Good ambience and location

Posted 14 May, 2016

The club situated in good location and easily accessible the room was very comfortable and had an old world charm about it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is no food available but easily accessible to good restaurants just a few minutes walk. The club is undergoing extensive renovation and we are sure it will be an even better place to stay

Very wellmaintained hotel, perfect ambience

Posted 14 Sep, 2015

I visited this hotel with my family in a group of 16 people in vacations. We booked 7 rooms in this hotel. Pre booking process was excellent and very smooth. Ambience was perfect. The hotel is wood based and very well-maintained by the club. A very different experience it was to stay in a hotel like this. I being a music lover got excited to see a big piano in the lobby which, I was allowed to play. Billiards table was there and was open to all. I found rooms somewhat suffocating, the reason being no cross ventilation in rooms as well as toilet. Highly recommended hotel.

Good hotel in low budget

Posted 4 Sep, 2015

If you are looking for a good hotel in Darjeeling then do not worry, go to the Darjeeling Planters Club. The hotel is very nice and clean and it is not that far from proper Darjeeling. The room has free Wi-Fi and all. They helped me to manage a transport vehicle for roaming around. The food quality is also up to the mark. I am recommending it to everyone.

Luxurious hotel with good facilities

Posted 2 Sep, 2015

The Darjeeling Planters Club is one of the most modern and well facilitated and luxurious hotels in Darjeeling. I had a visit in Darjeeling with my wife and stayed for 2 nights in this hotel, the atmosphere of the hotel is eye catching. I am really impressed by the staff's devotion towards customers, they are really hard-working lads. Food service was totally delicious, added to this free WiFi facility that we had there so we called home plenty of time. Good hotel to stay with family or friends.

Easy to locate and spacious room

Posted 4 Nov, 2014

The location of the hotel was good, it was easily accessible, The appearance of the hotel was good. All the interior and exterior was neatly maintained. The rooms were spacious and cleanly maintained. The TV and geyser was in working conditions, the specialty of this hotel is it was well known to everyone because of the location. No difficulty in check-in or check-out, There was no activity at the hotel as it was on renovation of certain. Overall experience was okay. The suggestion would be provision of snacks should be provided.

A good place with good food

Posted 29 Sep, 2014

The maintenance of the hotel is very bad, though the location is excellent. There are rooms, which are big but were badly maintained. The hotel stuff was nice and friendly. The famous keventers hotel was bang opposite of our hotel. The mall road was very near. The food was good there.

Overlooking the snow-clad mountain ranges

Posted 14 Mar, 2013

The stay at Planter\'s Club was indeed a good experience with best possible location overlooking the snow-clad mountain ranges, opposite to Keventer\'s, a few minutes walk from taxi stand, mall and the main market area. Food at Opium was equally good and so was the service by the hilly people. Room No. 4 was big and spacious. Would love to always stay here, whenever in Darjeeling.
