The Pros: the best part is the view of Kanchenjunga from the hotel room. Your mornings will not be the same anymore as long as you stay here!! to top that, the food is awesome.. that too at a fair price!! Now the cons: the hotel especially the Annex building needs major maintenance. the hotel itself if a bit far...

If you are a budget tourist, willing to overlook a few maintenance related issues, then Govt Tourist Lodge can be the best option. Walking distance from the Mall and with a clear view of the snow capped mountains from the beautiful lawn,Tourist Lodge can be an ideal getaway for budget tourists.

Its a government property, so abviously the maintainence is not that great thanks to government apathy. The property has a very nice garden and great views from rooms on the first floor and old building. Surprisingly the staff is very helpful and nicely behaved.

The prime Govt property has got the right location and massive rooms. However, everything has a old dated feel and rooms furniture seems from 1960s era. Excellent view of surrounding mountains ranges from many rooms on valley side. There may be better managed hotels in similar price range in Darjeeling.

On the plus side, this is a very economical place to stay if one stays on the first floor of the Annex Building. Rooms in the Main Building are pretty pricy - comparable with some of the good hotels located right around the Mall. But, unfortunately, the price of food is higher than Morgan House though the quality leaves much...

The location of the lodge good. Rooms are spacious with adequate water supply. Foods are also good. But the professionalism of staff is very very poor.

Stayed in the Annex Building Ground Floor with wife and 3 year old daughter - no problem at all. The rooms are quite ok when compared to the price we pay for it. If the sky is clear ample sunlight will come on the balcony (not in the room). The lighting in the room is not quite good so in...

Now this location is at a height could bea problem to climb to reach the hotel from Mall for weak and senior citizens. It has good restaurant and cooking is tolerable and the prices are quite reasonable. We...
