Hotel Retreat in Darjeeling is my seen best view hotel. I have been to Darjeeling many times, but visit to the Hotel Retreat is the very best till now. But one thing I would like to mention , its much much more best if you stay in the Royal delux room (the room 411) beside the reception.
Its the the best. The room is large , nice big bathroom, and most important the covered glass large varandah, from where you would be able to see the mighty kanchanjhunga total ranges with other peaks also on one side and on the other side the sunrise from tiger hill, you no need to go to tiger hill to see the sunrise, you would be to see it from your room only given that the weather is clear and your luck is good. As of my luck , i was very very lucky in that matter. Its costly also but if you see all those peaks and sunrise, cost is very very reasonable..
The other rooms are also good and you would be able to see the mountain peaks. The rooms are neat and clean. The position of the hotel is also very good a little away from bustling and busy Mall market area.
Manager Mr. Sarcar is also very helpfull and nice person and try to give best services.
Overall i enjoyed very much.
