Unfortunately only one night but it was enough to understand that it is a special place to stay. The owner (Honey) is a very nice person and the place, outside the town but not too much, is surrounded by gardens, trees and flowers. Our room was fine but there are wonderful cottages which are absolutely fantastic.
We also enjoyed the dinner very much.

Very basic amenities and soyabean oil was quite smelly. Food is a challenge..its okay if one wants basic amenities, also preference in service seem to be given to foreigners rather than locals. Everything gets managed by a few people so they seem quite stretched when full.

The property is simply breathtaking with beautiful cottages that are basic but comfortable. There are a few cottages with jasmine creepers that are simply stunning. You can spend time walking around in their green and lush surrounding and marvel at the range of flowering plants that are strewn all around. The cottages are scattered across different levels and you can get breathless walking up and down every time you want to get away from your room.
The day breaks early here but you wont get your morning cuppa before 7:30 am. Dinner is served early and closing time is around 8:30 pm. The food is cooked in soyabean oil and it took me some time before I got used to the odour. As is with most hilly locations, food has a home cooked feel and is very basic. Don't expect gourmet meals here. You have to order dinner in advance or travel by taxi to the market where there are lots of eating places. The service is efficient and dependable. All in all a pleasant and unusual experience.

The cottages are in the midst of beautiful orchids with a panoramic view of hills from the windows and balcony. Rooms are clean and spacious with running hot water.
Location is a bit away from the centre of Kalimpong making it free from the crowds and hustles.Shuttle jeeps are generally available to go to the market place.
Room services and food are excellent. Due to a landslide, we reached Kalimpong at 10-30 in night, but were welcomed personally by the owner and dinner was also available at that time.
Excellent for travellers who want spend some time in serene tranquality of the nature
