Stayed 3 nights in December 2016
Home away from home”
A group of three of us stayed at the Shire during 25th December, 2016 to the 28th. The property is located perfectly at a 15 minute's walk from the centre of town. Quite a few of the popular tourist attractions are all within a short distance of the property as follows: 1. Pine View Nursery (famous cactus nursery housing rare and beautiful cactii) 10 minutes walk 2. Morgan House (Kalimpong's famed haunted house) 30 minutes uphill climb 3. Army Golf Course (situated opposite to Morgan House) 4. Durpin Monastery 15 minutes drive The best thing according to me about making a booking with the Shire is that they provided a very comfortable pick-up and drop facility from Bagdogra Airport at a reasonable charge All rooms at this home stay are spacious, well appointed and immaculately clean. The food provided here is tasty, simple and healthy. Kudos to the chef who kept whipping up lovely dishes for us everyday. We were greeted everyday by very helpful, caring and courteous staff who tried their best to cater to our every need. Special mention is to be made of the owner Mr. Bhutia whose warmth and concern for us during our stay made everything that much more pleasant. It has been a delight chatting with him on topics ranging from politics, economics to the rich history of kalimpong. We returned from Kalimpong with fond memories of the Shire and look forward to visiting again some time in the future

Homestay with pizzaz”
The Shire is a homestay attached to the owners residence. It is built onto the hillside and has 3 floors and a terrace. We'd booked the family room and asked for an additional bed, arranging all of this with the manager, Cecil. Cecil was on hand to welcome us and was very friendly and helpful as was the rest of the staff. We were also provided clear instructions on how to go about town and what to see. The kitchen is fairly decent and the chef did a good job with the dishes we'd requested. Breakfast on the terrace was wonderful with a bright sunny morning and a bit of nip in the air. Overall great value for money if you're looking for an interesting and friendly experience.

It's almost Home”
The staff, room, set-up
It was a very good experience with very friendly staff. I was greeted at the gate on arrival. The owner, Mr Bhutia, who used to be a teacher in Bhutan, was almost like an old friend. He ensured that everything we asked for were provided to the best of his ability. I spent many hours chatting with him. The rooms were clean and the food average & service was good. Chilled beers anytime! The set-up was very pleasant with flora everywhere. One could sit out in the open at every level of the home-stay. The surrounding areas around the hotel make excellent strolls. Mr Bhutia can also arrange for tours to the surrounding region & taxi bookings. On a clear day, one could see Kangchenjunga from his Terrace, as I did. One of my best experience in India.
