I visited this hotel in April. We mad an advance booking for a double room and the staff gave us a twin room saying "Sir, abhi kuch khaali nahi hai". On asking for a room change, they told us to wait for a day. We also noticed that they were serving stale food to guests. We came on a night and saw what we had for dinner, being served as lunch to some guests who arrived next morning. The over all food quality was really bad. It's a four star property, but we've seen 2 stars better than this one. We would not recommend this hotel to any one visiting Kalimpong.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more less
