We stayed at this hotel 12 years ago and were unimpressed by the service. Things have definitely changed for the better, and we could not fault any aspect of the hotel.

We stayed there for 2 nights from 24th to 26th December. Fabulous hotel. It's unique because it reminds of British regime. The rooms are very cozy with antique furnitures yet comfortable. The architecture of the hotel has colonial stamp all over. The lobby and the lounge of the hotel looks excellent. The hotel complex is having garden in several layers...

We are still at this hotel, but it doesn't seem like we are wanted. Last evening, a family arrived at the restaurant and all the attention of the staff was directed to them. We enquiries and we're told that they were the owners. It's ok for the owners to get special attention (it's their hotel after all!) but they need...

The building was build during the British rule and is today maintained very well with antique furniture and cutlery in the restaurant. Very well maintained hotel and excellent service and food. A good location to unwind.

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
