The Destination of the Darjeeling is average. The Location of the hotel was very good. The appearance of the hotel was lovely. The infrastructure of the hotel was very impressive. The front desk was good. The services were good. The room was beautiful. The room services were not good. The food was available but we didn’t have food from this hotel. The activities were superb. There was no swimming pool. There were no other fun amenities. I suggest this hotel to everyone for the stay. Overall this hotel was nice to stay.

I visited Darjeeling it was a family trip. I went there in the month of December 2016. I booked it online. The location of the hotel was easy to reach. The appearance of the hotel was good. The front office staff was well behaved. The service was on time. We have booked the deluxe room and the room service was good enough. There were good views from the windows of the room so the room was not renovated. The food was tasty and we have enjoyed the food. No activities were there in this hotel.

Normal Hotel

Posted 28 Jun

For a holiday trip with friends I went to the Darjeeling in the month of December 2016. I booked my stay through online via Goibibo.com. The destination was normal. The location of the hotel was near to the transport and market. The building of the hotel was looking too old. The service was quite good. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The basic facilities were not working properly. We had food outside. The normal parking space was available.

On my family holiday trip I went to the Darjeeling in the month of December 2016. I booked my stay through online. The location of the hotel was near to all the places. The appearance of the hotel was not good. The hotel is not well decorated. On the website how they showed the room that was not at all like in the reality. The hot water was not available for 24 hours. The reception staff was normal. The service was not good. The restaurant was not attached to the hotel so we went outside to have food. The Tv was not maintained.

For a family holiday trip I went to the Darjeeling in the month of December 2016. I booked my stay through online via Goibibo.com. The city was not clean and good. The location of the hotel was easily accessible. The hotel is well decorated and maintained. The check-in and check-out did smoothly. The staff was cooperative. The service was provided on time. The intercom was not working so that was difficult for the service. We didnt have food in the hotel. The activities were not available. The pick and drop facility was available.

Comfortable Living at a heritage building

5.9/7
Posted 6 Feb, 2014

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.

Excellent hotel with good services

5.8/7
Posted 28 Mar

I made a stay at this hotel in the month of January 2017 with family. The overall experience was very good at this hotel. I liked very much with the location and services. The destination was very good as I liked the zoo very much. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was very accessible and located centrally. The best way to reach the hotel is by Gandhi bus stop. The appearance of the hotel was very good as the interior was very good. The booking and front office was very good since the receptionist people are good in responding. It was a spot booking. The food at this hotel was good as the taste and quality was good. The services given by the staff were good as they were very prompt. The room allotted to me was excellent as it was spacious maintained well with all the amenities in good condition. There was a Wi-Fi and it was good too. My suggestion is to provide with the adequate lighting in the lobby. And there should be a room neater near the fire place especially in the chilled months. There was a Bath tub in the room but it was not workable. There was activity space hence there should provide with the activities.

Needs Improvement

4.5/7
Posted 13 Jan, 2016

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.
