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.

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.

We enjoyed so much here even my wife and children.
