Clean comfortable rooms, great mountain views, good meeting room, and wonderful staff. Location is close enough to walk to main shopping and restaurants... and far enough to be quiet and out of traffic.

Very good service, nice comfortable rooms, only problem with the hotel is the walk back from the Mall to the hotel which is very difficult for even slightly elderly persons. Some of the rooms do not have any views but the ones which have are very nice. Overall a very pleasant stay.

We booked a deluxe room but same was upgraded to privilege room by manager. Privilege rooms are facing Kanchenjunga. Food is nice. Game area has not been maintained properly. They have portraits in the passage area of movies shot in Darjeeling which i found interesting. Staff is cooperative.

While the rooms were nice the breakfast area needed much improvement . Breakfast spread was also very disappointing. Did not live upto our expectation. The approach to the hotel is a little uphill and one has to climb up many steps to reach the lobby. Hence, difficult for aged or people with knee issues.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For a tryst with the Himalayas, the one place of its kind is Hotel Sinclairs Darjeeling. The strategically located Sinclairs offers an inspiring view of Kanchendzonga on a clear day. Memories of that will never leave you. A few minutes pleasant walk from the town square Chowrasta, the hotel invokes the charm of an old country house. If the Himalayas are the piece de resistance of Darjeeling’s legendary charm, the hill station is full of magical beauties. Experience it all by being a guest at Hotel Sinclairs Darjeeling.A throwback to the Raj-era, the hotel exudes Victorian charm. Carved fireplaces, antique furniture, chandeliers and traditional artifacts will transpose you to a time you have always wanted to experience. Cozy atmosphere and warm hospitality will have you relaxed and fulfilled. You will enjoy the pampering by our friendly hosts and the “home away from home” feeling will ensure that you are comfortable throughout your stay at the hotel. ... more   less
