Spend three nights at Magnolia residency and had a wonderful stay. Room no 305 has the best view and ofcourse the best room. But the entire property is very well maintained and carefully decorated with local Tibetan murals. Our room though small was fully equipped. Even had a writing table. WiFi worked fine though most places in Darjeeling has network...

Starting from the moment you walk in - the manager is very nice and happy. The other staff always made an effort to say hello or at least smile. The rooms were cosy and everything was clean. The breakfast up on the rooftop was absolutely incredible! Definite highlight were the pancakes and egg sandwiches. We had a great stay and...

We found everything at Magnolia Residency absolutely perfect. Our room (double executive) was spacious, very comfortable, super clean with the most fantastic view. The hotel owner/manager was always on hand with any requests and made our stay very easy. Excellent breakfasts are available too for a tiny sum. Factor in the bargain rates and this place really is amazing value.

We visited Darjeeling in October 2016 and stayed in Magnolia Residency. It is located in a narrow lane close to Chowrasta. Rooms were a little small but clean. Amenities were good. We had booked the room with complimentary breakfast and it was totally worth it. It was from their in-house kitchen and was ample, wonderful, and delicious. They usually serve...

Magnolia Residency had really lovely staff and great views from the terrace. If you stay make sure to catch the sunrise on the terrace, it's beautiful. Unfortunately I've had to give an average due to several factors. The room had a persistent damp smell and feel to our clothes. The weather was also really bad for our stay in Darjeeling....

The hotel is on the uphill road away from the Mall (on the road with the stable). The hotel itself is clean. The room, though not very big, is clean and luxurious. But it is on a very narrow road with cheap hotel/eateries on both sides. The approach road is through a local market, quite dirty. The breakfast served was...

Stayed from 26.05.2016 to 28.05.2016, room no 305. The room was clean and tidy with excellent view. They offer breakfast at rooftop which gives you an excellent sentiment. All staves are really helpful and polite. Mr.Navin is a very helpful and guide us for our sightseeing. The Mall is just 3-4 minutes’ walk from the hotel.
