Undoubtedly this is the best place to stay in Darjeeling if you are going for pocket friendly. We choose a 5 bedroom, which was best fit in for our family size. The place is at a walk-able distance from the main tourists spots. In fact the location is practically a Kanchenjunga viewpoint. The maintenance of the of the lodge has has to be taken care care of moving forward as the furniture and wooden panel floors seeks an upgrade.
I have visited Darjeeling last month with my family. The hotel is very good respect to some common use. But there is thing that I would like to tell that is the activities are not as good as the hotels offer in the cities. The service provided by the hotel management was as nice like as it is for the people they knew. It was a very beautiful place where the hotel was biult. It was like a gate to the heaven. The sunrise in Darjeeling can be seen by the hotel in the morning. My advice is that if you go to Darjeeling you should check this place.
We were there for 3 days at starting of march 2015. Good to stay there. First day we got 4 bed room. It was a very large room. A whole family can stay there. Floor are made of wood. So quite good in winter. Staff behavior is good. One disadvantage is that they take taxes in room and food. Otherwise good. There is a garden area in the backside of lodge from where you can watch good view. If you are lucky, then you can also see kanchanjungha from there. Garden flowers and sitting area were also nice.
On June my office had arranged a business trip in Darjeeling. I was happy to go. My office all ready booked the lodge, when I entered I was amazed to see the front office and its beauty. The room, Oh my God!! The room was just like heaven. The view of the hills from the lodge was awesome. I really enjoyed the lodge.
There was no delay during check-in and check-out as it was whole day and night welcome. The rooms provided ere clean and spacious with bathroom cleaned regularly. The food provided was tasty and good quality. The service boys were not quick. There were no activities conducted. I visited in April 2015 visited for relaxation with family. The hotel provides good stay which I recommend for other travelers.

I should say this before I say anything about the hotel and staff. Darjeeling is my favourite spot on Earth. I could spend all my life there, unfortunately due to my family and career I have to stay at Kolkata. But one should surely visit Darjeeling at least once in their lifetime. Now I come to the hotels, according to me the best spot to stay in Darjeeling is the Darjeeling Tourist Lodge. It's situated in the best place. The view is just amazing, the food ooh! mouth watering, service is just too good, and the mall is so close, everything is just perfect staying in this hotel/lodge. You can get car on rent from the lodge itself, for sightseeing. And one of the best part of Darjeeling is the toy train ride, there is a special ride for tourists called the "Joy Ride". The other spotted to be seen are the tea garden, the rock garden etc. Glenary bakery is a must try, the breakfast is Glenary is a must do.. Just had to mention a date so I did the recent visits date, but I visit Darjeeling every year.... :)
Overall my experience was very good.I have been to Darjeeling at least 10 times and this is the first time I have opted Tourist lodge. located in a very posh area of Darjeeling and just 10 mints walk from Mall. All the room is big enough for a family. If you take the ground floor , you can easily access the small graound attached to your balcony. The view from Hotel is awesome. Probably the only hotel where you can see Kanchanzangha picks from all the room if you have opted for annexe building. FOOD and Room service is good but not outstanding.
This property is of WDTC. I stayed there with my family. Everything is good in this hotel. Rooms are neat and clean. All basic facilities are provided in rooms. Geyser is also available in bathroom. Kanchenjunga view was awesome from room window. Services are quick. Food is tasty. It is of good quality but there are no more food varieties available. Location is excellent. Hotel appearance is very beautiful. Reception was fine. Staff is cooperative and helpful. There is no more outdoor activity available. Garden was beautiful. Darjeeling place is very nice for tourism. Hotel is fully recommendable.
There are two types of building with different budget. 1. Main Building - Bigger room with Balcony attached for viewing Kanchanjungha range directly. 2. Annex Building (adjacent to the Main Building) - Economy room which is equally big but no Balcony attached. All rooms are wooden floored and equiped with room heater,tv etc. Bathrooms are big and with all modern fittings with 24hrs running hot & cold water. There is a lone at the back of the hotel where one can have beautiful view of mountain ranges. It has a restaurant & Bar inside. Also have a big conference room. Food is pretty good. There is security guard 24 hrs at the entrance of the hotel. Location is just add the cherry on the cake. just 5-10 mins walk to the mall and has a good access of taxi. Do not expect the hotel boy on their toes whenever you call since it\'s a govt hotel but they are fairly helpful and nice behaved.
Revisiting the queen of the Himalayas after a long time. The deja vu was quite exhilarating. Enjoyed everything that was on offer. The location of the hotel was excellent. The staff were very co operating and helpful. They arranged the car for the site seeing tours at reasonable rates. The food served was also good. The room service was kind enough to give us a wake up knock ( at the door , thankfully ) , at 3:45 the in morning for our trip to Tiger hill.
