Stayed at the Revolver in room Ringo pre and post my Singalila trek in October.

Corresponding with Vikash to make the booking was easy and straightforward with his prompt replies and helpfulness. Arranged transport from Bagdogra airport to the hotel was efficient with Vikash sending me the name of driver and car registration number prior to my arriving. This was reassuring for a first time to India solo female traveller.
The car had seat-belts,the driver friendly and very safe maneuvering the road climb with its dense traffic and tight bends.

Hotel has a warm welcoming atmosphere, felt more like a family guesthouse than a cold sterile hotel. I loved the Beatles theme and memorabilia especially the movie on the dvd in the rooms. Room was clean and cosy, bed comfortable with clean sheets and quilt, bathroom clean with plenty of hot water.

Manager Sailesh, what a lovely young man, very friendly and helpful, relaxed with a smile always.
I only ate the breakfasts which were yummy and so reasonably priced.

This hotel is popular for a very good reason, you need to book early to avoid disappointment. Wish my stay could have been longer.

I stayed at Revolver for 2 nights. Its a Beatles themed home-stay with 5 comfy rooms. The amount of attention to detail given to each of the rooms is worth appreciating. The breakfast and dinner is totally worth it! Its a walking distance from Darjeeling Mall. However cab drivers may charge extra as the road is one-way. As its a bit away from the main road, there is hardly any vehicular noise. I would like to stay at Revolver again whenever I visit next. One suggestion to hotel owners would be to spray room fresheners during rainy days.

Room Tip: As for a room with a view

This September I stayed here for five days and enjoyed every bit of it. The pros of the hotel are--
1. Wonderful ambience. For a solo traveller like me, it is superb. You can be at peace with yourself for sure.
2. The food is a great plus. The naga dinner was great. I loved the Continental dinner a lot.
3. The location is little away from the din. But it is just 5/7 minutes walk from Mall.
4. The people of this hotel. Every single one of this hotel right from owner Vikas to the people serving food and the house cleaner, is excellent. Special note of thanks for Shailesh, a real sweet guy.

Cons--
Don't come here if you are finicky. If you need to press the intercom for any reason or the other , this is not your place. Every single need is taken care of here but if someone wants that a boy will be there at his Beck and call, stay away from here.

Booked this hotel for the first two days of our summer trip this year (no rooms were available for the next three days and so, unfortunately had to shift to another place). This is just few minutes from the clock tower. So location was great. The place is really well maintained. Room and washroom was clean. They allow the use of geyser for longer duration, which helped a lot.

The room we got (George) had a wonderful view (not mountains. We actually do not care about mountain views. We love anything which looks good). There were more than one charging point, which is a big plus. This hotel is Beatles themed and the posters in the rooms and also the corridors and common areas add to the ambiance. The owner have a great Beatles related collection. Also there are some good comics in the ground floor dining room common area. So even if the weather is bad you can spend time here.

As this is not a typical hotel, there are certain rules you must follow. But for us most were fun, so we actually liked them. Like keeping the keys in the small letter boxes with combination lock (combinations for both the main gate and your room will be given to you once you check in) and locking the main gate if you are the last to return.

Food here is great. But they do not operate a regular restaurant. So you will have to order in advance. The breakfast platter and the naga dishes (some are really hot) for lunch / dinner are must try items here. They buy the sausages from Keventer's, but cook them much better. We bought their home made Thamba (bamboo shoot and dalley pickle) and it was awesome.

Only problem we faced was the bed was too soft for us. We prefer walking a lot during our travels. And after walking for 6-8 hours, sleeping on a bed that soft was a little uncomfortable.

It was a really enjoyable stay and we hope to book it again on our future trips.

Room Tip: The room 'George' was big and sunny.
