The views are great as long as it is not foggy/hazy. We had a few problems. When we arrived at the airport, the transportation we arranged through the hotel was not waiting for us. We ended up waiting for an hour trying to figure out where the driver was. Then we finally had to walk with all of our bags out to the parking lot in front of the airport. Poor communication by hotel management. The drive to the hotel was 5-6 hours on a windy single lane road. When we arrived, our queen/king was actually two beds pushed together because they have no larger beds. The room was cold every night, even with the small heater in the room. We asked for more blankets, but management said they do not provide them. The food at the buffet is often cold. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL.
Lush, sophisticated and welcoming from the start to end! We were ushered into a calm tranquil world, just what every traveler expects . Extraordinarily huge and tastefully decorated rooms , splendid lobby areas. We could feel the positive chi flowing. The Buddhist resonances matched the decor and the spirit of the resort. Fabulous food and service.
The good - the staff is friendly, the food is acceptable, the location is almost in the centre of the city. The bad - the staff is not up to the mark in services, the rooms are dated and most importantly, the hotel is geared up to dealing mainly with large groups mainly from Gujarat, which puts individual travelers at a disadvantage with respect to room cleaning, buffet breakfast, etc.
The staff tries hard, but is hampered by lack of training and comparison with benchmarks.
Five years back, this hotel would have been considered very good, but today, it's just average.
Not the best hotel in Gangtok, but not bad either. It is an average hotel. The view from the rooms is not good. Also the location seemed to be far from the main city. Not many people seemed to know this hotel wither.
Staff requires further training in the restaurant section. Good is good. Breakfast is good, however, not many options are available.
But overall it is a decent hotel.
IT WAS VERY NICE EXPERIENCE TO STAY THERE VERY COMFORTABLE AND COOPERATIVE STAFF AND LOCATED IN THE MAIN MARKET WHICH CAN BE WATCHED FROM THE ROOM ITSELF
OVERALL VERY NICE AND EVEN THE HOTEL MAKES IT CONVENIENT EVEN FOR OLD PEOPLE LIKE US (ABOVE 70 YRS).
Hotel is very conveniently located at a walking distance to MG Marg. The rooms are well kept and very clean. On the terrace of the hotel you get pretty good mountain views (not Kanchenjunga). The restaurant is average and prepares edible vegetarian breakfast! Overall it's a good value for money.
The location! While conveniently located, it's still in a small bylane. So if you're looking for a remote and calm location avoid this hotel.
