We stayed at the Magnolia Residency for two nights, on either side of our trek along the Singalila Ridge. This guesthouse is perfectly located in Darjeeling (although we found it difficult to find as it can't be accessed directly by taxi!) Once found, we enjoyed a warm welcome from Naveen, the manager. Our room was a reasonable size with cupboard,...

We enjoyed our stay at the Magnolia. Hotel rooms are cozy but all rooms are cleaned and decorative. The manager (Mr. Pradhan) was very pleasant and went out of the way to be helpful. Breakfast was sumptuous and tasty. We enjoy the trip.

Changed the room for better view. Extremely friendly staff, room was clean and nicely equipped. But approach to the hotel was poor and room/s do not offer proper mountain views. Also breakfast menu needs improvement.

After a week in chaotic Kolkata, our first night here was in pretty much silence! The room was very clean, hot water worked and the staff were always happy to help. Special thanks to whoever cooked and came up with the breakfasts, we were so impressed with everything, especially that you're making something different everyday! Would definitely stay again.

Spend three nights at Magnolia residency and had a wonderful stay. Room no 305 has the best view and ofcourse the best room. But the entire property is very well maintained and carefully decorated with local Tibetan murals. Our room though small was fully equipped. Even had a writing table. WiFi worked fine though most places in Darjeeling has network...
