About
Description
In the heart of Darjeeling, close to the Mall's shopping and entertainment, is "Snowlion Homestay." The hotel is owned & managed by a Tibetan family. Located on Gandhi Road, which is a continuation of the More Mall Road, it provides an ideal base for the many local tourist attractions, whilst being in a central, upmarket area of the town. All our rooms have en suite (attached) bathroom with showers, hot & cold running water (24hrs), W.C, in-house telephone and remote control television with Cable TV (37 channels including BBC, Star TV, Zee, ESPN etc). We provide room heaters and hot water bottles at no additional cost during the winter season. WI-FI is freely accessible in the lounge. We would be happy to arrange for a taxi to collect you at BGD airport or NJP station. We have pick-up from BGD airport or NJP station and travel to Darjeeling (one way). If you choose to use us to be dropped back to the Airport or Station at the end of your stay, we will arrange it. The drive up to Darjeeling is 3hrs and is in any event very scenic. Often tourists choose to use a slightly longer (and even more scenic) route via Mirik Lake. This latter route is approximately 4 hrs. Less

Hi Srinivas, Thankyou, my apologies for the inconvenience regarding the water supply and I would like to point out that in the hills, due to shortage of water supply, we keep reserve tanks as backup which is done by everyone. When the main tanks run low, it is replenished from the reserve tanks and normal supply is resumed. You make it out to seem as if your room did not have water throughout your stay. That's quite an exaggeration!!! Nowhere on our site or partner sites MMT & Goibibo is the word Buffet mentioned. We serve choice of toast with butter and jam, cornflakes, muesli, porridge and aloo paranthas with tea or coffee and fruit for breakfast in our dining area from where the KanchenJunga mountain ranges can be viewed on a clear day & also from our Roof-Top terrace. There are many popular multi-cuisine restaurants & cafes along Gandhi road right upto the Mall which is 3/4 mins walk on a straight gradient. Everyone appreciates our location with parking facilities esp families with elderly people. 99% of guests have praised our drivers for their driving skills and behavior. I do not understand why only you seem to have a problem with your stay. I hope its not due to the fact that you booked a double room for 2 pax but landed 2 + 2 and was charged for it.
