One property in Darjeeling where I would love to go back again. Clean bathrooms, comfy beds ,wooden floors and a million dollar view. A little hard for older people to climb down all the stairs to reach the dining area or the garden . The only thing they can improve upon are the buffets which tend to veer towards south indian veg dishes and they sincerely need to work on their desserts. Also the staff at the hotel very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: We had the annex rooms ( 410 and 411) and it was difficult to go to the dining area during rains. Ot...

Cedar Inn is located strategically, overlooking Darjeeling town and the rooms offer a good view of the Kanchenjunga range. It has got two wings. The rooms are well furnished and spacious. The property has been maintained very well. The downside is the average food. The quality is not bad but the spread lacks in variety. But one plus point in the dining room is the live piano, playing beautiful numbers from yesteryears. The Hotel also offers on-call free pickup service to guests from a designated place near the Mall road.

Somehow we had this traditional British feel when we were here :) Good place to stay at reasonable price. They have huge variety of rooms which we can ask for when booking. There are rooms available in the main building and new rooms in the adjacent new tower. All rooms have great view of Mt.kanchenjunga. Thanks to Mr.Sanjay who took care of our stay and arrangements at Cedar Inn. We felt comfortable. Out of the 4 days we stayed we felt atleast for couple of days the Dinner / Breakfast menu was very normal and nothing extraordinary. Other than it was a good stay and pleasant stay

Room Tip: If you want to get spoiled ask for the Premier Suite room with multi storey space for living and bed...

I and my wife had gone to Darjeeling for 2 nights. We stayed at cedar inn and the experience was truly amazing. The following points have made us sure of returning to this property when in Darjeeling again:

1) Excellent location - within the city, yet away from the noise the crowd. You get your own space where and you can relax completely when tired after roaming around Darjeeling. This hotel sits on top of Darjeeling and gives you a great view.

2) Well maintained property - the rooms, gardens, restaurant, lobby,etc gives you a feeling as if you are not in India and you are living in an European hill station.

3) warm staff - one of the most important points to consider while selecting a hotel is service levels of the staff. The entire staff, right from the front desk, house keeping, security and the shuttle drivers are very warm and always have a smile on their face. A very special mention about the restaurant staff.....although the food is not that great...it's the service levels of the restaurant staff which makes you smile and gives you a positive vibe. Hats off to the service levels. I have seen similar service levels at taj hotels.

Room Tip: Choose a room on floors above the restaurant if you want a bigger window with a clear unobstructed v...

We did a Darjeeling trip as a family with one child and stayed at Cedar Inn for 2Nights/3Days.To begin with i can just say-it's so beautiful both inside and outside that i was speechless on arrival!Check-in was swift and efficient.The staff were ever courteous.The property does derive from old world charm architecture(or maybe as someone mentioned -a swiss chalet) and lives up to the image every bit!The insides are all wood,the rooms are spacious with excellent views of the mountains.There's was a fireplace at the separate sitout in the room and i believe they light it up in winters.But it was cold because of a slight drizzle and they were happy to provide us a blower-heater on request(although i'm pretty sure an oil-filled radiator type would do better to keep things warm).The gardens were wonderful,so was the flora.The dinner was accompanied by live piano.The bar was warm and cosy.The hotel is situated on a hilltop which assists in giving an unobstructed view of the town downhill and of the mountains.There is a complimentary pick up and drop to Mall Road which comes in pretty handy.I really appreciated the book collection in the library.Food quality was excellent throughout.Now the things i feel could be worked on-room service is only till 6 pm,so you need to plan early if you're planning on some starters with your drink.The breakfast spread is limited(though tasty)-i wished eveyday for some sausages or ham/bacon but found it missing.All in all i'd say it's an amazing property by almost all counts.Mr.Amit at the reception deserves a special thanks for making everything courteous and smooth.Certainly am going to come back again.Thank you Cedar Inn for the wonderful time! :)

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have a good view of Kunchenjunga.
