Very poor attitude to serve Very poor attitude to serve

Stayed here for one night (and I am glad it was not more). Hotel is old English style with colonial charm and thats the only good thing about it or not. This hotel was not only disappointing but infuriating in its laxness - whoever the manager is, they have little understanding of how to run such a property. Had we not pre-paid, we would have moved to the Windamere or another property. The hotel literally takes you back to the time where being an Indian will successfully enable you to be treated poorly by the hotel staff and the waiters. It is like paying a premium to be treated like an unwelcome guest. There are absolutely no views from hotel and the lush green garden they show on their website is just a misleading green patch. Rooms are decently spacious but the walls are thin!! Staircases are squeaky and it gets a little noisy sometimes. No surprises if a knock on someone elses door could feel like yours. Although the room had huge windows all around, but the view was just a high wall, which was about 8-10 feet away from the windows. All you could look at was this wet grey stone wall all around with some wall creepers of course. The bed linen was very old and therefore didn't look fresh though it was probably clean but surely well used. Bathrooms were clean although hot water was a problem. Never enough hot water to fill the tub! So what's the point of the tub??? Staff was rude and really did not bother about guests. We stayed in Elgin in Gangtok and Pelling and expected much more since we saw better (if not the best) service standards and were extremely disappointed. The service was exceptionally slow. Food is terrible, breakfast spread poor. The table linen had stains and was not changed for each meal I guess. Overall an extremely disappointing stay and the lowest point of our trip wrt to hospitality. Spa is useless, the massage felt exhausting rather than relaxing and when we gave this feedback to reception, their response was "OK". Like just okay??? Really? Do you guys even care about making the hotel experience comfortable for your guests? At least bother to take the feedback and respond appropriately!! Havent seen such arrogant, apathetic and inefficient staff in any of the hotels I have ever visited. It's a complete waste of money and won't visit again!!

We stayed here for two nights. Reception was friendly and efficient with public rooms well appointed and comfortable in a relaxed Olde English Colonial style. Bedrooms are large with wooden floors, but little floor to floor or wall to wall insulation, so noise travels far!!! Bathrooms are well appointed, but no plugs to basins. When approached for a plug, reception told us that they were not allowed to use plugs for water conservation. What nonsense!!! Getting shaved meant that the tap was always running and wasting more water than if the basin was full!!! We were in Room 38 - avoid if possible. It is over the restaurant and the piano playing below is clearly heard if you retire before 22-30. The room is also near the kitchens with kitchen noise and some food smells entering the room. If we had stayed longer than two nights, we would have asked to move rooms. Dining was excellent - good choice of local dishes at both breakfast and dinner. Excellent staff and service. Despite Room 38, we would be happy to return to The Elgin.

A truly unique place. A truly unique place.

Originally a British club (made with Indian sweat and tax money), now one of the best hotels (if not the best one) in Darjeeling. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful, and hung on your every word. Service you can only get in the East. Lovely mountain views as well.

A home away from home. A home away from home.

Went for a family holiday. Stayed there for 4 nights. Unbelievable, unmatchable from stay to food, excellent rooms, very caring staff. Made us feel at home. Came back & have already finalized our next holiday at their other 2 properties. Have to stay to believe. 3 Cheers.

Beautiful colonial style hotel Beautiful colonial style hotel

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed welcome drink, spacious rooms, Indian style dinner buffet of really high quality,accompanied by live-piano. Bar was beautiful, but understaffed and underequipped. Garden allowed relaxing in the sun - and overall location was very quiet. Highly recommend
