Firstly, it should be listed under hotels in Lolegaon, not Kalimpong. My personal experience was worse than the road between Lava and Lolegaon.
Here are the details of my visit:
a) The first thing which struck me on reaching the hotel was the renovation work going on. Hotel booking was done thru a travel agent, still could not understand how they could accept the booking when there was renovation going on and the entire hotel was a mess. There was dust all-over.
b) From filthy bathrooms to non functioning TVs, the carpet in the rooms were so dirty that you wouldn't feel like walking with your shoes on.
c) Hotel staff included Gopal, the care taker and two other helpers. It seemed that they were unaware of our booking. However, they were kind enough to accept this was a mistake at the management's end and started preparing the rooms. Meanwhile we were given two cottages till the cleaning ends.
d) Cottage rooms were very small, suffocating, has a non-functioning tv, and a bathroom filled with local insects.
I know people who would sue this hotel owner for the stuff we went thru. Anyways, we somehow managed to spend one night and left the hotel long before the check-out time. We did not want to give them a rupee more, did not order any food/snack from here. We dined at Sunrise restaurant, 2 minutes walking distance from here. There food was great and behavior extremely cordial. Everything felt better once we stepped out of this hotel.
I sincerely hope they take note and improve themselves. Meanwhile, if you have already booked this hotel, may God help you. And if not, like I've said, there are many better options. I would recommend Hotel Sunrise, Yankee's stay, Hotel Pride, whichever fits your budget. Sure they will serve you better than Lovely resort.
