There were 20 of us and we spent two lovely nights at this beautiful hotel which gave us such wonderful feelings. It had a grandeaur setting and its furnishing was just great. It gave that exclusive and rich setting befitting an era of royalty. We loved every inch of the hotel. The first owner of this premise was the Maharaja of Cooch Bihar.It was leased by the Maharaja to John William Pavion and his wife Edith Agnes Pavion and ran it as the Elgin hotel from November 1930. In 1968 Mr.K.C.Oberoi from the Oberoi family of Hoteliers took over from Mrs.Nancy Oakley. This information can be obtained from the hotel reception. The breakfast and buffet dinner was very good. The hotel is strongly recommended.
