We had an excellent stay. The complimentary breakfast was wholesome, the owners were very helpful ,so was the staff.The rooms were clean ,The toilets were well stocked and they have heated blankets so one doesn't need to waste money on heaters. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
I booked this hotel for a 3 day trip to Darjeeling and it was a wonderfull experience. The rooms are nice and cozy with all the amenities you need during your stay. They also provide bed heaters which is really handy as it becomes sometime very chilly in Darjeeling. The location of the hotel is near to the clock tower and Keventers, Hasty Tasty and many other eating outlets. The room service is superb and staff is also very coperative. The hotel dont own a restaurant so the food is arranged from outside. The hotel is run by a family which will make your stay pleasant.
Ever expected a view of Mt. Kanchenjunga and Himalaya view, and it turning into golden fireball while sunrise, without visiting Tiger Hill, and more over sleeping on your bed, that too with that all legendary CLOCK TOWER of Barfi, with its old song ding-dong, acts as an alarm clock when it strikes the 6!!! People would call you mad, and utter sarcasm, and in soft words, in your dreams!!!
Well, they, who say, have not visited springburn. The photos say the rest. Do visit this hotel.
This hotel is close to a lot of food places and the Mall area. It was clean and pleasant smelling, including the bathroom. Linens had some stains but minimal, and smelled clean. The rent was 3500/3 person room, during the off season. Staff are extremely helpful and polite. First floor rooms had good Wifi, also was very easy for elderly people. Complimentary breakfast was good, but slow, plan extra time for breakfast. Also, lots of flies in the dining area. Good clean hotel, however, it was not luxurious or special.
To begin with - There's no parking slot neither inside the hotel nor outside. If you are unlucky, your vehicle might get a slot 200 m ahead and then you walk with all your luggage . That's precisely what happened to me.
We had booked for 2 adults plus one 11 year old son, for whom we had paid extra. The room offered to us (through makemytrip.com), just couldn't accommodate 3 people. At night, when we objected, they gave us a basement room. Naturally there could be no views absolutely.
The eating area was really shabby with lots of flies , one dirty ash-tray etc.
They don't even have a running restaurant. They serve only breakfast and dinner buffets.
I see no reason why should one stay over here unless forced to.
