"Absolutely Awesome!"

5.8/7
Posted 8 months ago

Snowlion Homestay is a wonderful place to stay in Darjeeling. We had booked couple of months in advance and were allotted the view facing room on the 2nd floor. Kanchenjunga ranges were magnificent and the hills surrounding it were a sight to cherish. Our room was **** and span and the service was very good. The family room where they served us breakfast was like so homely and well decorated in authentic Tibetan style. Choice of breakfast was also good. The matriarch of this place was such a lovely lady who once upon a time was a nurse who did her training in Edinburgh which was such a co-incidence as my mother also did her nursing course from there. Loved the place and would definitely recommend to everyone.

"It was a good hotel"

6.4/7
Posted 8 months ago

It was a good hotel. The hotel was located in the city. The location of the hotel was good. There was no delay in check in and checkout process. The behaviour of the staff’s was friendly in the hotel. The room was good in the hotel. The washroom was maintained well in the hotel. All amenities were provided in the room. The complimentary breakfast was given by the hotel. The activity was not arranged by the hotel. I would suggest this hotel to arrange restaurant. I had visited this hotel with my family.

"Good"

5.8/7
Posted 9 months ago

The overall of this hotel is very good, the view is awsum, the food is delicious, once you are in hills you feel hungry every time so this worth it, the bone fire are its main attraction. Spending time with family is the best option you have it in here. The atmosphere and the climates are so fresh you feel not coming home from there.

"A charming Tibetan homestay with wonderful staff!"

5.9/7
Posted 10 months ago

The homestay is located on Gandhi Road which is around 5-10 mins walk from the Mall Road/Chowrasta, on a straight gradient. Due to peak season, we got two rooms on the top most (4th) floor (no views rooms). Note that, they don't have a lift, so it was a quite some climb upstairs. However, the staff were very helpful and they helped us with our luggage. The rooms were neat and clean, with hot water available throughout. The homestay does not have a restaurant. But they have a kitchen arrangement and serve breakfast, which was good. The breakfast was served in the 3rd floor, which was exquisitely decorated in Tibetan style. And this rooms offers you the amazing view of the Mount Kangchenjunga! You can also stroll to their roof top, and from there too you can have the view of the majestic mountains. They also have a lounge area beside their reception. This room has some good collection of magazines and novels, and also offers free WiFi. They can arrange for sightseeing Tours, but I found it was cheaper to have it arranged from the local taxi stand, which is just near the mouth of the Mall road. And the best experience for me was that during check-out, they presented each one of us with a (Tibetan Buddhist white scarf) and wished us for a good journey! Such thoughtfulness !!

"Excellent experience & value for money"

5.1/7
Posted 1 year ago

Staying at the Snowlion was such a lovely experience in the hills of Darjeeling. Conveniently located in the heart of town but away from the taxi stand, we were treated so well by the awesome team of Snowlion. Right from breakfast in their top floor breakfast area to the hot water bottles in the night. We stayed in Feb so that warmed us up inside the covers. Room heater was also provided for. Linen was clean and service was good. There is a hot water geyser in the bathroom and towels were always fresh. If anything was needed, a quick ring to the reception was all that was to be done. Overall, a wonderful and satisfying experience.

"Nice hotel for successful memorable stay "

6.0/7
Posted 1 year ago

We had a great experience staying at that hotel, the rooms were spacious, food was good, great customer service, and nice view from the hotel point. There are many hotels where i stayed, but this was one of the best hotels. I like the variety of food they provide, which were tasty and delicious. The area where we stayed, was pleasant and nice with the mountains around, that moment i cherish for life because of the hotel. We were not much tried after a whole day of sight seeing. Overall i give 4 star rating to the hotel, and it made our tour successful, and an awesome experience, i recommend that hotel.

"Mr Gailly runs a warm, clean and cosy little prope..."

6.1/7
Posted 8 years ago

Mr Gailly runs a warm, clean and cosy little property which is very centrally located in Darjeeling. With a small but friendly staff, he ensures you have a nice, peaceful holiday at a very affordable cost. Would highly recommend this to anyone going with their family for a quiet holiday in charming Darjeeling.

"Recommendable to experience a family atmosphere"

7.0/7
Posted 3 years ago

It has been a delightful stay at the hotel. The people and the staff were excellent with the homely touch, food was acceptable as one can expect away from home. Cleanliness was outstanding; perhaps the grooming of rooms was unbelievable, family too warm to make one feel like being at home. The owner is very enterprising and passionate about his family business, which is this hotel upkeep and recommended for people, families who want a family atmosphere and the delight of soft caring people around.
