We stayed at glenburn estate hotel last week for four nights! It is a hidden gem and one of the finest boutique properties in india. Outstanding rooms and service, led by the affable Rudolph. The cuisine changes every day and the activities can keep you busy , other than exploring the region. Or you can just relax in the wonderful gardens and get some much needed me time. Being avid travellers, this a must visit destination

Glenburn is truly a hidden gem. We would highly recommend is for all aspects. We spent our 05th anniversary there and it was such a brilliant experience. The electric blankets and the hot water tub baths (with tea!) added to the charm of the place. The treks organised were amazing and we truly enjoyed the weather. It always seemed to call for a cup of tea :) Special kudos to Rudolph and the team for an amazing experience - and especially for going out of the way to make our 05th anniversary so special. Met some really interesting people as well and that was another bonus in what was a truly mesmerising trip!

Glenburn Tea Estate is located remotely in the Tea Estate area of West Bengal and takes about 5 hours from Bagdogra airport.Firstly , it is overpriced and costs much more than a 5 or 7 star hotel in any cosmopolitan city of India.Even by international standards the rates are very high.Rs 42000 to Rs 46000 per night.Moreover at least 25 km of the road before Glenburn Tea Estate is horrible.Even a 4 wheel drive is bumpy, jerky, and shaky.Those slightly aged run the risk of cracking their bones. Reservations are done by their Kolkatta office and it has been my experience that they are authoritative and speak with an air of superiority. I may add that I had made enquiries with them and they gave me an estimate of about Rs 42000 per night for 5 nights.Meanwhile I got in touch with Thomas Cook who confirmed my booking for Rs 38125 per night.My money was already with Thomas Cook for making payment to Glenburn.However a little while later after confirming my booking Thomas Cook informed that Glenburn is not taking my booking through them.I was aghast as my to and fro flights were booked and I had to visit the place as per plan.Then I contacted Glenburn who said that they have released my rooms as I have not paid the advance of 50% in time.I realised that Glenburn has created this situation for me so that I am forced to pay more to them ie Rs 42000 per night.I had no option but to pay the higher amount.Even Thomas Cook commented that it is a loss of face for them as even after confirmation of booking Glenburn refused the booking in my name made through them.

Response from Husna-Tara Prakash, Owner at Glenburn Tea Estate
Responded 12 Mar 2021
Dear Sir, We are very surprised to see this second review when your wife has already submitted a previous review stating that you had a 'dreamlike' holiday to Glenburn, and everything was wonderful. You then got in touch with us for a refund on part of the price you had paid us. You enquired directly to our hotel, and also through an agent. We offered you a discount, but cannot offer the contracted rate we share with a travel agent, as this is a business contract we cannot break, and it would be unethical to offer you the same rate that we offer them. At no point did we refuse your booking from the agency, and were indeed surprised that you made the payment directly to us when they had shared their commission with you and offered you a lower rate. We only mentioned having to release the booking when we did not get a confirmation from the agent or from you, and we had other enquiries. With only 8 rooms, we cannot hold rooms without a deposit. We had so many conversations, emails and whatsapp messages exchanged, so it is difficult to accept that you were "forced" into paying a higher rate, when both options were always, and very clearly open to you. Regarding the rates "higher than a 5 or 7 star hotel" our nightly package includes unlimited food, a dedicated car and driver and activities across a 1,600 acre estate, plus GST too. With so many staff members and so much attention to detail, this is how we manage to run our small hotel, and to stay afloat especially during a difficult year because of COVID and the lockdown. Lastly, the section of bad road is not 25km but just the last few kilometres and this is always clearly mentioned to all our guests. It is under repair and we hope it will be much better very soon. This is also the reason that we have our own fleet of cars, and insist that our guests arrive in our own transport with drivers who know every pot hole along the way, so as to lessen the bumps. Yours sincerely Husna-Tara

My husband and I recently stayed at Glenburn tea estate for five nights. The tea gardens, forests, the beautiful bungalows with its gardens and profusion of flowers and Kanchenjunga playing hide and seek in the background was a magical , blissful experience. It rejuvenated our weary mind and soul in the time of the virus. What made the experience even more memorable was the services of Mr. Rudolph and his staff Yamuna , Sabin , Luna, Nisha , Raju, Dinesh, Maniraj the drivers and others. They all had the perfect blend of professional skill and personal touch. Would love to visit Glenburn again someday.

We spend 3 days in dream. The location is excellent. Where ever you go for breakfast or lunch you can see mount kanchendzhongha. We stayed at singalila suite. The food is awesome. Not a single item in lunch or dinner are similar to another. We always got surprised at the dining table. The staffs are very much careful. We stayed there four nights. We enjoyed everything there to the fullest. We had two picnics there, one near Rangeet river and another near Rungdoong river. We had bird watching tour also. Variety of birds are found. The manager in the tea factory was very helpful and knowledgeable. We learned the basics of tea there. Our guide Luna and asst manager Rudolf are very nice and knowledgeable person. Over all we must thank the person behind all these Mr Bertie and Mrs Audrey without whom the experience would not be so amazing. Thank you all of the glen burn family.
