“Old world charm”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We stayed at the resort during an Amateur Tennis Tournament at the adjacent club. The Resort is basic and serves only Vegetarian Food (Not even Eggs). The staff is helpful but the cleanliness and service can be better. The location is good though.

It is one of the best budget place to stay.It is old British Style and not modern look. But it is real fun to stay at such hotel with tradition value with great service and good food. Rooms are big and cozy. You can not expect star facilities but I am sure if you stay you would be happy at check out time.

Room Tip: Try food at next door club. Also order your special dish in advance which they would love to make it...

At first site the hotel seems like a dinghy..but in the inside the hotel is wood panelled with a nice restaurant...the family rooms are huge and spacious...but the couple rooms are extremely small and claustrophobic...yet we found the staff extremely courteous and willing to help...food was excellent and the general ambeince nice...however the hotel should really upgrade on its rooms and housekeeping...but full marks to the staff...one of the finest i have met yet!!!

Room Tip: Dont opt for the single bedroom its a lot more claustrophobic.... and the room next to the kitchen a...

This is a heritage hotel with only 7 rooms. Wooden receiption and staircase that you feel like going back to the past. Nice staff with excelllent room service of breakfast. Spacious family room on the top floor. It's located near St.Andrew's Church - a bit far from downtown and be cautious when walking back in the nightime. Surprised there is no wifi service in the resort and I totally feel like living in the past...

On entering the site it looks like a bomb hit the hotel! The personnel are very nice and accommodating but in January although there are fire places, they are not clean or lit and it was freezing!! The toilet was leaking, and the shower blocked. They brought us hot water bottles for our beds and a heater for the room because I think they thought we were going to die!
Food Ok but totally veg not even for breakfast!

Room Tip: Don't go there!

I stayed at Darjleeling Gymkhana Resort, at the Mall, Darjeeling. This is very old (more than 100 years) resort. It takes you to a glimpse of the british era facilities. The arrangements at reception, dining hall and the rooms takes you through the royal feelings of olden day life.
