This a small three star hotel in Kalimpong. Good rooms, excellent service and great food. The front office is welcoming and has got a sweet white mountain dog sitting. The grand buffet breakfast and dinner provide quality and tasty food. If staying for transit to Darjeeling or Gangtok it is a must stay for overnight. It has a beautiful step...

Visited Elgin kalimpong from 17th jan to 19th jan. Hotel is situated just opposite to Kalimpong auditorium hall. We were provided an excellent room (room no 54) with valley view though nothing could be seen due to dense fog. The inside of the hotel is very classy and mesmerizing. Had a great time loitering in the front area, specially the...

All rooms have at least 2 bay windows and our east facing ones were bathed with the warm winter sun which was sublime. The rooms were excellent and were actually ready and warmed before we arrived. The dining room buffet was not particularly imaginative and was a step below the standard of the hotel itself. The waiters were very attentive...

Best of all was the furniture...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Elgin Silver Oaks was built in 1930 and once belonged to the prominent architect Frederick Desraj who built the old Teesta Bridge. It is now converted into a luxury hill resort in the Himalayas. Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a profusion of colour, one is treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayas. The natural decor is characteristic in the imposing Kanchenjungha which can be seen on a clear day, blooming petunias and asters, the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies flitting through colourful azaleas, drooping geraniums, proud orchids and heaven, temporarily descends on earth. Sitting in one of the quaint gazebos, the tea seems to be flavoured by the refreshing winds of the Himalayas. ... more   less
