We stayed 3 nights at Goomtee, in the Director’s Bungalow. We had a wonderful time. It is obviously a very old property and you have to make allowances for its antiquity but then that’s part of its charm. The staff were lovely and the food great. The tea is amazing.
I have stayed at your property and have liked it, however your reservation or whoever is involved with handling emails are really negligent. I have written a few emails and have also tried to call in the phone number given at your website. No one answers the phone and no one has cared to response my emails. I wanted to make reservations for my group in April and I have written many emails, but no response. Negligence to clients queries is not good for the reputation of such a nice property!
Great old tea bungalow maintained properly and very clean. Food served are made of local vegetables. Nice homely feeling in nature. Small equipped tea factory. Nice people guide throughout the factory followed by tea tasting. Awesome relaxing stay. Will go again.
This is a tea-garden based bunglow with 4 Rooms, called a Retreat located just one and a half hours from Siliguri amongst lush green tea-gardens and decorated lawns and garden. Its ambience promises to offer a change from the din and bustle of city-life, in peaceful solitude. But its exorbitant room-tariff surprizes you when u find different lack of facilities inspite of such high pricing! Most of the lamp-shades do not work in the living area, washroom equipments are wornout and function poorly, food is not only vegetarian but far from tasty, spiders and snalis are co-existing with us! Amidst all problems, the behaviour of the staff are worth-appreciating.....considering the little resources they are provided with! Thus it is a humble request to the management to explore this beautiful place in a more well-maintained, user-friendly manner and transform this place as a Retreat... worth for money! …
We stayed in this tea garden retreat for one day, the stay was absolutely delightful. It is a serene place with beautiful surroundings (unlike the chaotic Darjeeling city). The experience of guided tour to the tea gardens and tea factory along with the tea tasting sessions was amazing. The kids had a great time in their lush green lawns, badminton, table tennis and other indoor facilities. The food served was so fresh and tasty. Overall a great experience which has created wonderful memories! An absolute recommended place to visit if you are going to Darjeeling!
