Our family of three adults spent five nights here in mid April. We were initially quite disappointed at not getting a room with a mountain view, the hotel was quite full, but the Manager promised to move us the next day. And he did, to a bigger room with a partial mountain view. Having inspected many of the rooms at this property, we realised that being situated higher up, the hotel has some not so great views of Darjeeling town, peoples' backyards, etc. But this is just a fact of life in present day Darjeeling.
The hotel does not overlook Kanchenjunga, but the mountains that can be seen are pretty enough. In this case, location is not everything, one can walk a short distance and view Kanchenjunga, weather permitting.
The staff were kindness itself, always willing to help, very obliging, from front desk to restaurant and housekeeping staff, thank you all.
The buffet meals at the restaurant are varied and of good quality, mainly Indian, some Chinese, a bit of Continental. Again, special requests were no problem at all. We opted for MAP and thus ate lighter meals at lunchtime. The buffet spread is very filling indeed.
The hotel is impeccably maintained, staff are constantly cleaning, polishing, gardening, etc. The decor may be a bit ecletic, but that is a part of the Mayfair's charm, an old fashioned home, where you are an honoured guest.
If we were ever lucky enough to visit Darjeeling again, this would be our only choice, no doubt at all.
