This hotel has been very satisfactory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love the duvets - beds very comfy. We could have a spectacular view of the valley if the mist would lift but it might be the wrong season - April 18 & 19. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and recommended in guidebooks. Service has been good. I hadn't realized that Sikkim is making lots of efforts to be green and I appreciate that a lot.

... attraction for the British during colonial times and for us alike. Darjeeling was seen as a place to escape the balmy temeparutres of Kolkata and the surrounding plains and a place where famous tea could be grown and consumed in vast qauntities, perfect for the British.
The journey up to Darjeeling was about three hours with windy narrow roads up the foot hills of the himalayan range. Our taxi driver seemed like a nice fellow, he didnt talk much, but that ...
... We were on a quite road, high up a hill in Darjeeling at 10.30 at night. Not ideal! To add to our problems the shop owner next door set a fire outside her shop, we had noticed this being a common thing to do. However, the fire was loaded with plastic and it began to choke us....how to make a bad situation worse?! We, well I was obviously making enough fuss about the situation that a hotel resident came to the front door. We passed our ...
