It was a wonderful trip as we went for our 10th Anniversary in the month of November. Hotel Retreat, Mr. D P Sarcar (Manager of this Hotel) and other support stuff really made our day special. The weather was very good and the hotel has an excellent view of Kanchenjunga.

The service of the hotel is very good and people were very nice and friendly.

Overall it was a very nice experience.

Room Tip: Try for Room Number 411 & 421 .. really good.

It was really a pathetic experience. It was recommended by various visitiors, but I must say it was quite horrible stay for me. Only good part for the hotel is a location and for that it is not worth staying.

When you entered into the room you can feel the foul smell. Rooms are not cleaned and bathrooms fittings are old and badly operated.

Above all, there was a leakage in the room. Just imagine, in the month of Nov, when outside temp is less than 10 and you find leakage in your room - its unbelievable experience. And it was not for one room - it was for all most all rooms. We changed the hotel on very next day.

During my trip I had never been in this kind of experience. Food was also okay.

Simply it is not recommended.

Plz dont consider "hotel retreat" for pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Simply dont go for this option. In Darjeeling you may find various option at same or lower rate and it could be far better than hotel retreat.

Hotel Retreat in Darjeeling is my seen best view hotel. I have been to Darjeeling many times, but visit to the Hotel Retreat is the very best till now. But one thing I would like to mention , its much much more best if you stay in the Royal delux room (the room 411) beside the reception.
Its the the best. The room is large , nice big bathroom, and most important the covered glass large varandah, from where you would be able to see the mighty kanchanjhunga total ranges with other peaks also on one side and on the other side the sunrise from tiger hill, you no need to go to tiger hill to see the sunrise, you would be to see it from your room only given that the weather is clear and your luck is good. As of my luck , i was very very lucky in that matter. Its costly also but if you see all those peaks and sunrise, cost is very very reasonable..
The other rooms are also good and you would be able to see the mountain peaks. The rooms are neat and clean. The position of the hotel is also very good a little away from bustling and busy Mall market area.
Manager Mr. Sarcar is also very helpfull and nice person and try to give best services.
Overall i enjoyed very much.

Room Tip: Choose royal delux room or delux rooms with varandah.
