A very good city to visit. It was early in the month of March I visited this place for a holiday trip with my family. The hotel location was good. The location surrounding was good. I took the car to reach the hotel. The outlook of the hotel was appealing, the interiors were good. Front office was also good. The staff's were polite. It was an online booking. There was no delay during the check-in and check-out. Rooms were very spacious, everything was almost working. WiFi was available. The food and drink was good to taste. The complimentary breakfast was good. The service could have been made faster. The other activities of the hotel were average. The overall experience in the hotel was good.
I stayed in this hotel in the month of February 2017. It was personnel trip. The destination of the hotel was good. My hotel location was not good, since it was not conveniently located. The look of the hotel was not good, as it looked old. There was no reception in the hotel. I booked the hotel through online. Hotel service was terrible, as there were not even one staff. The room allotted to me was not good, while it was not clean. I did not take food in the hotel restaurant. There was free WiFi facility in the hotel. Overall experience at this hotel was very terrible.
My overall experience at this hotel was excellent as it was my relaxation trip with my family. The hotel is located conveniently hence there were no difficulties in finding it. The location and appearance was good and the staff were polite and very helpful and the room allotted to me was good with all the amenities in functioning condition. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process and the hotel is worth for the money and I surely suggest this hotel to other travellers.
The staff's were well behaved in the hotel. The location of the hotel was good. The transportation facility was not provided by the hotel. The check in and checkout was done on time at the hotel. There was no suggestion for this hotel. The garden was available at the hotel. I had booked room at the hotel by online. I had visited this hotel with my family for holiday trip. All the facility was provided in the room.
It was a perfect hotel with nice rooms. It can be highly recommended. They had a lovely heritage look internally and externally as well. The historical things were maintained well. The hotel was well maintained and had all the basic facilities. The room had all basil amenities and all were working fine. Their hospitality was good and I had a good stay there. The view from my room was just okay. The cleanliness of the room was done on regular basis. The food was served in buffet system. There were no activities provided by the hotel. It was a relaxation trip with family. The hotel was conveniently located near to the city. The staff were also very friendly.
The overall experience in this hotel was admirable but I was not happy with the dining hall, which was in entrance. This was an official trip went for one day in the month of August. The hotel was located in the fine location. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was in traditional look. The environment of the hotel was beautiful with the gardens view. The staff in the hotel were friendly also quick to respond. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The room allotted to me was good along with daily cleaning. Cleanly maintained bed sheets and pillows were good particularly football ground view from the room was perfect. Mainly washrooms have hygienically maintained along with good hot water facility. I had only breakfast in the hotel, which was very good but most of the time we had our food outside the hotel. There were no activities sponsored by the management. I suggest changing the dining hall from entrance to other place. I refer this hotel for other travellers also.
After a great stay at the more remote but very beautiful Pandim Pelling hotel from the same Elgin group, I was expecting an even better experience at this Gangtok heritage hotel of theirs. We were looking for atmosphere, and a leisurely time, which is why we picked this. The location is unique, it overlooks a football stadium and it is a pleasure to watch the teams practice in the cold air as you sip your hot tea. It is also close to the main market that has lots of shopping and dining options We got a suite room in the heritage building and it was beautiful. The staff always tried to help. But that is it, that's the best I can say It has royal history, famous people have stayed there (Dalai Lama) but it is living on faded glories. The heritage certificate in the lobby clearly shows that the validity date has lapsed and so has the maintenance Staff wear uniforms that are soiled and smell. Buffet service is very slow and poorly coordinated (Rotis arrive as the subzi finishes, you get the idea ). The quality of the food is poor. Aloo-puri-idli stuff. Like a wedding/railways caterer from 'middle India' 15 years ago. All drowning in oil. The menu perhaps reflects their majority clientele. Can't be sure. India has evolved but this hotel has not. The bonfire in the lawns was welcome, but not the loud music till about 10 pm - we weren't expecting 'party music' in a hill resort hotel If you are planning to check-out early in the morning, you may not get staff to complete the billing and there was confusion on paying by credit card for transportation services arranged through the hotel - they wanted cash only but finally accepted a credit card I would request the owners/promoters to invest in and revamp this hotel and upgrade the quality of the staff and the menu. The hotel needs to decide it's positioning. It can be a lot better and it would be a great pity to let it slide.
