The Elgin Silver Oaks carries on the Elgin chain theme of British Victorian design and service -- very clean, a nice Indian menu with an especially good breakfast, Wifi in the lobby, nice grounds for relaxing when the weather is right. It is small, however, and most of the rooms and other spaces feel a bit cramped. The registration desk is nothing more than a wide spot in a hallway. The location in Kalimpong has a decent view when the weather is clear, but otherwise is in a nondescript part of town.
- 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
