Lovely Resort
Ranked #44 of 67 Kalimpong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 September 2016 via mobile

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.

We went to this hotel on January 26th,2015. The hotel is good with lawn and greenary.The waiter Gopal was very nice guy with decent attitude.The hotel entrance has many stairs which might cause problem to elderly people. To have food we had to go to a nearby hotel (5 mins walk and its associated with lovely hotel) as there is no arrangement of food in lovely resort itself.Rooms are clean but to get hot water one has to wait atleast for half an hour as the geyser is operated from reception.

The hotel is a budget one, with close to Lolegaon Taxi stand. I stayed here for a night and here are my observations:

Hotel Type: Economic

Reachable: Okay, older aged people may face some difficulty

Room type: 2 bedroom/ 3 bedroom

External View: Simple but good with the lawn and garden.

Internal: Simple wooden.

Restaurant and food: There is a restaurant at the basement which is 100% a canteen only. Food is medium grade with limited simple Indian food options.

Water: Although there is a geyser in every room but they can be operated from inside and are operated from reception. At a max 2 geysers can be operated at a time due to load issues out of the 11 rooms. And it takes about 40 minutes to get a hot water bucket.

Service: No, service is not at par. Mr. Chatterjee although a good person but the other room service staffs should understand that their behavior too impact on the guests. No hot water provided during dining and had to ask repeatedly. There were cow webs and a spider at my room which shows lack of cleanliness.

Others:

Television: Yes (14" CTV with some satellite channels and poor reception)
Mobile: All major operators except Tata Docomo.

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing Mt. Kanchenjunga
