The hotel located at the higher altitude. I stayed there for 3 nights. The journey to the Hotel is exciting & you will amaze to see the skill of the driver. Beautiful rooms & if there is clear sky, you can see Kanchanjangha from your room. This is one of my memorable stay. The hotel also has Pick-up & drop facility to Mall road.

Cedar Inn is a Victorian style hotel which is maintained well. The wooden floor with all the well carved ceiling and coziness of the place gives you great comfort . The garden , patio are done with good taste which makes you to feel the warmth of the place . Rooms are good size with space to lounge . However bathroom fitting are old now and needs replacement. Yet the cleanliness was not compromised . Hospitality is at a different level and I would give above 5 star . It shows that it’s embedded in each person we met in the hotel . Specially need to mention Mr Siddharth ( GM) who has an amazing character of being with guest for every need and also to guide their stay in Darjeeling . If you don’t want to be on the Mall but need a great place with best Hospitality, will surely recommend Cedar Inn . The only improvement is the breakfast . Loved the place and will surely stay again

Really enjoyed staying at Cedar Inn. Located at a higher altitude than other hotels, Cedar Inn's view is to die for. You can wake up and enjoy the Kanchenjunga over a cup of Darjeeling tea or a pot of coffee.While other hotels are "closer" to the mall, Cedar Inn's 2 km distance is worth it because of the views. Moreover, they have a regular shuttle service that drops you by the mall. Their restaurant is also fantastic and I really enjoyed their breakfast and dinner buffets. We also had lunch their one day and the food was excellent. The staff is extremely courteous and the property is very beautiful. Highly recommend staying here if you come to Darjeeling.

This absolutely gorgeous boutique hotel has been an amazing experience for us four friends meeting after the pandemic from four different cities! This hotel is just in Jalapahar Road a few minutes away from the mall road in Darjeeling which is great as we are ‘far away from the madding crowd’! The service is outstanding and every nook and corner of this magnificent hotel is designed to please the eye and calm the senses! Food is quite good specially the breakfast is not to be missed! I would love to come back to this hotel if the following amenities are included! 1. Spa facilities 2. Fully functional bar! 3.Heated lounges to sit and relax to have tea or read books or chat with friends etc. The Managing Director of this place is a charming man who kindly told us the history of this hotel and explained a lot about Tibetan traditions of praying and meditation. All in all a lovely stay!

Beautiful property, courteous & hospitable staff. Every single staff beginning at Front office, Housekeeping, Room Service and even at the entrance gate was friendly and helpful. We were traveling with a toddler and they arranged everything that we demanded. Cannot complain and can only be grateful for their hospitality. We were fortunate to secure an upgrade without any effort and we loved our room. The property has good views to offer and they have ample open areas to experience the weather & beauty of Darjeeling.

Quite simply superb... a bit far away from "central" Darjeeling so in essence one has to dine at the hotel but that's no real problem, the menu is varied (or as much so as elsewhere) and the cook is very good. The welcome is wonderful, the rooms very cosy and comfortable. Everybody is exceedingly helpful and there's a shuttle service to and from downtown...

When we were researching hotels for Darjeeling, we debated between Elgin and Mayfair. Then, while reading all the TripAdvisor reviews, we realized that there was only one hotel in all of Darjeeling that provided the view of Kanchenjunga from most of its rooms. That hotel happened to be Cedar Inn. When we read the reviews for Cedar Inn, we were very much surprised because the reviews were stellar. This is generally not the case, because when a hotel has a big selling point (the view in this case) they get arrogant, and service deteriorates. So for us the choice was made and we further negotiated to upgrade our booking (made via Booking.com) to an Executive room. From the time we got picked up at Bagdogra airport to the end of our stay, we could not have been more pleased. Our room was on the 3rd floor with a magnificent view of Mount Kanchenjunga from the main window, and the beautiful Darjeeling valley view from the other windows. It was an absolute treat that we savored for the four days, we stayed at the hotel. The room had a large bathroom, a cozy siting area with a fire place, a decent bedroom with a large bed. Our bed came with electric mattress and this was nice when temperature fell at night. The standard amenities like tea & coffee were provided. We also got some fruits and cake (that I loved). The breakfast spread was super with pretty much everything one can desire. The masala omelets made by chef were pleasing to the palette. And to add to that were idlys, vadas, parathas and pulkas (different choices for different days). To top it up, a nice aroma full cup of Darjeeling tea. We looked forward to the breakfast, every morning. Most evenings, we had dinner in our room. The food, again, was well prepared and tasty. On top of that, it was always delivered dot on time (as we had requested). The hotel is clean, and the service is definitely well above par. The general tone of the service is set by the Hotel’s general manager, Mr. Siddartha. Being an ISO certified level 3 hotelier, he expects nothing less. We did get to spend a lot of time with him, understanding his philosophy as it pertains to running Cedar Inn. The receptionist Ms. Priyanka was always there to listen to us with a smile. We also had the opportunity to meet and talk to the MD of the hotel Mr. Tenzing Bhutia. Let me make a few observations about the location of the hotel. Naturally, to provide such a stellar view of the mountain, it is expected that the hotel has to be perched on top of a hill and that it exactly where it is. So, if one is looking to be at the Darjeeling mall, well then, I would recommend otherwise. However, for us, coming down the steep hill to get to the mall was quite enjoyable. If walking is not your fancy, the hotel does provide complimentary transportation during a two hour window, in the morning and evening, every day. Life, off course, can never be without glitches, so we did face a few. Having said that, what to us made a difference, was the sincere attempt by the staff to fix the issues. The power line in our room kept tripping and this affected the Wi-Fi router and the Bathroom water heater. Also, the internet and the TV stopped working on the last day. All in all, a very pleasant stay that lent itself for some beautiful memories to be reminisced long into the future.

Staff is very polite and food is great and the view from the rooms is mesmerising, there is no point going to tiger hill as you can see Kanchenjunga mountain from the hotel itself if you wake up early There is only one issue they have not renovated the hotel as per today’s standards and so it feels little old but they have renovated bathrooms so it’s good Otherwise the hotel is well maintained and the gardens are as well very great Had a great time staying there
