I and my wife had a trip to Darjeeling last week, and the stay at Darjeeling Tourist Lodge was most pleasant stays there. The rooms were very clean, staffs were very cooperating, and comparatively, the cost was much lesser in comparison with similar quality and facilities (3star accommodations). The food was awesome, however you may be a fan of Kev's...

Traveled with a family of 6 in May 2015.. Pros: Location, Safety, Amazing view of Kanchanjanga from balcony of your room, homely food. Cons: Old property, Urgent upgradation required in basic amenities, Typical govt property, Slow/Very slow service if at all, very limited food options available, unfriendly front office, costly rooms for what you get. Although, location and views can...

This hotel is under WBTDC. You can book through online. The view from hotel lawn...its amazing. You can see full range of Kanchenjungafrom the lawn. Its nearly 650 mt from mal. Annex building are not hill facing. Hill facing rooms are too expensive but nice view from full wall glass window.

Due to state running facility we booked it only for one night but just one night stay proved me wrong. The best place to stay with spacious room. Great service and very cooperative staff. Mall road just walk away. Very scenic view from room. I'll surly recommend the place for future stay.

I stayed here for one day 17th Nov - 18th Nov in the main building. I stayed in Room No 9 on first floor.The vintage looks of the place adds to the charm. The rooms were comfortable with double blankets and a heater. The attached balcony had a great view overlooking the garden and had comfy seating as well. The...

This is perhaps the best location for a peaceful stay in Darjeeling with basic facilities at reasonable price. You cannot get a hotel of similar ambience at this rate in the entire Darjeeling. It is a drive in hotel 5-6 minutes walking distance from the mall, yet you will get a feeling that you are in a very quiet location....

Maintained very badly. Room price is also very heigh. Very old furniture and shabby towel and bedsheets we have got during our visit. Staffs are very friendly food is average. You can see nice sunrise over Katchenjanga from your rooms(in main building only) Location is also good(Just few minutes walk from mall).

Very good food quality , nice views . Love it. Food tastes really good. Nice hot food. Just very nice. I would have rated five stars if room and toilet were really nice. It is not good as I thought. But manageable. Manageable prices of food. Good Service.

This government owned hotel is what is perceived to be prime land at Darjeeling - close to the mall. Timed, the mall is a good 8 minute walk, close to 0.5 km away to the northern edge of the mall. If you are physically challenged and think that this is the best place close by to the mall, it might...
