It was around 24 years since I had visited Darjeeling, and finally we landed up at Sinclairs Darjeeling. Nice Hotel, Friendly Staff, Good Spread of Breakfast. Close to the Mall. The inside layout of the hotel is also nice. The final walk to the hotel is steep, but good for health conscious people. Not recommended for people with walking difficulty...

Dear Mr Anirban, Thank you for your review and nice words about the hotel and our team. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at Sinclairs Darjeeling.

Good place, good food, well maintained rooms and friendly staff. Poor maintenance in the reception area and ground floor corridors. The wooden flooring seems to be caving in at many places. Breakfast buffet was very good. Catering to guests from all parts of India. Courteous staff and chef in the restaurant. Keep it up guys.

Yes, it pinches a hole into your pocket but for Darjeeling where I found hotels quite costly, its worth the money spent. executive rooms were good and had a fine view. Room was neat , food was good and overall ambience was nice. Internet connectivity was a bit sloppy otherwise nothing was bad.

Our stay in Sinclairs was very satisfactory.

We booked this hotel after a lot of research on its location and services. The uphill climb to the hotel will be challenging. But that is all the effort you need to put in!

Great location but overall not so classy when compared to other Sinclairs' properties. The deluxe room on the 1st floor had painted glass which restricted the view and even the executive rooms offered a decent view only. The quality of the breakfast buffet can definately be improved. Overall I am left with an OK experience wanting a lot more.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For a tryst with the Himalayas, the one place of its kind is Hotel Sinclairs Darjeeling. The strategically located Sinclairs offers an inspiring view of Kanchendzonga on a clear day. Memories of that will never leave you. A few minutes pleasant walk from the town square Chowrasta, the hotel invokes the charm of an old country house. If the Himalayas are the piece de resistance of Darjeeling’s legendary charm, the hill station is full of magical beauties. Experience it all by being a guest at Hotel Sinclairs Darjeeling.A throwback to the Raj-era, the hotel exudes Victorian charm. Carved fireplaces, antique furniture, chandeliers and traditional artifacts will transpose you to a time you have always wanted to experience. Cozy atmosphere and warm hospitality will have you relaxed and fulfilled. You will enjoy the pampering by our friendly hosts and the “home away from home” feeling will ensure that you are comfortable throughout your stay at the hotel. ... more   less
