An awesome place to stay..complete tranquility!!

I have stayed here for 3 days and the experience cannot be described in words.

We had booked the cottage and it was neat and clean and had all modern facility as any other good hotel would have.

Service is very good, they make all effort to make your stay comfortable. The serving of food was taken care by Kancha, who is a gentleman, very decent and polite and would keep running around to make things right as per your request.

The place, the peace around and nature..everything so perfect. The host (Mrs. Pradhan) so caring, like your own mother and the delicious food she cooks..just too good.

The second thing i would recommend this place for is the food Mrs. Pradhan cooks, delicious and healthy, it's like home made food.

The only concern you might have is the fixed food menu and once you have confirmed your order and preparation has started, you cannot change it later or cancel part of your order.

The Kalimpong market is just 20-30 mins walk away, and you get private taxi's as well (will charge you around 20 bucks).

It's still a dreamland for me when i'am back to my busy city.

Had never imagined that a gem like this had existed in India. Most beautiful scenery all around, a very caring hostess, excellent service, mouth watering home made food, spotless, spacious rooms with the most modern amenities- it is a dream come true for all travellers who seek to rejuvenate their spirits far from the madding crowds.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms- so better to book in advance

We stayed at Windsongs for two nights and almost immediately booked for a third because we were so impressed. It was one of the nicest places were have stayed in India. Our accommodation was in the cottage -a self contained large double room with extra pullout bed, bathroom, small sitting area and private veranda leading onto a seating area and lawn. Wifi access is available for free which we were thrilled by!

The views are stunning down into the valley, up towards Kalimpong and Sikkim. The property is a short drive from the main town of Kalimpong and is a perfect place to sit admire the views, eat the most amazing food and recharge your batteries. Kids were made to feel most welcome and the garden was a great place for them to run around and play.

The B&B owners were so helpful and kind and bent over backwards to make sure our stay went well (even when the travel agents we booked through had made a costing mistake and were singularly unhelpful in trying to rectify it - Travelmasti by the way). Mrs Pradhan's cooking is fabulous and well worth staying in for. She was happy to cater for the diets of our fussy kids and they loved her food too. Nothing during our stay was too much trouble and the service was discreet, friendly and professional.

All in all we had the most lovely time and this little B&B comes highly recommended! We will definitely come back if we are again in the area.

We had a great stay at Windsongs, the kind that has set a benchmark for us. Excellent place to spend quality time. Service was prompt and unobtrusive. Rooms were with great views, nicely done and very well maintained. Food was delicious.

We stayed at Windsongs for 3N and 4D and the experience was mind blowing. Thanks to Mr and Mrs Pradhan for being so humble and wonderful hosts and specially to Mrs Pradhan for all the wonderful dishes from breakfast to dinner. We completely relaxed at your resort and recharged our batteries to get back to life with new hope and believe.
The ambiance of the resort is really great with soft music and the wind chimes humming at there own will with the gentle wind from the hills, simply awesome.
In one phrase, Great experience!!

I went to WIndsongs after reading the reviews here on tripadvisor. Thanks to all who have written and how true all of it is... I ended up staying 04 days. I have never come across such warm hosts. I felt at home... an extended family. Thanks - Mr.& Mrs Pradhan for your hospitality. Special thanks to Mrs Pradhan for the delicacies which we would not forget till many more years to come!

The location is mesmerising with a view span from the tip of the ice capped mountains to the bending Teesta river at the foothills. The outdoor morning breakfast in the lap of the mountains or the evening tea with the sun retiring for the day will stay with you forever.

Just one caution - donot carry work or worries with you as you would not be able to do it or even ponder over it. See it for yourself.

Cheers
