I and my wife along with few others stayed at Khush Alaya for two nights 16th & 17th of May, 2016. The access road is very steep and impossible to take a walk and see the old Monastery at the entrance. The cottage allotted to us was very small and soiled towels were not replaced. Food was good and staff...

The hotel is situated way away from the darjeeling market, rooms were a bit small, and service was near to pathetic, the only good thing was their polite staff and food they served. The first day for us was a disaster as we got a room with leaky toilets and stained linens and towels, they shifted us to the lobby...

We booked the resort via RCI to stay for 7 days - from 22nd April to 29th April. The resort is located at a walking distance of 15 minutes from Ghoom Railway Station - can be a problem for elderly people as the lane is steep. We checked in at 11:30 PM. Although this was prior to the usual timing...
