No activity but good hotel 


I had been to this hotel in the month of June 2016. The location and destination of the hotel was good. The appearance of the hotel was good in look both internally and externally. The check in and check out was done on time. The service of the staff in the hotel was friendly and helpful. I ate food in the hotel and it was good. There were no activities organized in the hotel. I will recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

Very Good


The overall service was nice in the hotel. I taste food from this hotel. The activity was not conducted by the hotel. The hotel was located nearby the city. The response was quick in the hotel. AC was not available in the room. I don't have any suggestion for the improvement of the hotel.

A great place to lodge in a hill station


I stayed here with friends for a couple of days. It has a great view of the mountains. There is a nice eatery close by, called Tom and Jerry with a very nice host. The host at the lodge too was helpful, arranged a taxi so that we could go see Kanchenjunga and Everest. It's situated not far from many attractions, like the main town square and the zoo, a Buddhist temple and what not. If you like walking, it's great for that too.

Superb hotel facility


Wonderful experience at Darjeeling, hotel Golden Orchid. The rooms are very comfortable and big for accommodation and big LED telivision also there. The WiFi system was also very good. Mr. S. Tamang the manger is a nice human being and nice to us. House keeping was very good. Restaurant and Bar facility was also there. Ring the telephone no of Mr. Tamang and get a nice weekend at the Hotel.

Good place to stay


Our stay at Darjeeling in December 2015 was really a memorable tour for us & it was made possible by Golden Orchid. The whole day's trip in & around Darjeeling was tiring but coming back to Golden Orchid in the evening where you get a good cup of tea & cosy room to relax is really praise worthy. There is 24 hours running hot water in the bathroom & the room service is also very good.

A nice place to stay


Great place to stay, the owner is a cool guy who helps you out with a lot of things, very understanding person too. The sitting area is a great place to meet new people and listen to their amazing stories of travelling in and around Darjeeling. The only thing is that they don't serve food there and for that we need to go out but I guess he planning to start a pantry just for this.

More than value for money


Visited Darjeeling and sikkim in nov 15 with my wife. We hired an enfield from adventures unlimited. We traced Darjeeling and south, west sikkim and gangton. K on chrome 500, Gautam, the owner of adventures unlimited, is a very nice guy. On our enquiry about a good budget hotel he suggested us to try golden orchid, which was near his garrage and cafe. Hotel is at 3-4 minute walking distance from the mall area . Hotel was nicely maintained with good color schemes and lighting and beautiful furnitures. The manager showed us 2-3 rooms. We selected one adjoining their restraint like place. (Restraint was yet to be started. That place is nicely decorated with good looking furnitures. And soothing music) tarrif was very reasonable. We did not imagined to get such a place in 700 bucks . We were the only Indians staying there. Many foreigners were staying there . Room was neat and clean. Washroom was small but clean and equipped with geyser with 24 hrs supply of hot and cold water. LCD TV was also provided but with below average quality of cable operator (but who goes Darjeeling to view TV) . Manager there is a nice person. He manages hotel well with limited no of staff . Drinking water is not provided in the room but at night when we required it, manager gave us pure drinking water in his bottle . Proved a good choice as we wanted to spend more on travelling, food and shopping and less on our stay . Thanks gautam for a memorable tour .

The food was very good in the hotel


The staff were wellhead in the hotel. The food was very good in the hotel. There was no activity arranged by the hotel. There was all the facility provided in the room in working condition. The provided room was very good and clean at the hotel. The check in and check-out service was done on time at the hotel. The best part of the hotel was the staff behaviour.
