Good stay and the facilities provided

Posted 17 Feb, 2017

I stayed in Bamboo Grove Retreat in the month of November 2016. It was my holiday trip with family. I would rate the destination as good. I would rate the location as average. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as good as it is very clean. I would rate the front desk staff as very good as they are friendly and provided correct information. I booked this room directly at hotel. I would rate the services in the hotel were good because of availability of service. The rooms at the hotel were good because of facilities and decoration. I would rate food as very good, here we can get more local varieties.

Thank you for ruining our vacation

Posted 29 May, 2016

Booked this hotel after Reading the reviews and still wondering how it gets good rating. I had a very bad experience here and wont recommend this to anybody. When we arrived at the hotel, the manager told us that ours was the last minute booking and he has just one room left which we might not like but he can't help us on this. He showed us a room that was 10x10 with a 3x2 window. When I showed him the goibibo voucher he told us to see another room which, as per him, was their deluxe room. Attached are the pics of this DELUXE room. Since we were tired of the journey from Bagdogra and we were checking in very late, I agreed to take this room. We ordered dinner immediately at 8:30 and were told to come to the restaurant at 9:30. When we went there at 9:30, the manager told us to wait for another an hour as they were serving a big group at that time and he told that he can't help us AGAIN. On arguing a bit, he agreed to serve the dinner at our room. Food was good I must say. We stayed in this room for 2 nights. 2nd night was unimaginably horrible. The room has thin wooden walls and anything happening on that floor can be heard from any room. A gentleman was snoring loudly in his room besides us and we couldn't sleep all night. My wife had to use my noise cancelling earphones to get some sleep. We were stuck in Gangtok for one more day as a bridge near Lachen had collapsed where we had planned to go. Since we didn't want to take the pain of shifting to a new place, we wanted to extend the stay for one more day. The manager told us that this room is their DELUXE room and was booked already and we will have to shift to an inferior room. I couldn't stop myself from laughing which, it seems, offended him. He denied any availability after I laughed and asked us to immediately vacate the room. Luckily, one friend of mine was staying in a nearby hotel and we moved our luggage to his hotel. We managed to get a room at that hotel. A big no to this hotel. Explore other placed nearby. There are far better options available.

Cooperative staff & on time attending the request

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

Overall, my experience was the best there. I stayed there in October 2014 with my friends for relaxation. Hotel's surrounding was good. It was around 5 mins away from bus stand. Shopping mall is at walking distance from there. I did not have any issues there. Staff was very cooperative and comfortable. View was the best part of the hotel. No delay in check-in and check-out. They were attending our requests on time. They were friendly and helpful with us. Appearance wise, it was okay. Roads should be developed there. Room allotted was spacious, neat and clean. Pillows, bed sheets, blankets or everything were cleaned daily. Complimentary toiletries and breakfast was provided by them. Geyser was not working properly. View was good from there. They cleaned the room daily. Bathroom was neat and clean. Food was provided there. Food quality was average there. I took veg and non veg food there. It was little expensive. Restaurant was not nearby. No activity was there. Sightseeing trip was organized by my own. Overall, it was little expensive. I will recommend it to others. Geyser should be improved.

A decent hotel with excellent amenities

Posted 22 Dec, 2015

Stayed at the hotel for 5 days in November 2014. The stay was very convenient. The hotel rooms are excellent, spacious, well furnished, decent bathroom with geyser and provide a early morning decent view of Kanchenjunga peaks from the room itself, if facing the valley side. One could also enjoy the sun in the outside space they provide in front of the hotel. The location is a bit off the main market, but seeing the facilities, it is excellent in the rates they offer. The hotel has the secretariat in vicinity and if travelling by vehicle it is very convenient, away from the hustle bustle, calm and serene. The staff is very cordial, receptive, helping and services are pretty good. Though our schedule was very tight and we had to dine out mostly, the morning breakfast offered was very nice and we understood from our fellow visitors that the non-veg food they offered was excellent, as they all were non-veg. The General Manager of the hotel was very decent and his advice and support gave us a worry less sight seeing and then proceeding to Darjeeling from there. If there is an opportunity to go to Gangtok again, I shall like to stay there again.

