Top Reviews of Pineridge Hotel
Writing a review about the Pineridge Hotel is different. It’s like writing a review about your own home. That's what this hotel has been to me during all these years whenever I've traveled to Darjeeling. Pineridge is unique in its location - its right on the Chowrasta!!! For the uninitiated, the Chowrasta or the Mall is the heart of Darjeeling town. Located on top of Nehru Road, this is a nice flat land where tourists and locals come to lounge in the sun, take a seat on one of the many benches along the periphery, and watch the wonderful views of the mountain peaks and valleys all around. If you want to feel the real vibe of Darjeeling, watch people and activities, this is the place to come. And this is right outside your Hotel. Chowrasta is just one step away from the hotel lobby. Pineridge Hotel is now a heritage building which retains beautifully the architecture of the British colonial days. As you enter the hotel through the huge heavy teak wood doors with glasses, you will see a large antique mirror in front and the reception counter on the right. From the reception and the lounge area, there is a long carpeted corridor with wooden paneling on the wall, and as you walk along the passage, look around and see the high ceiling, you can feel the intricacies of the colonial architecture. Rooms are large and have teak wood and mahogany furniture that are mostly antique. There is a dressing table with an oval mirror with carved mahogany wood and an antique chair. The large wooden cupboard has a full size mirror. The rooms also have a sofa and a table where you can relax and have your tea. Rooms are carpeted and also have fireplaces. There is a TV in the rooms with standard cable channels. The staff is always available for you for anything you may require to make your stay comfortable and this is helpful especially for first-timers to Darjeeling. Suraj and his colleagues are always there to answer all your queries and arrange for any assistance that you may require. I highly recommend the Pineridge Hotel to anyone fancying a trip to Darjeeling. I promise it will be your most memorable one.
Pine Ridge is a hotel I would come back to a million times just for its fantastic location - right on Chowrasta and within 1-5 minutes walking distance from all the famous places in Darjeeling like Glenary's, Keventer's, Nathmulls, Konga's, Shangri-La (right opposite), Chai Chun, etc. As well as the walking route that covers all the viewing points, churches, museums etc. When you feel lazy, you can just go sit on the benches on Chowrasta and enjoy the evening shows - they're ten seconds away. Note: If you like to stay in quiet, off-beat areas then this is not the right choice because it is right in the middle of the buzz. As for rooms and service - our rooms were the newer, renovated ones and they were pretty good. I've heard that all rooms aren't equally great - so, take your chances with that. They have at least fifty rooms. The hotel is decently clean - not shining in every corner, but nothing that would cause difficulty. The washroom in my room was almost as big as the room itself which was huge, was very clean, and had running hot water 24*7. Room service was done everyday. The view from the window was very nice! Of course, not all rooms are the same so do your research before you put your money on this. But the hotel is so conveniently located that I'd choose it every time, even if I had smaller or worse rooms - because you can literally stay out exploring the whole day due to it's location!
Have stayed in Pineridge Hotel, Darjeeling, several times. The location is very good, just besides the mall, so shops, restaurants, etc are a stone's throw away. The rooms are okay, some of the rooms feature antique furniture (though not in very good condition). No WiFi, or play area for children. There is a small open area, though not very clean. The service is not up to the mark, tea/coffee often takes about 30 mins to be delivered - and sometimes requires a reminder. The breakfast (toast and omelette) was served without any cutlery (spoon or fork). We waited for about 15 mins for them and then ate with our hands as we were getting late and couldn't wait any longer. Didn't have lunch or dinner, so can't comment on the cooking. Some facilities need to be improved, like a few more plug points for charging phones/laptops etc would be welcome. The room had just one (apart from the TV plug), so you couldn't charge 2 phones simultaneously. The geyser was another problem, the water flow from the hot tap was a trickle, so it took a lot of time and waiting. Overall the hotel scores due to the location, but needs to improve service for a pleasant stay.

The check-in and check-out was on time in the hotel.
It was a dream stay. The hotel was right on the mall. We thought that we were in the mall whole day. We enjoyed the sunrise everyday from the hotel and also from mahakal temple. Besides the hotel room was superb. The big room, location furniture got us in the old days. Colonial feelings were smelt there. There was a complete privacy also. Only wish there was a moderate restaurant was there for food. But we loved the hotel. I wish I go there once again.
