I visited Sterling Darjiling for a period of 5 days and had a wonderful time there.Staff was very courteous and helpful, particularly Mr Kaushik and Mr Pemba.The weather keeps on changing, fog and mist giving way to sunshine.Enjoyed every moment and i will cherish these moments for long time to come.

Stayed at this hotel with my family and totally loved it. Thank you guys for making my family holiday fantabulous. Less commercialised than Darjeeling, very romantic and peaceful place. The dining area is stunning with clear view of Kanchenjunga. We will come back for it.
