#32 of 248 in Darjeeling
Travellers' Choice
Laced by horizon-kissing green tea-estates and foggy hills, Darjeeling is the 'Queen of the Hills' in all its own splendour. For the world tourists, trekkers and globetrotters, Darjeeling is the gate to a tranquil world that is filled with enchanting and breath-taking picturesque beauty. The sunrise from atop the Tiger Hill is mysticism beyond compare. And who ever misses a walk to the Mall Road for some woollens shopping, or a ride on the famous toy-train that whistles its way through the greenery? Darjeeling will wrap you in its beauty, and your stay at The Retreat will make your trip more memorable. Here at The Retreat, you can see the Kanchenjunga peak from every room!

I had a great experience during my 3 days stay at this hotel. The hotel is located exactly near Raj Bhavan. The ambience was very good and peaceful. The hotel staffs and manager were very cooperative and have extremely polite behaviour. The rooms were very clean and food quality was very good. The Super Deluxe room was excellent. I wish to stay here during my next visit.

Stayed here from 17th to 23rd Dec, 2021. The property is well maintained having Kanchenjunga view throughout the day if you are lucky to have a clear sky. All the staffs were very friendly and co-operative. And the manager, Mr Arijit Chatterjee, is very helpful. This place is a 10 min stroll from the main mall. But be mindful to return back before 7/8 PM as it gets a bit desolate. Again, the food served in the Retreat is very delicious. Complimentary breakfast is pretty good too.

I would recommend the place unhesitatingly to couples and families. The view is breathtaking. Everyone serves with a smile. And it is just a 5 minute walk from the chowk and Bandstand even for a 70 year old like me.

Our stay at the Retreat was excellent. I would rate this hotel 10 out of 10 for its food quality, housekeeping services, location, and ambiance. Enjoy the spectacular view of the mighty Kanchenjunga from every room of this hotel. The mall is just 5 to 7 minutes' walking distance from the hotel. If you want to enjoy the tranquility of Darjeeling you should choose this hotel. Special thanks to Mr. Arijit who helped me with the booking.
