Indeed an amazing place to relax and enjoy your vacations..Deluxe rooms are big, cozy and has all required amenities. Bathroom is big with geyser. Service is quick and efficient..Food is just awesome . Mr Gurung and his family really knows the true meaning of hospitality and takes good care of their guests..A must visit place..

Room tip: Delux Rooms are the best

A nice place to relax your Holidays !!!
Excellent hospitality from Gurung family especially from Mr Dipendra Gurung. Do not expect facilities of a star rated city hotel but the homely ambience will definitely last in your memory for years to come. 'Gurung's Guest House' is a nice option for accommodation in Tinchuley (A small village on the way to Kalimpong & Darjeeling).
In our short trip over the long weekend, altogether, it was a nice and memorable experience and we cherished our every moment with family.

Room tip: Excellent view of sunrise from front side balcony.

Those have experiences in other homestay especially at Sikkim can feel the differences. Believe me I know its a remote place and in Tinchuley you can't expect anything like a city hotel, and thats the beauty of the place. A small hamlet with 14-15 families, tea gardens , pine forests, teesta and rangit river view and if your luck permits breathtaking views of Mt. Kanchenjunga .. what else you expect from a place.

The location of the guest house is not at all great .. yes just beside a small road and there is no view of Mt. Kanchenjunga from the guest house. Rooms are very big .. yes really very big even the bath room, very clean , 24*7 hot water available with geyser facility. comfortable bed , room heater available. They have a common terrace and varanda from there you can see the kalimpong city , but remember no snow capped peaks.. the view point is almost 10 minutes walk from the guest house.

Food is good but again not great!! They served organic vegetables, chicken currys, rice, dal, fish fried (not fresh came from Siliguri), ghee from own dairy, roti in night. In breakfast puri, sabzi, or toast. Foods are tasty and less spicy, I have nothing to say about food beacuse I know what you can get in a homestay.

I had experiences to stay in other homestays and compare to those the so called "warmth" of this guest house I feel somehow little artificial. I can't find anybody around in kitchen/dining places beyond lunch and dinner hours and which is also very short period of time. Only morning tea with biscuits and evening tea without biscuits served and the so called "tea" is a stained warm liquid without any taste. I am sorry but I am very disappointed about the tea because , this place is actually surrounded by wonderful tea gardens. No snacks , no momos , nothing .. believe me this is beyond my expectations, Homely atmosphere and Homestay does not mean everything very dull and variety less.

When you stay and enjoy your holidays in a cold place, hot beverages is a must and should come number of times. Remember they are charging Rs. 3K -4K for rooms only , and Rs. 600 per day per head for food.

Over all an average experiences of stay though the place is really beautiful. I had expected more real warmth and hospitality from this guest house.

My suggestions to Mr. Gurung - Please keep tea/coffee makers in rooms ,and please come and talk with your guests , or inform atleast about the menus. A few little changes can make your place fantastic.

Remember homestay is not an out of the world concept and people are paying you with taxes.

Room tip: No snow capped mountain views from any rooms

Tinchuley is a small village on the way to Kalimpong and Gurung guest house is the best of Tinchuley. Nice location. 5 minutes walking distance from sunrise point. Staffs are very good and homely. Owner Mr. Dipendra Gurung is a nice human being. Fooding is excellent and the service is very good. They can arrange sight seeing around Tinchuley. We loved and relished the entire period of staying here.
