Overall it was a good experience and had a wonderful time with family. The service and other things could have been better the quality of food can be improved. Extra fun activities can be arranged inside the hotel to improve user experience. Would like to visit again as the place(Darjeeling) is awesome.

Hotel Dolphin in Darjeeling is located at a wonderful spot from where you get the view of entire Kanchenjunga ranges. However, apart from the view, there is nothing good about the hotel. Cleanliness, service, food all are poor. Maintenance is not good and the staff members too are not very cooperative.

On a clear day you will get amazing view of mighty Kanchenjunga from the front view rooms. Rooms are comfortable though a newly built hotel is obstructing the side views but only a bit. Food is average and the menu is very limited and slightly overpriced. Connection to room heater (already installed in all rooms) is available on request with charge of Rs. 300 per 12 hour. Managers Basab, Gourango are very helpful and the room boy Uttam is very very soft spoken and nice. I recommend this hotel to those who wants to stay away from the hustle and bustle from the city of Darjeeling.

We stayed in room no 502 at hotel dolphin, Darjeeling on April 2015. Our observations are as follows;

As per normal practice 20% or 1 day charge is being taken in case of advance booking. In our case, at their Calcutta office they had taken full 2 days charge in advance which was Rs 6000+. The hotel room was too small & cramped to walk, forget about opening your luggage. Moreover they have ladders to climb to reach the rooms but no stairs, not even a dinning hall, but a corridor. We asked for the linen & the same which was given was completely torn. We asked for drinking water but according to them no aqua guard facility available. They have no wardrobe in the room to keep the clothes. There is hardly any water supply in the toilet. Alternatives were available. No room vacuum or proper cleaning systems were there. Now its up-to the future tourists to take a call if they want to stay

After reaching Darjeeling we booked Hotel Dolphin. It was one of the best hotel in darjeeling. The hotel was located near to the Kanchangangha Mountain. Me and my family was in here for 7 days. We enjoyed here very much. The hotel was nice, big. The hotel room was nicely decorated, clean. Bathroom was clean. Food was healthy, hygienic and on time served. The view from the hotel was awesome, in early morning the view of sunrise between the mountains was just awesome.

Stayed here with my family for 3 days and was really satisfied with the overall facilities that were provided at a good economical rate. The hotel is clean and beautifully decorated. Rooms have new furnitures, the main plus point the rooms have large window which gives a wonderful view of the clouds & the mountains. Staff behaviour was good and travel guide and other travel arrangement were made by them. Overall, very satisfied, everyone of us were delighted to see the clouds flowing just outside our window.

The hotel is very clean, reception was small but nice. The rooms were clean and you can see the the whole range of Mount Kanchenjunga from your room, lying on bed. Although the food was not too good. Overall, it was a nice stay. I would like to stay there whenever I will visit Darjeeling again.

The location is great, just a few minutes walk from Chowrasta, off the DM bunglow. The spacious deluxe rooms offer clear view of the Himalayan Queen Mt Kanchenjunga. The wooden cottage styled interiors give a perfect cosy feel mashed up over some reflecting mellow light from the mirror faced head stands. The fire place sets alight the spirits on a chilly winter night when the full moon is out and the Himalayan damsel sparkles in sober silvery love. The food is very good and hospitality exceeds expectation. An every time stay for me.
