Poor service, even basic amenities like bathroom slippers are lacking. Cheap soap, shampoo form the bathroom toiletories. The entrance is dirty and is a steep climb. No complimentary breakfast. Bed quality is good but rooms lack any view and the hotel is not accessible by vehicle. Not a good choice.

Very Good property at around 600 mtrs from the famous Chowrasta. It's a new property with very clean and spacious rooms and washrooms. The food had limited menu in the restaurant. However food was tasty and Service by this guy named Tshering was excellent. They also have a Spa. The Spa Therapy was good. Overall an excellent property.

I booked Dinner in Sanderling Hotel Darjeeling,through makemytrip as an offer attached to my booking at Central Nirvana Darjeeling with a charge of Rs 695 for 1+1 dinner. Hotel refused the booking ,when I went there on 12th March, 2019 with my family.The booking was fully refundable upto 31.03 2019, but from the app it is not possible to cancel the booking. I tried for online chat,it failed, tried to mail,failed. I think they will not refund me.My advice to all not to book dinner in that hotel through makemytrip offer. It is just a fake. Regards,Sandip Sengupta

LIked the place very much. Located very close to the Mall. Very clean and classily decorated. If you stay at the topmost floor you can see The Kanchenjunga right from the hotel window. There will be stairs, but when you visit a hill station you are expected to climb. The hotel manager there was very helpful, arranged all our rides for sightseeing and back to NJP etc below whatever the rate was there in the taxi stand (we checked). Food is a bit costly, avoid if possible. Anyway, when you are in Darjeeling you don't eat hotel food. Overall, I definitely recommend it.

We visited darjeeling on 23rd and 24th of Jan and to be honest our experience wasn't so great. First of all the location wasn't very impressive. We had to walk through a dark alley to reach the hotel which wasnt a good experience. We climbed 5 storeys after a promise of a wonderful and luxurious rooms but to our dismay the rooms were way below our expectations. They looked dated, smelled funny, overall not a very nice place to spend the night in. However, the biggest letdown was one of its attendents Mr.Sohail Akhtar. We asked for an extra blanket as the night started to get chilly, his exact words to our request was "sb aapko de dnge to baki ko kya denge". For a person who is in service industry, he was absolutely a disaster. But to our disappointment, things didnt end here. On the morning of our departure, we requested the hotel manager to arrange for our luggage to be carried away to the taxi. Again Mr.Sohail had to intervene and quote "aise hi road pe chor dete h" and that too right infront of us. This angered all of us and led us to have a little scuffle with him. I recommend strict against him. The only good thing to mention here was the attitude of Mr. Chandan Sarkar, the hotel manager. Very well behaved, courteous and prompt. Even came down with us to help us board the taxi. To sum it up, staff courteousness can even make it up for a bad hotel experience.
