Location is not the best -- hotel is right on a very busy, noisy road -- but the rooms are clean and the windows look out to the mountains. The food was fresh and wholesome, and the service was friendly. I wish the garden at back had been larger.

We visited the restaurant on short notice and as a big group (9 members) during our trip to Kalimpong. The service staff was unfazed with the big, unannounced group, and started serving us almost immediately. We ordered soups and starters first and as the items arrived, we ordered the main course, which was, no surprise, served almost immediately after the... More

As the name suggests, this is a restaurant in a garden setting, called A Room with A View. Very nice ambience and good preparations. It is an in-house restaurant of the hotel, but open to anyone who walks in for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks. They have a capacity to cater to large groups. It's nice to have your evening tea...

We checked in at Hotel Pink Door nearby. Their restaurant was closed. So we wnet to have lunch at this place. The restaurant is neat. Food is tasty. Service is good. Quantity is adequate and rates are moderate. What more? Bonus- Excellent views of the valley and Kanchenjungha ( subject to clear wheather)

Rooms are alright for a budget hotel. The view through the windows is pretty good. You will be provided with a wifi dongle (shared) in room, if required. The owners could install net on window to prevent bugs and also a fan as temperature is quite high during May-June. Be careful of the stairs as you have to climb quite... More

Place is good for stay and has a mountain view, but food was very average and not recommended at least for dinner.

Right near the entrance to Kalimpong itself and in the Sood's Garden Retreat Hotel. It is by far the best restaurant we ate at in Kalimpong and much cleaner than the ones downtown.
