Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2016

I visited The Retreat from May 4th 2016 till May 7th 2016 with my wife. I had booked an executive room facing the Hills.
It was truly a memorable stay. The Room was Good, Staff were Very Good and Mr Sarkar , the ever helpful . ever smiling incharge was Excellent.

The view from the room was captivating. I plan to visit Darjeeling again later this year and my stay will only be The Retreat.

A highly recommended place to stay in Darjeeling.

Room Tip: Book an Executive room for the best view

An amazing ambience is experienced, by one who's had a stay at The Retreat. Located right beside the Raj Bhavan, the hotel is just down a flight of steps. The atmosphere around was just like at home The view from amidst the patio is just breathtaking,from which the marvelous Kanchenjunga is clearly visible. On a bright, sunny day, one might find oneself staring at the beautiful Himalayan range.
The staff made us feel just like at home, with warm welcome and friendly approach. Food here was good and really delicious . The taste was very much similar to what I cook at home myself. A must visit mid range hotel in Darjeeling !

I am so late to review this hotel, though I was a returning customer of The Retreat.
This time stayed in their best view room... probably it was 101.
Cozy room, outstanding room view made my family trip memorable. Add on was hospitality of Mr. D.P. Sircar ( manager ). Location of the hotel was easy to find. Just behind Raj Bhavan and in same row of some more named hotels. Short walk to Mall but quite tranquil. Food was good, child friendly staff and responsive behavior made our stay homely. Room price are worth it's standard but you may get discounted rate if visited before April( as per my experience ).

Room Tip: Ask for view room.
