We could not find any aspect of our stay wanting; from the warm reception on our arrival, to the lovely room, the excellent...

After the experience at Elgin Darjeeling, the experience at Kalimpong seemed to be a "step motherly" one. The quality of food and the professionalism of the staff seemed to have evaporated into space at Kalimpong. - From the evening the room service guys kept asking "Sir will you be having food in the room?" despite having told them more than...

Beautiful Old World Hotel in the heart of Kalimpong yet surprisingly quiet considering the location! The hotel has a beautiful dog that is very friendly and loves a good scratch behind the ears. All the food was amazing, you won't go hungry that's for sure very authentic Indian mountain food! Rooms were lovely and clean, with staff all very attentive

Elgin is that perfect blend of old world charm and modern luxury that takes one back to the past and yet does not take away any of the modern amenities that we are used to. Located right in the bazaar, yet once you step in, the view of the hills from the lawn takes you to a different world. Every...

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
