The Elgin Nor-Khill ("the house of jewels")is known for its tradition and ethnic Sikkimese ambiance. It is now a luxury heritage property. The Kanchan garden affords a rich view of the hills with the Mount Kanchenjungha in the background, which inspired the Chogyal (King) of Sikkim to paint for hours. The Elgin Nor-Khill was built by the King of Sikkim in 1932 and is the oldest heritage property in Gangtok, the property has played host to numerous celebrity guests such as his holiness The Dalai Lama, Hollywood stars Sir Richard Gere, Michael Douglas and Shirley Maclaine, the US Ambassador to India His Excellency John Galbraith and many more. The lobby is resplendent in the bright folk Sikkimese art with design motifs depicting dragons and flame symbols to thankas and ornate Sikkimese furniture (bachu, chocsue) and traditional jewelry.

We stayed there in Nor-Khill hotel, had an amazing stay because of the luxury and look and feel. Manager Mr. Basu is very helpful. Rooms and every corner of the hotel, the furniture gives a royal feel. Food wise it is good, but not one of the best. Chinese and continental dishes are way more better than Indian dish if we considers vegetarian items. Complementary breakfast offers variety of items. But we really missed the beautiful Piano tune during dinner, which was the best part of The Elgin, Darjeeling.

Went here for a dinner in their restaurant. The staff was courteous and kind enough to arrange us a candle light dinner. The food was equally nice. The hotel has a royal history. Make sure you visit if you want to have a romantic evening while at Gangtok😊

I am really pleased with the hospitality and service extended at this hotel. Its a heritage property turned into a 5* hotel. The look and feel is palatial and elegant. Every nook and corner oozes with royalty. The lobby is extravagant with plush sofas, for your chit chats and meetings. The lawn beside the lobby is the USP of the hotel. The view of the Kanchenjunga peak sneaking out of the mountains is a view to behold. The resident dog, Hilton was a delight for my kid. The hotel is situated just down the road from the main crossing leading towards the Paljor Stadium. The lawn has a bird's eye view of the Stadium. The whole property is carpeted and is very quaint & quiet. There is a separate space for the spa and/or salon. There is a lot of greenery in and around the property. Coming to the rooms, the setting is beautiful with wooden flooring and a very comfortable bed. We got the opportunity of a suite upgrade on our last day of stay, it turned out to be even better. The rooms have a good size and comes equipped with all relevant amenities and a heater for the winters. The bathroom had a bathtub and a large geyser, for that extra flow of hot water. The views from the rooms are not that great though. Another USP of the hotel was the lovely food they served. Each and every meal was brilliant. We stayed for a total of 5 nights there and each day we had something different to taste. For a specific lunch, we had ordered many off-the-menu dishes and the staff obliged us by cooking them deliciously. They were polite enough to cook baby food for my kid and give them in a flask for later consumption. They were extremely cordial and forward in there approach. They have a bar as well. The prices are a tad bit on the higher side.
