“Ok for one night stay”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

The hotel is located on top of a hill and is away from the main road of Kalimpong. There are not many things nearby.
The hotel is an old summer house of the local king – as told by one of the staffs. There are 2 buildings, one old one with wooden floor and about 4-5 guest rooms and another one is comparatively new construction and has many rooms. The new building is behind the old building. We stayed for a night at one of the rooms in the old building on the 1st floor at facing the valley. The rooms are big with many windows and also have spacious bath rooms; lack cleanliness.

Not much tourist activity in the month of August, hence not many guests in the hotel. There was no buffet breakfast. They have a fixed menu for breakfast – Continental & Indian which is quite basic, however we found it was sufficient. Dinner order needs to be placed as early as 6:30PM and average cost per person would be around Rs200-250, excluding drinks. There is a small bar which we did not use.

The staff is neither friendly nor rude. Overall it was a quite stay.

PS: There is not many things to do in Kalimpong, only few sight seeing places and which are nothing compared to what you get in Gangtok or Pelling. So you can completely avoid Kalimpong.

Room Tip: If you belive in Old is Gold, select the rooms in the old building, I think room number 6 and 7, rig...

We stayed in the hotel during our transit from Gangtok to Darjeeling. Stayed there for a night and the place was very refreshing. Rooms were clean, spacious and neat. Lovely ambience for a cup of coffee in the evening. View from the hotel is good and nice for an evening walk. Food was horrible and the menu card is for only namesake.

It's a place that we never expect to received the warm & great hospitality service from the staff. Just after a few minutes that we have checked in, it was total black out but we are prepared with torch light and the power came back after 5 minutes. That was fine because the staff were helpful and we were well taken care of. The food is good, no fuss at all when we requested for additional.

The most cozy yet elegant hotel i visited during my Sikkim trip. The decorations consist of exquiste artifacts and antiques. Rooms are alrght. The view from this hill top hotel is beautful. Gets even better in the morning with clouds all around. A cozy porch where you can laze in the evening. Food is good too. They even have a little gift shop.

The hotel is located a little away from Kalimpong town. But it commands a magnificent view of the town and the surrounding scenery.

The hotel rooms are large and cosy. But come with a lot of restrictions that make you wonder if it is a youth hostel. The hotel has a big list of Do's and Don'ts on its notice board. You can't order food in the room. If you do so, you are charged 50% more than the printed rate. You can't wash clothes in the room. Dinner has to be ordered by 6:30 PM. Tea or food won't be served in the lawns or lounge. You have to compulsorily have it in the restaurant. The bar though, appears well-stocked.

The food is good and portions are nice in size. The staff too is helpful.

Fantastic place to stay. Its an erstwhile palace of some king which is converted into a hotel. The hotel is located on the top of the hill so you have a very good view of the entire place. Good open space , Fantastic palatial rooms especially the old ones with antique fittings. the Common dining area has very old artefacts. Really good value for money.

We reached the hotel when it was dark. It was very cold in the month of Dec(obviously). But the rooms were clean and cozy and they placed a heater so it got cozier quickly. They served the dinner in room and we had a sound sleep. Food was good.
In morning when we got up I was excited to see the surroundings, alot of greenery, it was beautifull and romantic. We had our breakfast in the gardens in the sweet winter sunlight and enjoyed there for couple of hours. Breakfast was really tasty. And we then moved out to go to Sikkim.

Overall a very good stay of one night.
