The Elgin, Darjeeling was a very good example of a poor quality. Especially the cleanness of the rooms and hotel facilities. The room given to us was not even a standard room (which was promised). The view from the hotel is not worth as it is surrounded by buildings. The breakfast could have been a bit better however decent enough. The dinner food was more than acceptable. I would strongly not recommend this hotel.

This is one of the premium hotels of Darjeeling, rooms was superb. Corridors are fully covered with red carpet feels like you in a palace. Outside views are very good it contains a small lawn with beautiful flowers and shed year and one other best thing is itís hardly 5 min walking distance away from Mall road. Hotel has a separate bar area with superior interiors and very good restaurant with candle light dinner. Staff is also very help full and educated. Overall its best hotel to spend your days specially for couples and family.

It is a Heritage Hotel which has an ambience from the Colonial times.

Best Experience: The rooms are beautiful and the location is very close to the mall

Worst Experience: The food is suited to the Western Travellers and if you are looking for Indian food, you will be dissapointed
