Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 February 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at this pretty hotel. Darjeeling was misty and cold but the welcome was warm, the breakfasts hearty and the electric blankets a buffer against the cold. I can recommend this hotel with no reservations. We will be back.

Stayed: January 2013, travelled with family

hello people! we stayed in this lovely & clean hotel for 3 days in the very beginning of January 2013. I have chosen it because of good reviews at TripAdvisor :)) So, the room was very clean, neat, cozy. The bed was really extremely comfortable and the blankets were so warm & helpful during cold Darjeeling nights :)) we called the hotel on the phone & booked the room. This hotel is very good, made & furnished with good taste, up-to international standards. When u come into the hotel - it is like little Europe inside :)) walls are decorated with lovely mountain pictures. Our room had a table, a chair, LCD TV, beds, tea table & 2 armchairs. There was a vase with real roses on that tea table. And I like the curtains so so so much!!!! Such beautiful ones!!!

The only thing which was upsetting - was the water heater. You cannot switch it on when you need - you must give a ring to the reception. But that heater was sooooooo slow and produced only 1 bucket of water. It was quite sad, as it was really cold outside & inside the rooms.

I will recommend this place to my friends :)

Good location nearby the Mall

thank you for that lovely hotel ^_______^

Don't be fooled by the low prices. 1500INR will get you an amazing room with a thick mattress, soft blanket, LCD TV with cable and a hot shower. At night they will bring you a hot water bottle in the cold season and in the morning a cup of tea and biscuits! What else could you ask for? Ok free wifi internet was not great but the owner is hoping to improve this system soon and there are internet cafes every second shop in Darj. Magnolia is located in just above Charista square, you walk through a very authentic India alley/road which is an experience in itself. Along this alley/road you can get some great street food, amazing western food, book the rest of your travels, internet, paragliding. Very lovely owners!

Room Tip: Room 305 was my favourite!

We stayed for a week in November around Diwali and loved every minute.

Firstly the beds were the most comfortable beds we had slept on in months. We decided that the bed, pillow and donnas were even better than home.

Secondly the service. Anything you need they will provide because they understand what hospitality is and always make sure you are comfortable. We had hot water bottles, tea and fresh towels and entertainment the whole time.

Thirdly hot water, wi fi, roof top views, the most caring and fun filled family in India all make this the best place to stay in Darjeeling. Not to mention how clean everything was! This beautiful and super cool Nepalese family base there hospitality around the way people run home stays in Bhutan the happiest place in the world. So they know exactly how to make you happy! Like any where you stay in the world your trip is what you make it. So if your friendly and open your self up to this family you will be friends for life and be so glad you stayed here! Couldn't have asked for a better holiday!

A friend and I stayed In Magnolia 'by chance' for several days.
One month on I still feel humbled by the service we received there. The rooms are pleasant and clean with attention to stylish detail, the service is excellent and unfailingly helpful, the welcome is steadily warm but it was more than that.......everything was given with heart, sincerity and integrity. I've stayed in some famous world hotels, but I have never experienced hospitality quite like this. And wait until you taste Sonia's cooking - it is simply amazing and worth travelling round the world for, it's also modestly priced.
Highly commended, and I hope I'll be back. Thank you.

Room Tip: The room I used was very pleasant, although some (already occupied) had good views across the valley...
