Viceroy Hotel
Ranked #38 of 97 Hotels in Darjeeling
Reviewed 2 December 2013

One of the finest hotels in Darjeeling. There are many charming features of this hotel and the food is excellent. We have just stayed here for 3 nights and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was cleaned daily and all toiletries replenished daily. We had a package that included breakfast and dinner. We have to say the food was excellent.

Ah, Viceroy, perhaps one of the finest hotels in Darjeeling. There are many charming features of this hotel and the food is excellent (it is very difficult to find good Indian food in Darjeeling). But one unfortunate thing is that they follow the odious trend of playing Muzak in the lobby (for those unfamiliar with the term Muzak, it means that insipid pseudo music one usually encounters in such places as elevators, dentist waiting rooms, etc.). Many of the 'higher end' hotels in India follow this custom, undoubtedly they've been taught this in hotel management school, and they even all have exactly the same CD of this horrid stuff (you'll hear the Muzak version of the theme from Titanic again and again and again). In the case of Viceroy they play this stuff at such a volume that it can even be heard in the room and will invade your dreams even. Also, one has to go to the lobby to use wifi, unlike the horrible soundtrack the wifi signal will not reach the rooms.

We have just stayed here for 3 nights and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was cleaned daily and all toiletries replenished daily.

We had a package that included breakfast and dinner. We have to say the food was excellent.

Our biggest gripes were: 1. Hotel is cold throughout, and we ran the small electric heater full blast as well as requesting the fire to be lit nightly 2. Outside noise of barking dogs and pigeons are a nightmare but little the hotel can do to resolve 3. WIFI only available in reception area not in-room & when this area is freezing it's not ideal

Don't let these gripes put you off, just be mindful of them.

Our room was on the fifth floor (505) and included a balcony, where you can watch the sunset and the Himalayas turn pink and orange.

You also have the sun terrace on the 6th floor, lovely.

Room Tip: Look at rooms on the 5th floor which include balcony. Be mindful that you also have happy pigeons at...

We stayed in Viceroy for 3 days and 2 nights and the best thing about the hotel was the great mountain view from the rooms. Food was the second best as we could enjoy several varieties of food and the hotel ambience was classic. on the whole it was a very good stay.

We stayed in the Attic Room which has an enclosed balcony with a tea table and chairs, which overlooks the Kangchenjunga Mountain range. Along with basic amenities like double bed, kettle shower (hot water), heater, the room as a fire place which makes the attic room exclusive. The hotel staff were only too kind to light the fire place for us post dinner. It was an amazing experience having tea near the fire place.
Buffet dinner and breakfast was complimentary. We did not enjoy the dinner as the food was very bland with no spices nor taste. It was just eatable (average). Also the pricing was too high compared to other hotels like Shangrila regency which offer the same view but at a very attractive price. Its only the fireplace, balcony and lift in the building which was an add on compared to Shangrila Regency. However I felt the price charged for just this add on was very very high as from a view and service perspective, Shangrila offers it at a much cheaper rate.
Also the hotel has a Spa etc but not in a working condition. A further disappointment compared to the rate charged by the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose an attic room as it has an attached balcony, fireplace. The only 2 things which distinguish i...

This hotel is in a good location but unless you get the 5th floor your room is very average, we had a great view but the bathroom was not acceptable every time we took a bath the floor was flooded and the shower did not work so we were given a bucket and cup.
The drive takes over three hours from the airport, roads are very narrow and very rough and it is climbing up the mountain all the way very scary drive.
