I really enjoy to stay in IVANHOE HOUSE. It's Charles Dickens beloved's summer stay at Darjeeling.
Ivan & Dickens memories are all over the house. Their weapons are stored in Dinning space. It's amazing.
Fireplace and hospitality no one can imagine. Actually people over there are very hardy, fashionable and always with smiling face. Manager and staff are so cordial that i must appreciate. I never seen Shrubbery Nigh tangle Park before. I have visited thrice before. So my husband dare to leave me alone with my son . I like the journey to Tiger Hill. We really enjoy sunrise with beautiful snaps. Zoo and Mountaineering Institute attracts my son a lot. Solar power at zoo beside Tiger cage is interesting.
Rope way was closed. North point school is like a white palace to stay for BOY"S ( I.C.S.E & I.S.C).Tea gardens , Monastry , Darjeeling Toy Train station and Mirik is attractive.
Horse ride is interesting in Hill.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a 2-storey Heritage House of India – originally built in 1871 - as a “quietly comfortable and elegant” Boarding House for British Raj families”. Famous names like ‘Vivien Leigh’ (of ‘Gone with the Wind’) and ‘Julie Christie’ (of ‘Dr. Zhivago’) used to live here. Sir George Everest, the Survey General of India (who discovered Mt. Everest as the highest point on earth) was here, along with Col.Younghusband, who led the British Expeditionary force to Lhasa, Tibet (then a forbidden country to enter). The House was also occupied by the Vicereine of India, Lady Curzon (wife of the then Viceroy); Sir Charles Bell (Indian Civil Service – British Political Officer for Sikkim, Bhutan and Tibet); George Mallory and Andrew Irvine – British mountaineers who disappeared below the summit of Everest in 1924 and alas, never returned. ‘Ivanhoe’ was, of course, one of King Arthur's beloved knights of ‘The Knights of the Round Table’ fable (or was it true?!)Today, we are delighted to see a rising tide of discerning domestic guests, who relish a stay in “an old place from the Indian Colonial days”. We also host the stays of overseas guests (with, or without, family), who feel that an old Colonial home is just right for them! ... more less
