bustles. Very well decorated with homely features.game room and pool room for the family.

Room Tip: Get rooms with a view of the mountains. Make sure your in-room heater works as there is no centralis...

We were 25 people and we stayed very good in this hotel. On our arrival we were greeted by a welcome dance by tribal people and it gives a nice view of darjelling. The hotel has beautiful rooms , view and great food. It has playroom with pool , chess , ludo and many other activities for Kids too. The only thing which i am upset about is , we have a booking of 13 rooms and one room out of which was such a small room that servant room must be bigger than that. Which i was really upset about. Infact i went to reception and showed my disappointment on this , the hotel as usual said that they are fully booked and said they can give me a room next day. So i would suggest that you should specifically ask them not to give you this kind of room and offcourse the rooms should be hill facing which gives you the view of kanchenjunga.

I'm writing it little late but i think its worth sharing. I visited this hotel in June 2010, it was delighted experience to stay in Orchid Villa(first floor, 402) of this heritage property. The room was spacious with separate living area and very good bedding. Bathroom & dressing was spacious too with good toiletries. delicious food, clean and very well maintained, interesting paintings/pictures on all walls.
