They called us one day before our arrival to confirm our booking...

The location of the hotel is one of the best in affordable price.Not too far from the mall, walkable distance. The manager of the hotel Mr Sarkar is an excellent person and very very helpful.Staffs are cordial. One can see Kanchenjunga peacks clearly from the rooms of 1st and 2nd floors. The only issue is food, which is so so....

The hotel is at an excellent location, on the Mall Road near Raj Bhavan. If one keeps the widow curtains open, the Kanchenjunga will wake you up in the morning. The range is visible from the rooms. Room service is good, food is decent with lots of variety. Good Darjeeling Tea is available on call. A lovely sit out as...

Best place to stay in Darjeeling in terms of Location, View or service. Take a walk round the mall, will be through the Hotel. The view point is just top of Hotel terrace. Nothing else could be a better choice than this. Hotel stuffs are very friendly. Mr. Sarcar, good human being. Just visit and check it out......

I looked around a few hotels before I came across The Retreat. And I knew I had to stay here when I was completely taken by the spectacular views from our room of the hills and Kachenjunga! The manager was most helpful with everything we needed and the staff were friendly and attentive. The room itself was large, well planned...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laced by horizon-kissing green tea-estates and foggy hills, Darjeeling is the 'Queen of the Hills' in all its own splendour. For the world tourists, trekkers and globetrotters, Darjeeling is the gate to a tranquil world that is filled with enchanting and breath-taking picturesque beauty. The sunrise from atop the Tiger Hill is mysticism beyond compare. And who ever misses a walk to the Mall Road for some woollens shopping, or a ride on the famous toy-train that whistles its way through the greenery? Darjeeling will wrap you in its beauty, and your stay at The Retreat will make your trip more memorable. Here at The Retreat, you can see the Kanchenjunga peak from every room! ... more   less
