Stayed for 1 night, had 3 rooms.
- location (near the mall road)
- great views from the hotel garden
- good old colonial ambience
- rooms r full of insects and flies even on the first floor. Need better pest control services
- no ceiling fan in 2 rooms out of 3 we had. It was pretty hot in kalimpong. A table fan is of no help. Was travelling with a 4 month old infant. Had a hard time sleeping in the room.
- this is the second Elgin hotel I stayed after Darjeeling, the food problem continued - limited choice and taste less food
- bathrooms need renovation, stayed in room no. 51
- bathroom only had one soap and a shampoo bottle, body lotion and body wash were missing which were supplied at Darjeeling and Gangtok property
- Elgin does not supply dental or shaving kits, so pls carry ur own
- 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
