Posted 11 Apr, 2015

I and my family visited Darjeeling in last month for 2 night. We stayed in Benfish Tourist Lodge. The lodge is one of the best hotel in Darjeeling for comfortable and economical stay with hill, valley view. The lodge is well decorated by wooden furniture and designed attractive color. Room of this lodge is spacious with cleanliness. All type of Indian food are available in the lodge restaurant. Taste of this food is very delicious. Stuff and other member of this lodge is very friendly and helpful. From my experience, this lodge is very good.

Wonderful hotel in awesome place

Posted 5 Mar, 2015

I was here last summer with my family! First of all Darjeeling is a awesome place to visit. This hotel made our tour more wonderful. The view from the hotel window was just awesome, The Kanchenjunga was at its best from here. Its view from the hotel window made our morning tea awesome. The Himalayas were awesome and it looked like white shiny platinum when the bright sunshine fell on the snow covered peaks. Room was also good and service was also excellent. Staff was quite polite and gentle, would recommend this hotel to everyone.

The manager always remain drunk

Posted 28 Aug, 2013

The hotel is quite far away from the main bus stand and very very far from the Mall. Rooms were ok. The manager always remain drunk and he is not at all interested in the maintenance of the hotel. There is an acute shortage of water in the hotel.Food is terrible (cooked by the Manager\'s mother in law). The manager\'s father law has taken control over the hotel and the manager does not do anything. Experience was horrible.
