We stayed 3 nights in April 2014 with family (travelling with a 7 year old kid!). Thanks to Mr Norbu the owner of Dekeling hotel for kindly re-arranging our booking from Dekeling hotel to Dekeling resort. The resort is approximately 5 minutes drive from the mall road. One can also reach the railway station/mall road walking - which takes about 15 minutes via short cuts. Walking back is uphill and might take a bit longer. The suites (main room+lounge) are very spacious and have lovely views of the mountains. Our room had a flat screen TV and a modern decor. The rooms and toilets were clean. There was a free wi-fi service. The resort balcony also has lovely views of the Darjeeling town and the mountains. Note while we were there the hotel was undergoing renovation and hence it was a bit of a walk/climb from the hotel gates to the reception. Usually the car/taxi would come right up to the hotel reception. We did not mind the walk. Special thanks to Prema (one of the owners) and Tashi for making this trip memorable. They cooked us lovely hot food - which is served in the resort dining hall. We just told the multi-skilled Tashi of what we would like to eat and he would prepare the same and serve us hot food. If you do have meals outside the hotel - have it before returning back to the hotel in the evenings - as it might be quiet a walk to go to mall road just for dinner. The resort also arranged all our sight seeing / travel arrangements. I would highly recommend this resort to travellers who prefer serenity over the hustle bustle of the busy mall road. The Japanese temple, Bose Institute, St Paul's school are easy walking distance from the hotel. Cash machines are near the mall road. No good restaurants nearby. The best place to buy/taste 'authentic' Darjeeling tea would be 'Nathmulls' or 'Goodrick'. I would not hesitate booking at Dekeling resort when I visit Darjeeling next time. Thanks to Mr Norbu, Tashi and Prema for making this trip so wonderful and memorable.
