"Terrible experience at the hotel, very poor"

1.8/7
Posted 9 May

Went to Rishop on a holiday trip with family. The destination was average. The location was also terrible. The room appearance was very bad. The reception staff and front office staff was extremely bad. I feel cheated by the hotel. The service was the worst, they never provided anything on time or even cared for the customers. The room facility was also bad. I booked a 3bed room. The room service was very bad. The food was not proper, I ordered non-veg food, but it was very bad. The people were getting the food very late after an hour, they did not even consider that little children were around. There were no activities available at the hotel. I booked the room directly.

"The service at the hotel was very poor."

4.4/7
Posted 8 May

I visited Rishop for a holiday with my family. Rishop is was a good place to visit. The location of the hotel was fabulous the view from the hotel was amazing. We had a good view of Kanchenjunga from the hotel it was breath taking. The overall look of the hotel was excellent. It had wooden flooring interior done and it was a nice experience. There was no front office or reception available at the hotel. The overall services at the hotel were not delightful. We reached the hotel and at that time it was very cold so we requested for hot water and it was not provided. Evening there was a power cut and in our room, there was no light back up. Every evening there was a power failure and we had to manage without power backup. They said the generator was not working we managed with candles. I booked our stay from a travel agent. The room at the hotel was well maintained neat and clean. I was quite cozy and comfortable. It was very cold during our visit and there was no room heater provided to us. We had food from the hotel and it was ok. They gave roti and chicken dish for dinner it was nice. There were no extra activities available at the hotel. I booked the hotel through a travel agent. There was a space available the hotel should have arranged for a campfire to make our experience worthwhile.

"A very unpleasant experience."

5.5/7
Posted 8 May

Rishabh is beautiful but because of the weather we were unable to do a lot of sightseeing. Location is convenient and also very scenic view. 360 degree open view is very impressive. Hotel appearance is very appealing and elegant. Front office staff was not very responsive. They were unable to provide whatever we requested. Rooms are comfortable and well-designed with very good view. Food is of very poor quality and very unhygienic. Overall hospitality is very substandard. We had to cut down our trip duration because of the poor hospitality. We had booked our hotel through holiday IQ. They should provide at least cable TV and wifi.

"Tasty Food"

6.3/7
Posted 8 May

Rishyap is a very beautiful place I traveled with my family. Hotel location was excellent, The view from the hotel was nice there was a field in front of the hotel. It was a nice place to sitting there and relax. The food was very good and tasty, they serve khichri that was too good and they serve puri in the morning breakfast was also good, The two things I like the most. The room was a little bit dirty it should have the cleaner, Overall services were good and fast they provide everything on time. The hotel appearance was beautiful.

"Service is excellent"

6.9/7
Posted 7 May

This is the second time that I visited Rishyap and stayed in Kanchan View Tourist Lodge again, in the same room. The only difference is, 4 years back I visited with my parents and this time with my wife. Like the last time, I would not need to comment on the service as it is and was always A-Class. It is located on the top of the hill, and so we should not forget the problem with water and few other amenities. Still, they are providing warm water which is extremely crucial in this chilling weather, as a Geyser is attached in the bathroom. The food cannot be compared with Chef's special but are above the standards. Service is excellent and so I preferred this hotel even this time. The Kanchenjunga view from the room is un-beatable and un-matchable from any hotel, though you can't blame the hotel if the weather is bad. Overall my experience is again Excellent. My rating is 100/100. Note: For those who wants 5 star or 7 star service. Be sensible ! Please do not expect 5 star or 7 star service.

"The room service at evening and night should be upgrade."

5.8/7
Posted 5 May

I visited this place for a holiday with my family. Kalimpong was excellent. The location of the hotel was good it was easy to reach it's on the main road and quite accessible. The appearance of the hotel was very good, the front office staffs were very helpful and friendly. I liked the hospitality of the staff and the way of talking. The overall service was just fine, the view from the hotel was less, the room service should upgrade a bit. The room was very well maintained. The food at the hotel was tasty. There were not extra activities at the hotel, it was a hilly area it's not feasible for them to arrange any activities there. The booking was done through a travel agent. I will refer this hotel to other travelers. The hotel should improve their room service at the night and evening.

I liked the hotel, I had no issues there just the AC was having some problem and the geyser of the washroom was not working fine. It's a cold place and we definitely need hot water there. The location of the hotel was very nice. The only problem I faced there was about the geyser. Kalimpong was nice I liked the place. The appearance of the hotel was nice they definitely need some improvement at the maintence of the hotel. The booking was done online from Make My Trip. The front office staffs were helpful and his behavior was very good. I visited Kalimpong for a holiday with my wife. The food at the hotel was fine. The room was good neat and clean, they can improve the interior of the hotel. The overall service was very good, there were no extra activities available at the hotel. They have only rooms available at the hotel.

"They had less staff there but the service was good."

