5 out of 5

Excellent stay

Pros: Olde world feel and attentive staff with good food
Cons: The hotel is a heritage building so if you are expecting everything to be likely a Holiday Inn, stay elsewhere!
Location: Mountain Railway, Tiger Hill, fantastic views of the Himalayas.
Would not hesitate to stay here again. Excellent hotel from a diifferent era. Food very good and staff also very attentive and helpful. The best place to stay in Darjeeling.
