Main Olde Bellevue Hotel, Darjeeling
PO Box 77, Chowrasta The Mall, Nehru Road Darjeeling
Ranked 71 of 536 hotels in Darjeeling
I stayed in Olde Main Bellevue Hotel the month of October 2016 with my family. The hotel was conveniently located in the middle city. The room was spacious and comfortable but for one hour I did not get hot water. The staffs were friendly. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was very good. Rooms provided were good with Wi-Fi facilities was not provided. Activities were not in this hotel. I did not take food in this hotel. Overall the services provided in this hotel were good.
I visited Darjeeling a couple of times and each time I have chosen this hotel to stay. As one of my favorite place, Darjeeling has a picturesque view of Kanchenjunga mountain and I went there for see its majesty each time.The hotel is a oldest property in Darjeeling probably. It has a beautiful location just beside chowrasta and offers a old charm. The rooms are quite spacious and airy and it feels that I am staying on the British era.All the rooms have fireplace, although they are not used in these days I guess. They have renovated toilets. Anyone who is looking for a heritage stay in Darjeeling must visit this hotel.
let's first clarify the confusion related to the name,Bellevue.There are three hotels in Darjeeling with name Bellevue.The hotel Bellevue is situated just on Mall with mall facing rooms.Hotel olde (main)Bellevue Heritage hotel is situated just behind the Bellevue hotel and this is an old property .The Olde(Main)Bellevue hotel where i have stayed very recently is situated on mall road just opposite to famous Glenary's restaurant.This hotel is not an old property despite the name olde Bellevue,rather a nicely located hotel with spacious rooms , modern bathroom with true running hot water ,wooden floor and descent furniture along with clean,warm bedding materials.But the main USP of the room no:206 where i stayed for 03 nights in the month of December with temperature below 5 deg is the 05 Glass windows which offer bright sunlight through out the day and awesome view of the valley which includes perfect view of the mighty Kanchanjungha.The front office manager is very cheerful young man who is ready to help you in arranging your tour programme.The room boy Shankar,a Shahid kapoor look alike is more cheerful young man who is prompt in supplying hot water /tea/coffee with a smiling face.There is no restaurant in this hotel.But,when Glenary's restaurant is situated just opposite to your hotel and opium/keventers/frank ross are situated either opposite to or on left side of your hotel ,its not a big issue at all.I took my breakfast in Glenary's,lunch in Hasty Tasty ,snacks
Stayed there for one more time. Service is OK. No food only tea served if placed an order.price is little higher than expected.View is good leads directly to the valley.
The best part of the hotel was location. I didn't use Wi-Fi connection in the hotel. The check-in and check-out process was good. The staff behaviour was very good. It was an old building. The activity was not conducted by the hotel. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.
Overall Experience was great considering the location and the wonderful hotel rooms. The weather was great and the food was heavenly. The full view of Mount Kanchenjunga from the hotel room early in the morning and the melodious music of the street singers was a daily icing on the cake.
