Lovely location, great views across the valley. Wonderful welcome from very friendly staff. We had a lovely comfortable room with the great views. Lounge and bar were very comfortable and staff attentive. Restaurant lovely with good fires to keep off the chill. Would definitely visit again.

I have stayed here for one night. This hotel has very old carpets etc. Need some serious renovation and upgrade. Food was average and enough to feed. Not very tasty. Views and location is very nice. Loved my evening tea at sunset. Staff was helpful.

We stayed in this hotel for one night while traveling around North India. We wished we stayed longer! (Although we went on to another Elgin hotel in Darjeeling which was even better). The views from the garden are beautiful and the garden itself is really big-you could spend ages in it. The guard dog was lovely as well. Our room...

The Hotel is small but very well maintained & beautiful. The front office staff is very friendly and hospitable. They were kind enough to change our room on request. The rooms are big and comfortable. the hotel is walking distance from the main market. The only problem was the food, it wasn't all that great though. Overall a good place...

We had dropped in for lunch while on a day trip to Kalimpong. Since we intend to stay at Kalimpong during our next trip to the hills (this time we were put up at the Windamere in Darjeeling), we wanted to check out the rooms and the staff happily obliged. Every room has a quaint Victorian character, which we both...

We stayed at this hotel 12 years ago and were unimpressed by the service. Things have definitely changed for the better, and we could not fault any aspect of the hotel.

We stayed there for 2 nights from 24th to 26th December. Fabulous hotel. It's unique because it reminds of British regime. The rooms are very cozy with antique furnitures yet comfortable. The architecture of the hotel has colonial stamp all over. The lobby and the lounge of the hotel looks excellent. The hotel complex is having garden in several layers...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more   less