Food facility was not there in the hotel

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

The overall experience was okay in the hotel. Food facility was not there in the hotel. The location of the hotel was not good and it was situated on the top of the hill. The surrounding of the hotel was not so good and the entrance was also not nice. The exterior appearance of the hotel was nice but the interior was average. The staff and the manager were very good and I didn’t face any problem with the staff. There was no delay while check-in and check-out process. The cleanliness of the room was good, but the interior was not good. All the basic amenities were provided in the room and all were working fine. I had a very good view from the room. The furniture was not good. The washroom was clean, but it was very congested. Swimming pool was not there and also they did not conduct any extra activities for the entertainment of the tourist. It was just a normal hotel for staying purpose. I will recommend this hotel to other tourists. My suggestions are, they should provide food facility and should improve the interior of the hotel.

A wonderful stay with beautiful view from room

Posted 17 Nov, 2014

I shortlisted a few Hotels after checking out the Trip Sites, Reviews and the Hotel websites followed by directly interacting with the Hotel staff. Friendly and clear communication with the Front office (Mr. Mingma) at Bamboo Grove helped in finalizing the Hotel. And my family of four had a very comfortable and pleasant stay at the hotel. Mr. Avowal was quite helpful and we did get a cared for' experience The location is reasonably good and close to Mall Road but the term 'short distance' in the hills gives a totally different experience due to the steep climbs .!! The evening stroll and shopping experience in Mall Road is the one we'll not forget very easily. Swachh Bharat ka inspiring example The approach to the hotel though has to be experienced to be believed and when you arrive suddenly in front of the Hotel having driven through the concrete block filled narrow roads. You'll realise why this Hotel is named so The room service tends to take time and you can feel the 'easy-lazy' holiday feel especially when you are waiting for the bed tea/coffee. It may suit many but can be slightly irksome when you are in the morning rush to venture out for sightseeing etc There are many places which the hotel assisted taxi but your trip to Gangtok can't be complete without a visit to Nathula pass. A days' trip by Hired Taxi for which one needs to submit the IDs /PP photos in advance or else be prepared for not getting the Permit from the Civil Dept Ask for any of the Kanchenjunga view rooms. I recommend the Attic room, though the views are different from each room !!! We didn't Dine extensively at the hotel but the Breakfast was well made and tasty. Stick to the Hotel options. Children and adults alike can binge on instant WAi-Wai noodles . (Forget Maggi/Top Ramen for a few days .! ). Waking up to see the Snowy peaks from your hotel window is a great feeling which adds magic to your experience. You can stare at the play of clouds within hours. Slowly building up and trying to cover up the snowy peaks in front of your eyes gradually The hotel ensured clean and crisp linen and the Washroom/Bath were clean and hygienic. And smooth flow of hot water ensured that you have a great Bath at the end of a tiring day !! Overall a very good travel destination. The Buddhist influence was very soothing and positive whenever you visit any of the Monasteries. Enough action for 3-4 days. And recommended to pack in a trip to Darjeeling for the normal traveller. Those who are fond of nature can venture deeper in all directions within Sikkim as all the destinations promised much more of the goodness of Nature Truly an unforgettable experience .!!

Parking facility was provided and humble staff

Posted 2 Jan, 2015

It was located in the heart of the city. The location of the hotel was convenient. They provide pick up and drop facility in the hotel. The staff was friendly, helpful and humble. The room which was allotted to me was neat, clean and spacious. There was the river view from the room. The housekeeping service was excellent. I stayed there for three days. The overall experience at this hotel was wonderful. They provide hot water facility twenty four hours in the hotel. The basic amenities were in working order. I did not have any issue in check-in and check-out procedure. I had food in the hotel. They provide delicious and tasty by quality wise and it was a bit expensive. They did not provide extra activity in the hotel. The hotel had parking area and a garden lawn in the hotel. The suggestion is that they should decrease the rates of the food. It was a family trip.
