“Only stopped to check out the restaurant”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

On our way from Bagdogra Airport to Darjeeling, we stopped here for lunch and a beer. Food we had - Rice, chicken momo and chicken curry was delicious. So was the Dansberg beer. Very reasonable and smiling staff. Great views if you choose the tables near the cliff. Highly recommend the place for a quick bite. Never stayed here so dunno about the rooms...

Nicely located on the main road. Rooms are clean and cozy. Geysers proved in rooms. Room heaters provided in superior rooms(with balcony). It was extremely comfortable in the room even during the last week of December 2012. Restaurant is attached but quality of food is average. Food is a bit costly. It is better to stay at Kurseong than at Darjeeling which is heavily crowded during tourist season.

Room Tip: Go for rooms with balcony (costlier ones)

Been to Kurseong for work but once you are in a hill station it is always a pleasure after work. Stayed in Kurseong Tourist Lodge for the first time. Your stay in Kurseong totally changes if you stay here compared to other hotels in the market place. The location is fantastic, just away from the hustle bustle of the marketplace. The staff is quiet friendly and helpful. Majority of the interior work is done by wood/equivalent feel. The rooms are nice with a balcony overlooking the majestic Himalayas. The food is good though there was not much variety but its acceptable.
Bed was clean and comfortable and it wasn't stinking in the damp cold weather. There was room heater and hot water available all the time.
A nice experience and in Kurseong it is the best.

We had lunch in the restaurant both during our onward journey and return journey. Excellent food - Momos were very well prepared also the fried rohu fish was very good. Very good eating place for any traveler. At the same time, it is very moderately priced restaurant.

Room Tip: Momos are excellent

We stopped for late lunch en route to Darjeeling. There is a restaurant and cafe here. There is also a nice nursery. We ordered a plate of veggie momos. They were served steaming hot and and it was so delicious that we ordered one more plate! The tea here was great too! Would recommend this place for food.

I've spent all my growing up years in this town hence I have never had any reason to stay at this place. However, I go there often when I'm back in my hometown. This place has the most delicious momos (called dimsums in more posh places) I've had. The view from the place is breathtaking directly facing the Himalayas. The wooden feel makes it warm and pleasant.

Perhaps the waiters could be more professional. I noticed that they hardly bothered to entertain local guests but were hovering around foreigners. On my last visit, I had to wait for 10 mins before I was able to catch the barman's attention in a relatively empty bar. A more warm approach from the waiters, ability to speak basic English and perhaps a uniform can be good additions to a beautiful experience at Kurseong Tourist Lodge.
