We were returning from Lava, two hours distant from Kalimpong. Our itinerary was fixed. A day break in Kalimpong. So we were excited because, Lava is a remote place and offers lots of nature. Nature lovers will get a paradise out of it. I am also a nature lover, but found that spending one night at the place has given me a satirical experience, which I need to break by going to a place having lots of people, shops, busy roads etc. Kalimpong is perfect for that. Reached Kalimpong and searching for hotel and someone suggested this hotel. I was not looking for a 5 star but a decent and clean hotel, which I got. Rooms are quite spacious and furniture are well built and decorated well. I asked for Lunch and got it in 30 mins, which is good as per me. Food is also tasty as per my taste buds. If you are not looking for a royal stay at this beautiful hill station, you can take a chance in this hotel.

Overall, it was very nice. It was a little far from the city. The appearance of the hotel was good. The surroundings were good. There was no delay in check in and check out. The staff and service was good and friendly. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. There was no view from the room. All the amenities were working properly in the room. The food was good. There were no activities and sightseeing trip was not arranged. Parking facility was not available. It was value for money and would like to recommend it to others.

The staff was extremely courteous and did everything to make us feel at ease. The recreation activities are a must. The owner of that hotel and his son were really cooperative. They guided through the local sightseeing. The food was good was excellent too.

The hotel was conveniently location near city I did not find any difficulty to find it. The service of the staff was very good and friendly, helpful and hygienic. They were quick attentive and more concern about the guest. The appearance of the hotel was good. The room given to me was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. All the amenities were well placed and it was working properly. The check-in and check-out procedure was done quickly. The food was good with many varieties. There were no any activities provided by the hotel. I did not experience any sightseeing facilities by them. The stay was worthy and recommendable.

En-route new Jalpaiguri from Darjeeling stopped over for two nights purpose tour with family. Unprofessional approach regarding amenities and services a little out of town. Rates charged would fetch a better bargain at a more convenient location, cuisine not at all palatable, cleanliness not discernible, manager mostly unavailable.

We were group of 14 family members visited Kalimpong/ Sikkim/ Darjeeling. Kalimpong was first on the itinerary and Hotel Monarch was booked for us by Sai Holidays. The hotel being recently opened did not have all the facility required. There was no room service, no drinking water was kept in the room, also the food was not so good. We were even told to use water sparingly like try to avoid having bath since some more people were going to check in the next day. The manager/ owner is not aware of Kalimpong sight-seeing places. He sounds like a novice in the hotel industry. Does not know how to keep the customers satisfied with hospitality. I think lot to be improved if he has to survive in this hotel industry as there are many competitors. Anyway all the best. Otherwise Kalimpong is a beautiful place with exotic and beautiful flowers all over the place.

We stayed for one night at the hotel on our way back to Siliguri after spending 9 days at various locations across Sikkim. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were nice. However, considering the cold, the lack of carpeting was some what unexpected. The staff were very friendly and the manager was like our new best friend at Kalimpong. Overall we had no issues at the hotel. Our only regret was that we dint spend enough time at Kalimpong. If you are looking for adventure, contact the manager. He could hook you up with a team that offers everything from para-gliding to mountain biking.

Accommodation good. 24 hrs hot water supply in toilet. Front office not so attractive. No comment about restaurant and there is no bar facility. Position is good it is out side city. If you have personal vehicle it is good for one or two night stay. Service boy are helpful and efficient. So it is average to good in rating.

Located at just 2 Km from main Kalimpong market, it is a good hotel to stay. Hotel has spacious rooms & has picturesque scenic view in the back of balcony where you may enjoy taking a sip of Tea/Coffee. Services are just satisfactory and needs improvement. One has to chase his orders for compliance, though the food preparation is satisfactory. Room is spacious but the double bed is just enough to accommodate only two but a family of three will find hard to accommodate in bed. They charge extra for a guest accommodating in a double bed but don't provide extra cot instead.

Just 2 km from the main market, monarch is a good place to stay. Spacious rooms, neat and clean. Though for the food you need to instruct the staff. Staffs are very polite and sweet and good service. Sightseeing facility was also excellent. Spending the evening under the night sky with a coffee in the balcony with your beloved beside you was fantastic.
