Probably one of the best located properties in Sikkim, Hotel Elgin is on a mountain top with 360 degree view of nature. It is a delight to witness sunrise on Mt. Kanchenjunga from the confines of well maintained terrace gardens. House keeping could be better as we felt during our stay though the senior staff was very prompt to respond...

I'm still in awe of this place. The best place to stay at Pelling and overall can easily feature among the best in India. The rooms, the decor, the bar, library, restaurant, food, staff everything was a pleasing experience. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back next year to enjoy the hospitality. Special thanks to Mr. Debabrata Mukherjee...

A very comfortable and well-kept hotel with great staff and a stupendous view - our only regret is that we had just one night there - another would have been perfect so we could have enjoyed tea in the beautifully kept gardens while admiring the view.

We went here as a part of our honeymoon. you will get a feeling of colonial times, of being treated so royally, it becomes an indelible memory. The best part is the breakfast- if you choose to sit outside, like, just outside the dining hall, you end up sitting on a natural balcony- sipping hot tea with the amazing buffet...

A wonderful property in Pelling that exceeds expectations on all counts. After a six hour arduous journey from Bagdogra, traversing a dilapidated highway, Elgin Mt Pandim, Pelling was what the doctor ordered. We had visited the property on 18th November'16 on our anniversary and the decision to stay at the Elgin Mt Pandim was probably the best we have ever...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once the summer retreat of the royal family of Sikkim, this Heritage property is now a luxury boutique hotel. Each bedroom in the hotel offers magnificent views of the snow capped mountains and peaks; a unique and personal tryst with the Himalayas. Set in eight acres of virgin forest and landscaped gardens, it invokes the old charm of its first owners - the royal family of Sikkim - and offers a peaceful retreat with a glorious view of the Singalila range. The 300 year old Pemayangtse monastery is right next to the resort on a verdant hill top covered by moist temperate Oak forests. ... more   less
