“a memorable stay”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

it is a wonderful property. well manicured and landscaped gardens. the room which we were staying in had a glorious view of the himalayas. it was a huge and spacious room, well maintained and comfortable. the staff was courteous and eager to help. the hotel provides free pick/ drop from Mall road, which was a great help. the buffet breakfast was good but there is scope for a little more variety. overall a highly recommended property.

I don't think there is any good hotel in Darjeeling with such an awesome view. All the rooms facing the mountainside have a chance to view the fabulous Kanchenjunga.
We were on an all old boys annual get together...and since we had taken one extra suite for us all to meet in the evening , it was perfect. All rooms were good and the food reasonable. Please beware that in all the hotels there is no service after 9 pm. So we had to request that food be put in our suite at 10pm and we would eat at our own time. This hotel is away from the city so if you are not the type who likes to walk , then keep a vehicle with you.We went on 3rd March 2014 and the nights were still cold. But the hotel lit cozy fires in our rooms along with hot water bottles (and electric heaters). The facade of the Hotel is really breath taking and all the wood finish inside is very pleasing. All in all a great place to stay.

Beautiful place.. Completely constructed in wood it has a sudden bucolic charm with all modern amenities you can think of. Few room over look the Kanchenjunga. Lovely garden and terrace balcony. The service is efficient. If you are visiting Darjeeling you must stay here as it is lil away from the crowded market place and is on the highest point.

We were a group of 4 couples touring North India and booked into the Cedar Inn for three nights. Cedar Inn is on top of a hill above the main Darjeeling town area. We drove up a steep, winding road and as the Inn came into view at the summit, it took our breath away. It sprawls over the summit of the hill. Imagine a Swiss Chalet in the heart of Darjeeling, India! The ambiance was perfect. The rooms have a raised sleeping area, and a few steps down is the cosy sitting area with, would you believe, an old style wood fireplace which is fired up each evening to keep the room romantic and warm. And hot water bottles are placed under the blankets in the evening to ensure a cosy night sleep. Compared to the other good hotels we stayed in throughout India, this hotel surpassed our expectations. Each and every member of the staff did their utmost to make our stay memorable; even the chef made special meals for my wife, who cannot eat Indian food. You can read about the panoramic views in other reviews, you won't find better in any other Darjeeling hotel. I recommend this hotel very highly and will always stay there should I visit Darjeeling again.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms have a panoramic view of the snow clad Himalayan mountain peaks (on a clear...

First of all I want to mention is the scenic beauty that we experienced from this hotel. It was amazing and breath taking. You can see the complete valley and the complete city from the room and if the sky is clear you can see the awesome view of kanchenzonga. This hotel is situated on top of the Darjeeling city. Rooms were top class. I didn like the food very much may be because I am a typical south Indian food lover. The hospitality and the ambiance of the hotel was top class.

We stayed for three nights at the Cedar Inn, and found the staff extremely helpful and courteous!

The restaurant served very good food that was fresh, and if the clouds and haze moved just a bit, there was a great view of the mountains from it. They are currently expanding, so my hope is a lot more tourists will take the treat of this heritage-ish style hotel while in Darjeeling. We were originally booked at another hotel, but it was kind of scary, but the staff and management at Cedar Inn were very accomodating and gracious considering we had no reservation. After nearly two months of travelling through India, we felt that Cedar Inn had the whole package for our comfort...nice rooms, comfortable beds, and great service! Kudos to all!

Room Tip: Rooms to the north had the best view.

Beautifully located..
Well maintained hotel and courteous staff..
Good food.. (In general Darjeeling is very bad for street & restaurant food.. we literally had to fast over the day during sightseeing)
Differently designed rooms giving you more than 270degree panorama of Darjeeling..
Also they drop you and pick you from mall road..

Room Tip: Go higher for best views..
