We only stayed for one night at the Elgin on our return to Bagdogra airport from Gangtok. The hotel sits in an amazingly busy area of Kalimpong, yet it sits serene with grand views of the valleys and mountains. The staff was very courteous and our two rooms were luxuriously appointed. The entire hotel has been very tastefully decorated including...

In a quiet hillside location of Kalimpong, good access to local sights, though this was more of a transit stop for a flight the next day from Bagdogra. Converted old colonial house, with lots of old b&w photos of local history in the corridors, including some of Tagore, who apparently stayed here on many occasions. Very friendly and efficient check...

The British architecture takes you into a different world altogether along with the wonderful landscaping. The food and the service is excellent, it has a very different charm altogether. The rooms facing the garden are wonderful, the clouds almost float into your room. A fantastic place to enjoy the beauty of Kalimpong!!

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
