Average Hotel.

Posted 20 Oct, 2016

I and my wife stayed in this hotel from 17 to 19 October, 2016. Maintenance of hotel is poor. Staff are average. Food service is not available in the hotel. Hotel is near to mall. Rooms are all mountain view facing. Budget hotel. Cleanliness can make this hotel good in future.

Food it tasty, its in the top of the mall so you don't need to climb the stiff mall road every time, The hotel is in the middle of the market you can grab shopping bags of your wife, it wont feel you stress or heavy, the view from the dinning hall is awesome, you can get the kanchanjanga view clear if you are lucky for climate. Its a budgeted hotel and very decent.

Nice hotel and staff

Posted 29 Feb, 2016

The hotel location was very nice. There was no 24x7 hot water in the room but hotel staff make it available for you anytime whenever you want. I loved this place a lot as they were not expensive. There was lots of food place around the place. There was very good mall next to this hotel. This is well connected to all road of the city. Hotel room service was very nice. Room was big. Bathroom was big.

Good hotel to stay with good view

Posted 30 Oct, 2015

The location of the hotel is nearest to the mall, thus, it is acceptable for many people. The view of Kanchenjunga was very cute from hotel but service was quite poor, geyser was not available for 24 hours, the rooms are also average but, caretakers were helpful. It's amazing due to its position, nearest to the mall.

Good Hotel with nice welcome but small rooms

Posted 15 Oct, 2015

Hotel is quit good, we were welcomed warmly. We arrived there quite early but luckily that there was a room available. Unfortunately that the room and bed were smaller than the other hotels. So I give it 4 out of 7 stars. Otherwise all the facilities of the hotel at same is nice I would actually not prefer it my anybody, but if there is no hotel available at that time. This is a very good hotel in the surrounding.

Price of the food was reasonable

Posted 10 Aug, 2015

The overall experience at the hotel was okay. The hotel was conveniently located and I didn't have any difficulty to reach the hotel. The staff at the hotel were fine. I had no delay in check-in and check-out. The appearance of the hotel was average. The room assigned to me was okay. Mountain View was seen from my room. They used to clean the room on call only. Hot and cold water was provided all the time. I had taken the food from the hotel and it was fine. The price of the food was reasonable. The hotel had not provided the activities. The hotel had organized the sightseeing trip for me. The hotel was a bit expensive. It was a holiday tour with family. According to me the appearance of the hotel should be changed.

Average hotel; good food

Posted 31 Dec, 2014

Its was ok-ok, means not good and not bad too. It's cheap if you book at spot. If you book over net then they will charge high. Enjoy your tour with your family/friends and definitely you will get good hotels within. 5 km from Mall. Food is good and water you can buy from outside.

Hotel was located at a convenient place

Posted 1 Sep, 2014

Hotel was located at convenient place. Staff service was on time and they did friendly and cordial. Outside look of the hotel was old but interior was grand. Room was clean furnished and they did provide TV, geyser, bed, etc, and amenities were working properly. Beautiful view was visible from the room. About food facility in the hotel I am not sure but I had my food road side. I did not face any problem during check in and check out. I did not appear any activity in the hotel area. I managed myself sightseeing facility. I reached Lava place in October 2012 with my family. I belong from Kolkata city and my mother tongue is Bengali. I did book this hotel by my husband but I can recommend this hotel for my relative.

Ordinary place

Posted 8 Jan, 2013

A pretty ordinary hotel and nothing good to share. Only good thing is its location as there is always a beautiful view of the ranges. Very ordinary rooms and the services are okay. Nice place. I generally come to Darjeeling for tea festival.
