Heritage Guest House, worth the stay

Posted 15 Jun, 2016

It was the Guest House and part of Windamere Hotel converted into heritage hotel, which boast of some very famous personalities staying in the property in the past which included Vivian Leigh, Charles Everest among others. Great Room and hospitality and wonderful staff. Conveniently located. I would strongly recommended this property. The only thing that robbed it off the 5 star rating is the narrow spread it offers for breakfast.

Heritage hotel and satisfied with the stay

Posted 11 Jun, 2015

We stayed at Ivanhoe House for a couple of nights, before we headed to North Sikkim. The name Ivanhoe is derived from the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. All the rooms at Ivanhoe Hotel seemed to be spacious, but different from each other in terms of size, interiors & were named after the famous british officials who lived in them at some point of time. Apparently famous movie stars in the olden days had stayed here We loved our room, cozy with a nice fireplace. The hot water bottle was very welcome for the chilly winter nights. We had dinner a couple of times and the food was decent. The staff performance was very uneven and that was disappointing. They kept asking us what time we wanted breakfast but were never ready anyway, they were quite disorganized and kept forgetting food we ordered, kept turning off lights or water heaters etc Overall, pretty satisfied with the stay.

Average food and perfect service

Posted 2 Jun, 2014

Hotel is good. Location and appearance were okay. I faced no problem during check in and check out. Services were perfect. Food was average. Rooms were below average. Staff behavior was helpful and cooperative. There was no outdoor activity available. Darjeeling is a very nice place as tourist destination. I went there with my wife. It was a romantic trip.
