A good budget home stay

Posted 26 Oct, 2015

This was my first attempt to have a home stay with family so my expectations were just mixed not high or low. But I can rate the stay was OK, comfortable and far from crowded place like mall, well if you don't like crowd. The location of the hotel is just 3 km from mall road/chourasta, and taxi stand nearby may be 100 mt from hotel. Its just a home stay where-in ,may be the owner/co-owner/care taker also stays there. The hotel has got 4 deluxe room, one premium room and I think 02 standard rooms. Well I had booked two deluxe rooms. Rooms were OK, well furnished with LED TV with complementary cable service, electric cattle, etc. Well though small in size no place for the third bed or child cot. There were no lockets to keep cloths also no place to keep your luggage. I don't know why its thought by low budget hotels that luggage does not requires a place to rest. Luggage is also equally important like us and also needs a clean rest place & not the chairs/stools/sofas where they are forced to be kept. Anyways though room is small but comfortable, beds having electric blankets, though in one of the room it wasn't working. Room requires more cleanliness. Toilets were though clean but needs more improvement in maintainability. Geysers should work properly as this is the basic requirement in hill station. Well don't expect for room AC, a lawn, gym, spa, etc. , or any other amenities as those are nil, as its home stay, and just stay rooms. The hotel also serve food with limited varieties, but keep in view home stay, its OK. One cant expect much choices. Food tastes like home made food, which generally we don't want in outings as everyone wants a change from his routine when he or she go holidaying. Well a certain note, hotel requires a lots of improvement in food hygiene, utensils hygiene, water hygiene as I can say it was not up-to the mark. Though by luck non of us fell ill due to this issue. Word of cautions for old age people is that if you have any knee related issue, then think twice as one has to climb walk a bit to reach the hotel as well a to the food serving room. About the best part of the hotel is the direct view of Mighty Kanchenjunga in front side of all rooms, though we couldn't see due to fog. As well as the UN Heritage toy train passes next to the hotel, one can watch the train passing by many time for photo shoots. On Service from don't expect much, but be assured they will take care of you to their best. During stay you may also find one of the service guy playing guitar and you enjoy the light music.

Nice hotel with good & friendly staff

Posted 6 Jul, 2015

We stayed here with my family in second week June. Hotel doesn't claim to be a gazed lodging and its actual, rather it's a homestay with well disposed staff Few focuses I might want to edify. Extraordinary vibe. Children neighbourly grounds. Clean and all around designed rooms. Great wi-fi speed. Crisply made food - kind of home made sustenance. Room radiator, Electric Bed warmer, 24 hr boiling hot water. Benevolent and extremely mannered staff. 4 km far from Darjeeling. You would effectively get shared taxi Rs. 10 for every head from Dali taxi stand which is only not as much as a min stroll from inn. Bewildering perspective from each room. You would discover the Mt. Kanchenjunga at your entryway step if climate is clear. Shayota (Owner) a debt of gratitude is in order for assistance when my wife got harmed. At long last, I would without a doubt prescribe this inn to everybody.

Lovely stay, wonderful view

Posted 1 Nov, 2015

I was completely engulfed with the polite and kind behaviour of all the staff. The owner cum manager Shoyeta madam and her staff gave a personal touch to the hospitality of guests. It's a lovely, peaceful and tidy home stay facility with really wonderful view of snow capped Kangchenjunga range when weather is good. Sometimes, clouds can be seen from the hotel balcony as well. Overall, it was a lovely stay. Clean rooms, foods, Wi-Fi etc. Was all present.

Amazing experience & awesome location

Posted 16 Nov, 2015

First of all, I must say the city is really beautiful. The location of the hotel was just awesome. Just opposite to Kangchenjunga mountain. Clear view of snow cladded mountains. Very close to market area but still far from hustle and bustle of the city. Toy train tracks were just down the steps from the hotel. Can see the Train so many times and feel the smell of smoke.
