“An excellent stay with authentic traditional cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2011

Rooms: Beautiful, well lit and come with instant geysers, electric blanket and generator back up

Decoration: exquisite with all the Beatles memorabilia. Specially a small model of Phonograph playing "Imagine" tune when rotated.

Service: Excellent. A young service boy was sent to pick me up from Darjeeling Station, and I did not have to wait for him, he was waiting for us.

Cuisine: Great. From the morning piping hot black Darjeeling tea to the Yabako platter of the dinner. Specially I liked the Yabako chicken curry a lot.

Apart from these, a well stocked library, board games for kids and a TV in the upper floor lounge with a Dish TV connection is enough to keep a lazy evening occupied.

Now, me or my family can not think of Darjeeling without Revolver. Next time, when we go to Darjeeling we can not think of anything but Revolver for our stay.
For the photos, I would like to thank the owners for allowing me to photograph their property and post it here and elsewhere.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, Paul and John are little bigger.

Darjeeling is an incredible place and the Revolver is a great choice for budget travelers.

We stayed in the Lennon room and were very happy with the cleanliness and service. The room was a little small as was the bathroom, but for the price, it was the best deal for our whole trip to india.

WE loved the communal areas where we chatted to other travelers as well as locals.

The food was wonderful and our favorite thing was the attentive service from the family that owns the place.

Walking to town or local spots took anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes but strolling this hill station is one of the best things to do.

This place is a gem !

Unvelievably welcoming and helpful staff. Very clean and relaxing rooms, and plenty of books, games, and films to watch when the monsoon rains make staying in your only choice. Only spent two nights there but wish we could have stayed longer. Having spent the previous week in a very humid and intense Kolkata, coming up to Darjeeling and staying in such a nice hotel, completely recharged my batteries. Cant fault the place at all.

I travel a lot but never found a hotel like Revolver. It's unthinkable of staying in Darjeeling without Revolver. A fantastic experience with great hospitality. Kudos to the people who run the hotel. I have fallen in love with 'Revolver'.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of choice.

'Revolver' was the best bet in Darjeeling. Our stay in Darjeeling was for 3 days and Revolver made the stay in Darjeeling the best.

The owner Asenla is really very sweet and helpful. Even the staff was very nice. We stayed in George and Paul.

Though we missed the Naga Kitchen- but I will be back very soon in Darjeeling with my whole bunch of friends and family.

I love the ambience and the look and the place!
5 stars to Revolver!

Thanks ASenla and her team!
