“Nice hotel with a view of kanchanjaunga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

We stayed in this hotel on Oct 1st for 2 N. It's biggest advantage is it's in the heart of the city, evening when you have a free time you can walk to mall road which is very lively.This hotel is built on a height so the walk from the mall road to the hotel is very steep but it's manageable. Rooms are nice,clean and have enough space (in case extra bed is needed for kids). Bathrooms can be more clean ,on cleanliness parameter I Would give them out of 10 but to become perfect they have to take some minor things into consideration (like corners /doors etc.) , Towels were also not very clean. Another thing I'd like to mention is that they don't provide any brocher etc which might be of tourist interest.No body or nowhere in the hotel it was mentioned that we can see Kanchanjunga from this hotel.
we were lucky to get a room (Rm. 301) which had excellent view of kanchanjunga and the valley. Our trip to tiger hill was a waste because of the clouds we could not see the Himalayas, But next morning around 5:15 AM , we were just looking out of the window to figureout the directions and we saw whole Kanchanjunga range shining in the right side window of our rooms. It came as a total surprise to us as we were not aware that we could see kanchanjunga from this place.On every floor they've made balconies so that people can view the Himalayas from that place.
We had buffet breakfast and a la carte dinner at the hotel , both were good and the service was excellent. Staff is also very courteous. Overall a good place to stay.

The Choice of Hotel Sinclairs was made after much research on Trip Advisor and other sites. Its a good "middle of the road" property, conveniently located in Darjeeling. Views of Kanchenjunga were fabulous from the room, as also of Darjeeling Town towards chowrasta. Stayed 3 nights and extensively used their travel desk services ( which though expensive was a conscious choice). Since we were on MAP breakfast and Dinner was Buffet style. Generally good quality, but the Chef needs to brush up on her repertoire of North Indian Dishes. Hospitality was courteous & friendly and rooms were spotlessly clean. One observation i must make tho. Staff were a bit too much in your face insistent to help out with outside chores. Hotel Management does not encourage this im told, but its the peculiarity of the region & its political problems thats causing this. We took it in our stride as part and parcel of the Darjeeling experience and it did not distract very much. would definitely go back to stay at Sinclairs if we visit Darjeeling again

Room Tip: Higher Floors will give you an unhindered view of the Himalayas.

We had our team offsite amidst the monsoon season. We were lucky to have a great weather on our side and the lovely view of Kanchanjunga range was the unforgettable moment. The hotel has neat and spacious rooms. and very courtous staff. However food was not upto the mark and therefore can be one area of improvement. But over all we were quite satisfied with the service.

Have been visiting Sinclairs Darjeeling since 1986 when i was a child. It's 2011 now. A lot has changed and a lot has not. What has changed, has changed for the good. The Hotel now has a fresh looking interior since it has been renovated. What hasn't changed is it's warmth and it's charm.

Its located near the Mall Road; a climb up from Gandhi Road providing tranquility and peace to travelers. Sinclairs provides the best panoramic view of the Kanchanjunga, the valley and the City of Darjeeling. The road down will take you to the Taxi Stand, The Rink Mall (BIG Bazaar & INOX) and the Mall Road.

Parking is not a problem if you are planning to drive down to Darjeeling from Kolkata.

The rooms are extremely comfortable and cozy for a good night's sleep. Hot water is not a problem at the sinclairs.

The games room for the children provides a variety of board games and table tennis, whereas the Pool Table in the Bar allows you to enjoy a game of Pool while you sip a drink.

The restaurant serves excellent Indian and Chinese cuisines and provides room service also. The buffet breakfast allows you to enjoy a range of south indian dishes and Eggs.....the way you want it.

The staff is very welcoming at the reception an that the service staff is very friendly and very co-operative. We were travelling with our 3 month old baby and the staff just did not let us have any problems.

Sinclairs.....makes you feel at home...at peace with yourself.

Room Tip: Try opting for rooms with odd numbers at the end !
