Good place to spend a relaxing getaway

Overall a good experience, The property was amazing and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner menu and quality of food preparation can be improved further but these are surely not a show stopper. The property is at a walkable distance from Mall road, Kaventers etc

    Grand old hotel

    The Elgin provided comfort and wonderful, helpful service in a grand old building. It is perfectly located in Darjeeling. At dinner a very out of tune piano was played and it was quite awful sorry to say. The food was not as good as our previous visit with a sameness of flavour between dishes. We had a lovely two night stay.
