      Close to all shopping in Darjeeling. For someone who like this it's a wonderful place. It just a few 100 meters from Mall Road and other very good markets. The people are very friendly and helpful extremely kind and hospitable.

      The service staff no needs to be increased. Overall service support needs to be more prompt ; The buffet menu spread and quality must improve at the values being charged. Also the menu are too Indian ... need to include more non Indian cuisine ..

      Dismal and depressing hotel, stay at the Mayfair”
      We booked to stay at the Elgin for 5 nights in February (3-8 Feb) through Agoda. After two nights we decided that we didn't want to stay there any longer because it was a dismal and deeply depressing hotel. The public rooms were attractive but that is the only positive thing that could be said of the hotel. The staff particularly the reception staff were apathetic and inefficient, meals particularly the breakfast was very poor, the fresh fruits finished very quickly and like many of the other dishes were not replaced, dinner was slightly better but the dining room was dark and dismal. Thy had a pianist who played from 7.30 to 10.30 non stop (we could hear him from our room which was directly above) and though he played very well and was a very pleasant man the piano was untuned. In addition he backed all the diners and faced a blank wall thoughout the evening and we felt for him. The table linen had stains and was not changed for each meal. The bed linen was very old and therefore didn't look fresh though it was probably clean. The bathroom was very small and the bath had no plug so you couldn't take a bath and when we asked housekeeping for a plug they said they couldn't give one because they wanted to conserve water. It was also very noisy and on the first morning we were there we were woken up at 6am by loud knocking which we thought was on our door but was on another door. It was not a friendly place and when we decided to leave we asked them if they would refund two days or at least one day and though Agoda tried their best, they were totally inflexible and wouldn't refund. We left and went to Mayfair hotel which was a few minutes away and we found a hotel which was completely different to the Elgin. It cost exactly the same. The staff were efficient and eager to please, the food was excellent and their breakfast and dinner buffets were varied and delicious. I was able to have a bath there as well. It was the last two days of our three weeks in India and we lef

      Best Darj has to offer. ”
      When you enter the property you are transformed to a different era. Great ambience, hospitality is at a different level, breakfast and dinner is included and is great in Darjeeling that shuts early. If Nimmi Oberoi and Mr BR Oberoi are around they make you fee like you are at a home away from home with their personal touch.

      Great. I stayed for a weekend and loved it. The location is perfect, and the Elgin is tied with the Windamere as the nicest hotel in town.

      Great disappointment”
      Great disappointment
      It was a great disappointment. The rooms were dingy and had a typical smell. Asked for room freshener but not provided. The service was extremely slow. Chapaties came about 20-25 minutes after the vegetables had been served therby making the entire food unworthy of eating. The vegetable dishes of the ala carte menu of lunch became the fixed menu of the dinner buffet. When my wife wanted the dinner in her room on 7th evening she was flatly refuses by the staff over the phone and asked her to come down to the dining room for the dinner. When I came down and spoke to the staff at the reception, who was also handling the room service, flatly refused having received such a request. Later he did not even have the courtesy to apologise. The staff did not care to follow the instructions. At the time of checking I had asked for 2 INNOVAS on 8th morning at 8.30 am for taking us to Bagdogra Airport. I confirmed the same again on 7th evening but on 8th morning I get 2 XYLOS. The staff also came late on 8th morning thereby delaying our departure schedule. If this is the state of affairs at the Hotel then I am sorry to say that it is not worth the price which we paid. In fact, the stay at the Hotel washed off our sweet memories of our Holidays at Sikkim which preceded the stay at this Hotel.

      It was good . I wish they had lift there . otherwise it was very nice and beautiful . Beware of monkeys and close the window while you are away . Three friendly dogs will attract your attention if you love animals.

      it was a soothing experience in elgin darjeeling, rooms were nice n environment was heart touching, having mall road at a stones throw was a pleasurable experience though the night life is dull as usual in any hill station but u can enjoy the night view of hills from the hotel lobby.
