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.
