Excellent location near rajbhawan. Nice hospitality by Mr.Sarkar who takes personal care of all guests. Rooms are good with good view of hills. Local sightseeing can be arranged from hotel. Mall road market and other shopping places are at walkable distance.

Good hotel with excellent view from executive room. Food was satisfactory. Staff were friendly and cordial. The walk from the hotel to the Mal was great. The terrace is excellently arranged with flower. Just one suggestion of improvement of electrical plug points.

The hotel is situated near the Governor House- 7/8 minutes walk from the Mall Road.View of Kanchenjangha is very clear from the rooms 102/103/104. Rooms are very clean. Food available in the restaurant is good enough. However,there many other options like Glenary's & Keventer for eating out. Overall experience is good can be recommended to others.

Best part of this hotel is its location which offers you straight view of Kanchenzonga peaks from your room windows, food is good as compared to rates. You can take a walkers route to have a beautiful sight seeing of Darjeeling.

Proximity to mall is about 400m but no such inclination so it should not be any issue for elderly people. Food is not that great, even no of items in complementary breakfast is very less and limited. The best part of...

They called us one day before our arrival to confirm our booking...

The location of the hotel is one of the best in affordable price.Not too far from the mall, walkable distance. The manager of the hotel Mr Sarkar is an excellent person and very very helpful.Staffs are cordial. One can see Kanchenjunga peacks clearly from the rooms of 1st and 2nd floors. The only issue is food, which is so so....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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! ... more   less
