Staying at Shangri La really made our holiday in Darjeeling. We'd recommend it to you.
We stayed for a week in this very friendly and perfectly located hotel. We felt extremely well looked after by the staff who went out of their way to help us with anything we needed. The rooms were spacious, warm and clean and at the same time retained their colonial charm with wooden floors and open fires.
The central location on a pedestrian street in the heart of Darjeeling meant that we could easily walk to many local sights, including the zoo and main square, and the children could go and explore independently whilst we enjoyed drinking tea and watching the street life go by.
We ate in the restaurant many times. All the food was great and there was a wide choice; the children really liked the tandoori chicken.
