Awesome experience with fantastic food

Posted 25 Jul, 2015

While I planned Sikkim tour, I thought that at Lachung we might face bad food and hotel as it was village and atmosphere was very cold. But on surprise when we visited, I found whole different experience. First the place Lachung, no words to explain it. Hotel appearance was classic. Staff was very co-operative. Heater was not provided in room. Food was fantastic, they gave us their variety and our Gujju food too, khichdi.

Excellent service and experience the real silence

Posted 7 Jul, 2015

Real Sikkim's experience here. Excellent example of north east architecture. Location is nice and you can see beautiful Himalayas from your rooms. People are interactive and very helpful. Nice food with combination of Punjabi and North Eastern. Something special points are:-. * Small museum on the top of hotel explains the culture of Sikkim in short period. * Traditional dressing of Sikkim is available at hotel only, so enjoy the photography with those dresses . . * Experience the real silence

Good location but hotel stay was not worth

Posted 14 May, 2015

The rooms, food and overall not worth staying. The ground floor rooms are cramped up and just next to the so called reception. The food was not at all good and they serve only fixed menu no ala chart. The toilets are in run down condition with the geysor not at all efficient. The good points, is the location it offers a beautiful view of the mountains.

Good hotel with excellent service

Posted 13 Apr, 2015

Lachung is the place where you don't have many options for hotels. Modern Residency is good hotel with excellent service, each and every person is very humble and they always ask you whether you want something. We kept all our rooms open without any fear. They provided lovely bonfire in that cool climate and hotel manager also took us for trek near Lachung waterfall. Food is excellent, they make whatever you like to have.

Place is good staff scare a lot; better to avoid

Posted 28 Mar, 2015

The hotel is a good one. They property is beautiful with a good view. Rooms are good and can recommend this hotel for the same. The problem is the people out there. When we entered they said there is no food available at the hotel and said that during off season guests have to get vegetables and they cook. We were fine getting it and they said that they will get them for us for an additional cost as they had to go 5 km walking We decided to stroll down the place and look for available options. 200 m down the road we found a shop with all groceries and they also offered dinner. We ordered and said we will be back in an hour. On return to the hotel when we conveyed that we are having food outside, they told us stories that north Sikkim is filled with bad people and they even poison food. They insisted that we should not risk having outside food. There were stories saying that at times after 6 months the medicine starts taking effect. The same evening out of nowhere they said they have options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Will recommend to stay away from this place.

Good hospitality; great staff & tasty food

Posted 7 Jan, 2015

Considering a remote location as Lachung, we were very lucky to have stayed in Modern Residency. The ambience of the hotel and the staff is great. You cannot expect a lot of luxuries at such a location especially at the price that they charge. Staying at Modern Residency was very comfortable and totally value for money. The personal attention provided by the staff to each guest is amazing. They make a genuine effort to make your stay memorable and that made us leave the place with a warm feeling of respect for them. Definitely recommend this place for stay. Their food is also very tasty and fresh (everything in Lachung is veg).

Location of the hotel was convenient

Posted 18 Nov, 2014

The location of the hotel was convenient, but the entrance was not so attractive. The best thing was there were shopping markets near to the hotel and activities like indoor, outdoor games were provided in the hotel so this hotel was recommendable to other travellers. The Buffet system was there in the food. The hotel was some expensive but compared to the overall facilities provided by them it was value for money. My suggestion is that they should renovate their hotel and maintain it properly.

One of the best stay, we enjoyed it

Posted 6 Nov, 2014

It was one of the best stay at this hotel we enjoyed at this hotel. The hotel has a beautiful ambience. The staff and services were professional and kind. The room was neat and clean well maintained with functioning amenities and had a mountain view from the room. The check-in and check-out was on time. There were no activities and sightseeing trips provided by the hotel. The food that we had tasted at this hotel was delicious. The hotel was 100% valuable for the amount spent by me. The hotel charges 2500 rupees including food in the year or 2012 . .

We never felt that we are not at home and got the same food as we get at our home, the hotel was very neat and clean. The view of the scenery from the terrace was very excellent.

peace and royal treatment

Posted 6 Jun, 2014

What an ambiance and hospitality by the manager and the staff. Food had to be mentioned, for this hotel itself is pure vegetarian and quality of food is excellent and it is served with love. That is what is so special about this place. Since no mobile signals were working, we felt that we were totally cut off from our family, but the way staff treated us and made us happy by serving coffee, tea and pakodas we felt really happy. A nice place for a peaceful stay.
