Very conveniently located, not a sprawling property yet not at all cramped - this is one of the best stays in Kalimpong. The rooms are not very big but quite adequate with a great view - at least from the room I stayed in. The small garden was a riot of colours. The restaurant was quite good with a limited...

Cosily perched on the slopes of the Kalimpong hills , a short stay in this re'treat' is a 'treat' by itself . Beautiful , clean and well appointed rooms with windows opening out to the view of the majestic Mt.Kanchanjhangea in all its snow capped glory glistenning under the first rays of the dawn . The refreshing flora of the...

I stayed overnight in this hotel. Since I wanted to work and required internet connection I chose the room next to the reception. It doesn't have the valley view but then you need to let go something for the larger interest. (The rooms do not have WIFI access its only in the lobby that one can access WIFI.) When I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
8.5 Miles is where you will find us, just 800 meters before the hustle and bustle of the market area set amidst nature with a breathtaking view, on the sunniest part of the hills. For whatever you have in mind you can't be better located. Near to all the site seeing interests. Laze on the rolling lawns or just admire the glory of the mighty Mt. Kanchenjunga from the restaurant, balconies or lawns. Let the children get naughty on the outdoor play area, swings and slides. ... more   less
