Paeans have been sung in earlier reviews for this wonderful property in a scenic location looked after by the energetic manager, Mr Uttam Paul. But let me repeat - this is the place to stay in Darjeeling in a colonial ambience with a great view with only 10 minutes walk from the Mall. The beautiful lawn and garden full of rose, azalea, fern and orchid was a delight for my son. The Magnolia Suite and Azalea Room were spacious and comfy. Food was excellent and Mr Paul arranged for our culinary needs effortlessly. I should also mention the ever smiling staff, especially Arpan and Dipankar, who quickly became friends with my son.
A few things that need to be improved however are: (1) maintenance of the wash basin in Magnolia Suite; (2) cleanliness of the bread/puri basket - we found bread crumbs sticking to the oily basket just under the serving paper napkins.
Having said this, we will definitely return to Swiss Hotel in our next visit to the Queen of Hills.
