Glenburg is outside of Darjeeling in side a tea estate and that is a complete different but worth experience if budget is not an issue but not sure how would be during monsoon.
The time you are going would be peak of monsoon and chances of getting a grand view of kanchanjanga and other peaks are very low due to clouds.Edited: 30 June 2016, 19:43
As a local suggest you,if you are looking for view then check Ceder in.you will see the nice panorama view of kanchanjuna mountain including Darjeeling town view and some parts of Darjeeling hills.

Thanks a lot. Dont mind going off the grid and hence Glenburn. Budget is not an issue though but the rains is. wondering if its safe enough to travel to Glenburn in peak monsoon. Convenience of location is not a criterion. Not looking to do the typical touristy trail. Looking for a quiet place to soak in the ambience, the rains, the mountains. If Glenburn is not possible then Is between Mayfair and Windamere, what choice do I have. Read conflicting views that Mayfair has not so great views. Otherwise it looks great.
Have a look at Cedar Inn, as Karma says. Its got magnificent views and good food as well.
Thanks Karma, Thanks Brave1. Will take a look at Cedar inn as well.
Had you not planned a visit during peak monsoons and chosen Nov-Dec instead , I would have suggested only those hotels which are facing the Kanchenjungha and not the valley opposite . Elgin and Mayfair, otherwise excellent properties do not offer Kanchenjungha views. However during monsoons, you can choose any one of these(and Cedar Inn too)-- all nice comfortable properties.
Thanks a lot for the suggestions. Realized, its better to postpone my visit by 2 months to september end. Thanks a lot again.
