We have stayed at Gurudongma House on several occasions and have never once been disappointed with any aspect.. The rooms are very well appointed and it is fun to wake early to see the magnificant view of the mountains. The food that is prepared by Cathy is always wonderful, with a great range of interesting flavours and textures. To eat...

On our way from Hee Bemiok to Samthar Farmhouse, we stopped here to have our lunch, which was pre-organised by Mr. J Singh. We reached there by 12 noon, were enchanted by the secluded beauty of the place. We took rest there for sometime, had our lunch prepared by Ms. Catherine at the garden of Gurudongma House. The food was...

Our driver could not find the right way, so we took the wrong one, horrible and rough path but finally we arrive. Make sure you find the right road and one suggestion: Signs on the way should help the disoriented driver. The place is absolutely fantastic. Jimmy Singh was not here but we were greeted warmly by Madame Katherine and...

We were a large group, but Catherine and team were able to accommodate us according to our needs. Catherine was an excellent hostess, and her meals were very tasty and unique. She was happy to share some recipes with us! Gurudongma House is a very friendly and welcoming environment with plenty of pleasant places to socialise in the garden, over...

What a lovely couple of days we had here when we first reached West Bengal! Catherine and her staff (including young Ron) did their utmost to make sure we had a great time. Our suite of rooms was lovely, the bed was comfortable and the views to the Himalayas were fantastic. When the weather was clear, Catherine woke us early...

As the name suggests, Gurudongma House is not a hotel, it's a home, and very soon feels like a 'second home' in Kalimpong. It's up the hill to the south of the main town and bazaar in a pleasant, peaceful setting with a well-kept, delightful and interesting garden. We were welcomed with tea and home-made cakes in the charming main...

After finding our way to this lovely B&B hidden away on hill top since our driver did not know the way and the sign was difficult to see from a certain angle in the road.

The location is perfect for exploring Kalimpong. We went to the market in Kalimpong, which was out of this world. The owners of the house are really inspiring. The income from the house is used to support a school in Samthar (where there is another amazing farm house - Samthar Farm House - where guests can stay in a remote...
