We reached Kalimpong from an exhausted back to back 20 days of work in Mumbai, Delhi and East Sikkim. I chose Silver Oaks as it looked peaceful, small, quaint and quiet. It was three hours from our shoot location and 2 days here seemed right to rejuvenate. When you stay in a boutique property you feel just at home, with...

Good place , incredible view, comfortable rooms, be careful of floor mats, I almost tripped on the floor 5 times, rest is good, affordable and food is just fine.

They have problem with bathtub which was not functioning even after repetitive complain. One can enjoy Sunrise while having hot tea within the room (not for roadside rooms). The best part is their...

This hotel is a gem added to the beauty of Kalimpong. It is a very old colonial style building converted into a luxury hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. All the rooms in this hotel are unique. We had a king sized bed for our stay here. The room also had a two seater sofa...

Had a great stay at Elgin Kalimpong. The corner room on the first floor opened to a great view. The hotel, like all Elgin properties, has modernity wrapped in old world charm. For us, breakfast and dinner was part of the package. But they offer a decent a la carte choice. We especially liked their mutton cutlets, needless to say...

A very nice property. However overly priced. The view from hotel is amazing.Staff could be a little more friendly.Also they could increase the choice of food in their restaurant. Kalimpong city as such is beautiful. You could visit a lot of places. Durpin, Delo and enjoy Para gliding.

I have stayed here for one night. This hotel has very old carpets etc. Need some serious renovation and upgrade. Food was average and enough to feed. Not very tasty. Views and location is very nice. Loved my evening tea at sunset. Staff was helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more   less
