We are a 2-storey Heritage House of India – originally built in 1871 - as a “quietly comfortable and elegant” Boarding House for British Raj families”. Famous names like ‘Vivien Leigh’ (of ‘Gone with the Wind’) and ‘Julie Christie’ (of ‘Dr. Zhivago’) used to live here. Sir George Everest, the Survey General of India (who discovered Mt. Everest as the highest point on earth) was here, along with Col.Younghusband, who led the British Expeditionary force to Lhasa, Tibet (then a forbidden country to enter). The House was also occupied by the Vicereine of India, Lady Curzon (wife of the then Viceroy); Sir Charles Bell (Indian Civil Service – British Political Officer for Sikkim, Bhutan and Tibet); George Mallory and Andrew Irvine – British mountaineers who disappeared below the summit of Everest in 1924 and alas, never returned. ‘Ivanhoe’ was, of course, one of King Arthur's beloved knights of ‘The Knights of the Round Table’ fable (or was it true?!)Today, we are delighted to see a rising tide of discerning domestic guests, who relish a stay in “an old place from the Indian Colonial days”. We also host the stays of overseas guests (with, or without, family), who feel that an old Colonial home is just right for them!

An old colonial house beautifully maintained. The rooms are large and well kept. I am referring only to the main house and not the annex.

Staff excellent and very helpful. Breakfast is good. However, found food pricing to be bit high for Darjeeling.

Overall a decent place to s

"Always ask for a room in the main house"
"Got a spacious room "Juie Christie" for myself solo. Large double bed and also a second single bed to do your repacking"
"Do not choose Room 5, some of the others were reasonable."
"My advice, pl refrain from patronizing the Hotel Ivanhoe, Darjeeling"
"room next to the dining area the best.."
