WelcomHeritage Windamere hotel is really one among the good hotels situated near Observatory Hill, Darjeeling. Here, you will get all necessary item like a home. You never get bored here. The hotel provides better spacey rooms with fully Air conditioned. In addition, the facility of tea and coffee inside the room will really makes your mood up.

Beside that, the well-mannered staff's and it's kind behaviour will really makes feel relax. Apart from that, the eye catchy outside environment will really make you fan of this place. It's location is so fabulous that, it seems you are speaking directly to nature. So, friends if you are planning visit Darjeeling then, you should make your resort point at WelcomHeritage Windamere Hotel.

A wonderful place to be, at any time of the year! The hotel has kept the Raj etiquette and culture intact and at times, this is a pleasant change from the mundane, plastic politeness displayed by most staff in other hotels.

The food is out of this world. The rooms are yearning out to you, to say- come and enjoy your stay with us!

There is also a museum of sorts where the Royalty and the Celebrities have recorded their presence and you can relish their comments with your own added! The only negative about this hotel is that a view of e Kanchenjungha is about 200 feet away! You have to walk out this distance to see the abode of the Gods.

Darjeeling is often called a Queen of the hills, an exotic place to revisit beauty of nature. One of my favourite destination all over India. Just to escape city crowd we planned a trip for Darjeeling and for stay we opted for "Windamere Hotel", the experience was quite nice. Location was quite exotic as it was situated on a observatory hill, we can overlook all the surrounding neighbouring countries. Rooms were quite clean with all the amenities and good staff support. Food was also good as expected covering both Indian and Continental cuisine. We visited Tiger Hill, zoo, a monastery and various other locations, latter we proceeded for our trip to Gangtok. In short this hotel is very good if you want to experience exotic Indian hospitality.

This is a wonderfully rustic feel about the hotel, right down to the dust! :D Though if you discount a few cobwebs here and there, it is a great place to stay. If you like laid-back vacations, this is the place to be! Service is not exactly prompt, but you've got to adjust to the time here. Relax and let the vacation happen to you, and it will. The food is good, solid Continental stuff, with great breakfast options. The staff will happily point you towards local attractions too.

It was nice experience to stay at Welcome Heritage at Darjeeling. We enjoyed the stay, food and services. We enjoyed weather of Darjeeling. It was very nice sunrise view. We enjoyed shiny golden Everest mountain view. Walking on a streets of Darjeeling adds romantic flavours in our heart.

I had visited this Hotel in Darjeeling during Holidays in 2013 with the family. We were escorted by the Hotel staff to reach the Hotel comfortably. The front office was very impressive. The stay was very pleasant. They had provided excellent food. Getting a Bengali food in Darjeeling was very impressive and commendable. The rooms were spacious, neat and clean. The view from the room was good. The room amenities were average as the geyser had stopped functioning for one day, but the staffs were extremely cooperative in fulfilling our needs.

It has a very poor hospitality and they charged 1500/- and above. The hotel location was good and I went with my friends. They did not provide hot water and there was no service available. It was a family trip and the rooms were okay but water facilities were not there. We had our food outside and there were no activities available. We went in the month of April 2013.

It was really fun at Windamere. The staff were helpful and the room service was awesome. I would specially like to mention about the steam bath I have taken. The view from my room window was great. Overall, a good experience.

Nice hotel ambience was fine, everything was upto the mark. Hotel staff were cordial, food was good though the charges were on higher side. But the location was awful with such expense hotel needed to provide good view.

WelcomHeritage Windamere Hotel Overview

The Welcome Heritage Windermere Hotel has its own legacy as one of the finest Colonial properties in India. It had the #3 position in the listing by the ‘The Asia Pacific National Geographic Passport Magazine’ for ‘Top Ten Colonial Hotels in the Asia Pacific’. This budget hotel dates back to the early 1800s, to the time of the British Raj and this property was occupied with boarding houses for British planters.

This 40-room property has rooms nestled in flowering gardens and retains the same old world charm with large beds, fireplaces, big closets and the same customary service of the erstwhile era. The food in this 2-star hotel is legendary, with both Indian and continental menus and dinnertime the dining area transforms itself to a wonderful candle-lit space serving the best treats. The hotel has several venues for conferences and the Itati spa for total rejuvenation.
