A beautiful stay. It is a small hotel with only 20 rooms. The whole hotel has a classic feel. Takes you to British era. The lawn is big and has beautiful sitouts. We loved the stay. Staff is helpful and courteous.

The hotel is located on a busy road but once you enter the gate of the hotel the serenity and peace prevail. The old world charm exudes on the undulated gardens, the sit outs, the corridors, reception and bar areas, dining hall, the staircase and the rooms on the first floor! Rooms are well appointed and a visual experience of...

Very comfortable, beautiful rooms, welcoming staff, sitting room with view of garden, small bar, elegant dining room, outside cosy resting spots that are good to meet with people. It was a pleasure to stay. An early morning a walk up the hill to see the mountains is a good thing to do.

After a very scenic journey from Tumsong, we reached an equally scenic Elgin Kalimpong. Our first impression was wonderful with a view of the mountains and a beautifully landscaped garden We had booked 4 rooms and unfortunately none of them had the awesome view, so the first let down started here. One room even had a bad smell, and when...

This hotel has charm, but just misses finesse. The staff are good, but some could be better with training, dinner was good, but dining at 9pm the buffet looked a bit like left overs. Just misses out on the style and execution of its sister hotels. We did however enjoy our stay. Thank you

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more   less
