My 72 year old mom from Germany just HAD TO visit Darjeeling and take that trip on the toy train. Everything was booked to stay the first night in this lodge since we were to arrive by train and then take a taxi to come up. Train was late, I got a phone call from the manager of tourist Lodge...he wanted to confirm our arrival. Two more calls and he had arranged properly for the night guard to take care of us. From there on we relied very much on the help of the manager there and were very well taken care of, upto our transport to the station in Jaipalguri. Although restoration work was going on, the crew had everything under control and didn't let business be disturbed. The lodge has guests coming in and going out around the clock also making good use of the simple restaurant with an superb view and a quite remarkable menu and nothing seems out of hand ever. This friendliness lets you relax, you need the calm before the storm that you face during traffic outside.
