Nature view from the terrace is outstanding

Posted 9 Sep, 2013

We went to this place probably in the month of june or July. we reached this hotel in late afternoon. First thing about the place, It was cool as compare to delhi, Nature beauty was amazing and location of this hotel in kalimpong is exactly at the right place, this hotel has got beautiful garden with lots of different flowers, a terrace, In the morning people can go and take a walk, do exercise, yoga, coz it is just behind the valley, and Nature view from the terrace is outstanding, if people want they can have their breakfast, lunch and dinner at the terrace and with the food they can enjoy Pleasant fresh air, fresh water and not but the least nature's beauty, Not about the hotel, but Kalimpong place itself is a beautiful place, there are lots of things which people can see, like, there is cactus garden, i think a lady is a owner, she has got almost kinds of cactus, there are little roads, beautiful wooden made little house, different kinds of flowers and etc, About the hotel, Out look is awesome, they way rooms are , I mean some rooms has got same kind of structure, But are differently arranged and made so they are really very beautiful, Hotel food was fresh and healthy. Hotel staff was helpful and cooperative. That is all i want to say. if i get chance i would like to go to same place and would like to stay in the same hotel. Thanks for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quality of food was much better

Posted 2 Feb, 2016

The hotel was located near to the city. The surrounding of the hotel was clean. The interior and exterior of the hotel was well decorated. The staffs at the hotel were kind. The check in and checkout procedure was quick and easy. The room which they had given to me was spacious and clean. All the amenities in the room were in working condition. The hot and cold water facility was provided by the hotel. The laundry service was not provided by the hotel. I had seen a garden view from my room. The Wi-Fi connection was provided by the hotel. The food which they served to me was delicious in taste and the price was affordable. The quality and quantity of food was much better. The activity like swimming pool, gym, spa, etc. was not arranged by the hotel. The hotel had not organized any sightseeing trip. I would like to visit this hotel again. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.

Centrally located and polite staff

Posted 25 Dec, 2015

Hotel was convincing with all the amenities and with good ambiance what we expected. Food was mouth watering with hygiene expected. Staff was very polite and have manners to talk to customers. Centrally located in the heart of the city where things are easily available.

Good room with all amenities, nice view from room.

Posted 10 Apr, 2014

Earlier I stayed in this hotel in year 2002 and was very much impressed by the homely ambiance of this budget property. The hotel has been renovated, more rooms have been added in annexed building but some way has lost the homely atmosphere which was main USP of this hotel .The hotel is located in prime land, just 1 km walking distance from main bazar and bus stand. Whenever I needed a car, I just stood outside the hotel gate and got it within 5 minutes. The hotel is having a restaurant, a beautiful garden and a children park which are definitely added attraction of this hotel. All the 3 rooms, I booked were spacious,clean and nicely decorated with carpets,wooden walls,modern black wood furniture, photo frames, LCD TV and all other modern amenities were available in rooms and attached bathrooms. The room no. 415 where i stayed for 2 nights was nice view room offering good view of the valley, the garden, some big trees with chirping hill moyna and bit of mighty kanchanjungha. But everything was not good on first night, there were frequent power cuts, the backup generator was not functioning, they even could not supply candles, the intercom in my room was dead so I had to travel to extreme down stair to have drinking water and surprisingly the TV has got no channel for kids. But they recovered a bit on second day and provided reasonable service. In spite of all hiccups, I ll say, Garden Reach Hotel is perhaps best option in Kalimpong for budget travellers and I sincerely request the admin to improve the service a bit.
