We visited Gangtok in March 2013 and were allotted the Room 404 (Valley View Suite Room). The room was really nice and spacious, very well maintained. The view from the room was of the valley below and the Sikkim Stadium along with the rows of houses. It was truly a good room with a view, only drawback was the bathroom was too small.
Our's was room with a breakfast plan, the first 2 days we got menu card to order our breakfast, the last day was a buffet breakfast, with aloe vera juice, which i had for the first time and I should say, it was really good. The breakfast was a good spread of cream rolls, banana walnut cake, cookies, bread, eggs to order, puri sabji, cereals, muesli and milk. We had all our dinners in the restaurant and the local cuisine is a must try, we had the Ema Datchi and local meal set on our first night there and it was awesome, everyone should try the food. The second night dinner was disappointing, we had asked for grilled fish and got grilled chicken and the mashed potatoes had a hair in it, which was really disappointing to the good food they had prepared. Also, keep in mind, the food takes a long time to prepare, since it freshly cooked, so it would be a good idea to order a starter or a drink to pass your time till the main course.
The staff was very cordial and always ready to provide us with any help required. I mostly interacted with Rumen and Dev. Rumen helped us plan our trip to Baba Mandir and Tsongmo Lake and also the local sight seeing, which was done on a very competitive prices and would beat the STDC Tourism price for the same sight seeing trip.
Overall, I really liked the hotel and would surely recommend this hotel for the awesome stay and beautiful service of the people.
