Arrived after a long drive from Bagdogra Airport, roads and traffic very interesting but not for nervous 😏. The road follows the single track toy train upto Darjeeling....wouldn’t recommend this as when leaving a car had crashed into the train. Hotel is nestled in the heart of town, a very classic colonial look and laid out over a number of levels (not suitable for a disabled person). Check in was quick and gave us time to view the very interesting Tenzing Norgay room fantastic pictures. Stayed in a suite which was lovely, just remember you are above 7000ft here and the rooms can get cold. Rose early to watch the sunrise from Tiger Hill over Kanchenjunga.....fantastic even able to see a very small Mt Everest in the distance. The sunrise experience is very much dependent on local cloud conditions...but worth the time. On the return to the hotel mid afternoon the room had not been cleaned, when we spoke with reception the one lady receptionist seemed disinterested in our request to have the room cleaned, asked for the room to be cleaned whilst on local walk and unfortunately it was still not done. Have been up since 04.30 this was now unfortunate, further requested the room be cleaned which it eventually was 😖. Food at both breakfast and the evening was very good, my only observation was that some staff uniforms in the dinning room were dirty. A visit to the Himalayan Climbing Institute and Gurkha War Memorial are worth the time. A nice hotel but let themselves down over a couple of issues.

A wonderful property amidst the busy hustle of Darjeeling topped by an even more wonderful staff who is always eager to help with a courteous smile even to our 3 year old kid. What acts as icing on the cake is the people overseeing, of the likes of Mr Biswajit, cultivates a philosophy of putting them selves in guest's shoes and ensuring a remarkable Service with a lasting impression, you will feel this down to the grass root where even the gate security staff are all on standby for your help.

Rooms and interior are well decorated and it has limited but sufficient parking and is close to mall, a reason why we chose this in the first place. The restaurant offers good variety options and food is excellent followed with nice hill view including the open lounge. There is ample hygeine precautions being followed in COVID times that brings in a sense of security in our minds. A must visit for a complete worry free stay in Darjeeling.

Comfort, Best Service, Tastiest food, Recreation rooms, Music, Library - Tell me what more you can think of and am sure you would find everyday at the grand resort of Mayfair in Darjeeling. A 5 minutes walking distance (Considering lesser speed in hilly roads) from Darjeeling Mall, one of the prime location it is standing tall and wide with typical 'mayfair-ish' classy look. I doubt if one can get a better service and a soother ambience. If you are visiting Darjeeling, mayfair resort can definitely add more to your experience.

We stayed in Darjeeling Mayfair during the new year for 3 nights. The booking charges were very heavy and we assumed that it was beacuse of the New year vacation that the charges are high, however just a day before we were informed through email that they will charge 7500 for adult couple and 3500 for the child for new year celebration which was not informed during booking and when we reached out, they rudely asked us to go through the company rule book. which was neither mentioned in the site when we book, nor could i find a rule book link in their reservation confirmation email.
The moment we entered we were welcomed by a Mayfair scarf, drinks and cookies. The ambience was beautiful and checkin experience was OK. The first day was sight seeing so we were pretty much away all day but the next two days we had a tough time.
1. They dont have hot water after few hours in the morning - with temprature dipping to 0 degrees if you say that we cannot start the boiler after morning, is it even acceptable??. Even during the boiler hours, water isnt nice hot, it was just above lukewarm. When repeatedly asked the house keeping they replied "Ithna garam kafi nahi hai kya" which means “isnt this heat enough for you?”
2. They are poor time keepers, their breakfast time starts 7:30 to 9, but for all those who are late comers they extend their Breakfast time to 10:30 or 11. Their lunch hour starts at 12:30 but since they keep breakfast kitchen open till 11, so their lunch started at 2. we are timely eaters and it was highly inconvenient to cope up with delay. There were foreign tourists who suffered this too, so in case you have your meals on time then may be its a wrong place to go.
3. We ate all our meals in the resort (payed a good price for it in advance). At the end of day 2 , me and my son had very bad stomach infection and so much that we had to rush to the emergency for getting an IV injection to arrest vomitting ( very suspicious about the quality of their food) and hence we were not a part of their new year dinner or party, they very well knew since they arranged a cab for us to the hospital but still charged us 11000 rupees for the new year party.

