Although a little eclectic (you get to the rooms by walking through the restaurant), I really enjoyed this charming hotel especially have a hard days drive from Bhutan to Sikkim. They even greeted the guests with a cherry brandy as you entered. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and the food was excellent. Service was excellent.

The Elgin Nor-Khill was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 and is the oldest heritage property in Gangtok, the property has played host to numerous celebrity guests such as his holiness The Dalai Lama, Hollywood stars Sir Richard Gere, Michael Douglas and Shirley Maclaine, the US Ambassador to India His Excellency John Galbraith and many more.
