    Happy Days at Swiss Hotel

    Hotel is located at a walking distance from Gleneries, Kaventer, The Mall and centre of Darjeeling.
    Its cottages are nicely kept and heritage building is still aristocratic. Services was up to a standard and the assistant manager was the man Friday of all guests. Food is nice with scope to improve furhter.
    The lawn is very well kept and Kanchenjunga is visible from the lawn when sky is clear. Overall, our stay was a happy stay.

    Swiss Hotel Revisited

    Reviewed May 17, 2011

    Swiss Hotel is a heritage hotel of early Raj era. I like it as its ambiance is fine. It has very comfortable rooms and cottages. Lawn is good but could be better with proper horticultural activity.
    Present visit made me wonder why the owners are oblivious of poor managerial skill to keep a heritage property real heritage. I am sure the Swiss couples paid close attention to house-keeping. It is lacking now. Drinking water is supplied in tiny flask and one flask for one room though two occupy the room. Every half an hour one has to call up attendant to get water in room.
    Manager is mostly invisible and when you meet him, he explains how busy he was in taking tourists to Manebhanjan or any such place. The hotel is generally left in care of Mr. Sudarshan, a hard working young with limitations.
    It is in quagmire and needs tough discipline to get it back in rail. We have run Air Force Messes which are like 4-star hotels and better than many clubs of Kolkata, We can straighten it in no time to make the Swiss couple lie in graves peacefully,

    So, the punchline to the joke goes something like this....We weren't able to fix your brakes, but we made your horn twice as loud! That pretty much describes everywhere I've been in India thus far. Squeaking brakes and blaring horns.

    The buildings appear to be between 100 to 200 years old and no one has bothered with a broom or a mop since that time. Even the national museum in Kolkata could do with ...

    ... tea. Much to my dismay, it seemed like yesterday’s brief stroll down to a tea plantation was about all we were going to get in the way of “tea tourism”. According to our guide, the season was over and that, was the end of the story. Under extensive questioning from Laine (thanks mum!) he admitted that we might possibly be able to visit a tea-plantation though we’d have to forgo the pleasure of (another) rambling stroll through town in ...

    ... than good seeing as I have not had pork in far to long. They also did beef cutlets which we had for lunch one day and were incredible disappointing! The mixed grill came out on a hot plate carried high as it was all sizzling and crackling so had a nice bit of drama added to it as everyone watched it come across the restaurant to your table.  The next day  Finally day one trekking. We met at the office and went through some things like forms that say if we die our parents get ...

    ... hillside at a cracking good speed; taking all sorts of secret shortcuts. I only became a little conserned the first time I lost sight of my regular mounts. But some roads are just for us bears.

    Before I knew it, we'd slipped into Nepal. The change in culture was plain as the fur on my face: here, nestled in the hills, was a full on Tibetan temple, complete with prayer wheels and multicoloured flags briskly flapping in the wind. I really must get myself a more colourful ...

    ... aber problemlos und wir haben Zeit um am nächsten Tag nach Darjeeling zu fahren und die berühmte Eisenbahn an zu schauen. Leider ist es auf über 2200 Meter ziemlich kalt und zeitweise regnet es auch. Nach über 100 Tagen ist dies der erste Regen den ich habe und die tiefste Temperatur.

    Dann sehe ich, wie ein Dampfzug in den engen Strassen, gleich neben Gemüseladen und Strasse, auftaucht. Wir machen einige Fotos und müssen danach ...
