Six of us stayed at The Mayfair Gangtok at the end of a 3,400 kilometer drive the whole length of India in Auto Rickshaws, (also known as Tuc Tuc's) The Mayfair is a beautiful oasis of calm and quality in a part of the World not renowned for either.
It delivers very high quality in all aspects, rooms - superb, ambiance - superb, food - excellent.
I travel extensively and would rate the Mayfair in the upper quartile of the Worlds hotels.
However for any review to have value it is necessary to discuss the negatives even if, as in the case of the Mayfair, they are very small.
The Mayfair is used for business conferences and weddings by the population of Gangtok , so you can suddenly find that the peace and tranquility gets a bit dented for an hour or two. So if the sight of people enjoying themselves upsets you, go stay in a cave somewhere.
The measure of a World class hotel is how they handle the odd things that inevitably go wrong, at the Mayfair resolution is instant and discrete - just as it should be.
I noticed another review talked of excessive traffic noise while staying at the Mayfair, I think they must have been staying in a different hotel as the road is well away from the hotel and cannot be heard.
