We travelled to Ging Tea House from Delhi. I stayed at the property with my parents (senior citizens) and children (11 & 9) from in Oct. 2021. Our stay was one of the best we've ever had in our lives! Ging is a treat for the eyes, balm for the soul, peace for the heart, and a sheer joy for all the senses. The property, the breathtaking tea estate, the hills... everything is simply majestic. We were promptly picked up at Bagdogra airport by Kiran from Ging. Since I had told them we would be a family of 5, they sent 2 Innovas which was very smart since that allowed all of us to sit comfortably in one car while our luggage came in the other car. The drive from Bagodgra to Ging (beautiful drive) takes usually 3.5 hours, but that day it took us about 5 hours since we got stuck in the worst traffic jam in Darjeeling city due to the upcoming festivities for Dussehra. We were quite exhausted from our travel (which started very early from Delhi) but when we arrived at Ging in the afternoon, all our fatigue vanished! We were immediately struck by the sprawling British bungalow and the serene beauty of the place. We knew we were in for a treat for the next 3 days! We had breakfast outside everyday under the beautiful seating area Ging has overlooking their own sprawling tea estate and the mystical hills. We could hear the chirping of the birds as we sat there over endless cups of the best Darjeeling tea (picked at Ging’s tea estate) and we soaked in the clean, fresh air. The breakfast was delicious. The main menu for breakfast was different on each day with either poha, cutlets, and puris with sabzi being served along with any kind of egg/omelette, jam, butter, toast, cereal. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-hour leisurely breakfasts every morning surrounded by amazing natural beauty, lush greenery, peace, and quiet. The package included lunch and dinner as well. We had Indian, Chinese, and Nepalese food during our stay. We enjoyed all the home cooked meals that were prepared with love and care. The bedrooms were large and clean and the beds were super comfortable. We slept very peacefully on all 3 nights (I wish we could have spent another few nights there!). The loos were also very spacious with a Geyser, a good shower, and even a seating area! Only advise would be to carry your own soap for bathing since the soaps provided are quite small. The property provides free Wi-Fi which mostly works well. We didn't face any major connectivity issues while were there. The staff was outstanding. Mr. Andrew was a perfect host. Smiling, pleasant, and always willing to be of assistance. We had asked for cars to take us around Darjeeling and to Mirik Valley and Ging provided us not only with comfortable cars (Innovas) for a family of 5 (at no extra charge), but also with polite and courteous drivers. All the staff at the tea estate, including Raju, Anju, Prashant, chef, and Kiran were so well mannered, humble, helpful, and just awesome. Ging has 6 bedrooms. We stayed in 2 of them and we made friends with some of the other guests also staying at the property during the same time. We had evening drinks and snacks together in the beautiful, spacious lobby. We enjoyed playing snooker on the large snooker table and we loved the view of the night lights scattered around the hills that we could see from the lawns. Ging is a perfect place to unwind, forget all your troubles, and just immerse yourself in the best of nature the property has to offer (along with its outstanding service). Staying at Ging is a once in a lifetime experience. It should be fully enjoyed. It is for people of all ages, My young children enjoyed it as much as we adults did. The cost is definitely high, but I would say it is worth every single penny. We simply fell in love with Ging. We will never forget our stay there. Now that we are back in Delhi, we marvel at the beautiful photos we took and already dream about when we will be back!

The place is personified by its hospitality. Mr. Andrews and his team is exceptional in taking care of every small detail of their guests. Unlike most other star rated properties, here you get a personalised touch which adds a whole new dimension to your holiday. You just feel like you are in your own backyard which is very comforting. The Tea House is located inside the tea estate and has lovely views of the mountains. The house itself is very well maintained with an archaic British touch to it. The rooms are large and well decorated. My favourite part of the stay here was just being able to sit in the garden and enjoy the breakfast and the evening tea. The dinner experience in the beautiful dining room was very royal. The highlight was the born fire organised by the team. If you want to enjoy a relaxed vacation and experience really good service, this is the place. These guys arrange everything for you and all you have to do is just be there and enjoy. Darjeeling is a very popular tourist attraction. But when you go there, try to keep a day just to enjoy the tea estate and the property. You will not regret the experience.

The location is heaven, the rooms are exquisite, the service is impeccable, the food is delicious and the fancy afternoon tea is refreshing ,the hospitality of the staff headed by the manager Mr. Andrew is way beyond my expectations. The scenic beauty of the way to the factory is eye catching and the factory tour , tea testing is breathtaking.
