Superb experiences in Darjeeling stay this time . I have just very curious to stay in this Hotel as its in a very very good locations . The Rooms are very very Nice and recently upgraded by the New Owner Group. Very Luxuriously build
We go to visit Darjeeling and stay at this hotel in Aug 2016. The rooms of this hotel are very good. Actually we booked room of hotel Valentino from OYO. The best part is you are able to see Kanchenjunga peak from the hotel room.
It's a well-maintained hotel with clean rooms and furnishings. The tariffs are reasonable. The staff is very polite, helpful and friendly. The room service is good albeit a bit late: a hallmark of almost all hill station hotels. The location is at the heart of Darjeeling, near the famed mall. The only issues are:lack of parking space if you bring your car and steep approach road.
We booked 6 double and 1 quadra room for two nights through Oyo rooms. We were 13 adults along with 6 kids from age 2 years to 16 years. On the entrance of hotel there was huge garbage bin with intolerable smell. No power/generator for one day and night and totally dark whereas all other hotels have power. Rooms were okay, but hospitality was zero. Breakfast was worst we have ever had. During check out we were forcibly charged exhorbitantly by the staff. Very bad experience and later we moved to Sinclair hotel.
Upon arrival we were advised we had no booking. Booking was done through booking.com and we had a confirmation. The manager/owner confirmed they had missed our booking and they were now fully booked. They arranged for us to stay at another hotel that was of a much lower standard but as Darjeeling was fully booked out we were happy they found us a room at all. We stayed only one night at the substitute hotel and two more at the Valentino Hotel. The first room had a beautiful view of the mountains. We had to change rooms for the second night. This room was also of a high standard. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. However neither had hot water available at any time during our stay. The low rating also relates to the constant interruptions by staff to our attempts to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Even to the point of simply knocking and entering the room without being invited in for things that could be attended to at the doorway and this occurred even at late hours. Staff though were generally friendly and went out of their way to make amends for the earlier lost booking incident. The meals in the restaurant for all meals was a buffet style, including desert. All the meals were tasty but by day 3 it was a little tedious as it was all similar. Three points that should be noted about Dargeeling is that there is a lack of sufficient water to serve the town especially during peak tourist season so there are times when there is no water for showers or toilets. Complaining loudly in the hallways merely disturbs the other guests and doesn't fix the water shortage. Point number two is that there are frequent power outages. Usually not lasting for too long. Again complaining loudly in the hallway will not make the power come back on any quicker. Thirdly, many of the hotels have no road access and therefore require walking to and maybe the hiring of porters to carry luggage up the reasonably steep hills.
