We spent 5 wonderful days in the Bamboo Retreat near Gangtok. The hotelstaff is very friendly and warmly, the food was ecellent and the rooms are clean and cozy. The hotel is surrounded by nature and you can go for a walk directly from the hotel. If you need any support the staff is always there to care for you.
