Stayed here for one night (7th Nov 2013). Very nice hotel with a good valley view from the room. Hotel has a nice little bar and one can enjoy a quiet drink in the evening.Hotel corridors have quite old photographs from 1930's and u can spent some time reviewing those snaps!
Dinner was excellent and they served us hot roti/chapatis. However the breakfast was not buffeet style, instead u have to order from the available choices ( only 2 /3 options were available!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more less