4.8/7
Posted 5 May

I visited Kalimpong for a personal visit with my family. I liked the place it was nice. The location of the hotel was fine, but it was bit difficult to reach there it was on a hill and the road was not too good leading to the hotel. It was difficult for the car to move on that road. The appearance of the hotel was good the staffs were very good the location was fine. The front office staff was very pleasant and very helpful. The same staff was around to take the order for food and he was very helpful. The room was not so spacious, there was less staff so the cleaning was not done so often. The hotel just had two staffs and they were managing everything. I did understand the situation but they were doing a fine job and we didn't face any difficulty there. The food at the hotel was very tasty, there were no complimentary meals. We need to pre-order so they can make proper arrangements for food. They had the basic requirements available but if you had any special request it needed to be ordered earlier. It was a rural area so there were not many extra activities available there. We did the booking from travel portal. The hotwater had time restriction.

"It was a great stay but the food was bit expensive and frequent power cuts."

5.1/7
Posted 5 May

I visited Kalimpong with my family and friends and it was a great stay at the hotel. I liked the view a lot it was in a great position. The location of the hotel was great and it had an amazing view. We did face few issues with a frequent power cut. The staffs did arrange generator for power back up but it should be more powerful. The look of the hotel was nice but it lacked few things. The rooms were not sound proof and it invaded the privacy as we could hear the conversation from the other room next to us. The behavior of the staffs was very good. They did provide us with drinking water on arrival, their service was excellent. The food at the hotel was very expensive maybe because it's in a hilly area and markets not being around. The taste was good but it was bit expensive. There were no extra activities available at the hotel, the view from the hotel was enough to cover up for the absence of activities.

"Good hotel with great services"

5.1/7
Posted 6 Mar

I visited this hotel in November for holiday with friend. The destination was good specially the natural beauty. The hotel location was good and convenient. The best way to reach this hotel by the cab. The hotel appearance was okay and the front office was not that great. I booked this hotel through travel agent. The room provided was nice and spacious. The hotel service was on time and staff's were very polite. The food was very good in quality and taste specially the complimentary breakfast. Travel desk was available although we didn't use the same. The overall my experience was very nice and I was satisfied with the stay as being a budget hotel we ourselves didn't expect much from the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to those who would like to have the Peak Kanchanjangha visit clearly from the hotel.

"Good experience with good rooms & food "

6.3/7
Posted 21 Dec, 2015

It was a dream come true to experience Mt. Kanchenjunga from every nook and corner of the lodge, Kanchan View Tourist Lodge. The appearance of the lodge from outside was pretty well. The rooms were airy, spacious and cosy too. We stayed at the first floor. The weather was too chilly and freezing that time. We stayed there for 2 nights, left the lodge on 25. 10. 2015 morning after having breakfast. The bedspreads and quilts were quite comfortable and clean too. Food was quite good, with special mention to Suji Chapati, which they made with suji atta. They served all non spicy meal with good taste. The lodge staff were exuberant enough. They were agile, and met with our expectations fairly. Their behaviour is mentionable, always rendered service with a smiling face, even if we made them confused. There was a restaurant on the ground floor, a well-maintained one sit and eat type place. It's indeed a good place to stay in as you get to see the mesmerising view of Mt. Kanchenjunga. Though best time to visit the place is during October to mid November, as Mt. Kanchenjunga will be clearly visible that time, as we experienced. One needs to buy mineral water from the lodge reception just to avoid water borne any kind of diseases. Power cuts were frequent though generator was there, but better to carry torch, candle, matchboxes etc. As the road condition is terrible especially from New Jalpaiguri station to Rishyap, so I would definitely think twice before giving a try again. Otherwise, the place was too good to be true. Next time, I will definitely bring along a pair of badminton rackets as there's an elongated space in front of the lodge for playing. A very good camera is also a must.

"Excellent room and service"

5.9/7
Posted 4 Nov, 2011

Me & my Wife reached Rishop on 3rd Oct\'11 evening @ around 7.00 pm. On the first look we really liked the room & the whole lodge. Our room was on the 1st flr which had a awesome view in the night itself. In the morning when we came out @ the corridor, Golden Kanchenjunga was in front of us..later when the sun came out it turned milky white..People around rishop came here just to view the peak as it had 1 of best views from here. On a whole it was an excellent experience. The room service & all was really good. No complaints whatsoever. We would definitely love to go there again in future..cheerz

"We spent a peaceful and lovely holiday in april at..."

6.5/7
Posted 29 Jul, 2011

We spent a peaceful and lovely holiday in april at kanchanview tourist lodge,rishop. This lodge is beautiful itself, essence of nature. All the snow peaked mountain khapg ,jalepla,simbo,kabroo nathula,rothung etc and .kanchanzongha were face to face with us all the time at hotel rooms. There is a wide space nd garden in front of your room and also has a sweet little hut to have a coffee or tea. We thought that there is no need to go anywhere as we enjoy all the beauty of lonely hilly remote village from here. This is the best experience I ever gain.
