Clean room & worth for money

Posted 23 Dec, 2015

I have visited the hotel for honeymoon. The hotel staff were very good. They also provided me the Wi-Fi facility that help me. The room of hotel was very clean. The most excellent thing about room is the have provided the room heater as well as the hot water facility for 24 hours, which is very helpful when you are spending night in Darjeeling. They provided the mountain view for the room. The also give complimentary breakfast. I must say breakfast quality and quantity was excellent.

Posted 26 Mar, 2009

My husband and me had been a little too busy lately and had hardly got anytime for each other. During the Republic Day weekend we therefore, decided to go to Darjeeling to make good for the lost time. We sat online and were trying to find a good hotel. We came across Sinclairs and we liked it. We flew to Bagdogra and then headed for our destination in a car. The hotel looked inviting and the wooden flooring made it feel warm and cozy. We were given a friendly welcome with steaming Darjeeling tea. Our room was spacious and clean and everything felt homely. This is what we needed. We took our time to get ready for lunch at the hotel restaurant. It was a sunny day and we wanted to make the best of that. We took a map from the hotel and set off to explore Darjeeling. The hotel being close to the mall and other landmark sites was a boon for us. We found the bar the right place to relax as we helped ourselves to our favorite drinks. We came back relaxed and thanks to Sinclairs we got the break that we so much needed.

A family holiday with excellent interiors

Posted 15 Jun, 2015

Darjeeling, the place itself is so beautiful that any hotel/guest house looks beautiful. But amongst all we were lucky to choose Sinclairs Hotels for our family trip in March. The moment we stepped in, the first feeling was like standing inside a Victorian era building with a touch of heritage. The milk white resort with complete wooden flooring and walls makes you feel really special. Next the rooms were big, airy with a huge bay window overlooking the gorgeous Kanchenjungha. The coffee table and sofa near the bay window used to be my favourite place. It had a led TV with cable connection and a really good room heater. The bathroom was dry and absolutely modernized. Last but not the least, the service and the food quality was exceptional. The only negative point being the last 50 meters that you need to walk to reach the hotel was really stiff and needs immediate repairing.

View was awesome from the room

Posted 14 Apr, 2017

January was the month I stayed in this hotel for holiday with my girlfriend. The hotel location was on the main road and destination was very good. The hotel surrounding was very nice and had a great view. The hotel appearance was nice and ambience was impressive. The best view was from the room for Kanchanjanga Peak. The hotel front office was nice and people were very helpful. I booked the hotel online and the room provided was excellent and had a great view. The hotel service was on time although the food was a bit expensive at the hotel. There was no as such complimentary breakfast was available. Paid pick and drop was available and in fact the hotel had so many outdoor activities available. The overall my experience was very nice and I was satisfied with the stay.
