Cosily perched on the slopes of the Kalimpong hills , a short stay in this re'treat' is a 'treat' by itself . Beautiful , clean and well appointed rooms with windows opening out to the view of the majestic Mt.Kanchanjhangea in all its snow capped glory glistenning under the first rays of the dawn . The refreshing flora of the...

I stayed overnight in this hotel. Since I wanted to work and required internet connection I chose the room next to the reception. It doesn't have the valley view but then you need to let go something for the larger interest. (The rooms do not have WIFI access its only in the lobby that one can access WIFI.) When I...

Very Good Located Mountain views hotel. Nice location, Good rooms but not clean and no heater in rooms. Food quality and staff behavior are not good. Plus point only Mountain views and seating arrangement outside the room. No internet in rooms or even garden area! only they offer internet in hotel lobby.

I liked my stay at Soods Garden Retreat specially the room and the view. Not too fond of the food here but a great quiet location just before the town in Kalimpong. One can easily walk downt o the market place and request cab details at the reception for sight seeing. Friendly staff.

Soods Garden retreat is a small hotel a short distance outside the town of Kalimpong. It as a high and deserved reputation for it's very tasty Indian food cooked by a chef who has been there for very many years. Many rooms have excellent views of Kanchenjunga but this is often clouded over except in the early morning

We stayed in this property for 2 days. Situated on the main road, it is easy accessible. It has a beautiful garden on the back side. The restaurant services very good Indian food. The rooms are very spacious for us ( 2 adults+1child). Front desk was very attentive and attended to us immediately whenever the occasion rose.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
8.5 Miles is where you will find us, just 800 meters before the hustle and bustle of the market area set amidst nature with a breathtaking view, on the sunniest part of the hills. For whatever you have in mind you can't be better located. Near to all the site seeing interests. Laze on the rolling lawns or just admire the glory of the mighty Mt. Kanchenjunga from the restaurant, balconies or lawns. Let the children get naughty on the outdoor play area, swings and slides. ... more   less
