Our first day on a week long girls trip started in this gorgeous wooden old heritage hotel. It smelled of wood and carpets, the walls carried a lot of collectibles, the furniture looked and felt like it was cared for for centuries. The hotel overlooked a gorgeous view of the valley and hills. The rooms were huge and were furnished...

I went to Kurseong with least expectations and no biased imagination of the place. Cochrane Place stoned me with its stark beauty of the preserved antiquity and the warm hospitality of the staff and the Hosts, Mr & Mrs Arora. The place is a value for money and offers unique ambiance of the British times. The Chai Country by itself...

We stoped over in Kurseong on our way to Darjeeling. We enjoyed the place very much, as it has a lot of character and brings you back to the good old times.

Coming up from the Bengal place to refreshing Kurseong is a great experience, and this hotel makes a great end of a long day. Authentic heritage atmosphere, friendly people, good food, a beautiful mountain view garden, peaceful and green tea garden environment. I really enjoyed this place!

Staff completely missed the 'customer service' point at every turn. Rooms OK but overpriced. Simple touches such as turning heating on (I was wearing down jacket in the room), explaining meal system would have been welcome. Constantly felt the staff were not on customer's side, right down to the overpriced taxi they organized. Very difficult to enjoy the serenity and...

Cocrane Place is quaint historic hotel with friendly staff and excellent service. I visited in November and sat on the balcony gazing at a star filled sky while house lights twinkles on distant hills. Live music was provided during dinner.
