Had a great stay at Elgin Kalimpong. The corner room on the first floor opened to a great view. The hotel, like all Elgin properties, has modernity wrapped in old world charm. For us, breakfast and dinner was part of the package. But they offer a decent a la carte choice. We especially liked their mutton cutlets, needless to say...

A very nice property. However overly priced. The view from hotel is amazing.Staff could be a little more friendly.Also they could increase the choice of food in their restaurant. Kalimpong city as such is beautiful. You could visit a lot of places. Durpin, Delo and enjoy Para gliding.

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...

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
