We were 8 and an infant. We took 4 rooms except Paul. It is probably the cheapest hotel in Darjeeling, but without any doubt it is one of best hotels in India I have ever stayed in. They fulfill all your needs that they promise, if not more. After dropping our luggage, we went out to see some places nearby (yes, few were there for the first time). Once we were back, our rooms were ready and the sweetest thing was, they had noticed my little son (9 months) was there, they silently put an oil cloth in our room. They even serve baby-foods like Khichdi, Boiled rice vegetables (see Menu) for the infants. You don’t even need to carry sterilizer or water heater if you are staying there, because they clean and sterilize utensils for the baby and provided hot water whenever required.
The food (obviously, they serve for adults as well) was excellent. Taste and quality wise it was so good, you can feel how much effort they put on each and everything. People serving there (Sailesh and other) were very humble and ready to help you all the time. While departing our cab was 2 hours late and we had already checked out. We were waiting at the reception with our luggage. Sailesh came to me and said, “Sir, please let me know if you need to use the bathroom or need anything else”
I am definitely going back to this place. Last day was not so misty and we could see Kangchenjunga from the room (John and Brian have this facility)
On a lighter note. As you must be aware it is a Beatles themed Hotel, but has five rooms. When I first heard about this place few years back I was a little skeptical about what the name would be for the fifth room and thought it was Yoko. But felt so good to see there are people who remembered Brian Epstein.
