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....

Very Nicely located. Good Food, though bit expensive (one plate luchi costs Rs.90 excluding tax). Room and Bathrooms are big, but not maintained properly. I will recommend this and will again visit this govt property.
