After our bad experience at the Sarovar Gangtok Regency a few nights earlier we were very apprehensive about this booking so much so that we even contemplated preponing our departure. However thanks to the reviews and what we finally got we were really happy to stay here. The rooms are very comfortable, they have given a lot of thought to the tiniest details in the room and washroom. The restaurant was also very welcoming and the food was fantastic. The menu had great choice and even though we ate all our meals across three days we were never bored...
The only sad part which was beyond everyones capabilities was the hazy, cloudiness which kept the snow peaks out of view...
The other thing is our laundry took forever to come back, luckily we only gave socks but they just about returned before we left.
Totally recommended.,,,A big THANKS to the owner, Naresh and Varsha and all the staff, especially Karan and Avinash at the Front Desk who were always helpful and willing to take care of all our requests.

Room Tip: Mountain facing rooms we were No. 404. For elderly people choose a lower floor as no lift and steep...

The owner has been able to hire a very good architect, so at the price, rooms looks very premium. Front Desk staff is also very good and had been very helpful, What it fails at is the service at the restaurant, We got cold breakfast, poor service in the restaurant, staff in the restaurant is busy among themselves without even bothering to look at what the guests may require.

Room Tip: There are no lifts/escalators so avoid higher floors,

Nettle and fern is 1 of the best hotels to stay in gangtok.without a doubt,choose this.my wife liked this hotel vvvv much.the staff are also very helpful.although its only 10min walk from mg market..i will recommend this to everyone.the food quality(punjabi)is not that great(i mean taste wise).
Varsha and all other members gave us a terrace flat on 5th floor and blive it or not Mt Kenchenzunga was visible from there when the weather was clear.to our bad luck...from every other place..bcos of weather the kenchenzunga was not visible.so nettle and fern will be always lucky for me.GO FOR IT GUYSSSSS ;)

This is almost like a boutique hotel. Nettle & Fern is offers a clean, fresh comfortable and cozy stay with amazing views. THe hotel is pretty new and is extremely tastefully done. It si total value for money; would be impossible to find a hotel like this with the rates they offer. The Deluxe Valley View Room is amazing and I wouldn't have imagined getting such a room at this rate. Beyond that, the staff - from the owners (Varsha & Naresh) to their Manager (Karan) all went out of their way to help us plan our North Sikkim tour and ensured we had the best driver and vehicle and also made some trip recommendations which made our trip worth it. It is a 10 min walk from MG Road or a Rs50 cab ride. Still being away from the hustle & bustle and offering great views. The lounge and restaurant/bar is done up extremely well and play great music. Though the menu is extensive, the service on the food side is a little slow and quality on this front can be improved. Al in all would recommend this to all. best hotel in Gangtok especially at these rates!

Room Tip: Deluxe Valley View Room has the best view, spacious and has good rates too.

Travelling with kids and parents, planning for a group of 12 was made to be a pleasurable experience by Varsha(owner of the hotel) and her team! From the time of interacting over emails to iron out requirements till check-out, it was one seamless memory for me. Whilst looking for booking options in Gangtok, I wrote to many hotels but Varsha was the first one to respond and she was accomodating from the word go... her professional approach is adopted by her team at Reception desk..Karan and all...along with the Restaurant team. All, and am not exagerrating, all the hotel staff were polite and humble to say the least. Even Jai ram the bellboy was so energetic and prompt as we were a big group with a lot of luggage. Room service was prompt;restaurant menu was exotic with local options(which my husband and I enjoyed ), bar choices were ample, cleaniless was key. I can recommend this property if anyone is looking for 5 star treatment at 2 star price...it was from my room window that I could capture the elusive Kanchejunga...so its good value for money. Varsha's team can arrange for various excursions, pick up drop from NJP or Bagdogra depending upon whether you are taking train or plane.
Congrats to the Nettle and Fern team for such good service.Thanks to all of you for making our stay so comfortable...
thnx

Room Tip: ask for valley facing corner double room
