"Enjoyment at the oldest yet most beautiful hotel"

7.0/7
Posted 12 months ago

Darjeeling is well known for magnificent Tea gardens and Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. I visited Darjeeling with my family for vacation and stayed at The Elgin Hotels & Resorts. Darjeeling can be reached both by road and rail but roadway is faster. Hotel is located in a beautiful surrounding and is one of the oldest hotels present there. The rooms offer splendid views of the mountains and valleys. The Elgin is within walking distance of the famous Darjeeling mall. They provide delicious food and the room service is world class. A well-stocked library, games room and children's activity centre and many opportunities for nature walks never puts you in boredom. It was my best experience with nature.

"Wonderful place to stay for couple & family"

5.9/7
Posted 7 months ago

Elgin is wonderful place to stay for couple and family. Last week, me and my wife visited Darjeeling and choose Elgin for our stay. It is wonderful place located in the mid of Darjeeling. Well-connected and good location with Mall Road, local market and Railway Station. I can share my point of view based on below keywords are: 1. ) Comfort - Most comfortable. Rate - 4 out of 5. Everything was available in the room. As the most chilling temperature, they specially provided hot water bags in bed to make more comfortable. 2. ) Ambiance - it gives you Heritage Royal experience. Well-maintained. Rate - 5 out of 5. 3. ) Staff - Well-mannered and supportive. Rate - 5 out of 5. Special thanks to front desk staff and Akshay Shetty (Available on Bar Counter). They help us to plan more better trip. Based on their feedback we added on Gangtok - Kalimpong. Front desk staff supported us very positively and blocked the room for us by offering great value for money. 4. ) Food - Food was good in taste and quality. But having less option in menu card. Rate - 3 out of 5 Might be possible we visited in off season so due to lack of staff member it will be not offered. 5. ) Recommendation - Surely, I recommend Elgin to my friends and family to experience good royal hospitality and ambiance. Thanks for wonderful experience. We will surely recommend this place for our stay in future. Special Thanks to Ms. Superna Biswas (Executive sales and reservations) - Thank you for your valuable support. You give us very positive favor for booking and reservation.

"Overall experience was excellent "

6.5/7
Posted 1 year ago

The hotel was conveniently located. The hotel was not difficult to find out. It was located within the city. The surrounding of the hotel was good. A shopping mall and temple was near by the hotel. The staff at the hotel were helpful and friendly. I was happy with the room allocated to me. There was no delay at check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel was modern and well maintained. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. The furnishings in the room were also neat and clean. The amenities were also working properly. I was able to see the Mountain View from my room. The room and the bathroom were regularly cleaned. Hot and cold water facility was provided all the time. The hotel had a very big area and a park. The services of the hotel were very good. I would like to recommend this hotel to everyone. Both veg and non veg food was served at the hotel. The food was good in quality. The price of the food was expensive. The hotel had provided the activities. The sightseeing trip was not organized by the hotel. The hotel was value for money. I don't have any suggestion for the hotel improvement. I had stayed there with my wife.
