Moving from Gangtok to Darjeeling felt a little bad.. Gangtok by all means is much more beautiful than Darjeeling. The city has lost the charm and reputation as " the queen of hills". The location of the resort is some 10 km away from the main city as it is located in ghum. The way to the resort is from...

The resort was very beautiful and was designed using the existing natural terrain of the place. It was at walking distance from the Ghum Monestry. The rooms were extremely clean and very well equipped with the amenities. The restaurant offered a good variety of both veg and non-veg dishes and creamed up with some nice desserts too.

Pretty Decent hotel to stay Located far from the Darjeeling Town Centre but near to the Ghum Railway Station. Shops are a bit far. Lots of shared Jeep-taxis and ordinary taxis to ply you to the main Town. Commuting to and fro is very expensive though Rooms are tidy enough and amenities are good. Maintenance is not prompt though and...

This is the first hotel, where the staff is equally bad as the hotel. Horrible location, Bad food, unprofessional staff and atrociously overpriced. The following are the reasons why I would strongly recommend not staying in the hotel: 1. The Hotel approach road is paved and very steep, still they generally do not have adequate number of cars for pick...
