Hi Friends,
last summer 2015, i had a chance to make a very short stay at this resort at Darjeeeling, just for 2 nights.
The location of this resort is superb, away from the jostling of the town, amidst a tranquil corner of it, just opposite the governor house, and I thinh it is the primary criteria to choose this hotel.room rent is reasonably low according to that.
this resort is organised with reception at the top floor and rest of the stories downward.
as it is on the cliff side of the hill road.

rooms are fine like other 4 star hotels and constant hot water supply.
it has a buffet system and food is okay.
I think this review will be helpful for the forum members. Thanx.

If you want to loose your peace this is the perfect place.

Some of the highlights :
- it's compulsory to place your dinner order
by 6:30 otherwise they will keep knocking
Your door till 7:00 and after that they will
refuse to take your order.
- If you want a towel or soap you will not get
It before 8:00 a:m as the housekeeping
staffs turn up after 8:00 only.
- The choice of food is very limited. They
will share a A4 sheet instead of menu
Card which will have 6-7 items only.
- You get stained towels.

Earlier it was a part of Western group and was managed well but now the services are

We stayed here for 3 nights in October last year and the overall experience was fantastic. Starting from the location which is at a walking distance from chourasta, the surroundings (very peaceful and greenery all over), the service, rooms, cleanliness, food (buffet), and off-course the staff everything was just excellent. The best part was the price, very reasonable according to the infrastructure and the service. All in all a full paisa vasool experience..!! :)

The hotel since placed on a hill when you checkin on the same floor as the road you are actuallly in a middle floor like 3-4 th floor.
Good Hotel rich look and decent ambience. People staying there obviously help you make perception of your stay , When I was there people were good enough not to disturb other except few exceptions there. Food was average since the first day we liked the food but hated it the other day, Very near to the main bazaat and the Bovernor house adds the value since you are in main city though you are away. Good for shopping as the main market is just 2 mins walk away

Room Tip: If I visit Darjeeling again I would like to stay at the same place

It is located in close vicinity to the Mall. The room is clean and well maintained with running TV channels and gives a good mountain view (offered the room on the 4th Floor). Bathrooms are clean however small in size, with running hot water. Service is good and the restaurant serves a good Break fast and dinner with a range of dishes for vegetarians as well. Hotel has a gym as well, but was not functional while we stayed. . The staff there are very cooperative and always up for your help. It is over all a good property to be with while in Darjeeling. I would mention of the GM, an elderly gentleman, who inquired about our stay and offered a few tips about the place as well as asked about our taste of tongue and suggested dinning options in a restaurant.

Room Tip: rooms on the 4th floor gives good mountain view.
