One of the best hotels to stay

Posted 17 Apr, 2012

One of the best hotels to stay with families/ single/ groups. The hotel is in the center of the town and close to tourist office and other shops. Situated in height, hence the outside views are even more beautiful. The best part of this hotel is the breathtaking view of the beautiful Kanchanjunga Mountains. All the rooms have nice balconies which has a wonderful view of the mountains and the valley. The Hotel has no covered parking but has space to park about six cars, just in front of its entrance. We were even given a good discount on room rate. As such hotel is not very expensive and value for money. The rooms are not posh looking but neat and clean with all the comforts. We never had any problem with hot water or any repairs.

Posted 20 Mar, 2011

The Hotel, situated in the lap of nature, has a charm to stay in the silence of sky , wind and picturesque great Himalayas.Every room has the pride to have look of depth and curves of the Himalayas from bed itself.The Lady Owner keeps touch on every comfort of inmates,barring the attendants and Hotel-boys.The magestic lobby painted with Buddhist scripts and sculptures will invariably draw you near to the God,specially when chants from soundbox is played in low and rhythmatic voice.At the end food will energise one to come to the Hotel again

We went to Gangtok April 2017. It was a family trip. We booked this hotel through online in Make my trip website. The destination was a good place.

Supportive staff; Beautiful room

Posted 8 Dec, 2014

The hotel was conveniently located and it takes thirty to thirty five minutes from bus stop. The staff at the hotel were polite and supportive. The appearance of the hotel and surrounding was very good. The room was spacious and clean with all the amenities at good condition. There was beautiful view from the room. The food at the hotel was good and they maintain quality and I tasted only non-veg. I did not face any delay during check-in and check-out. I visited with my friends and it was adventure trip in month of May. There were no activities and sightseeing trip organized by the hotel. The money spent on the hotel was reasonable. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers.
