This tourist lodge has got a wonderful location which is on top of the observatory hill and a 2 minutes walk to the mall. It has got a straight view of the Kanchenjunga from the room itself. An outstanding experience with a garden in front of the lodge. The food is also awesome.

Great view of Mt. Kanchenjunga from the room. Breakfast is just okay. Prices are pretty standard but the size of rooms are big. Food quality in the restaurant is nothing more than ordinary. Location wise it is awesome as all the markets and malls are nearby. Would be staying there again.

The hotel is pretty good. The Annex building does not provide any view at all but is very cheap compared to the main building. The rooms in the main building provides awesome views of Kanchenjunga. The food is quite good however it does not have much variety. The breakfast provided also does not have much variety. Overall a nice stay.... More

I visited the place in summer 2016. It was my first visit to this place. I made advance booking a few months back but failed to get any room in main building and satisfied myself with two double rooms in annex building. Room and toilet were clean and so as bed. Dining hall and bar is very nice and spacious.... More
