18 H.D Lama Road, Darjeeling, West Bengal, India
"The Elgin Darjeeling is THE BEST resort to spend your vacation in if you want to go to a second home rather than a hotel. Once you enter the hotel, you would want to stay there forever. The lounge is filled with artworks and curios which gives the place an ambience that cannot be described in words. The staff is proficient, caring and respectful in each and every way led by the ***ager Mr. Badal Majumdar, who was very helpful during a certain sudden emergency which befell us during our stay. The rooms are cozy and clean. Keeping the pandemic in mind the rooms are well sanitised as well. Running hot water is always on the tap. Room service is exceptional. Restaurant is immaculate with excellent quality food. We also had the honour to meet the owners of this hotel Mr. Brij Raj Oberoi and his lovely wife Mrs Nimmi Oberoi. They are the main reason why The Elgin Darjeeling, is the way it is for so ***y years. Mr. Diamond Oberoi and Mrs. Nimmi Oberoi are not hoteliers, they are artists... Who are extremely passionate and caring about all their hotels. As his name suggests Mr. Oberoi is an absolute Gem of a person to be acquainted with. Having a cup of tea and a conversation with the Dynamic Duo was probably one of the best parts of my vacation. Finally my review cannot end without mentioning 'Casper' , the very lovable and playful lab who greets you on your arrival to this hotel. An absolute powerhouse. He's so adorable that you will definitely miss him once you leave. Book your stay with them if you want a true heritage experience for the right value for money."
"Stayed at this lavish property of Darjeeling which is renowned as a heritage hotel here. Located extremely close to Darjeeling Mall this place gives the best access to the main part of Darjeeling, which connects various restaurants, tea stores and other shops. Coming to this place, we stayed at the Deluxe rooms which were quite big and comfortable with all the facilities. I quite loved the vintage decors they have put to use. Coming to the hotel they have a big lawn for private parties, a common room with some board games, an in-house restaurant for buffet and a la carte, spa section, glass house, and a common outer sitting area for smoking and to get a beautiful view of cityscape during night. Definitely you get what you pay here from hospitality of staff to top-notch facitilies and good food. For a lavish and comfortable stay this place is your go-to-go option."
"Starting from the very entrance the hotel is an epitome of beauty. The interiors were quaint and gorgeous, rather well beyond what can be described in words. I still remember the cookies and coffee we had at check in itself. The check in was quite smooth. The groundfloor room was bit congested as an extra bed had to be accommodated, may be the authorities can consider providing a bigger room in such cases; still we loved the room and the bathroom too was sparkling clean. The breakfast experience was good; food, not exceptional, but good enough. You can borrow books from the library and spend quality time reading them at the cosy lounge or the porch. The location of the hotel is perfect for covering the main locations in Darjeeling town; few minutes walk and take a turn, you reach the mall. Overall I definitely recommend this hotel and will go back again and again."
