Hotels is oozing old times charm with polished wooden floors and crispy white linen. Personel knows exactly how to run place like this and every wish is fullfilled the minute you are thinking of it. Rooms are big and bright - but be sure to ask room facing the garden to get the best view.

This hotel is close to the main shopping road of Kalimpong but it remains quiet and serene in spite of the clamour a few hundred yards away. The welcome was friendly and our room was very comfortable and clean with great views over the town and to the hills beyond. While we were there the hotel was extremely quiet with...

The hotel has sympathetically been furbished from a merchants house to a luxury boutique hotel. in keeping with the Elgin chain it offers a high standard of accommodation and cuisine. Probably the finest hotel in Kalimpong. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Rooms retain much of their charm with many Indian artifacts on display. Can recommend..

We visited Kalimpong in June 2015 and stayed at the Silver Oaks for two nights. It is a beautiful hotel that exudes peace and an old world charm. We had taken two rooms. They allocated us one room with a mountainside view and one roadside facing one, both on the first floor. I think they try to divide up the...

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
