We got a great nature facing view with a sun rise which was fascinating and excellent. This hotel serves only breakfast with its cyclic menu selection. Room bed is extremely comfortable. Breakfast served at terrace with morning sun rays falling upon you gave us an incredible experience.....

Located close to the main square the rooms here are spacious and, depending on your room, they offer incredible views of the valley. The owner is one of the kindest people you will meet. The breakfasts change each morning and were some of the best we had in over 10 weeks in India. Good wifi too! On a clear day,...

Good service, room was clean enough. Decent price. Very loud because it is located on a fairly busy street. Did not provide soap in bathroom, so need to bring your own. Wifi speed was pretty slow, especially compared to other Darjeeling hotels in the same price range.

Our room was a reasonable size with cupboard,...

We enjoyed our stay at the Magnolia. Hotel rooms are cozy but all rooms are cleaned and decorative. The manager (Mr. Pradhan) was very pleasant and went out of the way to be helpful. Breakfast was sumptuous and tasty. We enjoy the trip.

Changed the room for better view. Extremely friendly staff, room was clean and nicely equipped. But approach to the hotel was poor and room/s do not offer proper mountain views. Also breakfast menu needs improvement.

Stayed Feb 1st 7 nights. Small hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff. Great views from dining terrace. The breakfasts are large, tasty and will set you up for the day. This time of year very cold, everyone wears winter clothes even in local restaurants. Good shower and hot water bottles provided. No heating in room unless you pay extra...
