“Good hotel, excellent owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2010

Siddharta is the most warm, charming, intelligent and hospitable host you could ever imagine. My daughter and I spent two nights at his lovely hotel in Darjeeling. Not only that - Sid met us at the airport, drove us to Darjeeling and two days later back, and helped us with the next step in our journey. And on the road we had wonderful chats about studying in a Jesuit school, cycling, interracial tension in Britain, the history of the hills, and other issues. Sid rules!

We had selected this hotel as it was close to the Mall area . It was an average hotel with spacious rooms . Our room was average , not very clean but view from the room was fantastic. Room service average but the staffs were helpful. Good hotel in terms of money spent.

Much appreciate this review and will certainly take on board the comments.

As the reviewer says, the visit was in April 2007, it is now January 2010.

Every review (besides this) listed on Tripadvisor pertains to a stay after April 2009, so this review is rather outdated.

Since Dec 2007 we have greatly improved the standard of our rooms and tastefully refurbished the property (in particular the heritage wing). We now also have a new wing.

The hotel is really nice: very clean, spacious rooms with great views over Darjeeling and cozy beds (the only minor imperfection: the carpets should be renewed). The staff is super friendly and helpful and even provide you with hot water bottles (the nights can be very cold). The location is perfect for restaurants, shopping and sightseeing.

The staff at the Bellevue are friendly and charming and go out of their way to help. We were picked up from the station even though our train was very late. They provide advice and guides for treking trips.
The hotel is in a great position just off the Chowrastra and the lovely, spacious rooms have fantastic views.

We booked this place from UK and e mail communication was very efficient and we received a warm welcome on arrival. We had a very big room, well appointed and as it was cold during our stay we were grateful for the extra blankets and heater which arrived within 5 mins of request!
Lovely views from room and we enjoyed meals and breakfast in the conservatory and on the balcony. We have seen the kitchen where meals prepared and it met our high standards! Great location, we enjoyed the walks in the mornings and had many cups of tea and delicious cakes at Glenarys. The chalet building is lovely, true Raj style and easy to imagine previous occupants enjoying these wonderful views. Nothing was too much trouble for the Siddartha and his wife and we wish them well. Hope they don't miss the UK too much!

I recently had the great pleasure of staying at the Olde Main Bellevue and meeting its owner, Mr. Gyaltsen The staff were very helpful and the room was very comfortable and extremely clean. It's right at the Chowrasta, and has great views. You can't go wrong staying there. Also, Glenary's restaurant is good and is close by.

Staying at the hotel was a good experience in all. The chalet wing wing suite we stayed in was big and comfortable and the room and toilet were clean. The view was great. The frontdesk people specially Pritam were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is bang on the Chowrasta and we could walk down to the mall whenever we felt like it. There's no question of noise as no traffic is allowed in the mall area. It was also a safe place to stay in with young kids. Only disadvantage was the hotel did not have its own restaurant, but they do bring in food for you from a caterer who is on contract. And there is no dirth of eating places the moment you step out. The maintenance of the place could be better, but we came away feeling happy we stayed there. If you are looking for somthing swank, this hotel is not your cup of tea.
