I stayed at the Retreat in February and I had a great experience. Mr. Sarcar (the manager of the hotel) and the members of the staff made my vacation an unforgettable experience. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The hotel was nice and clean including my room (411), which has a tea/reading room with an amazing view of Kanchenjunga and the range of the Himalayas. If you feel cold, additional warmly blankets are available and if necessary a heater can be provided. The food was excellent (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and if requested, all meals can be made to meet your dietary needs. Nice Darjeeling hot tea was served to my room whenever asked. Additionally, Mr. Sarcar is an excellent travel adviser and if needed, he can help you making your travel arrangements for visiting nearby places and/or going trekking. Also, the hotel is located in a quite area so you can really relax and sleep quietly. In case you want to do shopping, it is a 10min walk to the local markets.
I strongly recommend this hotel when visiting Darjeeling or nearby cities. It will make your vacation memorable!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Laced by horizon-kissing green tea-estates and foggy hills, Darjeeling is the 'Queen of the Hills' in all its own splendour. For the world tourists, trekkers and globetrotters, Darjeeling is the gate to a tranquil world that is filled with enchanting and breath-taking picturesque beauty. The sunrise from atop the Tiger Hill is mysticism beyond compare. And who ever misses a walk to the Mall Road for some woollens shopping, or a ride on the famous toy-train that whistles its way through the greenery? Darjeeling will wrap you in its beauty, and your stay at The Retreat will make your trip more memorable. Here at The Retreat, you can see the Kanchenjunga peak from every room! ... more less
