I visited Kalimpong in the month of December 2016. This was a business trip. I booked my stay through online via Yatra.com. The location of the hotel was very good but it was far away from the city. The hotel ambiance was good. The hospitality service was good. The staff was friendly and cooperative. Room was hygienic and clean. The food was very nice. I have ordered chilly baby corn and it was tasty. Complimentary breakfast was available. Extra activities were not available. Wifi facility available and it was free. Pick and drop facility was not available. Overall experience was good. I would suggest this hotel to others.

On my business trip I visited Kalimpong. I went there along with my colleague in the month of May 2017. I booked it online. The location of the hotel was easy to access. The market was just a walkable distance. The appearance of the hotel was at the starting point of the Valley. The surroundings of the hotel were attractive. The front office staff was cooperative and they have arranged the doctor at the time of requirement. The service of the hotel was on time. We have booked the standard room and the room was well maintained. They do have their own restaurant on the rough floor. It was scenic as there was a Valley. The Non Vegetarian foods were delicious and served hot. They do arrange the cab for the sightseeing on our request.

On my honeymoon trip I visited Kalimpong. I went there along with my wife in the month of May 2017. We booked the room through a travel agent who in booked online from Goibibo portal. We had good experience in the hotel. We liked all aspects of the hotel. I even filled feedback form. We reached the hotel by taxi. There is no travel desk like pickup and drop facility. But they said cab arrangements will be done. The Front office staff was responding well. They handled us very well. They welcomed and treated us well. The service of the hotel was prompt. Whenever we called them they would serve on time. The location of the hotel was well placed. There are sightseeing places. It is easy to reach and it is convenient. The appearance of the hotel was superb. There is the garden at night time we can sit there and enjoy the place. The room was well maintained. We booked super deluxe. We could see the view from the room. The bed was well kept. No power issues. Service was fine. The bathroom is neat and clean. We had food in the hotel. It was good and tasty. We were getting fast food. In the hotel we were getting normal kinds of food like Rava roti and sabzi. They gave restaurant and room service. There were no other activities. I did not notice about lift facility. I will suggest that the hotel should be maintained the same. I will recommend this hotel to others also.

Courteous Staff And Comfortable Stay

I visited Kalimpong in the month of April 2017. That was a family holiday trip. I booked my stay by direct booking. The room aspect was good but the bathroom was not clean and well maintained. There were no other activities. When I was going to the sightseeing then I asked suggestions so that was provided very nicely by the reception staff. Whatever I asked that was provided immediately. The food they were providing to the room was served hot. They were very courteous. The location was too far from the city. The private taxi was available all the time but that was not then its difficult to visit. I generally like the silent and natural places and that was very beautiful near the hotel. The morning breeze and the tree were very attractive for me. That we liked most in the location. The way they designed the room and there were no disturbances from other people. There was open balcony so that was very good in the morning time. The TV furniture lighting etc were very good. They had served local food like a Momo that was very tasty. I ordered Punjabi food That was prepared in a perfect way and very tasty. We had not faced problem in the food. They were given a variety of dishes in the breakfast. The service staff was helpful. The housekeeping staff was cleaning the room time to time. The travelers will not disappoint by staying in this hotel. They will honor the customer at the time of check-out by offering shall. The way of seeing off the customer was very good.

Nice hotel located in a good location, view from my room was really amazing. We enjoyed a great north indian vegetarian food in this era. Room service was also so much impressive. I want to visit again and again in Kalimpong as Hotel Soods Garden retreat. Thank you so much Soods Garden for making our new year celebration so fantastic. :-)

Best Hotel to relax & enjoy the beauty with family

6.4/7
Posted 13 Nov, 2015

The hotel is away from the hustle bustle of the small town, a short walk for 15/20 minutes from the market will land you in the hotel. You will enjoy the garden, the rooms, the service, the food and above all, the personalized care as you if are in your home and are being pampered by your parents. I first visited Sood's with my family that included a 3 year old daughter. The overall stay for 3 days made me fall in love with Kalimpong and Sood's. Excellent hotel with beautiful views, exceptional and personalized service, terrific food all under the guidance of the Hotel Owner Mr. Siddhant Sood, simply left my family and my little angel mesmerized. I visited Sood's the next year to attend a wedding, although we were provided accommodation by the wedding party, I had to opt for Sood's as I couldn't resist myself. I had to check into the hotel for 2 days. Nothing changed, it was as if I visited the same hotel within a short span of days not years. The restaurant service boys even remembered by my little angel and we received the same pamper. Now over the years, I have visited Sood's three years in a row and plan to keep this routine going till I am unable to visit the small hill town. If you want to relax for 3/4 days and want to be spoilt royally, then this is the place for you.