This was our first visit to Mayfair Darjeeling and we were mighty impressed ! From the moment we set foot on the property, we felt an aura of luxury and heritage. The staff at the reception warmly welcomed us with Darjeeling Tea in the lounge area which was immensely invigorating. Every staff member was extremely polite , gentle , caring and more than happy to help us with absolutely anything we needed at any point of time - be it hot water bags or medicines in the middle of the night ! I must particularly mention how kind Mr. Biswajit Das Sharma has been, who not only made us feel at home during our stay at the property, but went to great extent to ensure we had an excellent holiday. We'd fallen sick on our last night at the property and were originally supposed to check out the next morning , but Mr. Das Sharma greatly helped us in extending our stay (despite the resort being almost sold out at the weekend) to ensure we did not have to check out or travel while we were ill. He kept checking in on us, and even sent simple home style meals to our rooms to ensure our speedy recovery!

Given a choice, I would stay back for a week more , keep soaking in the grandeur of the property amidst the hills !

Had a pleasant stay at Mayfair Darjeeling for 3 nights. The hotel is located just opposite to Raj Bhavan. It took us nearly 3 hours to reach from the Bagdogra Airport. The checkin process was smooth with a warm welcome. The reception area was nicely decorated and the fireplace added warmth to the room. Our room was nice, spacious and had all facilities available. The hotel provided Room Heaters (2 types) which were sufficiently kept us warm. The bathroom had hot running water through out the day. The staff was courteous and helpful. Appreciate their thoughtfulness on providing hot water bags on chilly winter nights. The library room was very good and nicely decorated. Enjoyed the live music during the evenings. However, food was very average and overly priced. Overall had a very good stay.

Thanks,
Aritra

Everything from hospitality, staff, stay, food, location were superb EXCEPT PARKING FACILITY... This is the major notable drawback. They should look after this thing very seriously or should provide an alternate space nearby where travelers can put their personal vehicle.

First of all we are thankful to Mr Sabyasachi Mohanty, the Resort Manager, for his personal touch, attention and value add accorded to us during our stay in the second week of September 2022.

You get a feeling of having arrived for a different experience the moment you enter Mayfair Darjeeling. Colourful ambience, richly furnished, tastefully decorated with so many paintings and pictures make this facility an exclusive one.

Rooms are spacious, buffet breakfast sumptuous, and the live singing in the evening will make your stay a memorable one.

Although the resort is self – contained, if one wishes to go to the city centre (Chaurasta), it is an 8 minutes walk from the resort

Surely look forward to staying at Mayfair Darjeeling again and at their other locations in times to come

What a beautiful hotel. 5 stars all the way!

Staff: incredibly hospitable and courteous. Excellent service from room service to reception to security guards.
Food: They offer lunch and dinner buffet and it’s amazing. They offer a massive variety of north, south, and western options. Hats off to all the chefs!
Location: The hotel itself has no views, but within steps away from the hotel there is a lovely scenic view of the Kanchenjunga mountains. The hotel is walking distance to the chowrasta (bazaar).

All rooms and common areas are so clean and well maintained. The hotel has great amenities like pool table, ping pong table, and chess tables. The room smells so divine. 110% recommend.

A note to tourists - the hotel itself has a travel desk and you can book sightseeing and day trips from there that are decently priced, along with booking a taxi to/from bagdogra airport (much cheaper than going through a tour operator).

Does not live up to the same standards as Mayfair Siliguri. Our confirmed booking was a twin room in Lloyds cottages. When we arrived we were advised that Lloyd’s cottage does not have any twin rooms. We were then downgraded to a lower floor / lower quality room ( not offered any refund for the downgrade)which was quite dark and dingy and noisy but did have twin beds. The next day I made a complaint. The lady at the reception desk told us that she did not take responsibility for the problem because it was the travel agent and the Mayfair booking company problem. I showed her our booking confirmation which we had also paid. Naturally we disagreed and had to press the issue. She eventually said she would put us in Lloyd‘s cottages and make up a sofa bed. This was better than nothing we supposed. When we returned from our outing that day they had upgraded us to adjoining rooms so we had two king beds and two bathrooms which was all very good. Should’ve been done in the first place. The food is not great except if you order a la Carte which is very nice and much better than the buffet. The hotel don’t seem to follow any Covid policies as one of the female waitresses was coughing and sniffing a lot but continued to work in the dining room. She coughed all over the napkins she was folding , several times. I didn’t have confidence that surfaces were being wiped down to help reduce the spread of infections.
They don’t start breakfast till 7.30 so you are out of luck if you have an early start. There are a lot of steps to this hotel so if you don’t like steps I wouldn’t recommend it. The rooms are not well sound-insulated and you can hear people walking around your room at night and also a lot of dogs barking.
